    Sea World posted on Facebook "It’s true! Dine With Shamu will resume at SeaWorld Orlando this spring. As soon as we start taking reservations, we’ll be sure to let you know."

    This is such good news considering I called two days ago to ask if it was returning and I was told no. I can't wait to go back for a 3rd time!

    I think that they may have just re-started it, but my niece and I ended up doing the Sea Lions up close tour instead.

    So, it seems Dine with Shamu is back. Can someone tell me what times you can do this? Lunch, dinner, either? How long does it take? How much is it per person. Hoping to dine next August (2012)....and I couldn't find schedule nor pricing info on line.

    Dine with Shamu is not back yet. It is still closed 'until further notice'.
    They are rebuilding something, so it won't start until that is finished.
    I've contacted SeaWorld about this, but they can't give a date.

    You're right. I misread the info. :(. Well, maybe by late next summer it will be back, or at least I hope so. We'd love to do this.

    I loved Dining with Shamu and was sorry it wasn't available for my most recent trip to SeaWorld, but the worst part of it being closed is that they've also blocked off the underwater viewing of the killer whales. Now the only way to see them is at their shows. This was a huge disappoiintment.

    The Underwaterviewing/Dine with Shamu pool has been under construction since the beginning of the year, and has been closed since the tragic accident in Feb of 2010. Because it is still under construction, the whales are not allowed in the pool because of noise and debris that could be in the pool, so even if underwater viewing was open, there would be no whales there.

    I would venture to guess at the earliest spring break time 2012 will it reopen; but I wouldn't count on it. My guess is Summer 2012; but even still, anything is possible.

    Any updated info on when and if this may reopen? Wondering if any recent visitors have any scoop.

    ..... back open as of today! :cool1:

    As of right now, reservations can be made at the in-park reservations center or by calling 800-327-2420. I am guessing the website will be updated soon.

    The reservations are currently only available at the park. You can not make reservations online right now. My guess is it's still in the soft opening stages right now.

    Can you make advanced reservations using the number that a PP posted above? Does anybody know what the cost is? We are going in October and would love to go.
