Official SeaWorld Partners near Discovery Cove

There is really only one Official Partner that makes our list, although there are plenty of others to choose from. This partner has plenty of Water fun action right at the resort and is not just equipped with a swimming pool. The Renaissance Orlando Resort is the closest property to Discovery Cove and is actually within walking distance, if this is how you would like to travel. The Renaissance makes our list because it has a couple of really nice and lengthy Water Slides as well as a Kids Splash Zone.
