I have created a simple guide for friends, family and anyone else that would like to visit SeaWorld in Orlando, Florida.
Here is the pricing for the Single Day Park Tickets. I do not use third-party to purchase park tickets. I have heard too many stories about issues people encountered with them.
We chose the Single-Park Ticket + All-Day Dining – Advance Purchase Discount. If you purchase the tickets the day before, you save money. You will also definitely save money on food per person by adding the dining option as the food pricing was quite a bit for a family of 5. So this way you save money per person and they can eat all day.
Here are the small print details which is also located at the link above:
“Adults can redeem 1 entree (excluding Baby Back Ribs), 1 side OR 1 dessert & 1 regular sized non-alcoholic beverage (excluding Naked Juice) & Children (Ages 3-9) can redeem Kids meals each time through the line.”
Note: This all-day dining purchase is only valid for the day that you go.
Upgrades, Rides, Shows & Animal Tours
If you do not want to wait in line for the rides, here is a great upgrade option for you: Signature Show Seating + Quick Queue Unlimited.
Gabe’s favorite as a 5-year-old was definitely Antartica: Empire of the Penguin. This is a must see if you have little children. They will absolutely love it.

Try to see them all if you can, we enjoyed every single show. They were all amazing featuring animals of all different kinds. The shows were definitely our favorite part about visiting SeaWorld Orlando.

Cooking With Pinterest
Sometimes it can be hard to come up with meals after a long hard day at work. I often have cook offs on the week-end just to have meals prepared in advance, but sometimes life does not always go the way you plan and you might find yourself in a pinch.
Pinterest is amazing for meal planning. Sometimes your family might not feel like eating a big meal for dinner. If you happen to be on Pinterest, check out all of the amazing recipes that are out there.
The boys absolutely loved going to the Crayola Experience in Orlando, Florida. There is a lot to do here, but I would have to say the boys absolute favorite, was making their own crayons. The crayon maker even lets you label the crayon whatever you would like.
• Melting the crayons into a mold to create a crayon design was so much fun! They made two sharks and a ring. These crayons also worked well to draw with, just like a regular crayon.
• Melting crayons onto a round disc of paper and watching it splatter to create artwork was definitely a fan favorite.

Maker Faire in Orlando, Florida is located at the Central Florida Fairgrounds. It’s an event where people show what they are making and share what they are learning. We had some friends that attended this event in years past. Now that my youngest son, was a little bit older, we thought that this was the perfect year to attend.
We started the morning off with a LEGO Workshop by iBrick Academy. The focus was on LEGO Education, which is a series our family is very excited about. It does have a common core curriculum, which many parents have different thoughts on. LEGO is a very big part of our life, so we are going to try the Story Starter Curriculum Pack. During the Workshop, they boys worked on math problems. They really enjoyed it! As a lot of Moms’ with boys understand, you will try anything to keep them excited about learning as they get older.
Here is one of iBrick Academy’s Creations.
The Robots were amazing. They came in all different shapes, sizes and colors. My boys love Robots! We have some really cool Maker Projects that we are going to start working on this year. This one is my favorite because they are all so cute!
Each floor has Makers that are exhibiting. So there is a lot to see and activities to participate in. Here is a great video, check it out.
This is a once a year event, every Fall. So you have plenty of time to prepare for your trip to Maker Faire Orlando.
