The Ins and Outs of All-Day Dining at SeaWorld Orlando

by Mommy Frog on December 27, 2023
44 Orlando

All-Day Dining - PinterestThe cost of meals during a full day at a theme park can add up — especially for a family. That's why we love SeaWorld Orlando's All-Day Dining deal. This deal not only keeps our tummies full but our wallets, as well! Curious to know what it entails? Keep reading to find out everything you need to know about this convenient upgrade.

Everything You Need to Know About All-Day Dining

What is All-Day Dining?

For one low price, any member of your frog squad can eat and drink as often as once every 90 minutes at participating restaurants. That means adults can order an entree, a soft beverage or iced tea — and one side or dessert and tadpoles (ages 3 to 9) can order a Kids' Meal — every hour and a half! All-Day Dining isn't valid with any souvenir products (with the exception of Kids' Meals) or alcoholic beverages. Additionally, sharing (with the exception of tadpoles 2 and under) and take-out are both prohibited. All you need to do is show your wristband to the cashier and have them scan it!

Which Restaurants Accept All-Day Dining?

Participating locations include:

All-Day Dining - Dockside Pizza Co

  • Voyager's Smokehouse
  • Expedition Café
  • Captain Pete's Island Eats
  • Seafire Grill
  • Lakeside Grill
  • Altitude Burgers
  • Panini Bistro
  • Waterway Grill
  • Dockside Pizza Co.

All-Day Dining does not include extra-cost dining experiences, such as character dining, Dine with Orcas or Sharks Underwater Grill.

How Much Is It?

All-Day Dining - QR Code

Save some green with Undercover Tourist! We offer an adult All-Day Dining deal for $42.59 and a tadpole All-Day Dining deal (for kids 3 to 9) for $21.29 if you'd like to add it on. Or, you can purchase a ticket with All-Day Dining already included! (That being said, if you decide once you're at the park that you want to go ahead and purchase it, you can still do that!) To receive your wristband, take your E-Ticket to one of the convenient Self-Service Kiosks located at the front of the park, any of the participating restaurants or Guest Services just beyond the turnstiles. Be sure to leave your wristband on your wrist all day as a lost wristband won't be replaced and a broken wristband won't be accepted. If you solely purchase All-Day Dining as an add-on, note that valid park admission is also required.

Do Other SeaWorld Parks Offer All-Day Dining?

Yes, they do! Aquatica Orlando and Busch Gardens Tampa Bay also offer All-Day Dining. On our tickets page, you'll find both Single-Day tickets and Multi-Park Combo tickets that include it!

Participating restaurants at Aquatica include:

  • Mango Market
  • Waterstone Grill
  • Banana Beach Cookout (open seasonally)
  • Kura's Beachside Panini (open seasonally)
  • Walkabout Pizza (open seasonally)

Participating restaurants at Busch Gardens include:

  • Oasis Pizza
  • Dragon Fire Grill & Pub
  • Chick-fil-A
  • Zambia Smokehouse
  • Zagora Café

Participating restaurants at Adventure Island include:

  • Surfside Cafe
  • Mango Joe's Café
  • Colossal Snacks

Is All-Day Dining Worth It?

All-Day Dining - Meatball Sub

If you plan on sitting down and eating more than one meal while you're at SeaWorld for the day, it pays for itself! From the Mediterranean-inspired cuisine at Lakeside Grill and Amazon flavors at Waterway Grill to the classic American Bar-B-Que at Voyager's Smokehouse and Nathan's Famous dogs at Captain Pete's, there's truly something for every froggy palette. On our last trip, just some of the items we indulged in were the cheese pizza and fresh fruit at Expedition Café and the hand-breaded chicken tenders and chocolate chip cookies at Seafire Grill.

The one caveat is that event booths aren't included, so if you're going to be at SeaWorld during the Seven Seas Food Festival or Christmas Celebration and solely plan to fill up on festival food, then the All-Day Dining Deal isn't necessary. However, if you just want to snack at the booths on top of having full meals at the restaurants, then definitely go for it!

Any Other Tips?

If you have food allergies, request to speak with a supervisor at any restaurant to give them the details about your allergens. They'll be hoppy to make sure your meal is free from any cross-contamination.

All-Day Dining - Expedition Cafe

Another hop tip is to plan the order of the restaurants you'll visit based on their proximity to other park rides and attractions you plan to hit up. On our last trip, we had lunch at Expedition Café after plunging down on Journey to Atlantis and before cooling down at Antarctica: Empire of the Penguin. (It was a whopping 93 degrees that day!) We then grabbed dinner at Seafire Grill after conquering Ice Breaker and before heading out for the day.

Is all day Dining good for all year around ? Or just for 1 visit? I bought it with my season pass and it says it expires 5/28/2025.

Hi Jacqueline!

The All-Day Dining Deal is only valid for one day (though it expires one full year from purchase date), so you would need to purchase it again for every visit that you wish to use it.

What hours are the All Day Dining restaurants available from? What is the latest you eat? We did this back in October when parks aren't open as long so restaurants close sooner but do they still close early in summer??

Hi Emma!

Exact hours may depend on the individual restaurant. You can check hours by using the SeaWorld app and going to mobile order (if you pretend to start an order, you can "schedule my order" and look at the "later" timeframes available). The following examples correlate to today's park hours (park closes at 7 p.m.). There are some locations that may close early (such as Waterway Grill, which shows 5 p.m. as the last time), while others have available pick up times until park close (Captain Pete's Island Hot Dogs, which is closer to the front of the park).

