The following terms and conditions (“terms and conditions” or “agreement”) apply to all vacation packages sold by SeaWorld Parks & Entertainment, Inc. or its subsidiaries (collectively, “SEA”) for its theme parks. All vacation packages sold in the State of Florida constitute prearranged travel sold by Sea World LLC. Sea World LLC is registered with the State of Florida as a Seller of Travel, Registration No. ST35724.
All prices shown are in U.S. Dollars ($) and include applicable taxes, fees and charges, except as otherwise noted. Package prices may require a minimum stay of one or more nights. All package prices are subject to change due to imposition of taxes or other charges by governmental authorities. All persons on the same reservation must purchase the same vacation package.
Other charges may be incurred that are not included in the quoted package price. While not all inclusive, examples include, hotel extra-person or extra-bed charges, resort fees, gratuities, hotel energy and/or telecommunications surcharges, parking fees, telephone fees, room service, movies, mini-bar, and other incidentals.
Hotel check-in varies by location. Two double beds are standard in the room unless otherwise stated. Charges for in-room safes, rollaway beds and cribs, plus applicable taxes, are not included in the package price and are payable directly to the hotel. Gratuities, resort fees, parking fees, laundry, telephone calls, meals, beverages, sightseeing or any other incidentals at the hotel are the responsibility of the guest. Adjacent rooms and/or connecting rooms, room locations, types of bedding and smoking preferences are on a request-only basis and subject to availability.
Deposits and Payments
Payment in full is required for the initial booking of a vacation package, except on packages that specifically allow deposits. Packages which allow deposits, if booking within 10 days of arrival (30 days of arrival for Discovery Cove reservations), full payment is required.
Payments must be made by credit card for internet sales. Accepted forms of payment are American Express®, MasterCard®, Discover® Card and Visa®.
The credit card used for deposit will automatically be charged the remaining balance on the account within 10 days prior to arrival (30 days of arrival for Discovery Cove reservations).

If an attempt is made to charge the credit card that was provided for payment and the charge is declined, then your reservation will be canceled. You will be refunded your deposit minus a $100 cancellation fee.
Pricing of Components in the Package
We are not able to disclose the pricing of the components within the vacation package.

In the event of cancellation, the right to a refund is limited. We can be reached at 407-545-5550 for Orlando, 210-520-4732 for San Antonio, or 619-222-4732 for San Diego. If a vacation package is cancelled more than 72 hours prior to 6 p.m. on the scheduled date of arrival (more than 30 days prior to the scheduled date of arrival for Discovery Cove reservations), the cost of the vacation package is refundable. There are no refunds if the vacation package is cancelled within 72 hours of 6 p.m. of the scheduled date of arrival (within 30 days of the scheduled date of arrival for Discovery Cove reservations). Refunds are not given on individual components of the package. Unused portions of vacation packages are not eligible for refund. All vacation packages are non-transferable.
Applicable Law and Responsibility
Both parties agree that all claims, disputes and matters whatsoever arising under or in connection with your booking and these policies and procedures shall be governed by the laws of the State of Florida (without regard to conflict of laws) and shall be litigated, if at all, in and before a court located in Orange County, Florida, USA, to the exclusion of the courts of any other state or country. All proceedings to resolve or litigate a dispute in any forum shall be conducted on an individual basis between the parties and neither party shall seek to have any such action heard as a class action, private attorney general action or in any representative capacity. SEA is not responsible for any error or omission. SEA is an independent wholesaler and is not responsible for any acts or omissions by the hotel. SEA shall not be responsible or liable in any way for any loss, injury (including personal injury), or any damage caused or arising in connection with customer's travel or other services or products provided through SEA, including but not limited to, any transportation, accommodations, attractions, meals, or other services, due to any acts of God, weather, strikes, acts of Government or other authorities, wars, civil disturbances, hijacks, thefts, or any other circumstances beyond our control. The terms and conditions of the transportation providers (including all applicable tariffs) shall apply to all transportation services. Upon a deposit for, and/or purchase of a vacation package, or through an electronic acknowledgment of acceptance of these terms, the guest accepts and agrees to these terms and conditions. This agreement constitutes the final, complete and exclusive understanding between the parties with respect to its subject matter and supersedes all prior or contemporaneous agreements in regard thereto. If either party commences legal action to interpret or enforce the terms of this agreement, the prevailing party in such action shall be entitled to recover reasonable attorneys' fees and costs, including, without limitation, those costs incurred at the trial and appellate levels and in any bankruptcy, reorganization, insolvency or similar proceeding. The parties have not relied upon any promises, warranties or undertakings other than those expressly set forth in this agreement. If any provision of this agreement is deemed to be invalid or unenforceable by any court of competent jurisdiction, then the balance of this agreement shall remain enforceable, and such invalid or unenforceable provision shall be enforced by such court to the maximum possible extent.
