It might be worth a phone call or email to inquire. We were able to purchase Aquatica Weekday Passes, which were advertised on the "Florida Residents" page of the website, for our August trip (and not only are we not residents of Florida, we aren't residents of any US state).

When I called to inquire if they had something similar for non-US residents, they told me to go ahead and purchase the ones on the Florida resident page and we would be fine (and we were). Apparently, they are listed on the Florida resident page because that's the demographic they are pitching those particular admissions to. That said, everyone was welcome to purchase them if they wanted.

I find SeaWorld Parks & Recreation's call center is excellent. The reps are almost always very friendly and helpful! They are also very responsive to emails, so if that is easier for you than calling from the UK, its a good option.

Go to www.discoverycove.com. Right at the top of the page (next to the "Find us on Facebook" logo) there is a spot that says "Email Sign Up". That's what you want to click on .
OK thanks. I went to do that and I've already signed up! They don't send out many emails do they. LOL.

So, or people using this Amex deal, do you have to pay for it with your Amex? I hate waiting for mine to arrive. I'm impatient.

I just booked my package this morning with my Amex. I am very excited as I wasn't going to do Discovery Cove because it was so expensive, but this deal is too good to pass up. We were planning to do Sea World and maybe Aquatica anyway, so it really isn't that much more. Now I am trying to decide if we should spend our last night at a partner hotel. Unfortunately, the Portofino Bay is not available for the last night of our trip (which was just extended by a day due to change in airline schedule - yay!). Can't wait for our trip.

You will get SW and Aquatica 14-day passes with your DC tickets. Wasn't sure if you knew that part!

I did. We've decided to cut our stay at Universal to 4 night and do 2 at the Springhill Suites to take advantage of the express passes. I am looking forward to a great trip!

For those without Amex wanting to get in on the deal, AMEX now offers a free prepaid card. There are no fees to obtain the card, and if you reload with your bank account, its free.

When I was looking at the AMEX cards it seemed that most of them had no annual fee. I won't have a card that does have an annual fee. Hoping mine arrives this week so I can buy my DC tixs!

We have the Amex Blue cash back card. We put everything on it, especially groceries and gas. We get cash back at the end of the year. No fees but I am not sure what the interest rate is as we pay it off each month. Best card I've ever had.

I ordered one of these a few days ago, and just got an email that it's being delivered. Once I get it, I am going to load it up with just enough to pay for six of us, and keep it long enough to present it at the gate. After that, it's going in the shredder!
