SeaWorld All-Day Dining: Everything You Need To Know

SeaWorld All-Day Dining is such a great way to enjoy the restaurants and snacks at SeaWorld for a fraction of the price. It’s definitely worth adding on to your trip. But, before you do, get all your questions about All-Day Dining in this post.

My parents go to SeaWorld every year for New Year’s Eve. Their favorite part is adding on the All-Day Dining and eating for the entire day. For a flat-rate ($49.99 for adults, $24.99 for kids in 2024), you can eat once every 90 minutes you’re at the park.

It sounded like a lot of fun.

So when I went to Florida in 2019, we went to SeaWorld. So I had to try SeaWorld’s All-Day Dining to see what it was all about. Spoiler alert: It was awesome.

There are a few things you need to know about All-Day Dining in order to get the best value out of it. So, we put together this post to answer any questions you might have.

This post is based on our personal experience at SeaWorld Orlando. The experience may be different at the other SeaWorld locations (SeaWorld San Diego and SeaWorld San Antonio).

How much is All-Day Dining at SeaWorld?

It’s $49.99 for adults and $24.99 for kids (ages 3 to 9). That’s in addition to your SeaWorld ticket.

You can purchase SeaWorld admission tickets here and then add on All-Day Dining.

Is there a SeaWorld All-Day Dining deal coupon?

You can sometimes find a SeaWorld All-Day Dining Deal.

In the past, SeaWorld has offered $5 off All-Day Dining. It has also had a buy three, get one free deal, which made the All-Day Dining pass only $29.99 a person. You can sometimes save a little money when you bundle the park ticket and All-Day Dining together. Before you go to the park, check out SeaWorld’s website to see if there are any deals going on.

You can also check out Groupon, which often has discounts on SeaWorld tickets.

Do you need to purchase an All-Day Dining Pass ahead of time?

No, you don’t have to order an All-Day Dining Pass before you go to the park.

If you want, you can order it online at before the date of your visit. If you do that, you can get a discounted online price. But, you can also purchase All-Day Dining after you enter the park either via the SeaWorld app or at a kiosk at the park.

If you want to add it on in the middle of the day, you can do that too. You can add it at a specific kiosk in the park or at any participating restaurant.

How does SeaWorld’s All-Day Dining work?

When you purchase your All-Day Dining pass online, you get a voucher. At the first restaurant you go to, you will turn in that voucher at the restaurant’s register and you’ll get a bracelet with a barcode. Each time you redeem your All-Day Dining, that barcode will be scanned.

If you have a child who also has a pass and doesn’t want to wear the wristband, or if your child has sensory sensitivity and cannot wear it, you can wear the wristband for them. Just be sure to keep track of which wristband is your child’s because different kids get kids meals while adults get an adult meal, so you want to make sure the correct wristband is scanned at checkout.

How often can you eat with SeaWorld All-Day Dining?

You can eat once every 90 minutes at SeaWorld. This is a change. It used to be every 60 minutes.

This is 90 minutes from when you last used the barcode, not every 90 clock minutes. So if you get a meal at 2 pm, you have to wait until 3:30 pm to eat again.

What is included in SeaWorld All-Day Dining?

With SeaWorld All-Day Dining, adults can get a regular sized non-alcoholic fountain drink (a bottle of water is currently excluded, although it was available previously) and an entrée, plus a side or dessert every 90 minutes. Children (3 to 9) can get a kids meal every 90 minutes.

Each restaurant has a sign listing the SeaWorld All-Day Dining menu for adults and the kid’s meal entrees. You don’t get to choose off the full menu, but you do get to choose from the majority of it.

Is beer included in SeaWorld’s All-Day Dining pass?

Alcohol is not included in the general All-Day Dining pass. You used to be able to add on an All-Day Drinking pass, but that hasn’t been available since 2022.

In case it comes back, here are what the details were: Beer at SeaWorld Orlando is $10.99 for a regular beer and $11.99 for a craft beer. An All-Day Drinking pass was $15, so the pass was a great deal. You could purchase an All-Day Drinking pass without purchasing an All-Day Dining pass.

A SeaWorld All-Day Drinking pass allowed you to get one beer, every hour at SeaWorld Orlando.

Was All-Day Drinking at SeaWorld worth it?

Past tense because, like I said, this hasn’t been offered for a few years. But, I don’t drink alcohol. So for me, it wasn’t worth it to add on the All-Day Drinking pass. But, if you drank alcohol, and you had at least two beers during your time at the park, it was absolutely worth it.

Two beers would have cost about $22, and the All-Day Drinking pass was only $15, so you’re already saving money.

