Went for our 4th visit just last Sunday, we only done the swim once though.
It's our favourite park, so relaxing and tranquil , never busy, the food is lovely and no,shortage of snacks too .

We spent ages in the aviary with the birds, just love it.

thanks for this.

I've only been to discovery cove to do the dolphin swim, but it's a lot of fun. (I've never spent an entire day their!)

Thanks Simon, we intend to be there the whole day and will aim to arrive before 8.00 am to avoid the breakfast queues.

We went in December - it was a hot sunny day, but after swimming in the reef (which is very cold) it was impossible to warm back up so we called it a day and got changed. I would say leave the reef until last!

During our holiday we had some cold, frosty days which wouldn't have been ideal at D/Cove. I actually called to change our date while there as the forecast for the day we had originally booked was bad!

Thanks that's very helpful. I appreciate it would be a bit hit and miss but I feel it would be a shame to miss it out altogether as it wasn't there last time I went to Orlando, and who knows when I might go again!

I have seen an Armadillo and a Sloth there. I also got to meet the oldest sloth in Busch Gardens during my visit.



The sloth is on the right just in case you were wondering
