SeaWorld Orlando Seven Seas Food Festival 2021 Guide

After being cut short in 2020, the SeaWorld Orlando Seven Seas Food Festival is back for 2021, running weekends all the way through May 9. Featuring over 200 dishes, wines, beers, and cocktails, the festival is a culinary delight. Add to that the special entertainment including headline concerts on select dates, plus all of the great rides, shows, and wildlife exhibits, and it’s easy to see why many guests enjoy returning again and again to SeaWorld during Seven Seas.

SeaWorld Orlando continues to operate with guest safety in mind, which includes temperature checks before entering, requiring face-coverings at all times except when eating, drinking, or in a designated relaxation area, and reminders throughout the park to maintain social distancing and to frequently wash or sanitize hands. Guests can do their part by abiding by park rules and paying attention to signage and markers to give extra space between their group and other guests & ambassadors.

In the interest of full disclosure, many of the items we tried were provided to us at a media event hosted by SeaWorld or by redeeming punches on sampler lanyards given to us by the park. As always, all opinions are our own. While we’ve tried to provide the most accurate information possible, please note that item availability, prices, and other details are subject to change without notice. Please confirm all information with the park directly if you have any questions or concerns. This article was last updated on February 24, 2021.


Festival Basics

The SeaWorld Orlando Seven Seas Food Festival 2021 takes place on Fridays, Saturdays & Sundays each weekend through May 9. Access to the festival is part of any admission, and that includes concerts on Saturdays & Sundays. Food & beverage items are available for purchase at all of the regular and special festival locations on event days and can be bought a la carte or by using a sampler lanyard. See more details on the concerts, sampler lanyards, and festival locations in this article below.

The festival booths open between 11 and 11:30 a.m. each event day and remain open until park close. Keep in mind that booths can run out of certain dishes and beverages, so if there’s something on your must-have list, plan on getting it earlier in the day so you don’t miss out. Booths may also temporarily close during inclement weather for the safety of both guests and ambassadors.




If you arrive at the park and haven’t already purchased a sampler lanyard, reserved concert seating, or maybe just have a question about Seven Seas, then your first stop should the Welcome & Information Center located outside of Seafire Grill. Look for it across from the Dolphin Nursery.

SeaWorld has created a handy pocket guide for Seven Seas Food Festival 2021 that has location listings with menu items & other information. You can pick one up on event days from the Welcome Center or at the different booths. You can also see the guide in digital form on the park’s website as a PDF, which you can download to your device if you prefer to go paperless while enjoying the festival.


Concerts

Live entertainment returns in a big way to Seven Seas Food Festival 2021 at SeaWorld Orlando with concerts each Saturday & Sunday. This season features a mix of headline acts and trios of tribute acts. On days with just one headline act, the concert is scheduled to begin at 6 p.m. When the tribute bands are scheduled, each act has its own separate concert, with the times being 2, 4, and 6 p.m.

Concerts take place at Bayside Stadium, an outdoor amphitheater on the shore of the main lagoon. There is reserved seating available for an upcharge, which includes the lowest and most centered sections in front of the stage. There is no floor seating available this season.

The rest of the stadium seating is available on a first-come, first-served basis. Every other row is closed off to help maintain social distancing, and guests are asked to leave space between groups in the same row, so it’s best to arrive early to see your favorite performers and ensure a good seat.

Bayside Stadium is only accessible via the Wild Arctic side this season, so keep that in mind when arriving to see a show. From the front of the park, the quickest route is to pass Flamecraft Bar and cross the lagoon using the bridge, hanging a right at Orca Stadium and then heading right again at Wild Arctic plaza. The stadium opens as early as 3 p.m. on headline concert days for those who wish to get the best seats and wait until the 6 p.m. start time.

See the full concert lineup in our recent article.




Sampler Lanyards

Available for purchase at the Welcome Center or at any of the festival cabins, the Sampler Lanyards can save you money if you’re planning on purchasing multiple items. The best part is the lanyards can be shared among your party, and are good throughout the duration of the festival, so no need to buy one for every person or feel you need to use all the punches in one visit. Just note that the lanyards expire when the festival ends, May 9, and there are no refunds for unused punches.

