SeaWorld Orlando General Updates

I figured the Build-A-Bear was taking over the old Sand Castle Toys location in Key West:


Just like the remodel of the Dolphin & Whale stadium, the makeover of Sealion and Otter Stadium has completely redone the stage and backdrop. Much more clean/serious looking than the old Sealion High stage was in the vein of the new more educational presentations:


SeaWorld is certainly getting polished up :look:

Between this and the Chick-fil-A at BGT, I am a little concerned about the state of SeaWorld the company if they start losing their unique theming and bring in third-parties everywhere. I'd hate to see them go the route of Six Flags and start featuring advertising wraps on the coaster trains.

With the updates done recently I am not that concerned. So far things they've done have modernized and enhanced theme in many cases (Coffee & Coasters, Lakeside Grill, Shark Encounter). Yes the theming has been a little simpler, but they at least are keeping with the SeaWorld idea.

I don't think they will do that...although, third party restaurants and ads in queues is a very real possibility

Although...That has *always* happened at Busch Gardens tho...they were just well incorporated

If it means more capital for the expansion projects they're looking to accomplish then bring it

Credit where it's due, friend from high school down, first time at Sea World. He praised the food as notably better than Disney. Overall was impressed with the park. This would not have happened a decade ago.
I agree with them. If you go into a random restaurant at WDW, its likely to not be as good as a random restaurant at SWO.
