Situated just miles in between the Walt Disney World and Universal Orlando Resorts is SeaWorld Orlando. This theme park resort offers guests a different experience than either of its competitors – while Disney and Universal have different theme parks that offer their own unique experiences, SeaWorld Orlando offers a look at sea creatures and land-based animals living in their natural habitats, and combines that experience with a little of everything you would expect at Disney and Universal all in one place, with rides, shows and other attractions suitable for the entire family.
In our Introduction to SeaWorld, you will learn all about the history of SeaWorld, and you can also find out all about the best times to visit the theme park, all of the special events that take place throughout the year, as well as the best hotels around the park, the best restaurants and the best rides and attractions that SeaWorld Orlando has to offer.
SeaWorld Orlando, however, isn’t the only Anheuser-Busch theme park in Central Florida. If you are looking to expand your horizons for an even greater entertainment experience, you can visit our Introduction to Parks section to learn all the pertinent information you will need about SeaWorld Orlando, and SeaWorld is a lot more than just Shamu these days (you can be a trainer for the day), Busch Gardens in nearby Tampa, Fla., Discovery Cove and the soon-to-be-opened water park, Aquatica. From buying tickets and information on special needs to descriptions of attractions, shows and your dining and shopping options and the best insider secrets and tips, you can find it all here.
Navigating is also important in getting to these theme park attractions. While SeaWorld Orlando, Discovery Cove and Aquatica are all within seconds of each other, Busch Gardens is located about an hour west of Orlando in nearby Tampa, Fla. For transportation options, as well as information on how to get there, including parking information, be sure to check out this all-important section.
Finally, once you have learned all about the parks and how to get there, be sure to check out our section on Character Dinning and the Makahiki Luau, SeaWorld Orlando’s exclusive evening extravaganza. This authentic Polynesian Luau is filled with the tastes and entertainment of a festival straight from the Pacific Isles and is sure to be a hit with everyone in the family.
