I know I’m supposed to be better than supporting Seaworld. What can I say? I took a big gulp of the kool-aid and I trust that they do not mistreat the animals. Plus my kid thinks she’s a mermaid/Octonaut.
Let me start by saying Florida was a lot colder than I expected this year. Fortunately, I am an overpacker when it comes to Minime. She was layered up and warm for the day. Sadly though the cool temperatures kept us from sitting in soak zone of most of the shows. Minime wore me down at the end of the day and we sat front and center for the orca show.
Last year we spent more time walking around but this year we took in most of the shows. I won’t ruin the shows for you because I know you are planning to visit yourself but here’s a peek at what to expect.
Sea Lion High
When you visit I highly suggest getting the all day dining pass. I get one for myself and not for Minime. I know you’re not supposed to share but that doesn’t really count with a toddler lol. It cost around $35 but you can eat at most of the restaurants all day long and get a full meal. Entree, side and drink. I routinely saw people in front of me paying more than $35 for one meal.
They also have charging stations around the park which I thought was awesome (even though I forgot my wire (the gift store sells them).
I do suggest however packing your own towel in case your children like to sit in soak zones and if you can your own rain poncho. I packed a hand me down one Minime had from her godbrother which is still big on her but worked perfectly during the orca show. We didn’t have to change clothes. Of course Seaworld sells them if you want to purchase them there as souvenirs but I’m all about being frugal.
