SeaWorld Orlando had something for everyone. Rides, exhibits, shows....The park was very clean, the workers all friendly and polite. Family-friendly. Definitely different atmosphere than the other parks. Beware - if you are a thrill seeker looking to be on rides all day, you will be disappointed; this is not the place for you. SeaWorld is about conservation, good citizenship, and educating the public without being too preachy. I'll admit, some of the songs in the shows were a bit cheesy, but they are trying to get a point across, and let's face it, it's not Broadway. The new Antartica exhibit was wonderful, although the penguins, cute as they are, were quite stinky. I did appreciate the 32 degree temperature inside the exhibit -- provided great relief from the excessive heat outside and was every menopausal woman's dream come true! Before the Shamu show began, they ran a brief film about our military and gave a shout out to the men and women of our armed forces. An employee came on stage, encouraged all active duty and former members of our military and those of Canada and all our allies to stand up and be recognized. Apparently, they receive free admission to SeaWord once a year (if I understood them correctly). It was heartwarming. In my opinion, SeaWorld was like a large aquarium with several rides and gift shops. My group (adults, teens) enjoyed it very much. I would definitely return.

Had no problems with queues. We really enjoyed the penguin ride and the shamu show. Bought food and fed a stingray after stroking them. Bought a refillable drinks cup which was great value and we could even use it at aquatica. A lovely park to walk around. The shamu ice cream with souvenir bowl was great value as well.

All the shows were great; Shamu Rocks was the best!
Go early for a seat in the splash zone; be there 45 minutes before the show.
Food can be expensive!
