Florida Theme Parks

Orlando is full of theme parks, but you will never experience one quite like Discovery Cove. At Carl’s Van Rentals, we’re all for the traditional Disney experience, but are you looking for something unique, interactive, and pretty much amazing? Then look into Discovery Cove. Here’s what it’s all about.

What is Discovery Cove?

Discovery Cove is an all-inclusive day resort where you can interact with some of Florida’s favorite creatures in crystal clear waters, top-notch beaches, and beautiful landscapes. People come to Discovery Cove from all over to experience this top-rated amusement park. And why not? With up-close animal experiences, unlimited food and drinks, and adventure around every corner, you won’t want to leave.

What kind of animal experiences do they have?

If you’ve ever wanted to swim with a dolphin or snorkel over a coral reef, Discovery Cove is just the place. Animal encounters include:

  • Feeding tropical birds
  • Swimming with bottlenose dolphins
  • Playing near sea otters
  • Swimming with sharks
  • Feeding a stingray

You can do these things and more, including swimming in their high-caliber resort pools, complete with waterfalls. At Discovery Cove, you’re never far from a unique animal experience.

What more do I need to know?

Discovery Cove is unique in that it limits the number of people it lets into the park each day. That way, you can feel like you can fully enjoy your animal and resort experiences, without having to stand in long lines. The park is open every day from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., and we recommend that you book your tickets in advance, especially if you’re from out of town. To get all the details or to book your all-inclusive day, check out the Discovery Cove website.

How do I get there?

No matter where you stay in Orlando, you can easily get to Discovery Cove for your day away. You can find many hotels right on the premises in case you want to be nearby, or you may decide to stay at a hotel a little farther away and rent a van to get there. If you’re in need of a van rental, you know who to call. Carl’s Van Rentals has the best selection and pricing of any minivan, passenger van, or even Jeep rental in the greater Orlando area.
