Character Dining at Sea World
The Walt Disney World Resort may be known for their famous characters, but Sea World Orlando has quite a few larger-than-life stars of their own that fans want to see and meet. In fact, while Disney specializes in character dining experiences, Sea World Orlando too has a variety of options for seeing their characters up close and personal, whether it is dinner with Shamu or breakfast with Elmo and friends!
Sea World Orlando, as we mentioned above, has a little different idea of character dining experiences than its rival parks at Walt Disney World and Universal Orlando. In fact, the biggest character around – Shamu the whale – is the central figure for the entire Sea World chain of parks, so it only makes sense that one of the dinner experiences here is a dinner with the killer whale. Dine With Shamu is an exclusive opportunity for you and your family to dine poolside and see these vast creatures in their habitat backstage while you mingle and learn about the animals from their trainers. You will enjoy a buffet dinner that includes a fresh garden salad, Caesar salad, pasta primavera, beef stew, seafood creole, sliced turkey, oven roasted chicken, pasta shrimp alfredo and multiple side items. Kids have a separate menu, including pasta with meatballs, hot dogs and macaroni and cheese. Desserts include assorted Petit Fours and pastries and Shamu cookies, while beverages include Pepsi products, iced tea and select Anheuser-Busch beers. This dinner experience is available by reservation only, and your spot can be reserved at the Dining Reservations Counter inside the main gate or online.
Sea World also offers another unique opportunity to dine backstage with Shamu and his trainers at the Backstage at Believe Buffet. Here, you will enjoy an insider’s view of the making of Shamu’s show at Sea World, Believe, hosted by the show’s stage manager. Your dinner also includes a poolside buffet, reserved VIP seating at a show and a keepsake hand-carved wooden whale tail necklace to take home as a souvenir.
If you are looking for a character experience where you can actually interact with your favorite characters, you might want to try Sea World’s Breakfast with Elmo and Friends. This breakfast buffet gets your morning off on the right foot, as you eat alongside all your favorite characters from Sesame Street
. This experience is held twice each morning at the SeaFire Inn, from 8:30-9:30 a.m. and again from 10:30-11:30 a.m. Reservations are again required and can be made at the Dining Reservations Counter inside the main gate or online.
It is important to remember, however, that admission to the parks is required for all of the above dinner experiences.
