    It just got officially announced - March 27

    On March 27, Sesame Street comes alive at SeaWorld Orlando! Hang out with Elmo, Cookie Monster, Abby and the rest of the gang. See famous spots like Hooper’s Store and Big Bird’s Nest. With an award-winning parade and rides, Sesame Street at SeaWorld Orlando is more fun than you could ever dream.

    I'm so excited for this. My 3yo is going to love it. It's so great there are so many kids rides and attractions. I'm really wishing I allocated 2 Seaworld days instead of just 1. We also will have a 10 month old too so that water play area we could spend the entire day in. When it was Shamu's happy harbor we spent hours there, this is going to be so much better.
    bring on September!

    It looks like there will NOT be a pass member preview before the area opens to the public. It looks like they still expect to open on March 27 so must not be any major issues.

    Just came back from Sesame Street. First of all the park was packed which makes me super happy.
    You can tell Sesame Street was made with love, I got to talk to one of the people in charge of the design, he said they worked for almost 2 years on the planning and there are a lot of details that makes my 45 year old heart happy. Old school stuff all around. Make sure to look at every cranny and nook, lots and lots of details. The parade was cute, about 15 minutes long, the floats stop and they do a kind of dance party. 3 food trucks and some places to sit and eat. The only thing I think it needs is a bit more shade
    Elmo and Cookie Monster meet inside but I saw
    Oscar the Grouch
    Bert and Ernie
    Grover, Rosita
    Praire Dawn, Telly and Zoe
    Rosita, Grover and Count

    I just watched a video on the new area. SW is really stepping it up for little kids. You could easily spend at least half a day in there.

    Anybody know what time the parade is? I may need to alter our plans because we will have a 3 yr old with us.

    The parades are currently at 2 PM and 4:30 PM. These appear to be every day.

    There are some days that also show an 11:00 AM parade. Right now I only see those listed on the weekends. The first one I see is this Saturday March 30.

    Thanks. Looking at my plan, we will be in the area around that time on the second day so no need of a plan change.

    He is going to be so excited. He was disappointed in Nov because his much older brother got to go on so many rides. He didn't understand why he could not ride too, but this area is just his size.

    He is going to love that parade too.

    Just popping in to say I LOVED Sesame Street! I had no plans to check it out but it opened when I happened to be there so I went to take a few pics. I ended up spending a couple hours there, checking out the theming and watching the parade. I should mention that I was on a Moms only trip so I didn't even have my kids with me! I was pretty impressed with all the theming and extra touches. Then I was up last night and saw the Tim Tracker video and saw a whole bunch of stuff I never even saw myself!

    The food trucks are also on the all day dining plan. Very good grilled cheeses.
