How does the reservation process work?

To make a reservation, you must have a ticket, Splash Pass, Season Pass or SeaWorld + Aquatica Annual Pass.

If you do not already have a ticket, Splash Pass, Season Pass or SeaWorld + Aquatica Annual Pass, you must purchase one before making a reservation. You will be prompted to make a reservation during the process of purchasing a ticket, Splash Pass, Season Pass or SeaWorld + Aquatica Annual Pass.

  • Guests can purchase and make a reservation for same-day tickets if there is inventory available
  • Single-day tickets are date specific, so your reservation to visit is included automatically when you choose the date of your ticket
  • Guests can make a reservation on the same day of a planned visit if there is inventory available
 
If you have an existing ticket, Splash Pass, Season Pass or SeaWorld + Aquatica Annual Pass, you must make a reservation prior to visiting the park. We have reserved daily capacity for our valued Pass Members and Splash Pass holders. Guests can make a reservation on the same day of a planned visit if there is inventory available. To make a reservation if you have an existing ticket, Splash Pass, Season Pass or SeaWorld + Aquatica Annual Pass:
  1. Click here or go to the site homepage and click the "Reserve Now" button
  2. Identify yourself as either a ticket, Splash Pass, Season Pass or SeaWorld + Aquatica Annual Pass
  3. Select the date you would like to visit
  4. Enter your ticket, Splash Pass, Season Pass or SeaWorld + Aquatica Annual Pass barcode number and email address to confirm your reservation
Once you receive your reservation confirmation via email, you must bring that confirmation along with your single-day ticket, Splash Pass, Season Pass or SeaWorld + Aquatica Annual Pass to enter the park.
 

Do I need reservations for anything else other than my ticket, Splash Pass, Season Pass or SeaWorld + Aquatica Annual Pass?

Guests purchasing premium experiences (dining) will need to make a reservation for the date of their premium experience in addition to the reservation required to enter the park.
