Seaworld Orlando

Where everyone comes to play

The smile on the face of the kid in the queue next to me says it all. Her anticipation is evident in every word she speaks, every motion she makes, every step she takes closer to the ticket window. We are at SeaWorld Orlando and I am sure I too have that same glint of expectation.

The Orlando theme park, the third for the SeaWorld chain, is located a mere 15 minutes from Orlando International Airport and was right across the road from my accommodation at The Renaissance SeaWorld.
