I need to make this decision soon, and simply cannot decide! We will be going to SeaWorld for the first time and I can either get the ticket with one day free($345 from undercover tourist) or get the one day ticket with the all day dining($401). Can anyone help me out here? Also, time is not a problem since this is a two week trip.

When are you traveling? Busy time of year? What are the park hours when you're traveling?

Who is in your group? Mixed ages so your group needs time for the 3 big rides plus the kiddie rides? Did you look at Sea World's website -- are you interested in going to all the shows? Are you going to do all the animal feedings?

Number of days to spend in a park is very subjective -- some people will say one day is enough for them while others would like 2 days.

If you get the all day dining plan, will you go to Sea World and eat their breakfast (it's included)?

Doesn't Sea World give 2nd free or return for the rest of the year all the time -- why are you paying extra for this?

According to another thread the 2nd day free is not included with the free all day dining ticket.

DW and I went just bought the 2nd day free from UT. If you go a 2nd day, it averages out close to $35 per day. We plan on purchasing the All Day Dining separately. We plan on going 2 days though. If you're only going one, then it's better to buy the ticket will All Day Dining. Last time we were there in 2010, one meal alone I think cost us close to $20 each. That's not including what we spent on water and sodas throughout the day.

Adult single day bought on line is $71.99 and you can go the 2nd day free.
Child single day is $63.99 and you can get the 2nd day free. At the gate the tickets are basically $10 more.

All-day-dining would add $29.99 per adult and kids 14.99.

The OP will have to decide which way is the less expensive for ages and the number in their group.

Thanks everyone..I went ahead and ordered my tickets from UT since the mousesavers link brings the total down to 69.95 for adults and 60.95 for children. This also gives us our 2nd day free.

If you go in future and hit SW and Aquatica, consider the Super Grover pass when on sale (Nov-March annually) You get it for 25% off during sale period, usually about $160 for adults. Free preferred parking, reserved seats at SW shows, discounts on dining, animal feedinds, Discovery Cove, etc. Pays itself off pretty quick. This pass runs from purchase time until Dec 31. So, our first buy was Thanksgiving 2010. Used Dec 2010 for the winter trip, Summer 2011 for summer trip, and Dec 2011 for the winter trip. We live in PA so used for a few days at Sesame Place to boot. Easily best theme park ticket buy we've ever done. We love Aquatica and SW, though. We luv Diz, but SW might be our 2nd fav park in Orlando after Magic King. And we'd take Aquatica over any Diz water park any day.... love Aquatica.

One thing to keep in mind, you have to make sure and exchange your ticket at Guest Services for the 2nd Free Day. We learned this last time we went. We went back in the afternoon and did that. Lines weren't as long then as when we were leaving.

Just a reminder though.....the Super Grover Pass is not valid for people who live in Florida, Georgia, Virgina, California, South or North Carolina, and Texas.
