Sea World discounts - historical data?

Does anyone know if there is a site that lists the past discounts for Sea World (like how there is one for Disney)? We are going in December and I'm trying to figure out the least expensive way to go. Right now I have the $20 Wendys coupon code, which really only takes $10 off the online purchase price, but it's something. I read somewhere that last year there were certain times when the free all day dining was offered with ticket purchase, and I have also read about kids free w/ adult ticket, but don't have any confirmation of this.

Does anyone know? We are going the first week of December.

Thanks!

Nobody? Bummer. Well, has anyone ever gotten any really good deals like buy an adult get a kid ticket free, or free dining? Or are these just rumors?

Just googled Sea World discounts, and it came up. I put it in online--it works. The code is SWWENDYS12.

I think most of the Disney historical discounts are on room-only or packages (which include accommodations), not on tickets-only like you are seeking for SeaWorld.

The Wendy's code does not give you a second day free, if I understand correctly. Not sure if you were planning on a one-day or multiple-day visit, so that's a consideration depending on your plans. The discount ticket available on the SeaWorld website (with the second day free) will be a better deal at $10 more than the Wendy's price *if* you were planning on a second visit to the park.

Have you checked to see if your local AAA office offers admission tickets at a discount (assuming you are a member)? That might be somewhere to try.

That Wendy's code expires 8/31 and it was my understanding that you couldn't use it to buy tix now for use after 8/31. (which I wanted to do). Correct me if I'm wrong

Don't know about historical information, but I thought they usually put out a deal for adults getting in at kid prices?

I'm looking for Sea World discount tickets for September. I'm hoping when those fast food discount codes expire on 8/31 maybe there will be a new one out. Has anyone used the Publix discount? How much off is it? Do WalMarts in Orlando have any deals on tix?

We got a childs ticket half off last Oct. with an adult purchase. It was also good for a 2nd visit if used within 7 days. We too are looking to go in December and are having no luck finding any sort of discounts. I wish I would have bought our tickets when they were still offering the 2nd day free over the summer. If we don't find something we will be skipping Seaworld. We will just have to find another time to visit. The best I have found is AAA is offering a discounted one day ticket with a free meal. The other option that was showing up was the fun card but the way I am understanding that now is that it is for Florida residents only. Correct me if I am wrong.

We bought the fun card last year for my mom and we are Ga residents.

The AAA offer with the free all-day dining is a GREAT savings (the meal plan, which offers unlimited food and beverages, is worth $32.99 per adult if purchased separately from your admission). I know it doesn't give you a second day free, but it still is an excellent deal for a one-day visit.

Even if the Fun Card is showing online on the Florida residents page, its still worth a call to see if non-Florida residents can purchase. We were able to buy the unlimited admission "Weekday Passes" for Aquatica for our August trip, and they were listed on the Florida residents page (as you probably noticed, I'm not a Florida resident......nor even a resident of the USA). When I called to inquire about the possibility of a similar pass for non-Florida guests, they reassured me that the passes were open to anyone, and their listing on the FL resident section of the website was simply because that's the demographic they are being marketed to. Then they put through the purchase for me right on the phone. Not one single problem using the tickets at the park.

2 years ago we got child's admission free with adult purchase. Haven't seen it since. We used the southwest rewards member two weeks ago when we were there. Got 20% off.
