SeaWorld Orlando will be the place for kids on Saturdays in January as they present an all-new “Just For Kids” festival featuring concerts by LazyTown, Max & Ruby, the Doodlebops and Choo-Choo Soul, plus many family-friendly fun and activities.
In addition to the concerts, there will be numerous special offers. On event days, parents can rent strollers at half-price, and the following items are free for kids with each paid adult: all-day dining deal, sky tower ride and free Penguins Up-close, Dolphins Up-close or Behind-the-Scenes tours.
The concert lineup includes:

Max & Ruby’s Musical Playdate

Doodlebops’ Musical Playdate

Get movin’ and groovin’ with the Doodlebops. Rock stars DeeDee, Rooney and Moe sing their favorite songs, tell their wackiest jokes and show off their funkiest dance moves.
Choo-Choo Soul with Genevieve
Saturday, Feb. 4
Starring Genevieve Goings, Choo-Choo Soul allows parents to enjoy the same music their kids do. Featuring soulful and current renditions of the ABC’s, 1-2-3’s, and learning how to be polite, Choo-Choo Soul is a diverse and incredibly hip duo, teaching children through music on an animated train.
Concerts are included with park admission, with show times at 11 a.m. and 2 p.m. at SeaWorld’s Nautilus Theater. Guests will need to pick up concert tickets across from Nautilus Theater in order to attend the shows. Tickets will be distributed on a first-come, first-serve basis starting at 9 a.m. each event day.

There are interactive games, too, and kids can sit down for a face-painting session or make a sea-themed sand art souvenir with jewels and sea glass in the shape of dolphins, tropical fish, turtles and starfish.
