ORLANDO (Dec. 8, 2020) – Discovery Cove® has launched the “Flamingo Mingle”, an ALL-NEW exclusive animal experience with its resident group of flamingos (known as a flamboyance) as an additional private opportunity for guests to enjoy during their visit at the all-inclusive day park. The Flamingo Mingle will begin each day at 8 a.m. during normal park hours and give a group of no more than eight guests the unique experience to feed and learn about the flamingos, with strict physical distancing measures in place. Set amid a tropical oasis in the heart of Central Florida, Discovery Cove provides guests with the opportunity to relax in a beautiful, safe, outdoor environment with enhanced health and safety measures and limited capacity for an even more exclusive resort experience.
This exclusive, intimate encounter begins and ends with a private stroll that will make guests feel like they are part of the flamboyance, feeding the beautiful birds one-on-one from the sandy shore before wading together in the cool reef waters. A professional photographer will capture the experience as animal care specialists answer questions and share fun facts about these amazing creatures and how they are cared for. As space is limited, guests are encouraged to reserve their experience immediately at DiscoveryCove.com. Guests who already have their Discovery Cove reservations confirmed can call 407-513-4600 to add the new experience to their itinerary. The Flamingo Mingle starts at just $59* per person and may be added onto both Signature Dolphin Swim and select Day Resort packages. All participants must be at least six years of age (ages 6 to 12 must be accompanied by an adult).
After time well spent with the flamingos, guests can enjoy the stunning all-inclusive day resort where they can experience nature and animals like never before; swim with dolphins in the Dolphin Lagoon, snorkel among thousands of tropical fish and rays in The Grand Reef, hand-feed exotic birds in the Explorer’s Aviary, float along the soothing currents of WindAway River, bask on a sandy beach, and more. Visitors to Discovery Cove can also enjoy a freshly prepared breakfast, lunch, and all-you-can-eat snacks throughout the day, plus unlimited gourmet coffee, ice-cold beverages, and beer and wine (for guests 21+). Parking, lockers, wetsuits, and swim gear are also included.
During these unprecedented times, Discovery Cove understands that visitors are looking for flexibility in their vacation planning, which is why the resort offers the Book with CONFIDENCE policy, which allows guests to:
· Rebook without penalties or fees, shifting reservations up to 48 hours prior to the reservation date, to any future date through all of 2021; and includes
