SeaWorld Orlando may be a great place to visit with families, but did you know it also has a more romantic side? With intimate dining experiences, unique events and quiet attractions built for two, SeaWorld Orlando is the perfect getaway spot for you and your special someone. Here's how to have a perfect Valentine's Day weekend at SeaWorld Orlando.
Romantic Dinner at Sharks Underwater Grill and Bar
The most romantic spot in the park can be found in the signature full-service restaurant Sharks Underwater Grill and Bar. The dining room is surrounded by picture windows into a massive aquarium filled with colorful sea life. The flicker of the light as it passes through the glass dances across the room, creating a warm atmosphere. Valentine's Day weekend features a special Prix-Fixe Menu for $85 per couple on Friday, February 14th through Sunday the 16th. Enjoy a specialty cocktail named "Cupids Kiss," a shared Cheese and Fruit Plate appetizer, and your choice from one of three expertly prepared entrees each: Filet Mignon, Grilled Salmon or Chicken Mushroom. End your romantic meal with a shared Crème Brûlée dessert and chocolate covered strawberries. Priority Seating is available to reserve your table ahead of time.
Get Closer by Getting Up Close with the Animals
Whether it's feeding the dolphins, stingrays and more, taking a special tour where you can pet a penguin or getting a photo with a sea lion, there are over a dozen ways you can get up-close with the animals of SeaWorld Orlando. You can book a special tour, like Penguins Up-Close, where you and your special someone can go backstage to learn more about these fascinating creatures. Or, you can act cool and seem spontaneous by booking a dolphin feeding or grabbing a basket of fish to feed the stingrays in the Key West section of the park when you get there. It's a great way to create a happy memory together.
Try International Fare at the Seven Seas Food Festival
With culinary marketplace booths located throughout the park, the two of you can stroll around sampling cuisines from around the world together. This festival is only open Fridays through Sundays, which is perfect for this Valentine's Day or the weekend! Discover unique Asian, Latin, European, Polynesian and North Atlantic dishes as well as a wide array of wine, specialty cocktails, and local and international craft brews around every turn. What could be better than spending the day sipping and tasting together?
Take in a Live Concert During the Seven Seas Food Festival
One of the best parts of the Seven Seas Food Festival are the free concerts every weekend! You can grab two seats at Bayside Stadium for the Pop 2000 Tour show on Saturday, February 15th, hosted by Lance Bass of *NSYNC with O-Town, Ryan Cabrera, & LFO, or catch Night Ranger on Sunday, February 16th. Both shows start at 6:00 PM and are included in your general theme park admission.
Enjoy a Drink Together at Flamecraft Bar
The new Flamecraft Bar offers scenic patio seating with views overlooking the water, as well as a multitude of premium beverages to enjoy. Pull up a couple of chairs and enjoy the view, and each other's company, as you select from one of 16 featured craft brews, including local Florida favorites, or one of the house wines. Flamecraft Bar also offers frozen beverages and delightfully colorful mixed drinks. Plus, you can share a giant pretzel or an order of loaded nachos while you chat.
Take a Ride in a Romantic Flamingo Paddle Boat
These pink flamingo-shaped paddle boats are perfect for couples, featuring two seats for your own little paddle-boat getaway around SeaWorld Orlando's large central lake. Enjoy a leisurely escape during your 20-minute excursion. Take in the sights and sounds of the area together on your own little love boat. Be sure to grab a photo in your flamingo-shaped paddle boat, so you can remember this moment forever.
