SW ticket deals

Currently I can get our one-day SW tickets for our November trip for $69. Is this a good deal that I should secure now before it goes away or is there a good chance for a better price in the coming months? Thanks!

Yes! Get it!
If I saw $69 tickets id snap those up

I live in STL so if you're closer to Florida you may possibly get $49 flights but southwest will refund you (to your account to use later) if their prices go down on your flight.
Id do it!

Groupon is currently running an offer for a SeaWorld Fun Card for $74. If you were planning on visiting more than one day on your vacation (or want the option of doing so), then this would be your better deal. Plus, if you order through Ebates, you would get an additional 6% cash back ($4.44) making it essentially the same price as the one-day ticket.

Sorry April, I should've said "Seaworld"...sometimes all these abbreviations get confusing!

Thanks for the Groupon tip Gina. At this point, we're only planning to go one day but maybe we could sneak another partial day into our plans for the week.

You're welcome.

Another offer that might be worth checking into is the "play and dine" promo, which gives you park admission + all day dining for $95. The all day dining is worth $30, so again, it brings your park admission down to about $65:

That's a good price for adults!

A little bit less of a deal for kids since their meal plan is only $15, but great for adults since you don't have to worry about going on a weekday for the same price as dining+weekday ticket price.

If you have AAA they have the 1 day ticket + all day dining for $83.99 plus tax (it doesn't look like it is a FL resident only rate...)

And, when I went to Guest Relations at the end of the day to upgrade to a funpass, they gave me $82 credit towards the cost of the funpass, not a bad deal!

OMG Thank you Gina for sharing this! I was about to purchase our tickets this week with the WENDYS2014 promo code, but this is a MUCH better deal!

Has anyone purchased these from Groupon?

Can you order these and then order just the all day dining from the SW website or do you have to have tickets directly from SW in your cart to buy the all day dining plan for children (there will be 4 adult tickets in my cart, but no kids tickets)?

I'm thinking of ordering 4 of the adult eat all day for free tickets and 3 of the tickets from Groupon for my kids + add the all day dining from the SW website for the kids. We're currently planning on going on a Friday, but I'm worried that we might get rained out and have to go on a Saturday in which case the weekday tickets would be void. This way we'd pay almost the same price but have the option to go on a Saturday if needed.

So many choices to consider when buying tickets, meal plans, etc for a first time visitor.

Yes you can buy as many meal plans as you want. You dont have to have tickets in the cart for the meals. Some people buy tickets and meal plans separately.

^This^ .

Its actually one of the things I *LOVE* about SeaWorld (one of the many things, lol ). You can buy the dining plan no matter how you purchased your ticket. And you can even wait and buy it the day of your visit, right at the park. Its a marvellous system!
