Visiting SeaWorld San Diego on a Budget

SeaWorld is a top family and tourist destination in San Diego, attracting thousands of visitors from around the nation, and even the world. While some visitors are fortunate enough to be able to visit this renowned theme park without having to worry about budget, others may have more modest amounts to spend while visiting. If you are planning a trip to San Diego and are interested in going to SeaWorld but are not sure if it will fit into your budget, here are some money saving tips:

  1. Look for discounted tickets. There are a few places where you can find discounted tickets. Depending on the season, visitors may be able to enjoy a slight discount when purchasing tickets online from the official SeaWorld website. Other discounts offered by the theme park include a military, AAA and senior citizen discount. For those who do not fall into any of the aforementioned categories, the Marina Inn hotel near SeaWorld San Diego offers discounted admission tickets all year round for guests of the hotel.
  2. Stay at a preferred SeaWorld hotel. When in San Diego, there are countless options for hotel accommodations. However, to make the most out of your trip, stay at one of the more affordable hotels near the theme park. Why spend all your money on your lodging when you will be spending most of your time exploring attractions and going sightseeing? Look for hotels that offer SeaWorld hotel deals, low rates and a host of complimentary amenities to ensure maximum savings and comfort.
  3. Go to the park early. You’re spending the money to purchase tickets, go early and make the most of your day at SeaWorld. In addition to checking out the many exhibits and going on the rides and roller coasters, take advantage of all the free live shows. From orca and sea lion shows to live acrobatic performances, there are plenty of options to pack your day full of fun.

Other Tips for Saving at SeaWorld

Other tips for saving at SeaWorld San Diego include packing snacks to help save on dining at the park, as well as brining your own water bottles. As long as they are unopened when you enter SeaWorld, you are welcome to bring your own beverages. Also, SeaWorld requires a lot of walking. If you are traveling with younger children, bring their stroller along because stroller rentals from SeaWorld can be quite expensive. Plus, when you’re not carting your kids around, you can use the stroller to hold your personal belongings, allowing you skip the unnecessary costs of locker rentals.
