These theme parks have awesome freebies for military families!

For a limited time, both Sea World and Sesame Place are offering special discounts for U.S. military personnel to score free & discounted tickets!

These offers are only available to book online or at select military bases, and you’ll need to verify your eligibility through ID.me to access these special offers. Note that some blackout dates may apply.

*Additionally, Florida residents can score free admission for children 5 and under with a preschool card.

What a fun way to spend quality time with family and friends by taking a day trip to these theme parks!

Have a whale of a good time at Sea World…

Through June 27th, former military personnel can snag up to FOUR free Sea World Orlando 1-Day Admission Tickets! Note that May 29th, which is Memorial Day weekend, is excluded.

Additionally, through December 19th, former military can score 50% off Sea World 1-Day Admission Tickets for up to four people.

Be aware that the veteran must be present at the park with their guests for both of these offers.

Is Sesame Place more your pace?

Through December 31st, active-duty military, activated or drilling reservist, or National Guardsman can snag FREE Sesame Place or Sea World Busch Gardens 1-Day Admission Tickets for yourself and up to three dependents through their Waves of Honor program (limit one offer per year).

Plus, if your active duty service member is currently on a tour and can’t make the trip, dependents are still able to use this offer upon verification of service through Troop ID.

Not currently serving? No worries! Retired or honorably separated officers and military personnel are eligible to receive 50% off Sesame Place 1-Day Admission Tickets for up to SIX people! Awesome!
