Sea World and Aquatica in One Day?

My Dd (almost 5) and I are headed to Disney at the end of the month. We're spending 4 days in the parks (M-Th). We don't head home until Saturday. I am contemplating SeaWorld for Friday, but if it's nice out, we might also consider Aquatica. We are military, so the SeaWorld tickets would be free, so really I would just be paying for Aquatica.

My thought would be to try to hit Aquatica at 10, stay for maybe 3 hours. She won't be able to go on anything wild because of her height and temperament, so I can't imagine much more than 3 hours in the wave pool, lazy river and kids' area.

SeaWorld will be open until 7. If we got there at two, would that be enough time (again, no big rides for us)?

Or am I just kidding myself that she'd have the energy for this after 4 days at Disney? We could do one park or the other and just chill in the afternoon.

We've never done Aquatica, but have done SW. Depending on the show times, SW could be an all day park as well. IMO, there are 3 main shows to see.

One Ocean (Shamu)
Blue Horizons (Dolphins)
Clyde and Seamore (Sea Lions)

If you wanted to see all 3 of the main shows, plus animal exhibits, then I would skip Aquatica. It might be possible to see everything, but you would have to rush through. If all you wanted to see was the main shows, then it might be possible to do both SW and Aquatica. Again, depending on show times. Usually there are only 3-4 performances for each main show per day.

If you don't want to try to break the day in half and do all SW has to offer you can always let her play at shamu harbor. There is a nice size splash area. The kids love it. All kinds of water fountains and a big dump bucket. Also gives us a nice break to just sit and relax while they play.
