Beach Club Getaway - Day 10 - SeaWorld And Fultons Crab House


One big drawback is no free wifi in the park. So no live trip reporting. I am now back in the Beach club after the day at SeaWorld. Tonight we are going to Downtown Disney for a meal at Fultons Crab House.

Our day started with Manta. Only a 10 minute wait at 9:30am.






We walked past Journey to Atlantis as we really didn't want to get wet this early.



Kraken next. I like this ride but the kids always complain about their heads getting bashed about on the ride.



On to the latest ride and area of the park. Antarctica.






Empire of the Penguin is the key attraction.



Only a 10 minute wait at 10:15. We actually were in within 4 minutes.



The pre-show area is a refreshing change to the normal Florida heat.



You can then choose Wild or Mild rides. We chose wild. Which really was quite mild lol



You then go into a small loading room before entering the ride vehicle.



You then spin and glide through a few rooms following a short story about Puck the penguin.






Ending up at the penguin viewing area where you get out to spend time in the frozen Antarctic.

Yes it is flippin' freezing



The exhibit is well presented and providing the queue is short it is quite a good ride and display. But I can understand people being disappointed if they spent more than about 20 minutes queuing.



There are photographers in there that offer to use your camera to take your pictures and then do one with theirs which they sell in frames for about $23.

My spare tyre is brought to you in association with the Disney Dining Plan. I am sure it wasn't there before this trip






On to dolphin cove. We like the underwater viewing area as well as the lagoon above.






Time for lunch in the Seafire Inn.

Food was pretty good with a reasonable selection.



Shark time.



The entrance tunnel. No sharks at this point.



There are various tanks before you get the shark tunnel.



You travel on a moving belt through the tunnel. Look up as the sharks do go over you.












Even some strange saw tooth ones.



No trip would be complete without visiting Clyde and Seymour.

I think the mime at the start is the funniest part.









Turtle Trek is also new to us since our last visit.



You have about 7 minutes to view the turtles from below before the show.






The main show is a 360 3D show following a turtle from hatching to adulthood. I thought it was well done and worth visiting.



As you exit you can view the turtles from above and also the manatees.






It was now time to head back to the hotel. It is always hot at SeaWorld. I wish they would put in more shade and fans to cool us down.



Fulton's Crab House for dinner.



Plenty of wine tonight. They must have known.



Lobster for us.



Cookie sundae.



Key lime pie



Chocolate creme brle



The meal was ok. Probably not worth 2 credits. But you could not fault the service.

Aw the penguin ride looks cute, but like you say I think I'd be disappointed to have waited as long as reports suggested people waited for :O

Enjoy your dinner
