Jack Hanna Weekend at SeaWorld Sept. 14, 15

While other parts of Orlando are getting ready for a scare-fest, SeaWorld is preparing for a walk on the wild side.

Wildlife expert Jack Hanna and various animal ambassadors will visit SeaWorld Sept. 14 and Sept. 15.

Billed as Jack Hanna Weekend, the limited time series will take place at the Nautilius Theater. In addition, fans will have the opportunity to have dinner with Hanna at Dine with Shamu® and breakfast with him at Sharks Underwater Grill.

Hanna is known all over the world for his love of animals and conservation. His previous “co-stars” have included clouded leopards, kookaburras, penguins and eagles.

Hanna will appear at the Nautilus Theater Saturday, Sept. 15, and Sunday, Sept. 15, at 1:15 and 3:15 p.m. Seating is on a first-come, first-served basis and the program is included with park admission.

Breakfast will take place on those days at 9 a.m. and will include discussion of Hanna’s animal friends, adventures, and a Q&A. Guests will receive a complimentary photo with him, and reserved seats for the 1:15 p.m. show. The cost is $49 for adults and $39 for children 3 to 9; children under 3 are admitted free, but reservations are required.

The VIP buffet dinner is at 5 p.m. both days, where guests mingle with Hanna and meet his animal friends. He’ll also share stories, answer questions, and pose with families for a complimentary photo. A complimentary adult beverage is included, all for $59 for adults and $49 for kids 3 to 9; reservations needed for kids under 3.

Pass members receive 10% off both events.
