SeaWorld® Orlando: Behind the Scenes!

Dolphins, Sharks and Penguins… Oh My!

This event has passed. Check out more of our upcoming VIP Experiences!

With rare and exclusive glimpses of aquatic animals, super-special and up-close encounters, plus many opportunities to learn something new, you won’t want to miss our behind-the-scenes event at SeaWorld® Orlando. During your first night at Orange Lake Resort, you’ll enjoy a private dinner with an open bar and live entertainment on property in the Wilson Palmer Room, where you can meet and mingle with other members. Then, rest up and get ready for a “fin”-filled day!

Upon arriving at SeaWorld® Orlando, you’ll enjoy an exclusive behind-the-scenes tour where you’ll get to meet and interact with marine life in their respective habitats and learn more about the park’s conservation efforts. See what it takes to be a dolphin trainer and enjoy a private out-of-the-water dolphin encounter. Then, venture into the deep arctic to meet (and pet!) penguins, plus learn about their care before peering into the 700,000-gallon shark tank from above. After your tour, enjoy a plated lunch at Sharks Underwater Grill® and Bar. And once lunch concludes, you’ll have access to all the thrills the park has to offer!

Transportation will be provided to and from Orange Lake Resort and our experience. Please note some walking will be involved with this event (10 on a scale of 1–10*), which may include stairs.

Call (888) 213-9990 to start booking your VIP Experience!

*For reference, 10 is about 1.5 miles.
