Cohen Vacation - Day 2 (Seaworld)


For the second day of our vacation, we headed across the street to SeaWorld. Yes, the resort (
Hill Country Hyatt) is across the highway from SeaWorld.


We started out early, and got there just as the park opened. We knew it was going to be a hot day, like always in Texas, so we broke out the sunscreen immediately.

After a quick potty check, we were off to the Sesame Street themed Bay of Play.

It was a good low-key ice breaker. We saw a show with the characters, and then the girls got to meet a few.

We met...The Count, Rosita, Abby, Grover, Cookie, Zoe, and Cookie. Good stuff.


Ellie and Zoe did a jig.

We got to meet our hero.

Abby and Gabby snuggled.

The girls spent a lot of time in the stroller (so glad we brought it) being chauffeured between the attractions.

Of course, we saw Shamu.

All in all, it was a great day. Some tips we thought we'd share (some we used, some we wished we knew)...
  1. Bring sunscreen, and use it.
  2. Bring a stroller if the kids are going to slow you down.
  3. Don't buy the All Day food wristbands if you've got little kids. No need.
  4. Do bring some food to the park (smuggle it in your bag). We had some snacks in a white plastic bag next to a white plastic bag with sunscreen. It blended in nicely. (We got lucky. It was unplanned.)
  5. Use the food when you're sitting in your seats for a show. You're usually at a show about 30-15 minutes prior to it starting. This is a great time to have a snack.
  6. If you need to buy a drink (frozen or otherwise), get the kids souvenir cup. It's cheap, and the refills are only $0.99.
I'm sure there's more, but that's it for now.

We wrapped up the day with dinner, story time, and s'mores.


Princess storytime. Ellie said that she wasn't a real princess, because there wasn't a crown. Gabby disagreed.

Yummy!

We love this place (Hill Country Hyatt).
