    We are planning to spend a day at Sea World during our June 2017 WDW trip. Does anyone know what time they typically close at the beginning of June. We will be at CBR June 5-17. Also, is there a particular day of the week that is best to go? Lastly, is the front of line pass generally needed at that time of year? If so, do I need to buy my tickets through Sea World in order to get them, or can they be added to tickets I buy through Undercover Tourist? Thanks!

    Beginning of June they are open 9am to 8pm.
    End of June (Summer nights) Mon-Thurs 9am-8pm Fri-Sun 9am-10pm (maybe 11pm)
    This is based off memory.

    Have you tried a search on Seawards website for historical hours ? If not, I don't think @Crazydisneyfanluke is too far out.

    Seaworld is pretty much like Disney - weekends will always be busier because of the locals, midweek is therefore your best bet

    Thanks! Do they offer any kind of night time entertainment? Will we want/need to be there the whole day? I'm just trying to decide if I need to make an ADR at one of the WDW resorts for dinner that night.

    This is a huge mystery to me.

    We last visited WDW in August 2015. We always visit SeaWorld during our 2 week trip. While researching the park hours for SW I found that while they were open late (between 8pm-10pm) there was NO evening show advertised. Previous visits there had always been a Night-time Shamu show (which was more upbeat than the day-time showings) and was well worth staying for.

    As far as I'm aware, there is still no night-time show and the only reason for staying much beyond 6pm is to either eat or take in rides that you didn't get chance to do earlier

    During summer nights there is Shamu light up the night! The finale includes fireworks. There is also Dance party's and other activities planned esp for kids as well.
    I cant remember if they continue Sea Lion tonight! as i didn't go this year to summer nights.

    Any idea when "summer" starts for Sea World? We are thinking of going June 6, but could maybe move it back a week.

    Usually 2nd or 3rd week of June. I will check if any dates are announced for next year.

    This year it started on the 11th of June this year. I expect it to start the weekend of the 9th next year. They usually do a soft run for APs the first night as well.

    So, it looks like we'll miss "summer" by 1 week. We planned to go on Monday, June 12, and we leave Florida on Saturday, June 17. The posted hours are 9-7 that whole week until Saturday. :(:( So, my question is, will we need/want to be there all day? Just trying to decide if we could easily make the late Hoop-Dee-Doo show that night.

    We went back and did a 2nd day but then we love coasters, shows and the exhibits. It's a lot more chilled out than Disney. A thouroughly enjoyable day if you take it easy and expect a different kind of park to Disney/Uni
