Know Before You Go: SeaWorld Orlando’s Reopening

SeaWorld Orlando Reopening June 11 2020

Today is the day that SeaWorld Orlando is welcoming guests back to the park, and before you go here are a few things that you should know!

Reservations

SeaWorld Orlando Reopening June 11 2020

To help manage the capacity to maintain physical distancing within the park, SeaWorld Orlando is requiring advance online reservations.

The process is SUPER easy! Just visit the SeaWorld Orlando reservation page and fill in the required information.

Pro-Tip: If you wake up and decide that you want to venture out to SeaWorld Orlando, but don’t have a reservation…don’t worry! They are allowing same day reservations to be made as long as there are spots available.
SeaWorld Orlando Reopening June 11 2020

Face Coverings

Employees and guests 2 years of age and older must wear face coverings while in the park. Guests are not required to wear them while eating and drinking, or in one of the two designated relaxation areas of the park.

Pro-Tip: Did you forget your face covering or want to get into the SeaWorld Spirit? They are selling themed face covers at the entrance to the park for $9.99 plus tax! I super love the sloth design!!!
SeaWorld Orlando Reopening June 11 2020

Stores

Inside the retail shops, you will see markings for physical distancing and signage directing guests to defined entrances and exits.

Also, you will notice that displays and fixtures have been spaced out to give guests more room to move around.

To minimize contact of items at checkout, bagging and wrapping materials will be given to customers.

Pro-Tip: Set up your mobile wallet before coming to the park so it’s one less thing to do during your day that takes time away from the fun!
SeaWorld Orlando Reopening June 11 2020

Restaurants

Restaurants across the park have new seating layouts to accommodate physical distancing.

Tables and chairs will be sanitized with increased frequency, condiment and topping stations will be closed, utensils will be pre-packaged, and guests with refillable products will be provided single-use alternatives.

In lieu of traditional menus, single-use paper menus will be used, and additional grab-and-go and pre-packaged food offerings will be added.

Buffet-style service areas will be adjusted or closed until further notice.

Pro-Tip: To avoid lines, try grabbing a bite to eat at times that might not be ‘normal’ dining times. I like to grab an early lunch and dinner so I have room for snacks! Did you see the rainbow cake in the case??? YUM!!!!
SeaWorld Orlando Reopening June 11 2020

Attractions & Play Areas

The queue lines for all rides have markings for physical distancing and modified seating has been implemented to maintain physical distancing. Currently, most attractions are only loading every other row.

Guests will also find that hand sanitizer is available at the entrance and exit of all rides, and the frequency of cleaning and sanitizing of these areas has been increased.

There are specific protocols that have been implemented for water rides for employees and guests.

In addition, unless play areas meet distancing protocols, they will be temporarily closed.

Pro-Tip: Since attraction loading and unloading is different, be prepared for slightly longer waits than usual. I anticipate that as time goes on and Ambassadors become more accustomed to the new procedures the wait times will drop accordingly.

Shows

Much like the attractions, the walkways of venues have markings for physical distancing and modified seating has been implemented to maintain physical distancing.

Since seating has been limited in their venues, SeaWorld Orlando has added extra shows so make sure to keep an eye on your schedule.

Pro-Tip: SeaWorld has gone paperless for their maps and showtimes, so make sure to download the official app, SeaWorld Discovery Guide, or use the QR code that is displayed in the park.
SeaWorld Orlando Reopening June 11 2020
Here’s a look at Momma Sasha and baby Spark who was born while the park was closed

Animal Interactions

In all open animal viewing spaces, SeaWorld Orlando has added markings to queues to indicate required distancing.

Certain animal interactions will be modified and only tours allowing for physical distancing will operate.

Some tours and interactions will be restricted to one-party at a time.

Pro-Tip: While some tours and animal interactions are not currently open, SeaWorld Orlando did say that they are actively working to reopen them as they are able to safely do so.
