SeaWorld Orlando celebrates Cinco de Mayo — translated as “the fifth of May” — with seven exciting days of dancing, Mexican-inspired music, and traditional food, on April 30 – May 2, May 5, and May 7-9, from noon to 6 p.m., as part of their annual Seven Seas Food Festival.

Head to Wild Arctic Plaza near Shamu Stadium, where the energetic Fiesta in the Street gets the party started with beautifully costumed stilt walkers and energetic entertainers. Then, there is plenty of room to express yourself on the dance floor at the DJ Dance Party, guaranteed to get the whole family up on their feet.

The traditional tunes of Mexico add an air of festive authenticity as live bands chosen from the local talent in Orlando put on lively performances throughout the day, bringing bold and beautiful sounds to the scene.

It wouldn’t be a proper celebration without food and drink, and this Cinco de Mayo party features Mexican dishes such as Elote (grilled Mexican street corn), drunken shrimp tostadas, and barbacoa beef tacos, along with ice-cold beer and interesting cocktails. Watch for these specialty items while browsing the Seven Seas Food Festival’s Culinary Marketplace kiosks.

The event takes place entirely outdoors, with limited capacity and the ability to maintain social distancing, and it’s all done in colorful, family-friendly style.

SeaWorld takes safety seriously, and follows current CDC guidelines to help ensure a healthy experience for all of its park visitors. Guests ages 2 and up must wear face coverings over their nose and mouth, and all guests and employees must pass a temperature screening to enter the park.
