If there is one thing we did, that I’d advise you to just avoid, it’s SeaWorld. My husband had great memories of SeaWorld from his childhood, so he considered it a “must do”. And from my visit to another SeaWorld park when I was nine, I agreed. We loved all that we learned there as kids. Education was a huge part of their mandate back then, unfortunately that’s no longer the case.
Very honestly? Knowing what we know now? We’d have just skipped it. It’s not worth the time.
We all enjoyed the kid zone, with it’s mini-roller coaster and other amusement park rides, but that wasn’t worth the cost of admission. So yeah! Planning a trip to Orlando Florida? Hit all of Disney, plan for at least five or six days in the parks… but erase SeaWorld off your list. It’s not worth the time or money. I actually found the entire place to be very disheartening. 😦 That said, we put on happy faces and did our best to act like it was awesome. After all, it wasn’t really about us.
