Guests will have the opportunity to meet Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer and other loveable characters at Rudolph’s Christmastown. Rudolph’s Movie Experience, presented daily at SeaWorld’s Mission Bay Theater, features special effects like the aroma of hot chocolate and snowfall.

But our favorite part of Seaworld’s holiday celebration is the annual Blue Friday sale, which actually starts on the evening before Thanksgiving . . .

If you have ever considered dining with killer whales, encountering walruses or interacting with belugas and dolphins, now is the time to purchase a Seaworld animal experience! We took advantage of the buy-0ne-get-one-1/2-off  beluga whale interaction for our kids last year, and it was a wonderful value.

The savings at Seaworld go beyond animal experiences though. Camps are 50% off, silver and gold annual passes are buy-one-get-one-50% off. Tickets to both Seaworld and Aquatica are buy-one-get-one free, and you can even snag a Quick Queue pass BOGO.

The Blue Friday sale starts Wednesday, November 21st at 8 p.m. and Seaworld San Diego’s Christmas Celebration continues through January 6th. For more information on both, visit
