Sorry to ask this here but ....

I asked over at the seaworld forum and got no replies so I was hoping somewhere here could answer a ? For me!! How are crowds at seaworld on a Sunday? We were planning to go next Sunday , may 5, with our 3 boys but could change to a weekday if its a waist to go on a crowded Sunday! Is it a full day or half day kind of place? I haven't been there in 20+ years so can't remember much! I would love some advice! Thanks!

You should be fine on a sunday. If you want to see all the shows it is a full day place. It has changed alot in 20 years have fun!

Sea World is at a minimum a full day park.Since there's only a handful or rides at the park and several shows crowds are not as big a problem as you don't have to make lines for the shows and other walk through attractions.Even so the summer crowds haven't started yet so the crowds shouldn't be horrible.What I would suggest is to
get there at park opening,grab a park map to plan your day around the showtimes,doing the coasters and rides,doing the other attractions and eating.

I don't know if this helps, but the Dibb is listing SW as one of the least recommended parks for that date:

But all that said, I don't think there's ever a "bad" day to visit SW.....its a family favourite .
