SeaWorld's All-Day Dining plan: Is it worth it?

If you’re spending the day at SeaWorld® Parks & Resorts™ Orlando, you have a lot to consider. Do you start the morning riding Kraken Unleashed or kick things off by satisfying your need for speed aboard Mako? Will you spend the afternoon learning about life under the sea at Ocean Discovery, or dancing away at the Sesame Street® Party Parade? Who should you visit first – turtles, stingrays, or sea lions? There are plenty of choices for everyone!

Regardless of how you spend your day, you’re certainly going to work up an appetite. So, if you’re wondering if SeaWorld’s All-Day Dining Plan is the best bang for your buck, here are a few key points to help you decide.

It’s Easy and Convenient

It’s important to know that SeaWorld Orlando doesn’t allow outside food inside the park (though exceptions are made for bottled water and bite-sized snacks). So, if you’re planning on spending the entire day here, odds are at some point you’ll want a bite to eat. That’s where SeaWorld’s All-Day Dining Plan comes in handy. It’s all food and no fuss. Simply purchase your plan ($39.99/adult, $19.99/children ages 3–9), and you’re set for an all-day buffet. Each pass is good for one entrée, one side or dessert, and one soft drink or iced tea every hour at nine participating restaurants throughout the park. And you can use your pass from the minute the park opens until 30 minutes before a participating restaurant closes. Say goodbye to comparing prices and sharing entrées. Just order your meal, flash your pass, and dive in! And if you want to upgrade your adult pass to include one draft beer or wine every hour, it’s only $54.99/adult. Cheers to that!

SeaWorld Orlando offers a variety of unique restaurants serving up healthy, hearty, and — most importantly — delicious food the entire family will enjoy. Vegetarians will love the crispy pan-seared tofu at Waterway Grill, while beef eaters will drool just thinking about the bacon cheeseburger at Spice Mill. Getting an early start to your day? Stop in at Seafire Grill for the continental breakfast or grab a midday snack at Mama’s Pretzel Kitchen. Since your pass is good for a meal every hour, you could stop in at each participating restaurant and try something from everywhere! After all, you’re on vacation. Check out this helpful list of all the participating restaurants:

  • Voyager's Smokehouse
  • Expedition Café
  • Seaport Pizza
  • Captain Pete's Island Hot Dogs
  • The Spice Mill
  • Seafire Grill
  • Mama's Pretzel Kitchen
  • Waterway Grill
  • Mango Joe's

The Math Checks Out

Here in Kissimmee, we do more than make memorable vacations. We’re also pretty good at math. We’ve crunched the numbers and are happy to report SeaWorld’s All-Day Dining Plan is quite a deal. Think of it this way: On average, a meal at SeaWorld for adults is anywhere between $16 and $24. For kids, it’s between $10 and $12. That means after two meals and a snack, you’ll probably break even. Add in a third meal, and you’ll definitely start seeing the value. And since you can use your pass outside of participating restaurants (fountain beverages are included at the cart locations if you need a quick drink), the savings really start to add up.

If you’re just as interested in cold drinks as warm meals, you’ll want to consider adding a souvenir cup to go along with your All-Day Dining Plan, and not just because it’s an awesome memory of your day at the park. When you purchase a souvenir cup, you’ll get refills all day long for only $.99. That’s in addition to the hourly beverages included with your All-Day Dining Plan! Quench your thirst for drinks, so you can quench your thirst for thrills on Infinity Falls, Manta, and more of SeaWorld Orlando’s exciting rides.

Come “Sea” What’s on the Menu

When you take a closer look, it’s easy to see that SeaWorld’s All-Day Dining Plan is a great value, especially if you’re spending your entire day exploring the wonders of the waters and beyond.
