At SeaWorld Orlando’s Inside Look, guests can go behind-the-scenes to hear and see firsthand what goes into providing world-class animal care from the experts who do it every day. This special event features six unique, entirely behind-the-scenes locations, accessible in small groups to limit capacity and maintain safe physical distancing. New this year, guests can also attend an intimate socially distanced Trainer Talk with one of the park’s animal care specialists! Guests are invited to visit three locations or trainer talks to earn an exclusive FREE Expert Explorer’s Pin.
