Today is a great day! The hotel has been paid off, tickets to universal, discovery cove (comes with visits to Busch gardens and seaworld) and la nouba have all been purchessed! Now there's nothing left to do but pack and let the excitement build!

Wheeeee! πŸ‘ - Butterlina  1525.4 #96 9:29AM
Yay!!! Love the pic btw*+.*+.*+. - CinderellaPrincess85  194.6 #42 9:34AM
Ooooo you're going to love Discovery Cove. Did you get a package with the dolphin swim as well? And don't forget the free alcohol. Get there before the resort opens. Depending on when your swim is (if you got it), do the Grand Reef first thing when the area opens because later on it'll be loud and busy. Oh it's exciting even thinking about it. The wife and I will be going for our third time in Sept. - IndyandMarion  1278.9 #1 9:45AM
Yes we sure did! I'm not missing an opportunity to swim with dolphins, no way! - allieenicolee  16.1 #179 9:51AM
Very nice. I'll say now that they'll be taking photos and video of you that you can purchase. Both are very well done. Marion and I got the really big set they have available but that's mainly because we got engaged there so they took photos and video of that moment too. If you want any other tips about how to spend the day then just message me. - IndyandMarion  1278.9 #1 10:24AM
Sounds amazing. So excited for you - mmddgp  590.3 #10 9:59AM
We splurged on Discovery Cove for this trip! (Staying off site to afford it) Indy, can you share some tips for that park? - amajam  20.8 #159 12:11PM
Sure. Get there about 30 minutes prior to the resort opening (Yes, this a resort, not a theme park). You'll need to be checked in, get your IDs (you'll use these to get alcohol if you opt for it, remember, all food and drinks are FREE, including alcohol). They'll stop you for a photo op down the pathway a bit, do it, it's free. You'll go into the "main area" where employees will inform you of all the areas, send you in the direction of your "base" for the dolphin encounter. While you're in this "info area" go ahead and get breakfast since you're there early. Trust me, an hour after the resort opens, it is PACKED. Again, remember, FREE ALL YOU CAN EAT FOOD. But please watch out for the birds, they have no honor code and will dive bomb your plate (i've had it happen) so be careful. - IndyandMarion  1278.9 #1 1:21PM
You'll want to grab your wetsuit (you have the option for a vest, but the wetsuit is better), and while it is tricky getting it on, its best to not wear an undershirt (underwear for the waist is up to you, personally I don't, too much of a hassle). It zips in the back so you might need someone to help you finish that part. - IndyandMarion  1278.9 #1 1:23PM
Now hopefully you're a part of the second dolphin interaction. Because once the Grand Reef has opened, you'll want to do that FIRST. Now is a time to test out your snorkel and mask here in the shallows. Not many people will be there first thing and man you're in for a real treat. The wetsuit will do all the floating for you so just relax once you're to the canyon a little ways out into the water. Remember, the sting(less) rays and other fish have the right of way. The big rays will most likely pass right over your feet, they don't care, and they're not going to try to eat you. Hit that canyon edge and float along. You'll head toward the back of the area (few bridges here) and slowly make your way around this area. ARE THOSE SHARKS? Yes, but they won't harm you. And they're behind glass that you can sorta stand on if you're balance is good and see them from below the surface. The path will start to shallow out as you continue on and return to the main area of the reef. Relax, the rays really like this area, and so do the other fish so there's a good chance you see a lot of them here in the morning. - IndyandMarion  1278.9 #1 1:29PM
MONKEYS AND ASIAN OTTERS? Why yes...Yes there are. If you hit the water in this area, you'll want to go around the whole area with the monkeys. It's a small island but hey, they like to hide. Now the otters are very interesting. You'll want to have your mask with you because if they're playing, there's a chance they'll take this "fight" underwater. And you can see them with your mask! Eventually you'll head through the rest of the oasis. If by now you haven't gotten a drink or a small snack (The pretzels are to die for), do so at the little shack right by you. Eat the food at the shack. BUT SAVE THE DRINK AND TURN AROUND. See that shallow water area...Yeah, that's totally a chair in the water. Yes, you're totally at a water bar....Enjoy. - IndyandMarion  1278.9 #1 1:33PM
OK, so. You've had your little snacks, little sips from your drinky drinks. There's a restroom right by the shack. Go ahead, I'll wait for you ....... Now, hit the water where you see that cave. And grab a water noodle if you can. The cave isn't much to look at but it'll give you time to get used to the water (its bath water, I'll be honest) and the somewhat deep areas at times). That waterfall looks a bit rough right? Well, hang on to your noodle. You're going through it. Like it or not. .....Now you understand why the waterfall is so rough? Good. Float through here. Take your time. There's another waterfall for the same reason. I'll be on the other side having a drink. OH AND LOOK OUT FOR THE DEER! She won't do anything. She's just cute and I want to take her home. - IndyandMarion  1278.9 #1 1:36PM
If you liked what you saw between the waterfalls, you're gonna love this part. If you walk past those bathrooms from earlier, you'll see a set of doors, go through them and enjoy walking through whats' between the waterfalls. There should be some stations throughout the area. And don't worry, they won't fight over what you take from the station. Well, not often anyway. - IndyandMarion  1278.9 #1 1:38PM
I my goodness. These comments just got me SO EXCITED! I'm a sucker for animals. Especially otters. And dolphins. So the photos are worth the price then? I mean I doubt I will be getting engaged haha but I would still like to capture these memories! Just not for the price of my first born child! - allieenicolee  16.1 #179 9:36PM
After the session they'll take you over and let you see the photos/ video and you can decide then. I forgot the prices but I also got a discount because of my working for SeaWorld at the time. - IndyandMarion  1278.9 #1 5:43AM
That's awesome! Sounds like you will have an amazing time! - elephanette  19.6 #6781 12:19PM
Yay It's a good feeling when everything's paid for - 5disneylovers  973.3 #5 12:23PM
Very cute pic - bearlove  113.4 #3245 12:30PM
Cute photo! YAY on all the plans. You will LOVE, LOVE, LOVE La Nouba! I can't wait to see it again (waiting for the girls to get a bit older)! - DizneyGirl  720.6 #7 12:35PM
How old are your girls? My sister has seen it and absolutely loved it and she was I think 8 at the time. I'm very excited we're going on our first day in Orlando! I've never seen any cirque shows I really wanted this to be my first one. It looks incredible! - allieenicolee  16.1 #179 9:44PM
That's great , sounds like an awesome time, I know you had wanted to take part in MWer of the day but I couldn't find any contact info , if you still want go to my profile to get a hold of me , it will start back up in about a week or so. Cute pic btw:) - tracsant  1151.1 #2 1:44PM
Wow your doing it all aren't you! :) I wish I was going with you. Hope you have the time of your life! :) - disneyworldsbiggestfan  62.6 #88 3:05PM
Thank you everyone!! Yes it's a fantastic feeling to have everything paid for now I have nothing to worry about expect how I'm going to fit 2 weeks in to one suit case for 2 people (yikes!!) yes I am cramming a lot of activities in to this vacation but I've never been to Florida and this is my last vacation for who knows how long! Apparently it's time to be a grown up and buy a house... Houses don't come cheap!! So I needed to make the most of this one! - allieenicolee  16.1 #179 9:40PM
I remember when ryan said that....then my father gave us DVC...now ryan has no excuse. - CinderellaPrincess85  194.6 #42 5:55AM
Sounds like an amazing trip! Yay! - goofygal  8355.9 #6 6:59AM
