My friend, Dena from Torrance has annual passes for her family. I asked her how she manages the long trip with young kids and she responded with this:
"We've had passes for 3 years now. We go down about 4 times a year - usually to coincide with the different holiday events they do. Normally we leave around 10am. That gets us there around noon. I pack a lunch which we eat in the car before we go in. Depending on the day, we either eat dinner there or at a local restaurant. Kids put their pajamas on for the drive home and are asleep for most of the ride. It makes for a long day, but it's completely do-able."
TEACHERS: You can get a free pass to Sea World that is good until the end of 2011. You need to show school ID, paystub, and California ID. Click here to order. Thanks to Ruben from Pico Rivera for sharing this link on Facebook!
