Discovery Cove offers discounted tickets

September is a great month to find specials for local residents in Florida. Orlando theme parks have slowed down and discount tickets are plentiful. SeaWorld Orlando has advertised their $50 week day special, so most people know about this great deal. A lesser-known discount ticket special can be found for their sister park Discovery Cove, and includes other park admission.

For the rest of this year, Florida residents should definitely consider taking advantage of this deal. For as little as $149, you can visit Discovery Cove and after that visit, go to SeaWorld or Aquatica for free! As long as you go to Discovery Cove first – and before December 31, 2013, you’ll be able to go to the other parks through the end of next January.

What sets Discovery Cove apart is the Dolphin Swim Day Resort package, which is as low as $219 for Florida residents during this special. Treat yourself and take advantage of this greatly discounted Orlando attraction ticket. You’ll have an experience of a lifetime. This package includes food and snacks, the dolphin swim, use of snorkel gear and more. Combined with the fact that you get in to the other parks for free, makes this a fabulous deal.

Make your day even more special by adding the SeaVenture experience. This is the underwater walking tour where you adorn dive helmets and join schools of fish, rays and other sea creature up close and personal. You do not need to be SCUBA certified, however, some rules still do apply. You should not drink alcoholic beverages before the tour, nor should you fly for a few hours after.

Proof of a valid Florida residency is required at check-in, and the offer cannot be combined with any other special. If you are not a Florida resident, special ticket deals can be found for you too! Instead of $149, your price will be about $169 – $199; for the Dolphin Swim package, your price will be $229 – $259, and the SeaVenture price at $59.

Since the temperatures in Central Florida are still quite warm, there is no difference in visiting Discovery Cove now or in the heat of the summer. There will be fewer visitors, shorter lines, more room to play in the water and the sweet relief from the heat under shaded trees and umbrellas. Swimming with the dolphins is such a treat, everyone should experience it once in their lifetime. At this discounted ticket price, you might even offer to share this experience with your best friends. After all, memories are priceless, and these Orlando ticket deals don’t get much more affordable.
