We are trying to decide on a hotel on I-drive for Jan. 4-5 and are considering SpringHill Suites Orlando. The reviews are good and thinking it might be a better idea to stay at a SeaWorld Partner hotel to get the quick queue benefits. A couple of questions. For anyone who has visited SeaWorld around this time period, do you think we will even need quick queue passes? If I reserve for Jan. 4-5, do you think we would have any problem showing up on Jan. 3rd (we will drive over from Disney) to pick up the queue passes rather than take a chance they might run out, even though we are not officially checked in (I guess we could show our e-mail confirmation). Has anyone done this? We want to get to SeaWorld at opening on Jan. 4 and it would save time to already have the passes in hand.
