SeaWorld Offers BOGO Annual Passes to Orlando Theme Park

SeaWorld BOGO offerIf you’ve been waiting for a great deal on annual passes to SeaWorld Orlando and Aquatica, now is the time to get them! It isn’t often Orlando theme parks offer BOGO (Buy One, Get One) deals on their annual passes, so take advantage of this deal now. SeaWorld is a great park to visit over and over again, and this is the most affordable way to do that.

Annual pass members receive unlimited admission, free general parking, 10% off food, beverages and merchandise, plus other exclusive benefits. For as little as $156, you and another friend or family member can visit SeaWorld next year as often as you’d like. Add an additional $24 ($180) and you can include Aquatica in your plans too!

The benefits of this BOGO offer don’t stop there either. If you are an Annual Passholder, and you have friends or relatives coming into town, you will receive a discount on single-day admission for up to six people on the date of their visit! You will also receive a discount on certain Adventure Camps for your children. It is a great deal, especially when the second pass is FREE!

ORLANDO TOURIST TIP: Purchase your passes online so you’ll have free parking the very first time you go. This deal is only available in advance – not at the park’s gate and expires February 28, 2015. It is restricted to residents of the US, Canada and Puerto Rico. Also, there is a limit of six, but hey, that still means you’ll get 12 annual passes for the price of 6!

Considering one-day tickets are $95 for adults ($90/ages 3-9), an Annual Pass just makes good sense, especially if you plan to attend this Orlando theme park more than once. With the new Clyde & Seamore sea lion show, “Clyde & Seamore’s Sea Lion High,” debuting in the spring, you’ll definitely want to include SeaWorld in your plans for fun things to do in 2015.

Holiday Offer

SeaWorld Orlando is offering one free child’s admission with each paid adult through December 31. Already have an annual pass? Then be sure to visit this attraction from December 19-31, and you’ll be treated to SeaWorld’s Christmas Celebration. The special shows include:

  • “Shamu’s Christmas Miracles,” the nighttime killer-whale show, produced at Shamu Stadium, emphasizing peace and friendship.
  • “O Wondrous Night,” a carol-intense production of the Christmas story, featuring both puppetry and live animals in Nautilus Theater.
  • “Winter Wonderland on Ice,” an outdoor figure-skating show accompanied by dancing fountains at Bayside Stadium.
  • “Elmo’s Christmas Wish,” a stage show with Sesame Street characters.
  • The Sea of Trees, installed above the theme park’s central lagoon, this light show is set to holiday music.

If you’ve thought about purchasing tickets to this Orlando theme park in the past, but didn’t, this is your chance to save big on attraction tickets. An Annual Pass is already a good deal, but to get one FREE is the best deal of all. A gift from SeaWorld that you can re-gift to your friends or family!

The Cost of a Warm Vacation in Central Florida

beachIf it has been awhile since you’ve vacationed in the Central Florida area, you may be in for sticker shock when you see the prices of the Orlando theme park tickets. Over a week ago Disney raised their ticket prices which prompted a rise in some of the Universal Studio tickets. While Disney has increased nearly all of their tickets, only gate prices at Universal have gone up in price. ORLANDO TOURIST TIP: Because of this increase in gate price, it is almost always better to purchase your tickets online ahead of time. Be sure to research various theme park discounts that are available, including military specials, Florida resident specials and others.

It would not be a surprise to see more Orlando theme park tickets go up in price. Gatorland raised their ticket prices last December and general admission is now $26.99, $18.99 for ages 3 to 12. Other smaller attractions are sure to follow this lead and also increase their theme park tickets.

On the contrary, SeaWorld has brought back one of their more popular promotions with a return of their $50 weekday ticket. SeaWorld tickets normally are $92 for a one-day ticket; $84 for ages 3-9, so this is a significant savings. Busch Gardens will also honor a similar special. What makes this so great is that it continues through May 5, 2014, which covers spring break and the beginning of SeaWorld’s 50th anniversary celebration later this month (begins March 21). It also will cover a few days of the new attraction opening in Busch Gardens, Pantopia.

There are almost always some freebies or discounts to be found. Currently a nice one from Disney includes a free Memory Maker package for guests booking their vacation with a qualifying WDW vacation. If you are already planning to book a Central Florida vacation through their site, be sure to ask if it qualifies for this freebie. There are quite a few exceptions.

Dispite the rise in ticket prices, vacationing in Central Florida is a great way to escape, especially after the brutal weather the northern states have experienced this Winter. It is hard to put a price tag on warm weather and sunshine. Orlando theme parks are offering plenty of that right now.
