Buying SeaWorld Orlando Florida Resident Tickets

If you are a Florida resident, then you can often get special discounts or extended use on standard SeaWorld Orlando day and multi-park tickets. Usually Florida and Georgia residents are eligible to buy a Florida Resident Fun Card ticket which lasts a calendar year.

You can also purchase annual passes which can make economic sense if you plan to visit a number of times during the year, plus meal deals and Quick Queue passes.

SeaWorld also offer a number of special “close-up” and “behind-the-scenes” tours and animal interaction packages for those who want to find out a bit more about the various animals and attractions.. Note that some of the tours have minimum age restrictions.

SeaWorld Orlando Reservations

At that start of the COVID-19 pandemic whilst capacity was limited, you could not get into the park without a specific date reservation, even if you had a multi-day ticket. Therefore you had to make an online reservation for each day you wished to visit.

In July 2021 this reservation restriction at SeaWorld Orlando was lifted except for certain date specific tickets.

SeaWorld Orlando Florida Resident Ticket Options

For admission to SeaWorld Orlando, children under 3 are admitted for free but children from the ages of 3 and above must now purchase an adult ticket. There are no longer any child ticket prices at SeaWorld Orlando with the exception of meal deals and a few of the tours.

Florida residents get often special deals over and above normal SeaWorld Orlando tickets, such as the Fun Card which is valid for a whole calendar year.

To qualify for a SeaWorld Florida resident ticket you will need to provide proof of Florida residency with the appropriate ID.
