Overview

Discovery Cove is an Orlando, Florida theme park in which guests can interact with a variety of marine animals, most notably bottlenose dolphins. The park, which is operated by the Busch Entertainment Corporation (the theme park division of Anheuser-Busch) is adjacent to SeaWorld Orlando. In addition to swimming with dolphins, Discovery Cove guests can interact with exotic birds, tropical fishes, sharks, rays and land mammals.

The park differs from other U.S. theme parks in both admission price, which approaches $280 per guest (peak season), and in the fact that reservations are required. A Discovery Cove admission includes breakfast, lunch, all you care to drink AB products (for those 21 and up), equipment rental and ticket to either SeaWorld Orlando or Busch Gardens Tampa Bay. The park recently launched a program called "Twilight Discovery" that also includes a gourmet dinner and drinks.
