It’s no secret why every year millions of people flock to Orlando. We’re a city brimming with thrilling attractions from hulking coasters to immersive experiences that can only be had at one of our many theme parks. But as the Florida heat reaches a boiling point, long lines and hours on your feet might not seem appealing. So where do you go when you want to enjoy great rides and still have plenty of opportunity to get out of the sun and rest your feet without feeling like you’ve wasted time?
As frequent theme park goers, we know that every park is unique and has its own draws that keep visitors coming back year after year. That’s why SeaWorld Orlando is possibly the best theme park to take it easy in. Here are a few reasons why we LOVE SeaWorld Orlando!
This park is all about marine animal conservation and education. That’s why their hands-on approach is one of our favorite things about this park. Guests can interact with all sorts of amazing animals from dolphins to stingrays. If you stop by during scheduled feeding times, you can help feed the animals. Stingray feeding is our favorite—we just love it when they glide over our hand and suck up the food! Other animals that you can touch or feed are dolphins, California sea lions, and harbor seals.
Clyde and Seamore
As far as shows go, this one is our favorite. Take a break and get out of the sun at the Sea Lion and Otter Stadium and enjoy the fun as Clyde and Seamore do their very best to earn their high school diplomas. With witty walruses, outrageous otters, and studious sea lions in attendance it’s no wonder why this stadium is always roaring with laughter.
There are a lot of fun shows to enjoy during your visit, so make sure to plan to see them all.
Something for Everyone
One thing we absolutely love is that this park remains truly family friendly. There’s something for everyone: thrill rides like Manta and Kraken Unleashed, family rides like the newly added Infinity falls or Antarctica: Empire of the Penguin, play places and small rides for the little ones, and of course animals!
Often a surprise for visitors is that SeaWorld Orlando always has something fun going on for the season. This includes great dining and concert series and holiday attractions like their Christmas celebration or their amazing New Year’s Eve fireworks display.
We can’t say enough that this park is the perfect combination of easy-going and exciting. All the show times are conveniently timed and just long enough to feel rested before you head back out to your next thrill ride. Line waits just feel shorter. Depending on when you go, wait times can be as low as 5 minutes for roller coasters! There’s also a great balance between indoor and outdoor attractions making it a fine choice even on days when we’re expecting a little bit of rain.
Last but not least, SeaWorld is easy to get to from any of our hotels either by using our free shuttle or by catching a ride on the IRide Trolley. Enjoy the convenience of staying close to all of the amazing parks in the area, including SeaWorld Orlando when you book your stay with us.
