SeaWorld is introducing Discovery Cove Vacations – a new online booking tool that allows guests to design a custom-tailored package that meets their specific travel needs.
All packages start with a day at Discovery Cove, an all-inclusive resort park best known for its dolphin swim experience. Once they’ve planned their visit, guests can add a hotel stay in one of 16 partner hotels, many within walking distance.
All packages include unlimited admission to SeaWorld Orlando and Aquatica for 14 consecutive days around the date of the reservation, as well as reserved seating at SeaWorld’s shows, 10% off dining and merchandise purchases in the park, early park access on select days, and one Cup that Cares, a build-your-own personalized penguin-shaped character cup available exclusively at SeaWorld’s Antarctica – Empire of the Penguin. In addition, guests who chose any of the Official Hotels of SeaWorld also receive front-of-line access on rides, complimentary transportation to the parks, and access to the exclusive SeaWorld Rescue Tour, a behind-the-scenes look at SeaWorld’s rescue and rehabilitation facilities. All hotels also offer a fifth night free.
SeaWorld estimates the average savings for a family of four is as much as $400.
“One of the biggest benefits of booking a vacation with us is the level of trust guests can have in the process,” said Toni Caracciolo, vice president of marketing and sales for SeaWorld Parks & Resorts. “Our partner hotels offer a wide range of price points and amenities, and they all maintain the same level of quality and customer service guests have come to expect from our parks. It’s like having a local friend guide you to all the best places while you’re in town.”
Discovery Cove is a one-of-a kind, highly interactive marine park where guests swim with bottlenose dolphins, snorkel among thousands of tropical fish and rays, and play in a fresh-water river. The all-inclusive day resort also has an on-site aviary where guests hand-feed exotic birds.
Guests can help themselves throughout the day to freshly prepared meals like sweet Hawaiian chicken, fire-grilled fish and burgers, summer salads and homemade mac-and-cheese. Snacks as well as beer, wine and frozen daiquiris are available all-day to guests.
Wetsuits, snorkel gear, showers and changing facilities, towels, lockers and environmentally safe sunscreen are complimentary. Private cabanas with hammocks, lounge chairs and a well-stocked fridge are available for an additional fee.
