SeaWorld Ends Residents Fun Card

Today was the last day for Florida and Georgia residents to purchase a Fun Card from SeaWorld Orlando or Tampa Bay Busch Gardens. The $80 ticket allowed residents to turn their one day visit into a multi-day ticket good through the end of the year.

The company is apparently satisfied that attendance will continue to trend upwards as the economy recovers. They will be pushing annual passes instead. Switching to an AP should be a relatively painless upgrade for most as SeaWorld offers monthly payment plans for the AP and it includes parking. When you added in parking for future visits the FunCard was less of a value anyway.

The AP has other benefits (including food and merchandise discounts and discounts on tickets for other Seaworld parks) and is good for 365 days from purchase too.
