All Day Dining Deal at SW

I was just looking at the cost. It has gone up about $10. Is that only cause of the holidays or is the new price? We are looking at going during the holidays while we are camping at the Fort. We cant afford the Disney tickets they are too much.

Also another question. The kids have the fun cards that expire on Dec. 31st. Will we still be able to use them to get in on new yrs eve? We might drive up for the day and spend it at SW.

SeaWorld's all day dining was $29.99 pp when we were there in January. Its now $32.99 pp (adult).

It is very much in line, price-wise, with Disney's Quick Service Dining Plan ($34.99 pp) and offers you unlimited food throughout the day (rather than the restriction to two meals and one snack).

I know its a better deal compared to what Disney has I have always liked it better for that reason. We had APs in 2010. I thought the cost was 24.99. We went in May with the GS troop but their leader paid for their meal plan. I still think it is a great deal I was just curious if they raised the cost for the holidays or if this was a permanent thing. Disneys prices is the reason we arent going to get to do tickets for their parks but will only be camping there.

$24.99?? Holy crap, that was an awesome price. I can see why they needed to raise it.....with the way my DH and DS eat, they would lose money pretty quickly .

I don't think they raise the cost for the holidays. We booked our Christmas getaway in July, and have been stalking the SeaWorld website since then (watching for Dine with Shamu, Santa's Fireside Feast, and other info) and it has listed the All Day Dining cost at $32.99 the entire time.

$24.99 less our discount was what we paid the first time we used the meal plan. The price was up this summer when we went there to check out Turtle Trek, so I think that's the price not just up for the holidays.

It really is a great deal if you are there for the whole day.

Ok thanks. I understand they need to raise the cost. Don't blame them really with how much my seven kids eat.

I cannot seem to be able to add this to my cart on the website. If for some reason I don't get back around to trying this again before our trip, is the All Day Dining offered at the gate for the same price?

Yes, you can buy the all day dining at the front of the park for sure. After you get through the gates look left and you'll see a series of counters. Some are to sign up for training, but some are for the meal plan too. Be sure to read the signs.

I haven't bought it recently, but you use to be able to buy it at the register of a participating restaurant too. I know you can do this at Universal because we did that this summer, but I'm not sure if Sea World still does it at the register. If you are a passholder, be sure to show your pass for a discount! There is no discount at Universal for passholders we were told. I hope Sea World still gives a discount.

This past may when we were there we paid for it at the restaurant. You can pay at the guest service counters but they actually encourage you to pay at the restaurant since they have the bands. Guest service only gives a card that has to be traded in at the participating restaurant. If we get there when they open we like to go to Seafire and get a nice breakfast and the bands at that time.