Scanning from the phone should be OK! We'd recommend taking a screenshot of it as well in case Wi-Fi is an issue.

What is an entree? Does this include like a main meal i.e Pizza etc?

FrogBlog Says...

Hi James!

Yes, the entree is the main dish of the meal, such as hamburgers, chicken tenders or pizza. When looking at SeaWorld's website, you can view the menus of each restaurant, and they are divided into sections by entree, side, dessert and beverages so you can see exactly what is offered.

Hoppy planning!

Hello,

I was reading that breakfast is included until 11:00 am with the all day dining. The website says that it is available at the Panini Shore Grill. But I have been told by others that it is actually at Seafire Grill. Do you have any information on this?

Thank you very much.

FrogBlog Says...

Hi Adam!

Are you referring to the All-Day Dining Deal? If so, essentially how the deal works is you wear a wristband that the cashier scans at checkout. You're entitled to an entree, drink and a side or dessert every 90 minutes once you scan your wristband. You can get one item (in your case, a drink) or an entire meal, but it doesn't matter how many items you get — the scan restarts the next 90 minutes. There is also an option (totally separate from All-Day Dining) to get a refillable souvenir cup. Once you purchase the cup, you get free refills for the rest of the purchase date. They do not have a time restriction, and if you bring it back for future visits, you can purchase more refills at a low price.

Hello

Is it possible to split your meal times rather than it all being 90 minutes apart? So for instance, if you have an entree and drink then can you stop 30 minutes later for a desert somewhere? And if so, does the 90 minutes then kick in from the time of your desert rather than when you had your entree? I hope this question makes sense ... we are a family of grazers!!!!! :)

Thanks

Hi Michelle!

For the All-Day Dining Plan, you receive a wristband with a barcode, and every time you redeem meal (or an individual food or drink item) using the wristband, you'd need to wait the 90 minutes. You don't need to redeem an entire meal every 90 minutes, but the 90-minute wait period is not dependent on the type of item you get if you don't get the full meal.

Hi Lauren!

The All-Day Dining Deal is only valid at the following restaurants: Voyager's Smokehouse, Expedition Café, Captain Pete's Island Hot Dogs, Seafire Grill, Lakeside Grill, Altitude Burger, Panini Shore Café and Waterway Grill. It does exclude the festival kiosks during special events, including the Christmas Celebration.

Hello! I have All Day Dining and it says for "Seaworld or Aquatica", I understand they can be used in either park, BUT is it only one or the other? Or if we're splitting our time between both parks that day, can we use the dining in both parks on the same day? Like say we did B/L in one park, and dinner in the other, would that work?

The All-Day Dining Deal would only be valid at one park (whichever one you use it at first).

We want to get the 2 day park ticket. would the dine all day price cover the 2 days? they don't seem to have a two day option for the dine all day, but if I add it to cart does that cover both days or do I have to double the number of dine all days to the cart?

Hi Karen!

The All-Day Dining Deal ticket only covers one day, so if you'd like it for both days, you should purchase two All-Day Dining Deal tickets.

We don't offer the All-Day Dining Deal separately for Busch Gardens Tampa (though as you mentioned, we do for SeaWorld Orlando), but you can purchase it in advance directly from Busch Gardens' website.

Hi Rosie!

The All-Day Dining Plan does not allow you to skip lines. If you do not have the plan, you can mobile order food through the SeaWorld app, which could help with avoiding long lines. However, you cannot apply the plan through mobile ordering, as you need to show your wristband at the register.

Where is the best dessert?

Anywhere to get a frozen dessert with the plan?

FrogBlog Says...

Hi John!

Edy's Ice Cream Parlor will be your best bet for frozen desserts, such as ice cream, milkshakes and sundaes. Unfortunately, it's not an All-Day Dining location. The All-Day Dining locations will mainly have slices of cakes and cheesecake, with the occasional cookies and pudding parfaits (depending on the restaurant). Other alternative locations (though not a part of the dining plan) would be Coaster Coffee Company and any food booths during special events (such as Seven Seas Food Festival or Christmas Celebration). If you decide against the dining plan, we'd highly recommend getting and sharing a sample lanyard for the festivals as a way to save money if you're visiting when one is going on.

Hi Craig!

Yes & no — with the dining plan, you could grab a side or dessert as a snack every 90 minutes at any of the restaurants that accepts the dining plan. This could include food items such as fries, cookies or fresh fruit, depending on the location. But if you're looking to snack at food locations that don't accept the dining plan (event food booths or other spots such as Edy's Ice Cream Parlor), then it would not be included.

Hi Tina!

It depends — for special dining experiences, such as Dine with Orcas, you will need a reservation. But most restaurants at SeaWorld are quick-service so you wouldn't need any reservations (or you can make same-day reservations starting at 11 a.m. at Sharks Underwater Grill & Bar, which is a full-service restaurant).

Do the all day dining plan have to be eaten in the restaurant or can I walk out with the food

Reply

FrogBlog Says...

Hi Kevin!

Most of the participating restaurants are quick-service, so in theory, we think you should be able to take your food with you if you want to eat elsewhere in the park. You may need to leave the trays behind. However, we did notice in the fine print that it says "sharing (with the exception of children 2 and under) and take out is prohibited" but we would think this mainly prevents people from just grabbing meals to go and leaving the park with them.

Hoppy planning!
