We went in September, I paid £60 from travel republic for my ticket and had the seaworld option too.
Discovery cove is fantastic and at that price its unbelievably good value.
We had the best day of our holiday there, very special. My husband did the swim with dolphin and tbh, I really wish I had now, it was very gentle and they were in the water for a good half an hour.
The snorkelling over the reef is brilliant and then snorkelling down the lazy river was fab too.
Breakfast is continental and lunch was great, plenty of choice.
There are less people allowed in each day so its more relaxed, free drink and food all day, 1 complimentary pic when you arrive also

Go for it! the kids will love it, it really is a fantastic place and I love seaworld too.
I bought the tickets online and just stated the seaworld option.
We managed to cram a lot into our 14 days, we did seaworld, discovery cove, universal studios, universal islands of adventure (harry potter world is amazing and the ride in the castle is awesome) disney magical kingdom, hollywood studios, animal kingdom, epcot, typhoon lagoon (which seemed pants after discovery cove, but we maybe should have gone to blizzard beach instead?) airboat ride, we also went to tampa to see kings of leon gig.

We had a fabulous holiday, infact I'm finding it hard to choose another place for our next holiday!
Are you staying in a hotel or villa? I can strongly recommend villas, so much more relaxed

We went 4 yrs ago and had booked dis cove for our last full day,we told the kids they were going somewhere else so had to get up early,they loved it and my son who has aspergers and doesnt really show emotion said it was the best day of his life,was worth paying £150 each for them to do it

we have a virgin villa booked, we have done the disney twice in the last 2 years but only went once to seaworld and universal so there are the parks that we are hitting but with discovery cove deal thats another day onto the list !
hubby wants to do the airboat ride but i am being cautious with my 2 girls in tow (6 & 8) are they good and safe and where did you book that ?

We have also gone the last two years and have booked both of our villas through ebay, you get a much nicer villa at a better rate that way - we've had two two stunning villa's. Last year we paid £540 for two weeks for a 4 bed, 3 bath, pool, games room etc in davenport, this year we paid £800 for a 5 bed house, with 4 bathrooms, pool, games room etc.
It was boggy creek airboat rides and we booked ours through orlando ticket deals, however its actually a couple of dollars cheaper if you just turn up and pay on the day - there are usually booklets knocking about with loads of discount codes in them too.
At 6 and 8 your girls would be absolutely fine, you have seats in the middle of the boat and it felt very smooth and safe. It was fab, we got to see new born baby alligators and everything!
I'd definately pay the little extra and have the private boat trip, much nicer and a longer trip - the trip is approx 45 mins :)

good to hear everyone had a good time. We are going to florida for part of our honeymoon at the end of next month and cannot wait! hoping to do the gator park, airboat and discovery cove (already booked!).
Just need to book tickets for universal now......any deals for a 1 day ticket??

We had our two day universal tickets for £74 from undercovertourist, they were the 14 day ones when they arrived too. Undercovertourist states that they can take a couple of weeks to arrive but when were here in about 6 days
