|“We just wanted to say thank you…thank you… for everything that you have done for Summer and our family. We had an absolutely incredible time on Summer’s Make-A-Wish trip. Discovery Cove was just amazing and the swim with the dolphins was fantastic. We all got to swim with the dolphins, feed them and give them signals to do tricks too. Summer’s favorite part was kissing the dolphin! Dolphins are amazing animals and Discovery Cove has many more amazing animals too. There was a coral reef where you could snorkel and see all kinds of tropical fish…there was a sting ray lagoon where you could swim with the sting rays…and there was a fabulous bird aviary where we could feed all kinds of tropical birds and a beautiful peacock! And my favorite part…the 85 degree lazy river pool. I could have stayed floating on the lazy river for days! It was an excitement-filled yet very relaxing day at Discovery Cove as there were no crowds…we just enjoyed the day at our own pace. It was just wonderful!
We also thoroughly enjoyed Islands of Adventure, Universal Studios, Aquatica and Seaworld. The golden ticket that Summer received at Islands of Adventure and Universal Studios was essentially a fast pass for every ride! And that pass was awesome since the lines were very long being a school vacation week. We felt very privileged that we did not have to wait to get on the rides and we were able to see everything the kids wanted to in the parks! The children loved the Roa Rapids in Aquatica too. In fact, Summer and Skylar giggled and laughed the whole way around the Roa Rapids loop the first time. And Chase would pretend to be taken away by the rapids and the girls would try to catch up and save him, laughing all the way! It was heartwarming to hear such laughter and see such smiles on their faces.
SeaWorld’s shows like Believe, the Sea Lion and Otter Pirate Show and the Whale and Dolphin Show are second to none. The animals, the stunts, the music and choreography hits you in the heart and it’s moving. You really say “Wow”. During the Whale and Dolphin show, Skylar whispered to me “Mom, this is awesome”! The weather was awesome too - sunny and in the 80s every day. And the Rosen Centre Hotel where we stayed was gorgeous. We had such a great time! Thank you for bringing us so many “positives” after a long year of treatments. You’ve made us feel incredibly special, uplifted our spirits and gave us memories for a lifetime. Thank you so much!”
