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, Tampa, or a guest’s hometown, within 7 days of the scheduled visit, 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.