EZ PAY TERMS AND CONDITIONS
By accepting these terms and conditions, I agree to pay the down payment, and thereafter to pay the remaining number of payments, which will be billed monthly to my credit card. I may prepay my outstanding balance at any time. Prepayment will not automatically terminate this contract. I UNDERSTAND THAT I AM NOT PERMITTED TO CANCEL MY EZ PAY PLAN UNTIL ALL MONTHLY PAYMENTS FOR THE INITIAL TERM (as defined above) HAVE BEEN MADE. IF I FAIL TO PAY ANY MONTHLY PAYMENT, THE ENTIRE REMAINING BALANCE WILL BE DUE AND PAYABLE IMMEDIATELY (acceleration not applicable to Virginia residents) AND MY MEMBERSHIP MAY BE CANCELLED. If I fail to make payments for a period of 10 days or more, at the sole discretion of SeaWorld Parks & Entertainment, Inc. or its applicable subsidiary (“SEA”), I will be charged the costs of collecting my outstanding debt, including reasonable attorneys’ fees and court costs. If I fail to make payments for a period of 10 days or more, at the sole discretion of SEA, I may be assessed a late fee of up to 5% of each late installment. (California residents: 5% late fee is not applicable. California residents may be assessed a late fee of up to $10 if they are at least 10 days late or up to $15 if they are at least 15 days late and may also be subject to the actual and reasonable cost of collection if they fail to notify SEA of any change of address or to communicate with SEA 45 days after failure to make a payment.) EXCEPT FOR PASSES FOR SESAME PLACE ONLY WHICH WILL NOT AUTOMATICALLY RENEW, THIS CONTRACT WILL RENEW AUTOMATICALLY ON A MONTH-TO-MONTH BASIS FOLLOWING THE INITIAL TERM UNTIL I TERMINATE IT. Depending on the payment date I select or if I decide to prepay any amounts due, I may be charged for the automatic renewal period prior to the expiration of the Initial Term (automatic renewal not applicable to Sesame Place only passes). TO TERMINATE THIS CONTRACT AND PREVENT AUTOMATIC RENEWAL OF THIS CONTRACT, PLEASE CONTACT SEA C/O SEA WORLD CONTACT CENTER, 8403 SOUTH PARK CIRCLE, ORLANDO, FL 32819 TEL: 407-545-5550. I hereby authorize SEA to charge my credit card (or any other credit card which I supply SEA) for future payments. I may cancel my automatically renewed pass(es) at any time after the Initial Term has expired (automatic renewal not applicable to Sesame Place only passes). If I permit this contract to renew automatically and continue to pay my monthly payments on time, SEA will not increase my monthly payments prior to the fifth (5th) anniversary of the date that I sign this contract, but SEA reserves the right to do so in its sole discretion after such five (5) year period, in which case SEA will advise me of any rate changes (automatic renewal and 5-year price lock guarantee not applicable to passes for Sesame Place only). I UNDERSTAND THAT IF I DO NOT TERMINATE THIS CONTRACT THAT MY CREDIT CARD WILL CONTINUE TO BE CHARGED EACH MONTH AFTER THE INITIAL TERM HAS EXPIRED, EXCEPT FOR PASSES FOR SESAME PLACE ONLY WHICH WILL NOT AUTOMATICALLY RENEW. Payments will be made in accordance with my Credit Card Issuer Agreement. I understand that I am not permitted to contract for additional EZ Pay Plans if any balance under this contract is past due, and that any payments made by me to SEA may be used by SEA as a set-off to settle past due balances under this contract before applying the payments to other sales transactions. In addition, regardless of the number of times a pass is used, there are no refunds of amounts paid on my EZ Pay Plan. I am at least 18 years of age, and I consent to the use of my personal identification information for my EZ Pay Plan. Any and all disputes, claims, and causes of action arising out of or connected with this contract or the use of any park or pass SHALL BE RESOLVED INDIVIDUALLY, WITHOUT RESORT TO ANY FORM OF CLASS ACTION, and solely and exclusively in a federal or state court located in the state in which the park is located and you hereby submit to the sole and exclusive personal jurisdiction of said courts and irrevocably waive any and all rights to object to such jurisdiction; provided, however, that for multi-state passes, this contract is made in the state of Florida and shall be governed exclusively by the substantive laws of the state of Florida without giving effect to any conflict-of-laws rules requiring the application of the substantive law of any other jurisdiction. I understand and agree that my and SEA’s electronic signatures below shall have the same force and effect as written signatures.
PASSES ARE NON-TRANSFERABLE, NON-REFUNDABLE, AND MAY BE REVOKED FOR MISUSE.
NOTICE TO BUYER -- DO NOT SIGN THIS CONTRACT BEFORE YOU READ IT OR IF IT CONTAINS ANY BLANK SPACES. YOU ARE ENTITLED TO AN EXACT COPY OF THE CONTRACT YOU SIGN. KEEP IT TO PROTECT YOUR LEGAL RIGHTS.
