Did you know that Sea World offers an amazing military discount?

If you are active duty or a veteran, there is some type of discount that you qualify for.

Sea World Military Discount for Active Duty

The discount for active duty is substantial because they let in the active duty member and 3 dependents in for free. That’s right, it is completely free! We actually went to Sea World yesterday and they let our family of 5 in for free. All we had to do was show my husbands active duty id card and my spouses id card. We had expected to have to pay for one of our kids to get in, but they let all three in.

  • If you are active duty and have more than 3 dependents like we do, I recommend not getting any tickets until you’ve gone to the gate! Wait and see if they go ahead and make an exception like they did for us!
  • Inactive, standby and retired reserve members, military retirees, U.S. Merchant Marine and civilian Department of Defense workers are ineligible for the program.

Remember, if you use your free tickets at Sea World Orlando, then you cannot use them at Busch Gardens, Adventure Island, Water Country USA, or Sesame Place or Aquatica SeaWorld’s Waterpark in San Diego.

If you want to go to Aquatica and Sea World while you are in Orlando I recommend using your free tickets at Aquatica and instead buying the half price tickets for veterans at Sea World.

  • Before making a final decision find out what the military pricing is on both parks and go for whatever is cheapest at that time of year. For example, yesterday we could have gotten into Aquatica for $36, which would be cheaper than half price Sea World tickets.
  • If you are going to Discovery Cove then you already have 14 days of unlimited admission to Sea World and Aquatica so you should save your freebie tickets for Busch Gardens in Tampa.

Sea World OrlandoSea World Military Discount for Veterans

Veterans and Active Military members can receive a 50% discount on a SeaWorld Orlando Fun Card. Each qualified service person can purchase up to 5 Fun Cards.

  • This offer is available to veterans and military members from U.S. only.
  • This offer is available exclusively online or at participating military bases. Don’t worry, there are two ITT offices in Orlando. One is inside of Shades of Green Military Resort on Disney Property and one is near MCO airport next door to the BX. 
  • This offer is not available at the front gate.
  • Up to five (5) SeaWorld Orlando Fun Cards can be purchased per qualified personnel in addition to the veteran.
  • Active duty military who have already visited the Waves of Honor complimentary admission can still purchase the 50% off SeaWorld Orlando Fun Card offer.

I’ve referred to the location in Orlando throughout this post but this discount is also available at Sea World San Antonio and Sea World San Diego. We’ve been to the San Antonio location and it was fantastic. There’s a water park included.
