My Day At Sea World

My family and I visited Sea World Orlando last week. This was our first visit and we absolutely loved Sea World!  This year is their 50th anniversary and tickets are available for sale buy one ticket get one free! We spent a whole day at Sea World but I would recommend planning to spend two days if possible to allow time to watch all of the wonderful shows and be able to ride all of the rides. There are quite a few 'must do attractions' at Sea World. 

I highly recommend riding Journey To Atlantis in the morning before the lines get too long. This is an awesome water ride but you will get wet. Antarctica: Empire of the Penguin and penguin interaction area is one of my favorite attractions at Sea World. I love penguins and this is a fun family ride for the whole family. Guests must be 42" to ride. Check out Sea World's live penguin cam to see the adorable penguins. If you enjoy roller coasters be sure to ride Kraken and Manta. Guests must be 54" or taller to ride Kraken and Manta. 

My toddlers loved the Shamu's Happy Harbor area which was designed just for small children. There is a huge net climb which is perfect for small children to let out some energy. The Shamu Express is a roller coaster built for small children. This was a big hit with my toddlers. There is even an adorable Sea Carousel and all of the animals are sea creatures. 

The Jazzy Jellies are similar to a tea cup type ride in which guests can choose how fast to spin from 30 feet in the air

Dolphin Cove is an amazing feeding and interaction area for anyone wanting to get up close with the beautiful dolphins. The dolphin viewing area is free or you can pay $7 per person and enter the dolphin feeding area. Guests will be given a small container with 3-4 fish to feed to the dolphins. This was such a memorable experience for my 7 year old.  

My daughter loved being able to interact and feed the dolphins

There is an underwater dolphin viewing area located directly below Dolphin Cove

Souvenir Pennies make great keepsakes for kids of all ages. There are machines located throughout the park and there are several different designs available.

The shows at Sea World are truly amazing!!

Blue Horizons dolphin show is hands down my favorite show at Sea World! It is a MUST :)

Blue Horizons is a show the whole family will love!


  1. It has been years since we have gone to Sea World. It looks like we will have to make another trip to see Sea World again sometime.

  2. We haven't been to Sea World since 2005. I'd love to go back sometime. Thanks for sharing your experience.

  3. Heidi--you should visit again next time you're in Orlando. It was a blast!

  4. Looks like a super fun time for the kiddos!
