Discovey Cove does not feel like a amusment park you feel like your at a resort, very layed back, not to many people since they only let 1000 people in a day, good food that is included and all the drinks and snacks you want, also included. The dolphin pool was out of this world. They took some great pictures of us all with the dolphins and a video, not included but a must have. I could keep going, can you tell that we loved it!!

By the way the ticket cost includes 7 days to Sea World and I'm not sure but it may include sea worlds water park that will open soon or may be open already. That makes the price for DC not seem to bad.

First off I love this thread. Nice to see other dads who "get it"

DW and I did discovery cove twice in the past few years, it really is a great place to spend a day. Won't tell you how surprised I was when I saw rather large shark swimming right next to me
it is in a tank that has a glass wall under water in the snorkeling pond and the glass is hard to see

Love the lights

OK so what does she use to make the Mickey heads I'd love to use them on my front porch.

BTW possible addition to the qualifying list, putting the sound from the Disney Cruise line "Magic" horns on my truck??

The sharks didn't scare me as much as the Barracuda. Talk about a mean looking fish!

Welcome to our suport group. Some of us don't have enough support @ home so we depend on this thread (thanks fanatic for starting, I owe ya): Although, the closer it gets to our trip (48 days) the better it gets.
