Where can I dine at SeaWorld Orlando?
SeaWorld has 14 places for guests to take advantage of when they get hungry. These places range from casual takeaway eateries to sit-down restaurants. This is your guide to what’s available, when it’s available, and what to expect at SeaWorld Orlando dining locations! We should note that (from personal experience) opening times can vary, and frequently kitchens aren’t firing up until around 11:30 am, which seems to be the reliable opening time for almost everything in the park.
Here is a complete list of restaurants at SeaWorld Orlando. Opening times can vary, as some restaurants may not open on particularly slow days. Those marked with an asterisk* participate in the All-Day Dining Deal.

All-Day Dining Deal
The All-Day Dining Deal is an upgrade to regular park admission. Once every 90 minutes, participants in this program can grab one entree, one side or one dessert, and one regular-sized non-alcoholic beverage from participating restaurants. Children participating in the All-Day Dining Deal are eligible to grab one kid’s meal from participating locations every 90 minutes. That means if you spend 10 hours at SeaWorld (which is easier than it sounds) and get every meal you are eligible for, they will run you only about $7.50 each if you’re an adult, and kids can eat for $3.80 a meal. You read that right – it’s a fantastic deal if you and your family bring an appetite.

After dinner, you and your family can see (first-hand) the relationships between SeaWorld animal caregivers and these powerful animals.
