Top 12 Things to Do in Orlando With Kids (2023 Guide) – Trips To Discover

Discovery Cove

What Is It? Not a traditional amusement park, Discovery Cove, owned by SeaWorld, is an experience that keeps families in and near the water all day.

Why Do It? The day resort allows you to snorkel in the reef, float down the winding river or end the day on the sands of the freshwater bay. You’ll see flamingos, hundreds of birds you can hand feed, rays, and fish. Also included in the all-inclusive price are breakfast, lunch, snacks, and beverages (including alcohol). Lockers, showers, wetsuits, towels, and free parking are also included. For an additional price, swim with dolphins, where you’ll learn more about how they live and their habits.

Good to Know: A Certified Autism Center, the staff at Discovery Cove have special training to work with guests with special needs, and a sensory guide is available for families.
