ORLANDO, Fla – SeaWorld’s Discovery Cove is introducing an all-new experience, the “Flamingo Mingle.”

The private experience will begin at 8 a.m. each day and allow no more than eight guests the opportunity to feed and learn about the flamingos amid the tropical oasis theme park. In a news release, officials said the encounter will begin and end with a private stroll that will make guests feel like they are part of the group of flamingos, also known as a flamboyance.

Guests will then get the opportunity to feed the birds one-on-one from the theme park’s sandy cool reef waters and have their photos taken by a professional photographer. Animal care specialists will be on hand to answer any questions guests might have about the birds.
