I will give you the strategy we use.@leiaorgana,
I'm so clueless about Seaworld -- I haven't been since I was a kid and remember little to nothing.
We've also got all-day dining, so that's something else to figure out.
I wish someone could just tell me what to do and the order in which to do it, lol.
Sorry, @maryj11, didn't mean to hijack your thread!
Go to the website and check the show times of the day you will be there. Decide which shows you want to see and the times and make a list. The daytime and night time shows are different and we do not miss any of them.
After you know the schedule for the shows you want to see, work everything else you want to do in between the show times. We don't plan that part out really except to try to do the things that are in the part of the park we are in. I consider there to be two parts. The main part is the front of the park and the back part which is where the shamu stadium is in. The back part is the area with sesame street is in. Even if you do not have little kids it is still a fun area and since you have all day dinning, the food trucks in that area are included in all day dinning and have some good food. We really liked the grilled cheese place although I wasn't over thrilled with the chicken strips. They were good, but not my favorite.
If you send me a private message with your email address, I have a file of all the menus that are on the all day dining so you can get an idea of what you will be looking for.
If you have not been in a long time, it is completely changed. I think if you have nothing else planned you should add another day on to your visit esp if you want to ride a lot of the rides. On infinity falls you can expect to get wet, but we still rode it over and over because it is so much fun.
There are so many things to see and I can spend quite a while just touching the stingrays, watching the dolphins in the nursery area, they never disappoint.
Be sure to get in a preformance of pets ahoy and try to see the turtle trek. The area the turtle trek is in is a hidden gem that I think a lot of people miss.
I think SW all day dinning is the best bargain in orlando. So many food choices and unlimited drinks all day alone make it worth the cost for us. I was just disappointed on my last trip because there was only one place with watermelon. My favorite fruit of all time so I kept having to swing by there to get my fix.
