it was great, a bit crowded, but we got there early and missed the lines for the first half of the day.

It's Impossible to say anything bad about this park. Everything is fantastic. I love the shows best. Never been before near the holiday but now I want to always go then. Christmas trees out on the water were spectacular. Loved the snow globe too.....great for Florida kids that may have never experience the real thing. My only regret is that I was a couple days too early to see the Christmas show. Love, love, love Seaworld! Make the park bigger and have e en more wonderful stuff. You will be able to see most of the shows in one day but if you want to experience the rides also, then this should be a 2-day park.

We visited SeaWorld in Orlando and we have already been to the one in San Diego so we knew pretty much what to exepct, but the one in Orlando is bigger and, since passed some years from our visit to the one in San Diego, we felt the quality of the shows is lower now. We saw the Shamu show that was nothing special, the Blue Horizon show was better because included different kind of animals and a better scenography, and the one of the sea lions and seals was awful, the people who work there can't act, dance or entertain, so please don't do it. There are a few rides, Manta is the highlight of the park but we did not do it since we find it too extreme, we enjoyed Journey to Atlantis, it is really good and you get quite wet...there is a side of the park with rides and games for children, and there are plenty of places to eat, try the buffet at Terrace Garden, lovely view, good prices for an endless choice of beverage, pasta, pizza and desserts but beware of the wild birds who actually steal your food. The merch is nice and a little cheaper compared to the Disney or Universal prices. We did the "feed a dolphin" experience, you pay 7 dollars per person, and you actually can see a dolphin up-close, you can feed him and you can try to touch it. Tne park was not very crowded, but overall it was nothing special, is more relaxing that the others but we think the people who run the park are pretty hypocrite because their message is "SeaWorld cares" and they keep animals like sharks, killer whales, dolphins and so on in quite small pools using them for the entertainment of the audience and to get more money ( with up-close experience that can be very pricey). Some animals are rescued, but not all and the quality of the shows is not that good, the worst was Allure, an acrobatic show that was really boring, it was done by people who had no gift at all in being on a stage and they only wanted the clapping. They were so ...bad. Overall is a place where you can spend a nice day or two since when you buy the one day ticket you have the second day free, so you have more time to see everything, but we think people are basically too dumb to understand what SeaWorld really is, the rides can be okay, but all the animals factors are really bad, and if parks like that would not exist of course everything would be better for the so beloved SeaWorld's ocean.

This is a great family park suitable for all ages. There is something for everyone. The shows are great and the new coaster Manta is a real winner. Food was lovely. Couldn't fault anything really.

We went to Seaworld in Feb., Perfect weather and short lines, BBQ bands going on the second day we went, more crowded but still alot of fun. We had a little one so we rode the kids rides with her and got to pet dolphins and stingrays. Had fun in shark aquarium, and food great, we ate at 2 different restraunts there on sight.
