Afternoon showers are common during the summer months in Orlando and safety is our #1 concern.
We closely monitor weather conditions and for the safety of our guests, team members, and animals, we may suspend operations during periods of inclement weather, including thunder, and lightning. During these periods guests may be asked to evacuate pools, reefs, and dining areas to seek shelter.
Water activities will still continue during rain storms, including:
• Dolphin Lagoon and Interaction
• Freshwater Oasis®
• The Grand Reef®
• Serenity Bay
• Wind-Away River
In the event a named tropical storm or hurricane is predicted to approach Orlando or Tampa, Discovery Cove will determine storm-impacted days and enact our Named Storm Policy, where Discovery Cove will reschedule or refund any vacation package booked online or from the call center. We will not apply any cancellation or change fees for this service. For any additional information, call 407-513-4600.
If your vacation plans do change, due to any other unforeseen events, we do accommodate this by allowing our guests with one complimentary date change prior to your visit. Further changes to your itinerary will be provided for a nominal charge of $50 per change. Bookings made within 14 days of the original reservation date will be booked at the original rate. Bookings made outside of that time will be subject to change based on seasonal rates for the new date chosen.
Please note: If you decide to cancel or rebook your Discovery Cove reservation within 30 days of your visit there is no refund. If the cancellation notice is provided more than 30 days from your originally scheduled arrival, you will receive a full 100% refund. If you have to change or cancel your reservation, please contact the Discovery Cove reservations center at 407-513-4600.
