Almost the entire kids area is closed due to the Sesame Street construction. A lot of stuff closed and not outlined in one spot on the website unfortunately. The other SeaWorld parks have a special page but Orlando does not.

I would call the park or rely on someone who lives close by :-P

Seaworld does have a schedule of when rides will be down.


At the top they state about happy harbour being closed now and at the bottom they have the schedule of rides shut down throughout the year

SeaWorld Orlando has sent us a press release announcing the Grand Opening of Sesame Street at SeaWorld Orlando later this month! Mark your calendars because the new land will open to guests on March 27th, 2019!

Announced today, the Grand Opening of the six acre world-class attraction, Sesame Street at SeaWorld Orlando, will take place on March 27. For the very first time, take a walk down Sesame Street and bring your family to the neighborhood your favorite furry friends call home. Take a stroll down Sesame Street and stop by the famous stoop at 123. Explore the inside of Hooper’s Store, then head for big fun at Big Bird’s Nest.

Sesame Street at SeaWorld Orlando is exactly as you imagined, and with an award-winning parade, wet and dry play areas, rides, and an interactive neighborhood, it’s more fun than you could ever dream. Come play and learn with Elmo, Cookie Monster, Abby and all of their furry friends!

Mark Pauls, President of SeaWorld Orlando Parks said, “We are thrilled to announce the opening date for this much anticipated attraction and we cannot wait to welcome guests to Sesame Street at SeaWorld Orlando on March 27. With over 30 new ways to play and an award-winning parade, this is an attraction that guests of all ages are going to love.”

As the iconic children’s brand celebrates its 50th anniversary in 2019, this is the perfect time to welcome Sesame Street to SeaWorld Orlando. This addition is the newest must-do experience in Orlando joining the park’s famed attractions--the roller coaster thrills of Mako, Manta and Kraken and the water fun of Infinity Falls and Journey to Atlantis.

Looks nice! We'll miss it by a few days. Excited to bite into some Mako nonetheless.

Yes! It's opening the day before my visit!!

Does that mean that I should run to Shamu Express first thing? :lmao: (but actually, should I? I am a bit of a credit whore)

Because of it's location in the back, I think it may have a staggered opening. Mako doesn't even open with the park as of March of last year.

Surprised to see a March open! I am really excited to see how far the theming is pushed with this new land. It is interesting that they have the opening date the exact same as Lego Movie World, which it seems would be direct competition for the demographic Sesame Street hits.

How do the crowds get at Aquatica? Does anyone recommend it? Is QQ a necessity more often than not? We're not really waterpark folks but it looks pretty nice, and since we might have some downtime and we're staying right nearby I was wondering if it was worth it to check out for maybe a few hours. Note: we're platinum passholders so cost isn't a factor. And yes, I see they have beer.

I love Aquatica and honestly think it's one of the better water parks around as far as slide selection goes. It's been a few years since I went but like most water parks the crowds can get heavy in the middle of the day but in the morning and towards the end it's usually pretty light. If you're staying nearby and have a Platinum pass I'd say its absolutely worth a few hours.
