Many thanks to Sea World Orlando for sponsoring some of our tickets during our Florida vacation! All opinions are my own.
The week after Thanksgiving is a great time to visit if you want to beat the crowds. And with five kids to keep track of and wait in lines with, the less crowd the better. We were greeted by the Sea World polar bear!
We arrived when the park opened and headed to eat breakfast first thing. We purchased the All-Day-Dining Deal, and I highly recommend it. We purchased our passes online in advance for $29.99 per adult and $14.99 per child. With the pass each person may take an entree, side, and drink every time they go through the line, all day at participating restaurants. There is also an advantage to buying the passes on days that are less crowded as well. It’s much faster to go through the line multiple times! The food at the park is delicious!
Blue Horizons is Sea World’s best kept secret. This show received the best crowd applause and excitement of any show we got to see. I mean the crowd just went wild over the show. Of course everyone loves dolphins, but there is also a great story line and beautiful acrobatics throughout the show. It was fantastic! Unfortunately, the Clyde and Seamore show was closed for the winter. That is one of my favorites. I guess we’ll just have to go back to Sea World in the spring!
I love rides that you get to experience something. The Polar Express Experience is a favorite of mine. They take you into the story of The Polar Express via a simulator so it feels like you are on the train. I love this ride!
After lunch we did as many rides as we could. Even with no lines to speak of there was so much we didn’t get to see, ride and do at the end of the day. We wished we would have had another day to spend at Sea World. Oh…and I discovered the Secret of Atlantis. We have declared this the best log style ride we’ve ever been on.
We had a blast at Sea World Orlando. I can’t wait to go back!
