The Seven Seas Food Festival

Every weekend from mid-February through May you can head over to Sea World for a fantastic culinary event. A fleet of food trucks and booths from around the world has opened in the park. You can find new flavors, enjoy local craft beers and on Saturdays and Sundays there’s even live music! Bon Apatite.

These are some of the extra experiences you can find in Orlando this march. And even when you don’t need the extra incentive to take a trip, its nice to know that the parks have gone the extra mile to bring a little more magic to your next Orlando vacation! Hope to see you real soon.
