Dine With Shamu Price Drop

Just in case anyone missed the info on some of the other post replies, I thought I would start a new thread for this to be everyone sees it.

Dine With Shamu, regularly $49 per adult, has been reduced to $29. This new rate also includes one free child (ages 3-9) with each paid adult for all reservations made before December 25th:

http://seaworldparks.com/en/seaworld...ine-with-Shamu

I just purchased our reservations for December 27th last week, and was charged the $49 price. A quick call to their customer service center last night yielded me a $63.80 credit (3 adults x $20 + taxes) .

Definitely a great savings for anyone looking to book this dinner event at SeaWorld!

My DD is 9. She hates "kiddie" food. Would rather have steak and salad. Do you know if they will only let her eat from kids choices or can she eat the adult choices too?

Quick questions (probably dumb ones too, lol) ... I went to book this, but the only available time is 5:30. The park closes at 6 that day. How long is the show? Will we be rushed through dinner?

Wondering if I should skip the dinner with Shamu and do Sharks Grill earlier. Any thoughts?

Just in case anyone else is wondering.. I called and they said kids can eat all the same foods as adults. If you get a kid free they don't restrict the foods on the buffet to certain items.

Thanks! This was enough to make me book, because it's not that much worse than feeding 4 at a regular restaurant. I did call and check on times, and even if park closes at 6 the dining event stays "open" until you're done eating.

So can I call in even if my reservation is next Wednesday? I love to get some cash back but worry I'd lose priority seating as I booked extremely early. Any thoughts?

Quite honestly, I have no idea. But it sure would be worth a phone call to find out. If you would lose your priority seating, then you could always leave your reservations "as is". If they can refund you the difference AND keep your original booking in tact, then you bonus . If it were me, I would call to inquire.

I am not sure how they handled my reimbursement...... I know I wasn't refunded for the entire amount and billed for the new amount (leaving me with a remaining credit)....I was just refunded the credit. Not sure if I was bumped back in priority order as a result or not. There was less than a week between my original booking and the release of the price change, though, and my reservation isn't until late December, so I wasn't worried either way. I am sure my priority stayed reasonably unchanged regardless of how they put the price adjustment through.

In your situation, with your reservation being so much sooner, I can see why you would want to know before making any modifications. Please drop back to the thread and let us know what they say.

Ok, so I got the refund and by the looks of it, I get to keep my reservation I originally had. My reservation number and confirmation number stayed the same, only thing that changed was price.

You are welcome! . We don't visit until Christmas week, so come back to the boards after your October visit and let us know how it was. Pictures are always great too! (hint, hint )