Do you need to eat everything at once?

No. You can redeem just your entrée at one restaurant and then get a side at another. Or just stop in for dessert. You don’t need to get a meal every redemption. We did, but you don’t have to.

If you want to, you can just redeem your drink. That’s what my parents usually do because it gets hot in Orlando and it’s nice to get a drink every redemption to stay hydrated.

When I went in 2019, we ate a full meal every redemption and there were still things I wanted to try that we ran out of time to eat.

A muffin, fruit, and coffee in SeaWorld Orlando.

Can you get breakfast?

Yes. At SeaWorld Orlando, Seafire Grill has a continental breakfast from when the park opens until 11 am. You can get muffins, a fruit cup, and coffee (milk or fountain drinks are also included).

Can you eat at all the SeaWorld restaurants?

You can’t. The Up Close Dining with Shamu and the very popular Sharks Underwater Grill are two of the restaurants that aren’t included in SeaWorld Orlando’s All-Day Dining.

On the SeaWorld app, you can go under “Dining”, click on a restaurant, and there will be an “All-Day Dining Deal” icon in the upper right corner so you can tell exactly what restaurants are currently participating. You can also find the restaurant locations on the park map in the app.

There are eight total participating SeaWorld All-Day Dining restaurants in 2024: Altitude Burger, Captain Pete’s Island Hot Dogs, Expedition Café, Lakeside Grill, Panini Shore Cafe, Seafire Grill, Voyager’s Smokehouse, and Waterway Grill.

The Food Trucks in Sesame Street Land do not say that are participating in the app, but appear to be participating at the park.

Restaurants which used to participate in SeaWorld All-Day Dining, but don’t in 2024, are: Flamecraft Bar and Mama’s Pretzel Kitchen.

What’s the best food at SeaWorld Orlando?

Our favorite of restaurants at SeaWorld Orlando was Voyager’s Smokehouse. The brisket sampler (which came with brisket, sausage, 1/4 chicken, and fries — just as the entrée!) was amazing.

We had it for dinner, but if I knew how good it was, I would have eaten it every redemption.

We also really loved the pretzel dog at Mama’s Pretzel Kitchen. It’s a Nathan’s Hot Dog, which is actually my favorite kind, so that was delicious. My aunt said she had always dreamed of eating a pretzel dog, so this meal was literally a dream come true for her.

This was actually the only place where I saw Powerade as a fountain drink, so it’s a bummer that the restaurant doesn’t participate anymore. Mama’s Pretzel Kitchen is under new ownership, so that’s why there was a change.

What is the worst restaurant at SeaWorld Orlando?

This is my blog, so I’m allowed to be honest.

If I was going back to SeaWorld again, I would skip the Expedition Café. We liked that it was in Antarctica and near Antarctica: Emperor Of The Penguin, which was the favorite ride of the day for my cousin’s kids.

But the food at the cafe was just okay. I wasn’t crazy about my Chicken Teriyaki, my cousin didn’t love her pizza, and my mom’s orange chicken wasn’t that great.

With so many options and a limited number of options, I wouldn’t go back for this.

Are there healthy options on the SeaWorld dining plan?

Well, there used to be. At Mango Joe’s, there was a serve your own salad option with four to choose from: caprese salad, Caesar salad, summer salad, and a kale salad. And that kale salad was amazing.

But Mango Joe’s is now Altitude Burgers and there are no more salads on the menu. There is fresh fruit as an option of a side, which was the option at most restaurants, so at least there’s that. Waterway Grill does have an Amazon Salad.

Does SeaWorld All-Day Dining have vegan options?

In 2019, SeaWorld announced that a few of the restaurants serve the Impossible Burger. That’s a plant-based burger that’s so good. We’ve had them before, and I loved it. Unfortunately, I can’t find the Impossible Burger on any of the menus online anymore, so it seems the partnership is over.

The only vegetarian menu items I can find on all-day dining are the Seared Tuna entrée at Waterway Grill, a cheese pizza at Altitude Burgers, and Vegetable Stir Fry at Expedition Café.

Are the SeaWorld All-Day Dining kids meals different than the adult meals?

They are. Each restaurant has a separate kids menu and kids can only order off of that. You’ll see it posted in each restaurant.

For an example: At the food trucks in Sesame Street Land, the kids meal is a half grilled cheese while the adults meal is a full grilled cheese. My mom got a tasty Veggie Grilled Cheese sandwich at the Yummy Yummy Nom Noms truck there.

