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

by Mommy Frog on July 11, 2022 14 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 - Seafire Grill

  • 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?

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. (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?

Yes, they do! Aquatica Orlando, Busch Gardens Tampa Bay and Adventure Island 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)

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 - Lunch

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.

Where is the best dessert?

Anywhere to get a frozen dessert with the plan?

Mar 27, 2023 at 11:32 a.m. 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.

Hoppy planning!

Are some type of snacks included?

Feb 6, 2023 at 2:24 p.m. FrogBlog Says...

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.

Is the all day dining price for children now the same as for adults? I cannot seem to find the plan for the price stated above.

Jan 6, 2023 at 9:08 a.m. FrogBlog Says...

Hi Joanna!

You can find the All-Day Dining pricing details here! Currently, it's $42.59 per adult and $21.29 per child (3-9).

Do we have to make reservations at the sit down restaurants

Dec 29, 2022 at 8:19 a.m. FrogBlog Says...

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).

Is hot cocoa included in the all day dining? If so, how often can you get it?

Nov 21, 2022 at 11:58 a.m. FrogBlog Says...

Hi Jenny!

The refillable hot cocoa from the Christmas Celebration booths is not included with the All-Day Dining deal.

Can I make orders via the mobile phone using all day dinning? Thanks.

Nov 21, 2022 at 12:24 p.m. FrogBlog Says...

Hi Kevin!

When using the All-Day Dining deal, you're given a wristband and the cashier needs to scan it, so you would need to order in person.

Hoppy planning!

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

Aug 4, 2022 at 3:51 p.m. 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!
