Spring Break Heats Up at SeaWorld’s Seven Seas Food Festival

SeaWorld Orlando Seven Seas Food Festival is a great way to celebrate spring in Orlando!

Foodies, take note: if you thought a trip to SeaWorld Orlando was merely about shark encounters, petting stingrays, zany dolphin shows and riding wicked fast roller coasters, then prepare to be amazed.

Just in time for the peak of the spring break season, SeaWorld celebrates a rich global culinary heritage with its Seven Seas Food Festival, taking place weekends from from February 9 through May 5.

The festival is a celebration of international street food traditions from all corners of the globe. Guests can meander through the scenic park as they sample a wide array of small plates from an expanded offering of culinary marketplaces. Indulge in diverse flavors from Mexico, the Caribbean, the Mediterranean, the Polynesian Islands, Asia and more. 

Other booths serve up American regional cuisine. Don’t miss the Gulf Coast Market, which pays homage to the beloved Cajun and Creole flavors of New Orleans. And be sure to save room for dessert at the Florida Booth. The Key Lime Fritters are fabulous.

But that’s just the beginning. The plates are paired with a wide array of craft beer, wine, cocktails and even sake. Local breweries and wineries are represented as well. Look for Crooked Can Brewery and Florida Cane Distillery offerings, among others.

There are also all kinds of kid-friendly bites, located at various booths. Who can resist Baja Fish Tacos from the Pacific Coast Market, or a Chocolate-Dipped Footlong Pretzel from the German Market?