There are two price points for the lanyards – $60 for a ten-item lanyard and $75 for a 15-item lanyard. Annual pass members can also get an exclusive 18-item lanyard for the price of a 15-item lanyard. Unlike past seasons, annual pass member discounts do not apply to sampler lanyards, however, discounts do still apply for a la carte purchases at the festival locations.

The lanyards are valid at every booth for food and beverage items. The sizes for the food items are the same whether using a punch on the lanyard or paying out of pocket. If you use a sampler lanyard punch on a beverage item (other than bottled soda/water) you will receive a smaller size than if you pay out of pocket. This can be both a good and bad thing – it allows you to sample more alcoholic beverages as you make your way around the festival, but some find it to be less of a value. If you know you love a particular beer, wine, or cocktail, it may make more sense to pay for the full-size version (and remember pass member discounts apply).

How much you can save will vary depending on which lanyard you purchase and what items you choose, but assuming you stick to the more expensive food items, you can easily save 20% or more compared to the full prices of the menu items.


Food & Beverage Locations

There are a total of 26 Seven Seas Food Festival locations as part of this year’s event, serving up over 200 different dishes, wines, beers, and cocktails. Some of the booths focus just on beverages, while others include both food & drink selections. The easy way to tell the difference at a glance is locations with festival food items have “Market” in their name.

The festival locations are spread out through much of the park, beginning in the Waterfront area near the entrance and extending past Mako, Infinity Falls, and into the Wild Arctic Plaza and up to Bayside Stadium. The designated festival stops are a mix of permanent restaurants & bars along with special booths set up just for Seven Seas. At the regular park locations, there are select items that are featured for Seven Seas and can be redeemed with a sampler lanyard punch. The full menus at regular locations are also available for purchase a la carte, and pass member discounts apply on most items.

Many of the food booths feature a theme based on cuisine and/or geography. Throughout the festival, there has been a focus on selecting sustainable, organic, and local ingredients and suppliers.

Below you’ll find a complete listing of all items, including pricing, pictures of select dishes, and our thoughts on what we’ve tried. Items marked (GF) are gluten-free, those marked (VF) are vegetarian friendly, and ones marked (V) are vegan. If you have any dietary restrictions or aversions, it’s always best to ask when they are preparing your items to make sure they are appropriate for your needs.

The Caribbean Sunset is a great non-alcoholic option for kids or those who prefer not to imbibe. It has a light, citrus taste and is a refreshing choice on a hot Florida day.


#5 All-American Market Presented by Kraft Heinz

Near the main entrance to Voyager’s Smokehouse, you’ll find the All-American Market. Each of the dishes here has a Kraft brand component with the company serving as the sponsor of this festival location.

  • Brisket Totchos (GF) – $8.99 – Slowly Smoked Brisket, Crispy Potato Tots, Kraft Heinz MAYOCHUP
  • Hot HONEYRACHA Chicken Wings – $8.49 – Yuengling Marinated Wings tossed in Kraft Heinz Hot HONEYRACHA Sauce

We had a chance to taste some Lobster Mac & Cheese at the media event, and it was quite delicious. A rich, creamy texture with a bit of lobster mixed in. One of the more pricey food items at this year’s festival, it’s a good use of a sampler lanyard punch if you’re looking for a hearty, savory dish.


#6 Matua Vineyards and Main & Vine Wine Spritzers

Across the plaza from All-American Market is the next drink stop, serving up several wines and spritzers.

  • Wine Spritzer – Main & Vine – $7.99 – Cucumber Watermelon, Blood Orange Mango, Pink Grapefruit, or Pomegranate
  • Wine – Matua Vineyards – $9.99 – Sauvignon Blanc, Rosé, or Pinot Noir

#7 Polynesian Island Market

On the corner of Voyager’s Smokehouse is Polynesian Market, serving up several Asian-inspired dishes and Hawaiian based beverages.

  • Korean BBQ Lamb Ribs – $9.49 – Daikon Slaw
  • Five-Spice Duck Lettuce Wraps (GF) – $7.49 – Asian Pear Slaw and Plum Sauce Drizzle

    • Souvenir Cup – $14.99 / Refills – $11.99
  • Dasani – $3.69

We got a sample of the Korean BBQ Ribs at the media event. The flavor was good, but as is the case with any ribs the quality depends on how well it’s cooked and how fatty a piece you get. Wouldn’t call this one a miss, but it wasn’t our favorite item from this year’s choices.

