Throughout the year Orlando Attractions offer Florida residents discounts on admission into their theme parks. Now through March 31, 2013 Gatorland is offering $9.99 admission per person if you have a valid Florida license. This takes $15 off the regular adult admission cost! No matter what age, the cost is only $9.99. A family of four can visit Gatorland for about half the cost of one adult ticket at one of the other larger Orlando theme parks!
Gatorland has grown in the past few years, so if you haven’t visited this Orlando attraction lately, you should. The most exciting expansion is their zip line experiences. These thrilling adventures take you high above the park where the view is spectacular. Read more from an earlier post.
Another area that is increasing in popularity is Gatorland’s bird rookery. While it has been around since 1991, this alligator breeding marsh has grown into one of the largest and most accessible wading bird rookeries in Florida. Over 20 different species of birds can be seen here. Since some of these birds are endangered, Gatorland has set up a Photographer Pass program from February through June 16th. The cost runs from just $19.99 for a single day up to $99.99 for an entire year. Bird watching has grown into a huge business, and since Florida is located along many migration paths, Orlando attractions which feature bird sanctuaries are a magnet for bird watchers.
After your day at Gatorland, make your reservations to visit the Orlando attraction which doubles as a dinner show attraction – Capone’s Dinner & Show. They offer a year-round Florida resident special of a free gift. The show at Capone’s is family-friendly and your entire flock (or gang) will enjoy it. The only birds you’ll see at this Orlando attraction are jail birds! They’re fun to watch though and will have you laughing like a kookaburra!
