The good news is Florida residents can save $70 per ticket for Discovery Cove, the Orlando theme park that lets you swim with dolphins, snorkel among thousands of tropical fish and rays and encounter playful marmoset monkeys and Asian otters. But the ticket still costs a hefty $219 for an all-inclusive Dolphin Swim Day Resort, which includes two meals, snacks, drinks, swim gear and more. For a Day Resort package for $149, you get a full day stay of benefits without the dolphin swim experience. The special offer is available through Dec. 31. But there's more good news: Floridians also receive unlimited admission to SeaWorld and Aquatica, SeaWorld's water park with these Discovery Cove tickets through Jan. 31. You can also upgrade for $49 to experience SeaVenture, an underwater walking tour where visitors wear dive helmets for up-close encounters with sharks, one-on-one touches with unique animals and schools of fish and rays. Book online at DiscoveryCove.com or call (877) 434-7268.
