While we were in Florida for Thanksgiving, we headed to Orlando to go to Sea World and meet up with my sister-in-law, who I haven’t seen since Piglet was a month old. Sea World is still honoring military members so our tickets were free – which was a huge driving force is having us go. Hubs’ sister lives in Orlando and we wanted to see her but we didn’t want to drive over an hour just for lunch so this was perfect.
We went the Wednesday before Thanksgiving and we were pretty shocked to see everything decked out for Christmas already. Being 80 degrees and listening to Christmas music was wild but it made for a great day. The day was overcast and not too hot, it did drizzle a little bit in the afternoon which was nice because it never rains in Colorado so it was a nice change of pace.
Sea World has gotten a bad rap lately but we enjoyed ourselves. During the dolphin show, the hosts were super into telling us all about the conservation efforts that Sea World does and basically sounded like they were saying “please don’t believe that documentary, we’re nice, we swear!” I don’t know. It’s kind of like zoos, are they good or are they hurting people? Part of their profits do go to conservation efforts so it’s whatever. The kids had fun.
The best part of the park is the little kid section where all the kids could ride everything. After our trip to Santa’s Workshop, it was clear that we had to ride everything. And we did. The kids had so much fun doing everything. I am glad because I also love riding rides. Hubs does not so it’s nice that he will wait with the baby and I can get my ride on. I mean the kids. 😛
Since we were with another adult, we were able to get a group photo which was nice and we got a few good ones. Blueberry is all about that shaka life and Hubs’ sister – who has never been to Hawaii – said “she kept doing this weird hand thing, I hope it’s okay.” LOL #shakaforlife
Have you been to Sea World Orlando? Or maybe one of the others? How do you feel about them?
