Boy Bands and Dolphins

Can you believe after living in Central Florida for 10 years, I had never been to SeaWorld? I've enjoyed their water park Aquatica (in my opinion - best water park in Orlando), but had never gone into the actual park. Enter the pre-school pass! We were able to sign up Lil' Miss for a free annual pass which includes admission to both SeaWorld and Aquatica throughout all of 2020. So, naturally we got ourselves annual passes to both parks as well. We haven't been annual pass holders to a theme park since the year of Disney back in 2014 - which was also amazing!

We activated our passes on the perfect day - the weather was sunny and in the low 70's, the Seven Seas Food and Wine Festival was going on, and the concert that evening was Lance Bass, O-Town, Ryan Cabrera, and the remaining member of LFO (tear for Rich and Devin). Luckily, I saw LFO live in high school with all 3 members. But, let's just say my teenage heart was happy to see some nostalgic performances during my first visit to the park.

Hi Lance!

Given that we can come back at any time throughout the year, there is still SO much more to see and experience. But it wouldn't have been a trip to SeaWorld without a visit to the dolphin exhibit. Lil' Miss was all giggles when they swam right up to her and "talked" through the glass. Priceless.

  8. We love going to Sea World down in San Diego! I love all the adorable dolphins and whales. It always makes me want to work with sea animals! :)


  9. That looks like a fun day out! We have a seaworl here in Australia but it's very different - all the animals are rescues that couldn't be released again after being brought back to health. My boys love it there!

    Hope that your week is going well :)

  17. Your pictures are very beautiful and tempt me to visit it. I just have heard about the Se World and I didn’t find it much interesting. But after going through your pictures and your blog, I am definitely going for it. Your pictures are truly very cute. Check out more in
