As we all know, going to the theme parks are expensive! After paying for travel, tickets, and parking, how can you even think about paying for food? Luckily, if you’re going to SeaWorld Orlando, there are a lot of options for eating on a budget!
Here are 3 ways to save on food at Seaworld Orlando!
The All Day Dining Deal
If you’re planning on spending the entire day at the park, SeaWorld has an all-day dining deal that you might want to check out. The dining deal allows you to go to any of the restaurants (excluding specialty events and Sharks Underwater Grill) once per hour to receive an entree, a dessert, and a drink. (Children get a kids meal and a drink) When you purchase the all-day dining deal, you will receive a wristband with a barcode that they will scan at the checkout line.
The price changes with the seasons but it usually stays somewhere around $34.99 for adults and $19.99 for kids, plus tax. With an entree and drink normally running around $12 – $15 per meal, all you have to do if have two meals and it’s paid for itself.
All Day Dining starts at park opening and ends about 30 minutes before a restaurant closes. Just don’t be like us and try to eat at every single restaurant, every hour!
SeaWorld offers refillable cups that can be purchased from any restaurant or food cart. They are $14.99 for one, $12.99 for two, and three or more are $10.99 each. Once you purchase your souvenir cup you will get free refills for the rest of the day. For future visits, you can either choose to pay $.99 per refill or upgrade for $5.99 to get free refills all day. If you’re an annual passholder you also get discounts on the cups and refills.
Bring Your Own Lunch
SeaWorld is one of the only parks that give you the option to bring your own food and drink to the park. Pack your lunch, drinks, and snacks and head over to the provided picnic tables near the pet kennel (On the outside of the park)
Coolers up to 14 x 14 are allowed in the park but keep in mind that they will be subject to a search at the bag check area. If you need to have a bigger cooler or you want to bring more than one meal, you also have the option to leave it in your car and take a short walk out to grab it when you’re ready.
