    Link to various tix, including admission and upgrades.

    Note there was a presale for APH holders. Bought my show time tickets in July. Can’t remember if their Blue
    Friday sale included these tix last year. Their discounted offerings changed dramatically last year, haven’t seen any leaked information yet on a sale this year.

    We have planned for months to go to sea world on 11/17. We are staying at partner hotel so we will have the quick que pass. I see that the 17th is also the first day for the parks Christmas Celebration. Should I be worried about high crowd levels?

    I would not be surprised if it's busy on Sat (especially considering it's the first day of Christmas)

    Anyone seen their Blue Friday deals? $39.99 for weekday ticket (Mon-Fri), $49.99 for weekend (Sat&Sun). Does this apply to the Christmas Celebration days or is that considered a special event? If so, they should just advertise that it's valid Jan. 7-31 since CC runs everyday starting tomorrow Nov. 17-Jan. 6. But the BF deal says all this... Blockout dates Dec. 26 - 31, 2018. Must visit by January 31, 2019. This offer is not to be combined with any other special offers or discounts, and does not include special events.
    If Christmas Celebration is not a special event, what special event would they have going on during this time?

    Hello! I am bummed to see the priority meet and greet for Rudolph and friends is sold out for December 5th. I assume others can still wait to meet him right? Can anyone tell me the times Rudolph is out? The website offers very little information about meet and greet times. They could learn a thing or two from Disney. LOL Thanks so much!!!

    I believe in this case "sold out" means the same thing as "not available". According to the calendar when you go to buy they are sold out Monday to Thursday the first 3 weeks of December. These are days they are not running a full Christmas schedule, although they do have some Christmas things. I believe on these days the Bayside Pathway is not open at all, which is where the Rudolph meet and greet would be. They have availability on the weekends and also the full week of Christmas, which is when they have the full Christmas schedule.

    Thank you so much for your reply. It's like you know more than SeaWorld does. They could learn a thing or two from Disney (no offense). So on their Facebook Event Page (https://www.facebook.com/events/353889352042270/?active_tab=discussion) they do list that Rudolph meets every day in December but I can see several holiday shows are not done every day. Maybe since it's not an official holiday party day the Rudolph line won't be so bad. But I very much appreciate your thoughts on those days not even selling the priority meet and greets. It makes sense considering the weekend days are still open and those days would most likely be busier than weekdays. I guess I will just have to find out when I get there.

    I was able to stop at the park this morning. According to the map (strictly based on that, I have not seen this myself) they are having a Rudolph Movie Experience at Seafire Grill from 10am until 6pm. There is a show time every hour and then you can meet Rudolph after the movie. So no idea if they only sell the priority meet and greet when he is out on Bayside Pathway or if they truly did sell out (I suspect the former but have nothing to base that on.

    According to the map the experience is - Join us for an immersive 10 minute movie experience with dazzling lights, vibrant special effects, and delicious scents.

    You are amazing! I cannot thank you enough. I will be sure to look for the movie showtimes and then hopefully a meet and greet afterwards. I really hope you are correct. My daughter is obsessed with Rudolph and Clarice. This would put her over the edge (she's already over the moon about meeting princesses next week). Fingers crossed it all works out. Again, thank you much!!!
