Orlando Day 3: Discovery Cove

Day 3 in Orlando was the best day by far.  :)  I got to swim with dolphins, which is something I've wanted to do my whole life.  It was sooooooo much fun.  Unfortunately, I didn't get any pictures of me with the dolphins.  They were a whopping $20 per picture...and that was just a print out, not even a digital copy.  Maybe next time (I've already told Dave we're going back when we're done having kids and they're old enough to appreciate the experience) we'll save our pennies up ahead of time and purchase a picture package.

Anyway, I did get pictures of some of the other awesome things we go to do.  It was definitely a great day.

This is how close you could get while just standing on the shore.

Part of the dolphins' swimming area.

There was a bird aviary that you could walk through and feed the birds.

The lazy river also went through the aviary.

I thought these birds were so neat...

...but was a little grossed out when I found out they were meat eaters.

I don't know if I was supposed to pet the birds, but, um, I did.

This is the area where you could swim with the sting rays and feed them.

This is the area where you could swim with the manta rays and tropical fish.

The food was pretty yummy. And included with the ticket price, yippee. It was all you could eat and drink, all day long.

We went out in a group like this to swim with the dolphins. We got to pet one as it swam right in front of us and instruct it to do tricks. We also got to have another one pull us each individually from deep water into shallow water.

It was such a great vacation. All thanks to my hubby for planning such a great birthday present. :)
