ID at the parks

We have a DC e-ticket, although we'll be going to SeaWorld before our trip to DC. Do we have to bring ID with us each time (SW, then DC, then AQ)? If so, is a UK driving license sufficient or do we need to bring passports?

Also, with visiting SW first, do we just go to the normal ticket window with our print-out? Can we get a proper park ticket (for scrapbook) at any of the SW parks?

Thanks

Drop by DC first - they will take your pictures and give you a lanyard and id that you can use at all the parks. Make sure you buy the unlimited parking pass for $25 while you're there.

I would make sure you have some kind of ID with you. I have an AP - the last two times I have gone through the biometric ticket readers at the front gates my finger print hasn't worked and they have asked for ID - also if you want to buy any drinks they may be required to ask for ID. I would think any kind of photo ID that lists your birth date would suffice - driving license would be fine.

Have a great trip!

Does the parking pass work for Aquatica and Busch Gardens too, or just SeaWorld?

Thanks!

No you do not need to go to dc first--you can go to Aquatica and they will hook you up--I think that the pp was just stating that if you go to Discovery Cove first you will get the pic lanyard and this can be used for all park more easily.

Still await for an answer on the unlimited parking pass which at 25 for 14 days would make it a good investment and worth going to Discovery first so tht all other park parking would be free--will be interested in finding out!

If there is an unlimited parking pass at $25 that would be good as parking each time @ SW / AQ is $14. I can't see any option on the website about such a pass, only the ability to pay for one-day parking ahead of time.

FYI, I called DC today and found that the parking pass is unlimited for 14 days, includes Busch Gardens as well as SeaWorld and Aquatica, and is now $30, not $25.

Ah, so the $30 does not indicate a price increase, just my need for a pass that includes Busch Gardens! Thanks for the info!

How much of a pain would it be to swing by DC on our way to Aquatica to get our IDs and a parking pass? Our first day we plan to go to Aquatica, so it would be nice to have our IDs & parking pass since DC is later in our trip. And if I do this, do I get in the same line as everything checking in for the day or would I go to a guest services area or something?

Isn't parking free at Discovery Cove? Seems odd to me that you have to go there to buy the unlimited parking pass. I'll be interested to see if it can be bought online.

I had already searched online but they didn't have the option, only a 1 day pass. Their email i posted above confirms it is not online. They have provided phone numbers.
I'd think it's because the DC package comes with 14 day access to SW and AQ so it makes sense that as part of this they offer a discounted 14 day parking pass to those parks. Shame they don't advertise it more, but definitely worth it
