Discovery Cove in Orlando recently welcomed 192 children with illnesses and disabilities for a day in paradise to learn more about dolphins.
The visit was organized by Dreamflight, a United Kingdom-based company that organizes an annual 10-day trip to Orlando, offering great memories for children and the team of volunteer doctors, nurses, physiotherapists and others who escort them. This is the 18th consecutive year that Discovery Cove has hosted the group.
“Our entire team looks forward to this visit every year, working alongside the Dreamflight crew to create a truly unforgettable experience for these children,” said Kyle Miller, park president. “I comment Dreamflight for their continued efforts and for everyone on our team who give it their all to create memories these children will cherish forever.”
A team of over 40 Discovery Cove and SeaWorld Ambassadors worked hand-in-hand for days in advance to prepare the park for this visit. Their efforts included leveling sand and installing plans on the beaches for easier wheelchair access, and amenities to support the children during their visits with the dolphins.
“Dreamflight could not operate without the support of great partners like Discovery Cove, and the hundreds of volunteers from the United Kingdom and the great state of Florida, who work tirelessly to give these deserving children a trip of a lifetime,” said Sally Wrampling, director of Dreamflight.
