PARKsaver: SeaWorld’s Fun Card is back, plus Marriott deals

By Suzannah Mitchell DiMarzio and Beci Mahnken

It’s the most wonderful time of the year – time for holiday discounts and specials at Orlando area resorts and theme parks of course! There is simply no shortage of great deals and value-added packages and tickets in the Orlando area, and you don’t even have to worry about being on the naughty or nice list to get them.

This first special is a gift that keeps on giving. The popular SeaWorld Fun Card is back for Florida residents. All you have to do is pay for a day and come back again and again for the rest of 2012 and all of 2013 to enjoy SeaWorld’s shows, rides and special events all year long, with no blackout dates.

And buying a Fun Card now finds an even better value: Pay for a day and get the rest of 2012, including SeaWorld’s Christmas Celebration, and all of the great events and concerts throughout 2013. These special events at SeaWorld, like Spooktacular, Just For Kids celebration and more, are such a great enhancement to the park experience. Best of all, there is no extra admission ticket required, so your Fun Card will cover these events all year long.

2013’s Fun Card comes with an extra cool perk, too – Antarctica: Empire of the Penguin. When Antarctica opens next spring, guests will be transported into an icy world like they’ve never seen before. They’ll explore the South Pole and see it through the penguins’ eyes on a first-of-its-kind family ride. Then, they’ll step out and explore a penguin colony in an expanse that’s enveloping in cool extremes: bringing families above and below the penguins’ icy world.

Fun Cards are available at the park’s front gate, at or by calling (888) 800-5447.
