SeaWorld Hotels in Orlando

Everything in Orlando is growing so fast. Just a few short years ago you had to book a vacation near the attraction or theme park you wanted to visit. Now with all the new construction and new infrastructure of new roads and bridges, you can stay a hotel near Disney World and be really close to SeaWorld as well. In fact, most of the hotels near SeaWorld Florida are located on I Drive.

If you are traveling when kids are in school (January, February, September, and November) this is what is considered convention time and during large conventions most of the hotels on I-Drive are going to be much pricier than hotels in the Universal or Disney World area.

Hotels close to SeaWorld Orlando

All the theme parks in Orlando are located within a short 10 minute drive from one another. To find the best deals on Orlando hotels you need to go where majority of the guests are not staying. For example, if Disney has a big event going on for the weekend and there is a big convention in town you might want to check out a hotel near Universal Studios. Sure, you might have to drive about 10 minutes to get to SeaWorld, but you might be able to save as much as $35 to $75 a night.

A few of the hotels in the Disney area offer shuttle service to SeaWorld. The parking at SeaWorld is $20 a day so this is even more savings, and if you book a SeaWorld Vacation package which comes complete with attraction tickets and lodging you can save even more money.