A few of this year’s items are also available at Busch Gardens Tampa’s Food & Wine Festival, including the ribs and Five-Spice Duck Lettuce wraps. We tried that dish at Busch Gardens and enjoyed the warm spice blend on the tender duck with the contrast of the cool crisp lettuce and nuts on top.


#8 Italian Market

Head behind Fins Gifts for the next two festival locations, which are both on the patio overlooking the lagoon on the backside of the gift shop. North Atlantic Market has a couple of dishes you would expect to find on the northeast coast.

#13 Mediterranean Market

Moving past Mako, Mediterranean Market serves up several dishes, including our choice as the tastiest item from this year’s festival!

  • Mediterranean Hummus & Parmesan Garlic Fries  (GF, VF) – $5.99Homemade Hummus with Chili Oil

  • Cocktail – Sparkling St. Tropez – $8.99 – Grey Goose Le Citron Vodka, St Germain Elderflower Liqueur, Prosecco, Lemon Juice
  • Dasani – $3.69

The favorite item we’ve tried so far at this year’s Seven Seas Food Festival is the Goat Cheese Croquettes. The goat cheese itself is delicious and so savory. Add on the rich, sugary honey and you end up with an incredible blend of savory & sweet. Seriously, put this one on your must-try list when you visit.


#14 Cutwater Spirits

Just across the path from Mediterranean Market is the next stop, Cutwater Spirits. You can get your adult beverage here in a popsicle or traditional liquid form.

    • Souvenir Cup – $14.99 / Refills – $11.99
  • Dasani – $3.69

The Pao de Queijo (cheese bread) is a pretty safe choice for any picky eaters in your family or travel party.


#16 Waterway Grill

Head inside Waterway Grill and up to the main bar for stop #16 at Seven Seas Food Festival. Along with the regular bar menu and snacks available for purchase, draft beers and two cocktails are featured here as part of the festival.

  • Draft Beer – $10.99 – 16 choices including rotating Craft Brews
  • Cocktail – Puffin Kiss – $12.99 – Reyka Icelandic Vodka, Flor de Cana Rum, Midori, Peach Schnapps, Pineapple
  • Cocktail – Tropical Turtle Hurricane – $12.99 – Naked Turtle Rum, Captain Morgan Spiced Rum, Pineapple Juice, Passionfruit, Mango Puree

#17 Asian Market

Heading beyond Infinity Falls and towards Orca Stadium will bring you to the next two event locations. The first is Asian Market, serving up more Asian-inspired dishes and a few adult beverages from Japan.

  • Giant Tempura Prawns – $9.49 – Sea Urchin Aioli, Fresh Lime
  • Crispy Pork Belly Bites – $8.99 – Sweet Soy & Ginger Glaze
  • Bingsu Salted Vanilla Ice Cream (GF, VF) – $5.49 – Topped with caramel popcorn

  • Cocktail – Sparkling Pear (Non-alcoholic) – $5.99 – Pear Nectar, Ginger Ale, Lemon
  • Dasani – $3.69

We were able to sample two of the dishes from this location at the media event for Seven Seas. The Giant Prawns earn their title – they are quite large. The tempura coating was light and crispy, with the aioli complementing the prawns nicely.

Pork belly fans should enjoy the dish here, with a tasty Asian-inspired flavor instead of the traditional southern style preparation some may be more familiar with.


#18 Vegan Market

Just across from Asian Market, Vegan Market serves up several dishes and beverages which are animal product free.

  • Tempura Mushrooms & Green Beans (V) – $6.99 – Miso Glaze & Furikake
  • Jack Fruit Sloppy Joes (V) – $7.99 – Red Cabbage Slaw, Chipotle Emulsion
  • IMPOSSIBLE™ Meat Slider (V) – $8.49 – Balsamic Onion Jam, Crispy Jalapenos
  • Hard Seltzer – Bold Rock (V) – $10.99 –  Passion Fruit Hard Seltzer, Nellysford, Virginia
    • Souvenir Pilsner – $12.99 / Refills – $9.99
  • Hard Cider – Bold Rock (V) – $8.49 – Pineapple Hard Cider, Nellysford, Virginia
  • Wine – Proud Pour (V) – $9.99 – “Save the Bees” Pinot Noir or “Save the Oceans” Sauvignon Blanc
  • Dasani – $3.69

We had a chance to taste the Jack Fruit Sloppy Joes at the media event and were impressed. From a non-vegan perspective, the fact it was meatless didn’t detract from the taste. Just note it’s got a pretty good kick of spiciness.


