I've spent alot of time today researching Sea World vacation packages. It's so close and so cheap... I just want to take the kids somewhere this summer. Just for a couple of days. The 4 of us can go on a Sea World vacation for about $600. And that's park passes, hotel, multiple "extras" at the parks. It doesn't include food or gas $ for the trip there and back, but that's all it doesn't include. Even then, some of the "extras" I would include are things like going behind the scenes at the Beluga Whale exhibit and those things include lunch.
They aren't doing the Dinner with Shamu thing I took Trenton to 3 years ago. It was neat. In the backstage pool, they had a buffet set up and then as you sat and ate, the whales performed about 4 feet from your table. It was a small group so it wasn't crowded and it was quiet. Very cool.
This is the only picture I could find, but it'll work. It's not zoomed in at all. That whale was seriously right next to our table. It looks like they do the same thing with the Beluga whales now and you can even get in the tank with them... so maybe we'll do that. Or at least let Trenton do that. :)
