Sometimes shows fill up 1/2 hour before show time so you can't get seats if the park is really busy-even though the shows are in huge stadiums. Are you planning on taking advantage of the 2nd day free that you get with your 1 day pass?
They said they were thinking about the Dining Deal for a September trip. During September, after Labor Day, the park hours reduce to closing at 6pm according to the website.

I went to Seaworld for the first time yesterday and decided to do the All Day Dining so here is a mini review.

I decided to make this an eating day to see what there was to enjoy - and I loved it. It was well worth it but I wouldn't do it every visit. I have an AP and plan on visiting occasionally. Lunchtime was a little nuts though as far as crowds go - and the business went well into 4:00pm - then it started raining and I think the crowds cleared out a bit.

I arrived at the park 8:30am - the turnstiles were open shortly thereafter. I bought my all day dining voucher at the reservations counter at the front but I think for morning arrival is it easiest to purchase at Voyagers if you are going to have breakfast. There was a line at reservations but when I got to Voyagers there were hardly any people there.

I have an AP - so the voucher was around $32 with tax and my discount.

I thought the breakfast at Voyagers was good. I had scrambled eggs, biscuit and gravy, watermelon and orange juice first time through. Second time through the line I got a hot tea which was huge.

There were very few people having breakfast at 9:00am - very peaceful.

Around 12:30pm I went to Seafire Inn - had a chefs salad, fruit cup and bottled water - all was really good. The carved meats are really nice - turkey and roast beef both on the chef's salad. It was busy but I didn't wait too long - there was seating available in the Cove (air conditioned) where they have the luau.

After this I noticed the crowds at the restaurants were really thick especially at Voyagers.

At around 1:30pm I went to Voyagers for milk and cookies - it was extremely busy - the team member directing traffic told me to go ahead and go in and get my milk and cookies - not to wait in the queue - I was so grateful for this - I wouldn't have waited for it - there was no place to sit and enjoy them however - I went outside.


Around 4:00pm I went to Spicemill as I wanted more water and some water melon - it was crazy busy - no seating at all - I left.

I went back to Seafire Inn and it was doable - so I got the bottled water and watermelon with a short wait.

Around 6:30pm I went to Voyagers for dinner - had the combo platter - chicken and spare ribs, french fries and roll, milk and chocolate cake - it was really good and the wait was nothing like lunch time crowds.

I think I saved about $30 using the All Day Dining Deal - I did have 3 meals and two snacks - my last meal was about $20 alone.

How much are the meals at Sea World if you pay out of pocket? I have found menus online but none of them have prices. I am wondering how much a kids cheeseburger or chicken nugget meal and an adult cheeseburger meal is. We are going in Sep when the park closes at 5:00 so I am trying to figure out if the all day dining would be good for us. Thanks!

Kids meals were about $6, adult entrees were about $8-9, drinks are $3, sides/desserts are about $3.

I went back to Seaworld yesterday and did the All Day Dining Deal once again - so the prices are fresh in my mind.

Typical adult meal - steak burger $9.98, drink $2.69 or bottled water $2.79, side item or deserts usually about $3.59 - some kids meals were $7.99 I remember but that might have been a special Shamu meal with plate and souvenir cup - I don't have children so wasn't purchasing kids meals - but I might estimate at that price. I was averaging about $16 a meal getting a side and a drink for adults and more with the BBQ.
