One of the most common topics that our DC Facebook Fans ask questions about is the photo packages. And that makes sense to us – these photos are the special memories of your day that will last you a lifetime.
Here are some tips we’ve compiled that were answers to frequently asked questions from our Fans. We hope these are a helpful resource for you as you plan your “Perfect Day”:
Try to pick up your photos early in the day in order to be amongst the first to have them. This will help you avoid the time around park close, when most families are going to purchase photos. Between 10a.m. and 4p.m. is ideal time to do so.
Every household visiting Discovery Cove gets a complimentary souvenir photo (This is the group photo taken as you walk down the nature trail and into the park). You get one photo per household, so make sure you let your photographer know how many “households” make up your group, so the correct number can be printed for you in advance.
When picking up your photos, let your sales associate know if you had photos taken in areas other than your dolphin swim, such as Explorer’s Aviary.

Be sure to ask about this after your dolphin interaction – this way, we can ensure that your photos are taken in the other areas of the park in order to make the most complete package for you. The price for this package is $219 plus tax, which saves $176 from individual pricing. Of course, if your budget doesn’t allow for this, there are several other wonderful packages to choose from in every price range.
It is your best bet to go with your photographer to view your photos immediately after your dolphin swim. At this time, you will be reviewing all images taken and ordering your package so it is produced for pick up by the time you are ready to leave the park.
This will save you precious time later in the day so you can take an extra lap around the lazy river or soak up the late afternoon sun on the beach.
