The 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:
- Voyager's Smokehouse
- Expedition Café
- Captain Pete's Island Eats
- Seafire Grill
- Lakeside Grill
- Altitude Burgers
- Panini Bistro
- Waterway Grill
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?
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. (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. Of course, this might go without saying, but theme park admission is required but not included.
Do Other SeaWorld Parks Offer All-Day Dining?

Is All-Day Dining Worth It?
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.
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.
