  • We have gone on the weekend and during a weekday. If you are able to, it’s way better to go during the middle of the week. Less crowded and you’re able to actually see everything without being pushed around. The staff is super friendly and it’s clean and well taken care of. You are able to take in your own snacks and drinks, just not alcoholic drinks. That’s a big plus! The food is really good though, especially Calypso Bay Smokehouse!
  • If you can, try experiencing SeaWorld at different times of the day. Last night we went for their glow "time" and it was fun, different and a lot less crowded. The electric circle and the dolphin shows are some of our favorite as well as the entrance "hands-on" interaction aquariums and the kids rides in the bay of play. Pack snacks and a change of clothes because chances are your kids will get both hungry and wet.