#19 Sweets Market

Just around the corner is Sweets Market with three different cheesecake options served in a waffle cone.

  • White Chocolate Raspberry Cheesecake Waffle Cone (VF) – $6.49
  • Rainbow Cheesecake Waffle Cone (VF) – $6.49
  • Bananas Foster Cheesecake Waffle Cone (VF) – $6.49
  • Specialty Cocktail – Frozen Espresso Martini – $TBA – Absolut Vanilla Vodka, Kahlua, Chameleon Cold Brew Coffee
  • Dasani – $3.69

A popular sweet treat from past events returns with the cheesecake waffle cones. We tried the White Chocolate Raspberry variety, and while not sure there’s much of a discernable white chocolate flavor, it was still a creamy, tasty dessert with the added benefit of some crispy cone.


#20 Mama’s Pretzel Kitchen

One of the park’s regular concession locations, Mama’s Pretzel Kitchen is featuring eight draft brews, including SeaWorld’s own special Mako Red Ale. While not part of the Seven Seas offerings (meaning no sampler punch option), if you’re looking for a good soft pretzel, this is the place to get one at the park.

  • Draft Beer- $10.99 – 8 Choices featuring Red Mako Ale and rotating Craft Brews

Here’s a look at the beers on tap as of early February:


#21 German Market

Right next to Mama’s Pretzel Kitchen is the German Market, where you can choose from a few German beers or grab a Bavarian-style snack.

  • Heritage Pork Schnitzel Slider – $7.99 – Beer Sauerkraut, German Mustard
  • Pretzel Bratwurst – $6.99
  • Chocolate Dipped Foot Long Pretzel (VF) – $6.99
  • Draft Beer – Hofbrau Original – $10.99 – Lager, Munich, Germany
    • Souvenir Pilsner – $12.99 / Refills – $9.99
  • Draft Beer – Paulaner – $10.99 – Hefeweizen, Munich, Germany
    • Souvenir Pilsner – $12.99 / Refills – $9.99
  • Draft Beer – Warsteiner – $10.99 – Pilsner, Warstein, Germany
    • Souvenir Pilsner – $12.99 / Refills – $9.99
  • Cocktail – Frozen Jäger Bomb – $12.99 – Jägermeister, Monster Energy Drink, Cherry
  • Dasani – $3.69

The chocolate-covered pretzel here is a returning festival favorite, although you might get some interesting looks when you carry it around. (You’ll understand when you see someone with one.) But it’s chocolate surrounding a soft pretzel – hard to go wrong there if you’re looking for something both sweet & salty.




#22 Crooked Can Brewing Company & Motorworks Brewing

Featuring six different beers from two local breweries, stop #22 also offers a handful of snacks available a la carte to go with the drinks.

  • Draft Beer – Crooked Can Brewing – $10.99 – High Stepper IPA, Florida Sunshine Lager, or Workaholic Pale Ale
    • Souvenir Pilsner – $12.99 / Refills – $9.99
  • Draft Beer – Motorworks Brewing – Adoptable Lager, Pulp Friction IPA, or FL Rollcage
    • Souvenir Pilsner – $12.99 / Refills – $9.99
  • Bottled Soda – $4.29 – Coca-Cola, Diet Coke, or Sprite
  • Dasani – $3.69

Located in the grass next to this booth is the festival’s Beer Garden, which is really just a fancy designation for the open-air picnic table seating available here. But with its location just around the corner from Sesame Street, it will surely be a favorite among parents who need an adult beverage and a break from all the child-oriented fun.


#23 Gulf Coast Market

Just past the beer garden heading towards Wild Arctic are the next two event locations, including Gulf Coast Market featuring several New Orleans inspired creations.

