Smile Thanksgiving Day - Sea World or Universal?

I have never been to Sea World or Universal and were planning on visiting each of these to parks over Thanksgiving. We are going to be in Orlando late Wednesday and returning home on Monday morning. Planning on visiting MK on Sunday and bought tickets to the Very Merry Christmas party.
We will be there for 3 other days and deciding when to go to Sea World and Universal. Any suggestings from you all would be much appreciated!

I would suggest Friday for Seaworld. The days following Thanksgiving are a little busier than most days. Seaworld is the least popular park between Disney, and Universal IOA so you will have the least crowds at Seaworld during a busy time.

Also on the Friday after Thanksgiving, Seaworld has its Christmas celebration which features Nighttime Christmas shows like Shamu Christmas Miracles. These night shows are different than the traditional day shows. The day shows will obviously run during the day and Christmas shows at night. There is a holiday fireworks finale. A Christmas themed ride called "Polar Express Experience" which is a motion simulator set to scenes from the popular movie "Polar Express" and much more. Believe it or not, Seaworld was rated as the Best Christmas destination in Central Florida last year. Which is why I think the Christmas celebration at Seaworld is a must see.

What is best about the Christmas celebration is unlike the Very Merry Christmas party, Seaworld's Christmas celebration (Shows and Rides) are all included with park admission. The only thing that costs extra is the dinner show "Santas Fireside Feast" Here is more info on all the Seaworld Christmas events....

We are planning to hit SeaWorld on the Friday after Thanksgiving. We were hoping everyone would be flooding Disney and Universal that day
