Breakfast at Sea World before park opens; any special treats @ SW?

We are doing the all day dining @ Sea World. My question is which restaurant serves breakfast and can you get in before park opens to eat? I want to get the most for my money so we will def eat breakfast, but we want to do dolphin feeding first thing and then rides, so would love to eat prior to that. Any thoughts??

ETA: Also, are there any special treats or souvenirs at SW along the lines ofthe Mickey Ice Cream Bar or Dole whip or shaped balloon? I am trying to hype up SW so kiddos will be as excited about it as MK but they've never been. I wanted to do some coupons for a special treat they could look forward to. Does anone know if any DISigners have anything already made? I have looked through tons and haven't seen anything at all for Sea World, so maybe there isn't anything. I thought I would make one for a plate of fish to feed the dolphins.

We never ate bf at seaworld as we didn't want to waste time. We did however do many fun things. Kids top:

Rides in the A.M: no lines even for Manta

Sure win carnival games, all kids get a prize not too bad for $3( my kids got 1 large and 1 med)

Bubble guns shaped like whales that lite up, $10 kept the younger kids happy for hours( 5 ans 7 year old).

Cotten candy at the show, an oldie but really good one bag fed 5 kids and they had lots!

Face paint - they sell kits for $8 that gives you 2 designs, each can do 3 kids but we managed 5- these are located by the sand art area in the kiddie section.

There are Shamu Ice Cream bars. Unfortunately no balloons due to the fact that they could harm the animals in the exhibits. Sometimes, the Seafire INN serves breakfast, but that is only during the busy season. There is a bakery with baked goods like muffins that could potentially be breakfast.

We are going in 1 week, so I would guess that's pretty much peak season. Hopefully there will be a few options. Thanks for posting!

SeaWorld sells beautiful, soft plush animals ..... anything from sea turtles to penguins to killer whales and a whole host of others in between. They range in size and cost so there's literally something for every price range. If your kids are small, they would make for a wonderful end of the day souvenir.....allow them to choose their favourite animal of the day to take with them as they are leaving the park.

I bought my Godddaughter a stuffed Shamu and it was soooooo cuddly. She's carried it everywhere since January (including to bed every night) and it still looks and feels like its brand new.

Bump in hopes that someone might know about breakfast served prior to park opening?

The breakfast was good at the Voyager's Smokehouse restaurant, but you don't make reservations so unlike the WDW parks, they did not let us in prior to the park opening to eat there. The restaurant opens when the park does. There is a dolphin feeding at 11:30 though.

I'd probably get there by 11 or 11:10 to line up as the worker counts people with a hand held counter and cuts the line off after a certain number. I don't know what that number is. We were there two different days and did the dolphin feeding on our first day and used our All-Day Dining on our 2nd because the park was open longer and we could get all three meals in. If you have one day only and want breakfast, I'd probably just go with the 11:30 feeding.

My daughter really enjoyed feeding them.
