Sea World is PHENOMENAL!! It really is one of the best theme parks in Orlando. We last hit it in November 2001 (and I'm finally doing a trip report about it over in that forum - Sea World should be up over the weekend). It is clean, well run and managed and has just some of the best encounters with sea life you'll find on land - lots of those encounters are close up touchy feely!! Also, Sea World has joined the race in the trill ride arena and has built one of Orlando's biggest roller coasters, Kraken, and a great flume/coaster combo ride, Journey to Atlantis.
Hi Jzesty! We were just at Sea World last month. We did not try their Luau, so I'm sorry I don't have any information on that. I skipped it due to what I read in guide books. They seemed to think that it wasn't up to snuff for the price. I guess you never quite know unless you try it.
Have fun planning, and always happy to help out where I can. [img]graemlins/wavin.gif[/img]
Sea World has been a very special place to me since growing up- in fact, my parents were never big on WDW (why I don't know) and many times we made weekend trips to Orlando and spent most of our time at Sea World. This was many years ago, but we did go to the luau and it was fantastic. I recommended it to a friend of mine- on her trip she and her hubby decided to do the SW luau even though they already had ressies for the Poly luau-they actually did both and she said the SW one was better by a mile. (I have never gone to the luau at the Poly)
Definitely worth checking into and I am sure you will get more feedback here as well.
We did the luau at Sea World in 2000. We all enjoyed it very much.
It was indoors and the food was great. We got a front row table and a really close view of the man who twirls the baton of fire. DD even moved back a couple of seats....she could feel the heat! We love Sea World and when Danny is a little older we will probably do that show again!
