SeaWorldOrlando_Logo_2014_250w

New addition to SeaWorld app allows guests to experience meal time on their own time

SeaWorld Orlando recently introduced Express Dine at its Seaport Pizza eatery to help cut wait times, especially during the busiest time of the year. An industry-pioneering feature, Express Dine is solely accessible from the SeaWorld Discovery Guide park app, furthering the app’s interactivity and maximizing its technology to allow guests to order lunch or dinner in advance.

By accessing the SeaWorld app from their smartphone, guests have the option to select from any of Seaport Pizza’s family-style pizzas, salads and soft drinks from anywhere in the park. Following the order, guests choose their preferred pick-up time and can then stop by to enjoy their meal at their convenience.

Express Dine is designed to maximize convenience for families by allowing them to plan their meals ahead of time in a fun, interactive and user-friendly way. With this new feature, families can expect shorter wait times so they can make the most of their day in the park.

Seaport Pizza

Seaport Pizza serves delicious pizza baked to perfection for rich taste and texture featuring only the freshest ingredients, including sun-ripened tomatoes, fresh herbs, pepperoni and sausage. This is a great one-stop-shop to satisfy every member of the family.

SeaWorld Discovery Guide Park App

The SeaWorld Discovery Guide mobile app saves guests time and increases their enjoyment through GPS-enabled interactive maps, real-time updates of show schedules and events, up-to-the-minute attraction wait times (with information on required heights), insider park tips, fun photo frames, and park notifications.

Hilton Orlando – There’s More to Orlando Than WDW – #HiltonOrlando

I'm Going to Disney World! ORLANDO!I recently had the opportunity to stay at the Hilton Orlando Resort. The resort is located near SeaWorld® Orlando, and offers a great location for vacation as well as for business. Only a 15 minute drive from Orlando International Airport and just off International Drive, the resort has such a great location for dining at any of the many, many restaurants along International Drive and is just a short drive to Universal Orlando®, SeaWorld® and Walt Disney World®. The resort offers free shuttle service to SeaWorld® and arrangements can be made for a small fee for transportation to Universal® or Walt Disney World®. The resort is also connected to the Orange County Convention Center, and offers a wide variety of ballrooms, meeting rooms and convention space.

Hilton Orlando features great amenities including two pools (one family pool and one “quiet” pool that only allows those over 18), a lazy river, waterslide, whirlpool, cabanas, 2 fire pits, spa and fitness center, 9-hole putting green, and a variety of recreational courts. There are also several great dining options right on property.

My check-in process took no more than a few minutes and within no time I was on my way to my 14th floor room. My room offered a fabulous view of the pool area.

My room was clean, comfortable and offered a mini-refrigerator, robe and slippers and a nice sized bathroom, with a great selection of toiletries.

AMENITIES

The resort offers a family pool as well as a quiet pool for guests over 18 years old. The pool bar, with a large menu, is located directly next to the family pool and offers nice seating.

The service throughout the entire resort was outstanding. I was able to enjoy one of the fine dining restaurants on property as well as the spa and will be writing about those two experiences later this week.

I can definitely say that the Hilton Orlando should be added to the list of excellent resorts in the Orlando area. The resort offers great service, great food and has a long list of wonderful amenities. It’s location couldn’t be better!

The resort offers several packages to help with your costs with prices starting well under $200 per night. A Daily Resort Charge will be added to the room rate and includes: Guest internet access; fitness center access; recreational amenities. Self parking: $16.00/Valet: $23.00

I received the service mentioned for free. This disclosure is made in accordance with the Federal Trade Commission’s 16 CFR, Part 255. All opinions are my own.
