By Car 

The marine park is south of Orlando and Universal, north of Disney. From I-4, take exit 72, Beachline (previously Bee Line) Expressway/Highway 528, and follow the signs.

Parking -- Parking costs $12 for cars, light trucks, and vans; it's $20 for preferred parking closer to the park entrance. The lots aren't huge, and most folks can walk to the entrance; trams also run. Note the location of your car -- SeaWorld characters such as Wally Walrus mark sections, but at the end of a long day it's easy to forget where you parked.

Shuttle Service

SeaWorld and Busch Gardens in Tampa, both owned by Blackstone, have a shuttle service that offers $10 round-trip tickets to get you from Orlando to Tampa and back. The 1 1/2- to 2-hour each-way shuttle runs daily and has five pickup locations in Orlando, including at Universal and on I-Drive (tel. 800/221-1339). The schedule allows about 7 hours at Busch Gardens. The service is free if you have a FlexTicket.
