SeaWorld discount tickets can be found fairly easily for those willing to do their shopping online.

For example, you can take single-day offers for SeaWorld discounts simply by ordering from the SeaWorld web site. Click the "Don't Forget" tab and you will see a second page that features Quick Queue and an All Day Dining Deal.

Quick Queue comes in both "Unlimited" and "One Time" versions. The lead to priority access to the park's most popular attractions, such as Manta, Kraken, Journey to Atlantis, and Wild Arctic. The pass also includes one complimentary ride on Paddle Boats and Skytower. The one-time version, as the name implies, is good for one front-of-the-line jump at selected attractions.

The All Day Dining Deal gives you "all you can eat" privileges at participating restaurants in the park. You'll be given a wristband that signifies you've signed up for the offer. The offer is good for one entrée platter, an additional side item and a fountain soft drink, iced tea or bottled water each time through the line.

All of these offers are billed as "pay once and put your wallet away for the day." The dining deal could pay off if you plan on multiple meals within the park. By the way, parking passes and stroller rentals can also be completed here prior to online checkout. Taking care of all these purchase prior to arrival saves valuable vacation time. Anything that prevents waiting in long lines is a money-saver because on vacation, time is money.

SeaWorld also combines entry fee discounts with several other parks. One is a fairly obvious partner in Orlando -- the adjacent water park known as Aquatica. Order SeaWorld and Aquatica tickets together for a discounted total price.

You may also order SeaWorld and Busch Gardens tickets together. Busch Gardens is an amusement park located west of SeaWorld Orlando in the Tampa Bay area, but many people like to visit both parks on separate days of a Florida vacation.

It is also possible to take discounts for SeaWorld Single Day admissions with a second visit for free.

If your travel plans take you to SeaWorld San Diego, check out discounts for single-day admission and unlimited visits for 14 days The three online offers include the Fun Card, which is good for general admission but not valid on certain blackout days. The Length of Stay Ticket uses a "Touch-n-Go finger scan ID verification system." SeaWorld San Diego claims it does not store or share the information.

The parks host special events at various times of the year. It always pays to browse upcoming SeaWorld Park events to see if anything of interest coincides with your itinerary.
