  • Elmo and his friends, along with parade dancers, will invite guests to join the party on Sesame Street daily during SeaWorld Orlando’s first-ever parade!

“In partnering with Sesame Workshop, we are creating a land for guests to make an authentic connection that can only be found in hugging a furry friend or reading a book with Big Bird,” said Amanda Trauger, experience design manager for SeaWorld Parks and Entertainment.

Construction is already underway, and will be complete in time for a 2019 opening. The new land will be located on the south end of the park, where Happy Harbor currently stands. For more information, visit SeaWorld.com/Orlando.
