SeaWorld Orlando and its nearby sister parks have received a new name just yesterday morning. Indeed, park officials have just announced that the whole resort (including some of the partner hotels in the area) will now be called "SeaWorld Parks & Resorts Orlando." Here is the official announcement:
SeaWorld Orlando, its Parks and Official Hotels Now Make Up
SeaWorld Parks & Resorts Orlando
SeaWorld’s new resort destination in Orlando helps stretch vacation dollars and maximize vacation fun
Orlando, FL (April 24, 2012) - SeaWorld Parks & Resorts Orlando, including three theme parks and seven official hotel partners, is now a full vacation experience offering money-saving travel values, exclusive benefits, a convenient location and unique sea-themed adventures found only at SeaWorld and its parks.
SeaWorld’s other parks in Orlando include Discovery Cove, an all-inclusive swim-with-dolphins resort, and Aquatica, SeaWorld’s waterpark.
“SeaWorld Parks & Resorts Orlando is the one destination in Orlando where families can conveniently connect with our parks, our animals and the rest of Orlando’s attractions, combining preferred hotel stays with significant savings and exclusive benefits,” said Terry Prather, president of SeaWorld, Aquatica and Discovery Cove. All within walking distance of SeaWorld, the park’s official hotels include quality resorts by Doubletree by Hilton, Fairfield Inn & Suites, Hilton Garden Inn, Hilton Grand Vacations, Renaissance, Residence Inn and Springhill Suites.
“This is a great opportunity for guests coming to Orlando and looking for value and a unique vacation experience,” said Bob Walsh, general manager, Renaissance Orlando at SeaWorld. “We’re providing adventure, savings, and amazing extras you can’t get anywhere else.”
SeaWorld’s parks and hotel resorts are conveniently located on the International Drive entertainment corridor mid-way between Central Florida’s other theme parks and are the closest of all resorts to the Orlando International Airport.
These deals certainly add a lot of value for people thinking about visiting SeaWorld, Discovery Cove, and/or Aquatica. Add in also the great new attractions and experience planned for the next few years, and you have an offer that will definitely attract many (and will keep them longer in the area).
What do you think? Do these offers appeal to you and your family? Would this make more willing to spend multiple days in the SeaWorld area (leaving out Walt Disney World, Universal Orlando, Busch Gardens, or LEGOLAND Florida)? Let us know in the comments.
