Sea World in Orlando

One of the best days of our vacation in Orlando/Kissimmee was our day at Sea World. The kids got very wet in a playship, as well as beside a rock waiting for the waves to wash over them.

Sea World in Orlando

Feeding the dolphins at Key West Dolphin Cove. You have to buy the fish when they are selling, since feeding times vary during the day. It's worth the $4.00 for three fish to actually pet a dolphin under the chin. Listen to the instructions on how to feed the dolphins first to get the most out of the experience. For roller coaster enthusiasts, Kraken is 15 stories high and is floorless, turning you upside down no less than seven times. ${QuickSuggestions} You can purchase your tickets online 7 days before and save 10%; or don't forget your CAA/AAA card to receive discounts.

As soon as you arrive, look at the schedule of shows. Map out your day around the shows. Shamu Adventure at Shamu Stadium is a must, as is the Key West Dolphin Fest. My three children under 10 also enjoyed Pets Ahoy (inside cool building) consisting of lots of animals rescued from the animal league/SPCA in Canada.

Sea World will often give you a second day free within 7 days of your first day (depending on volume), so try and visit early in your week so you have the option to return. You could go back for a second day just to hit a few highlights or perhaps a show you missed.${BestWay} Most resorts have a shuttle service to the park. Parking was easy for cars, with just a short walk if you arrive first thing in the morning. Lots of walking around the park, but because there are so many shows to see throughout the day, it was quite relaxing.
