As always, plan ahead!  We suggest going to the Secret Garden and Dolphin Habitat at the opening time.  Crowds are typically smaller when they first open.  It’s outside so check the weather and wear appropriate clothes!

The dolphin show is at 11 am so plan your trip around that time, because you don’t want to miss it.  If you can get a spot by the dolphin pool you’ll have the best time and may even get a little wet!

Strollers are allowed and come in handy for littles or for infants I would suggest babywearing.

Currently, masks are not required except for when you are inside the Mirage or at the gift shop.

We definitely recommend visiting the Secret Garden & Dolphin Habitat if you haven’t yet.  It is a fun experience for the entire family!  All of my kid’s ages 3-7 had a great time and want to go back again on our next visit.

We parked at the Mirage for free and had no trouble navigating our way to it.  We stayed for approximately 2 hours so it is great for a half-day activity.
