SeaWorld All Day Dining: Everything You Need To Know (2022 Update)

This SeaWorld All Day Dining: Everything You Need To Know post is sponsored and based on SeaWorld Orlando and is updated for 2022.

My parents go to SeaWorld every year for New Year’s Eve. They say the best part is adding on the All Day Dining. For a flat-rate ($44.99 for adults, $22.99 for kids in 2022), you can eat once per hour, every hour you’re at the park.

It sounded like a lot of fun.

So when we went to Florida in 2019, we went to SeaWorld. So I had to try out the All Day Dining. It was awesome.

SeaWorld All Day Dining: Everything You Need To Know

This is specifically based on our trip to SeaWorld Orlando. Prices and offers are subject to change, so be sure to check the SeaWorld location you’re going to for the most up to date info.

How much is All Day Dining at SeaWorld?

It’s $44.99 for adults and $22.99 for kids (ages 3 to 9). That’s in addition to your SeaWorld ticket.

Purchase SeaWorld admission tickets here.

Is there a SeaWorld All Day Dining deal coupon?

Sometimes.

SeaWorld was offering a limited-time deal where you could get $5 off All Day Dining. In December 2020, at SeaWorld Orlando there was 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.

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. You can order it online at SeaWorld.com if that’s easier for you or you purchase it 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.

What do you get with SeaWorld’s All Day Dining?

I’m talking physically what do you get here.

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 if your child 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 meals are available for kids, so you want to make sure the correct wristband is scanned.

Also, speaking of sensory sensitivity, here’s a small aside: SeaWorld is a Certified Autism Center and staff are trained accordingly in topics such as sensory awareness, autism overview, and more.

In fact, the SeaWorld Orlando has a quiet room located in Sesame Street Land, and another near the Information and Reservations Counter, filled with sensory boards, cozy seating, and more. Groups are only allowed in one per time, so you’ll have a personal setting for your child(ren).

SeaWorld Orlando also has a Ride Accessibility Program to allow special access to rides for guests who cannot wait in line due to his or her needs.

How often can you eat with SeaWorld All Day Dining?

You can eat once an hour, every hour at SeaWorld Orlando and SeaWorld San Diego. At SeaWorld San Antonio, you can eat once every 90 minutes.

It’s not done every clock hour, but every 60 minutes from when you used the barcode last. So if you get a meal at 2:15pm, you have to wait until 3:15pm to eat again.

What is included in SeaWorld All Day Dining?

With SeaWorld All Day Dining, you can get a regular sized non-alcoholic drink (including bottled water and soda) and an entrée, plus a side or dessert every hour (or 90 minutes).

Each restaurant has a sign delineating the SeaWorld All Day Dining menu. 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 is not available as of 2022.

But, 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.

You could purchase an All Day Drinking pass without purchasing an All Day Dining pass.

A SeaWorld All Day Drinking pass allows you to get one beer, every hour. That’s at SeaWorld Orlando. I assume it is once every 90 minutes at SeaWorld San Antonio, but I cannot find that info online.

Is All Day Drinking at SeaWorld worth it?

I don’t drink. So for me, it wouldn’t be worth it to add on the All Day Drinking pass. But, if you do drink, and you have at least two beers during your time at the park, it’s absolutely worth it.

Two beers would cost you about $22, and the All Day Drinking pass is only $15, so you’re already saving $7.

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 hour. 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 bottle of water every hour to stay hydrated.

When I went last summer, we ate a meal every hour and there were still things I wanted to try that we ran out of time to eat.

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 is one of the restaurants that isn’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.

There are eight total participating SeaWorld All Day Dining restaurants in 2022: Altitude Burger, Captain Pete’s Island Hot Dogs, Expedition Café, Lakeside Grill*, Lakeside Panini Bistro*, Seafire Grill, Voyager’s Smokehouse, and Waterway Grill.

Note: Lakeside Grill and Lakeside Panini Bistro are included in the fine print on the app, as is Mama’s Pretzel Kitchen. The “All-Day Dining Deal” icon does not appear the app for these locations.

We confirmed that Mama’s Pretzel Kitchen is not participating.

Restaurants which used to participate in SeaWorld All Day Dining, but don’t in 2022, are: Flamecraft Bar and Mama’s Pretzel Kitchen.

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

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 hour.

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.

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. (You can see more here.)

I can’t find the Impossible Burger on any of the menus online anymore, so it seems the partnership is over.

The only vegetarian entrées 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 per hour. 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.

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, 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.

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.

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!

Great post! Thanks! As you indicated your parents go at New Year’s each year, I was wondering if the Special Christmas Holiday treats are included with the All Day Dining Plan?

Hi Johnny. 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.

My family is heading to SeaWorld in October. I'd like to get the dining plan, but can you help me understand the kid's plan better? Can they only order a kids meal? Does a dessert come with their plan?

drugstore diva lisa

Monday 23rd of September 2019

Hi Jamia.

There's a separate kids menu, and the kids can only order off of that. It's 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 per hour. Each child will get his/her own wristband (but an adult can wear it for the child). 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. So no one can scam the system by ordering an adult meal but only paying for the kids plan.

Does that clear it up?
