Being a SeaWorld Annual Pass Member has its benefits. Not only do you get to go anytime you like, SeaWorld makes sure its Annual Pass Members feel like VIPs.
SeaWorld Orlando is one of the few aquatic theme parks left in the nation that can be enjoyed as a half-day or whole-day park, depending on your goals for that day.
However, it is quickly becoming a park that may need a whole day to conquer.
As a SeaWorld Annual Pass Member, take your time exploring the park and learning about the many different animals and variety of attractions throughout the year of your membership.
Whether you have your annual pass or are looking for answers to why you should get one, here are the top SeaWorld Annual Pass Benefits for 2019.