  • Beignets (VF) – $6.99 – Traditional with Powdered Sugar,  Bourbon Caramel, or Rum Glazed Bananas Foster
  • Bourbon BBQ Smoked Pork Po’ Boy – $7.99 – Crisp Lettuce & Pickles
  • Fried Oyster Po’ Boy – $8.49 – Tabasco Pepper Remoulade, Crisp Lettuce & Pickles
  • Draft Beer – Abita Brewing – $10.99 –  Purple Haze Raspberry Wheat or Strawberry Lager
    • Souvenir Pilsner – $12.99 / Refills – $9.99
  • Cocktail – Hurricane – $12.99 – Flor de Cana Rum, Myers Dark Rum, Passion Fruit & Orange Juices
    • Souvenir Cup – $14.99 / Refills – $11.99
  • Dasani – $3.69

While we didn’t try the beignets, we have seen they are not like traditional ones that many would expect, and instead are better described as beignet-like. They probably taste just fine – it’s hard to go wrong with fried dough and sugar – but an authentic experience they are not. For locals who have recently been to Busch Gardens and enjoyed their beignets as part of Mardi Gras and Food & Wine, there’s a marked difference in appearance.


#24 Mexican Market

Right next to Gulf Coast, Mexican Market serves up some south-of-the-border inspired dishes and some Mexican-based beverages.

  • Drunken Shrimp Tostada (GF) – $7.99 –  Tomato Aguachile, Cilantro & Avocado Crema
  • NEW! Beef Barbacoa Taco (GF) – $8.49
  • NEW! Mexican Roasted Corn (VF) – $5.99
  • Draft Beer – Modelo – $10.99 – Especial, Mexico
    • Souvenir Pilsner – $12.99 / Refills – $9.99
  • Hard Seltzer Corona Hard Seltzer – $8.49Tropical Lime, Blackberry Lime, Mango, or Cherry
  • Chelada-  Modelo Especial – $10.99 – Original or Mango Chile
  • Specialty Cocktail – Frozen Watermelon Margarita – $12.99 – Milagro Tequila, Watermelon, Lime
    • Souvenir Cup – $14.99 / Refills – $11.99

#25 Glacier Bar

Building on the success of the fan-favorite Flamecraft Bar, SeaWorld recently opened another full-service bar outside of Wild Arctic. This is already a popular spot to stop in for a drink or snack, and will continue to be once Ice Breaker opens nearby. For the Seven Seas Food Festival, Glacier Bar is featuring six rotating brews on tap and several cocktails. Additional beverages and snacks are available for purchase a la carte from the bar’s regular menu.

  • Draft Beer – $10.99 – 6 rotating Craft Brews
  • Cocktail – Sparkling Mojito – $12.99Flor de Caña Rum, Bar Draught Craft Mojito with Fresh Mint & Lime
  • Cocktail – Spicy Pineapple Margarita – $12.99 – Milagro Silver Tequila, Bar Draught Craft Spicy Margarita with Fresh Lime
  • Cocktail – Fire & Ice – $12.99 – Jack Daniels Fire Cinnamon Whiskey & Frozen Vanilla Coca-Cola ICEE





#26 Big Storm Brewing and Seltzer City

The final booth is located just behind Bayside Stadium, on the corner nearest Ice Breaker, the new roller coaster set to debut soon. Before and after concerts, expect this booth to be very popular. Earlier in the day or on non-concert days, it’s unlikely you’ll have any wait as the booth is so far removed from the rest of the event. We visited it on a Friday and saw hardly any guests head out to this spot. With such low traffic, we wouldn’t be surprised if the park decides to keep the booth closed on Fridays when there aren’t any concerts, so keep that in mind.

More Festival Fun

The food, drinks, and concerts are the main draws for Seven Seas Food Festival 2021 at SeaWorld Orlando, but they aren’t the only fun as part of the event. Look for strolling stilt walkers, local artists performing in the plaza around Sharks plaza, and more.

If you’re visiting on the weekend of February 19-21, be sure to stop by Wild Arctic Plaza between 12:30 and 6 p.m. for Mardi Gras festivities. At various times throughout the afternoon, you may catch a pop-up parade, street party, live music from a brass band, a DJ, and other fun performers handing out beads. There are also a few photo ops in the area to take the perfect picture.

  1. Any word on what they are doing with lanyards from last year? Since they had to close the park right in the middle of the event many people still have punches left. I know there are no refunds but I would hope they would still honor last years lanyards based on the circumstances.

    1. 2020 SeaWorld Orlando Seven Seas lanyards were honored at events through the end of the year including the Beer Festival and Christmas Celebration. They are no longer valid based on what we’ve heard from others who have asked at the park.
