How Many Days to do SW


We are booking at the Residence Inn at SW and just wondering how many days those it take to see everything at SW. Can it be done in one or two days. We want to take our time, since we will be doing Disney World an Universal for a 10 days before, with all that running, we want this one to be casual and relaxed.

Sorry I see I posted this 2 times. Can't figure out how to delete the extra post

I deleted the other thread for you.

You can tour SeaWorld in a single day but if you decide to do everything, I don't think you'll find it very relaxing especially during a busy travel period. The shows are scheduled and trying to work them into your touring plans might take some doing. If you can spend two days you can definitely do and see everything at a relaxed pace.

It is very hard to see all the shows in one day. So if you want to see them all, plus do some rides and interactions with animals, I recommend 2 days.

2 days will make it very relaxing and allow you to just enjoy and take your time. It is completely doable to do it in one day but you would be bouncing from one area to another and rushing to get to all the shows.

Thank you all very much. This has helped alot. We def want to do it easy, since we will be hustling at DW & Univ, so 2 days it is for SW. And with the easy pace will make it better for the long 14 hour drive back home.

Thank you.

Agree with 2 days

Here now & just spent the day. While we completed 90% of our top items in one day it will be nice to have tomorrow to get everything else that we would like & get to repeat a few of the most enjoyable.

Hopefully Antartica will open while you are there - looks to be a great addition to the park.

I agree that you really do need 2 days at SW if you want to ride all the rides AND see all the shows. The first time we went to Sea World it was just Dh and I and we didn't ride any rides. All we did was see all the shows.

We looked on the website before we got there and looked at all the show times for the day we would be there and we scheduled the shows where we basically went from one show to the next only taking a break in there to stop and have lunch and we saw all the shows they were showing that day. We were there until about 4:30 that day. From opening to 4:30.

The second time we went the kids were with us and the 2 older ones wanted to ride EVERYTHING so we rode a lot of rides and just saw a couple of the shows and we also spent the whole day there until around 3:30.

Remember when you look at the show times that each show lasts about 20-30 minutes then you need to be at the next show about 30 minutes prior to showtime to get in line so you can have your pick of seats.

We will have the 14 days unlimited passes that come with DC and are staying at the residence inn so I think we are going to plan one full day there and then maybe a couple of half days in between other things. I've been to all of the Seaworlds (San Antonio, San Diego and Orlando) but never more than a day at each so I'm pretty excited we can leisurely do it this time.
