“I love SeaWorld”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 29, 2012

First, I adore animals and conservation so Sea World is a natural (ha - pun intended) fit for me. They have a wide variety of informatively displayed animals in beautiful landscaping. Must sees for us include the dolphins (above view, underwater view, and young in separate exhibit) and the whales and the bird and, the newest exhibit, sea turtles.

Young children to adults will enjoy time spent at Sea World.

A Behind the Scenes tour (additional cost) is fun for those people who enjoy a bit of structured time. The tour guide is entertainingly informative while giving a look behind it all.

“Family Fun”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 29, 2012

Visiting Orlando this time of year was a great time. The weather was wonderful the week with temperatures in the low to mid 70's.

The SeaWorld experience exceeded expectations as the lines were short throughout the park with many rides having no lines at all. Lines to sll the shows we attended were very short and we could plan our day around not standing in lines. We were able to see just about everything the park had to offer. All of us rode several rides multiple times while still taking in all the shows.

“Overpriced and staff treat you like crap”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed November 28, 2012 via mobile

I never write these reviews but felt this time I needed to. After visiting sea world Orlando today I can honestly say it will be the last time. I have never been anywhere that the staff are so rude and ungrateful of the business before.
Staff at kiosks can't even be bothered to leave their personal conversations to acknowledge or serve you and a please or thankyou is non existent.
The park obviously has a serious staff moral issue which is passed on to the customers with no hesitation at all.
I may have felt it was just me but when a 4 year old asks why the people are rude it says it all.
As regular Orlando visitors we will never be wasting our time and money in sea world again.

“Christmas Fun at Sea World”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 28, 2012

Visited Sea World again after a few years away. All of the shows were even better than previously. The park was well decorated for Christmas with lots of trees on land and a Sea of Trees that changed color to music in the lake. Oh Wondrous Night and the new holiday ice show were particularly good. The new Turtle Trek exhibit was interesting. Not as many baby dolphins as last time but a few baby sea lions. The Italian buffet at the back was an improvement over the old restaurant there.

Only negative was the dining option. Only good for about half of the restaurants and none of the food kiosks and no good for bottled drinks except water. Break even if you have 3-4 meals there, otherwise skip it.
