How to get this great deal:

  1. Decide if you want to add a year of admission to Aquatica (SeaWorld’s Waterpark) for $59.99.
  2. Click here to register online
    Be sure to register before you go to the park, this deal is NOT available at the ticket window!
  3. Plan your visit to SeaWorld Orlando before December 31, 2018. Unlike previous years, the voucher can be redeemed anytime in 2018!
  4. Be sure to take with you: your registration confirmation, child’s birth certificate or travel passport, AND your Florida resident ID. Present them at a ticket window to receive Preschool Card.
    (From what we could tell on the website, any grandparent, guardian, or relative with access to the child’s birth certificate or passport can register and redeem this deal)

Valid for Florida Residents only. Note that ages 2 & under receive free admission to the park daily and do not need a Preschool Pass.

Wondering about the cost of tickets for the rest of your family?

There are three options:

  • Single Day Tickets – you can always go for just one day BUT for the same price or just a few dollars more you get a FunCard that is valid for the entire year!
  • Fun Cards are valid for the remainder of 2018 with no blackout dates. They only include park admission, and do NOT include Free Parking. {Parking is $20 per visit.}
  • Annual Passes get you 12 months of admission from the date of purchase, PLUS free parking (value of $20/visit), discounts, monthly specials, discount on guest tickets, etc.

Click any of the ticket prices below to purchase your tickets and avoid waiting at the ticket windows. Note that there are a LOT of options on the SeaWorld website – these links should take you directly to the Florida Resident pages and Annual pass deals and save you time spent searching for the right tickets!

BOTH SeaWorld and Busch Gardens

SeaWorld Florida Teacher Card: Teachers get FREE admission to SeaWorld® Orlando – click here for your FREE ticket!

Active Duty Military Promotion: One complimentary admission per year for military personnel and as many as three direct dependents. Click here for tickets.

(In previous years, Busch Gardens Tampa has also offered a Preschool Pass. We haven’t seen this deal for 2018 but will update the post if one is offered!)

We took advantage of this deal three years ago, and my advice is to purchase 1 annual pass to get the free parking benefit, and then get FunCards for everyone else.

Whether you want one park or multiple is up to you.

Now get out there and have some theme park fun!!

      Unfortunately, Busch Gardens is not offering a preschool pass this year. (We confirmed this with their media relations department)
