Discovery Cove in January too cold?

My family and I are going to Disneyworld mid Jan. Children ages 6,9 and 2. We are thinking of Discovery Cove for a day. I've read the posts. Do you think it will be too
cold for us to enjoy in January? Pleas advise. Thanks.

We went mid-Dec last year - and it was quite cold - OUTSIDE the water. Don't forget the water temp is for tropical fish, and you're in a wetsuit. They also allow one day-change free of charge. If you make the reservation for early in the week, and then find out the end of your vacation will be much warmer, try to change the reservation if space allows! I'm assuming the 2-yr old isn't doing the dolhpin thing....wouldn't recommend it for one so young! But the older kids would go nuts!

check out lots of info & message board for Discovery Cove. December has been really warm... maybe it will carry thru to January.

So far it has been very warm this year, no lower than 75 in the daytime, so hopefully the weather will hold for you.

My wife and I visited Discovery Cove last year on January 7. The air temp was about 65 as I recall, but as Beth2 stated above, the water temp is much warmer (and you can wear a wetsuit). We were fine, and the park was not crowded at all (although I believe it is designed not to ever be too crowded).

Have a great time!

Check the age restrictions at or call their 800 number. Our family went two years ago and did NOT do dolphin swim but had terrific time, we spent hours in stingray cove and aviary feeding birds. Your two year old will not be allowed to do dolphin swim, but the non-dolphin swim ticket is less. I am not sure if 6 or 7 is minimum age for dolphin swim. Call them, check out info on website, and see what is available.