Just for a little more clarity: The kids plan is the same as the adult plan as far as how often you can eat. So kids can get one drink and one entree PLUS either a side or a dessert every 90 minutes. Each child will get his/her own wristband. When the wristband is scanned at checkout, the register will know it is a child’s band and will, therefore, only allow you to get a kids meal.

Can you share SeaWorld All-Day Dining?

No, you can’t. So if you’re traveling with another adult, or with a child ages 3 to 9, you need to purchase a separate dining plan for that person.

The only exception is you can share your entree with children ages 2 and under.

The Spice Mill restaurant in SeaWorld Orlando.

Can you take any of the food to go?

You don’t have to sit inside the restaurant to eat. The Spice Mill (which is now the Lakeside Grill) had a lot of seats inside, but we took our turkey sandwiches to the small tables outside to eat. It was a beautiful day when we were there, and we wanted to enjoy the sunshine outdoors.

Captain Pete's Hot Dogs and the Stingray Lagoon in SeaWorld Orlando.

If you mean to go after you leave the park, it’s not that easy. None of the cups have lids or straws for the safety of the animals. And most of the meals are served on plates, not in to go containers.

No one is going to stop you if you try to leave the park with cookies or a bag of chips, but you can’t really walk out of SeaWorld with a hot dog from Captain Pete’s Hot Dogs. Instead, just feed yourself a hot dog then walk over to feed the stingrays. They’re right next to each other, so that’s perfect.

Are holiday treats included?

Someone asked this in a comment, so I had to include this.

The holiday treats, like the flavored hot chocolate stand, aren’t included in the All-Day Dining plan. It’s the same restaurants/menu for the Christmas/holiday season as it is during the rest of the year.

Is All-Day Dining at SeaWorld worth it?

All-Day Dining at SeaWorld is worth every penny. I probably drank my cost just in bottled water. So, even though bottled water isn’t a drink option anymore, I still think All-Day Dining is a good value.

When we ate at Voyager’s Smokehouse, my total would have been just over $24. When you think about that, an extra $16 got me meals for the rest of the day. That’s an amazing deal.

So if you’re planning on having more than one meal during your day at SeaWorld, the All-Day Dining pass will pay for itself.

Plus, SeaWorld doesn’t allow any outside food, beverages, or coolers inside the park. The only exception is a bottle of water or a reusable water bottle. So, if you pack your own lunch in order to be frugal, you’ll need to leave the park in order to eat it, losing out on valuable park time.

Hi! I will be visiting Sea World Orlando in June 2023. Do you know if we can pre-order food via the app if you have the all day dining plan? (Just trying to avoid spending extra time as I’ve heard the lines can be long). Also, are you allowed to order food for others while others queu in line for attractions? For example, we are a party of 3 and we will be buying 3 dining plans. However, if the wristband is removable, can I order food for my husband while he rides a rollercoaster with our daughter? Or does each person have to be physically there to get the food?

Hope this makes sense!

When we were there last, mobile ordering wasn't available so I'm not sure if you can pre-order food via the app. I'll have to look into that and see if I can find the answer. For your other question, you cannot order food for another adult. The wristband must be scanned at checkout, which means your husband has to be there to have his wristband scanned. It's not removable. They did allow my cousin to wear a wristband for her son (who has sensory sensitivity and wasn't able to wear the wristband himself).

We are coming from the UK in Sept and want to do the all day dining. Do we have to wait until we are there to purchase it or could I buy it now and use it when we come. We are trying to plan and would prefer to get it so we know that's one less thing to worry about

Many thanks

You can purchase it ahead of time. You'll get a printout with your All Day Dining Pass on it. Redeem it at the first restaurant where you dine and they'll give you your wristband. You can also purchase your admission tickets online ahead of time as well.

I bought all day dining tickets for sea world san antonio. However, I want to upgrade to all day dining for both sea world and aquatica now. Do you know how can I do that? Thank you!

When you get to one of the parks, there should be a kiosk where you can upgrade your ticket to a dining pass for both. I would call SeaWorld San Antonio to make sure (because I've only been to the Orlando park, but I remember seeing a kiosk there).

Thanks for the article! I will be there in a few days and i have to young kids so my thoughts are to purchase one dining plan and let them share the meals. I may do the same for me and my husband. Purchase one adult plan. let one adult use the meal plan and the other adult can order what they want but then we can share snacks and drinks and extra meals throughout the day.

We did the all day dining pass and it was great. If we didn't have it, we wouldn't of ate like we did! We were allowed to get bottled soda (we didn't realize this until the end of the day) but that was great to be able to close up & put in the stroller. I think next time we will do it again!
