Sesame Street opens for young fans at SeaWorld Orlando

March 27, 2019, 2:15 PM · The Lego Movie World wasn't the only children's land to open in Central Florida today. SeaWorld Orlando officially opened its new Sesame Street land to the public today, as well.

Sesame Street replaces Shamu's Happy Harbor, with a redecorated Super Grover’s Box Car Derby taking over from the Shamu Express.

Other kids' rides in the land include:

In addition, Sesame Street fans will find the Rubber Duckie Water Works water play area and several interactive windows where visitors can talk with Sesame Street characters.

For more entertainment, there's Storytime with Big Bird and SeaWorld Orlando's first daily parade, the Sesame Street Party Parade.

Great addition to SeaWorld Orlando! 2019 is going to be a great year for theme park fans, especially in Orlando!

So, can anyone tell me how to get there?

From the images I could find online of this new land, I am excited to check it out. Without a direct tie to something water-related, I would never imagine it was within a Sea World park. But I like it!!

I did manage to get to both new themed areas in town, though not as planned:) and Sesame Street and LEGO Movie World both look good. Chad, I can tell you how to get to both and yes, Sesame Street is easier to get to even if you're in Polk County thanks to the roads involved, brought to us by the letters "DOT' and the letter and number combos of HWY 27 and I4....

Sounds like it wasn't "sunny days" due to rainy weather but still looks a good addition the park can use and surprising how well it fits.
