Busch Gardens Offers Free Admission to Veterans & Families

Busch Gardens Offers Free Admission to Veterans & Families

It’s not a teacher’s discount, I know. I promise to stay on the hunt.

But! Let’s celebrate that, as a part of their Waves of Honor program, both Busch Gardens and SeaWorld are granting those who serve in the armed forces free admission for individual and up to 3 guests.

Offer must be redeemed by June 27th.

And don’t forget about the SeaWorld Teacher Discount Card.

To see details about the SeaWorld card–and other Orlando discounts–visit our Orlando Area Discounts page.

This is a popular event, where kids can take pictures, meet K-9s, and enjoy shaved ice. 

Afterward, they’re encouraged to participate in Open Play, inside the gym. For those who haven’t had the pleasure, Ready Set Play is an indoor playground for kids crawling up to 49in. They boast 3,000sqft of play space, with a padded safe zone for babies.

I took mine there this week. She had a blast, and I enjoyed the cafe/lounge, as well as the free wifi. 


For parents and friends of littles in St. Augustine, drop into Ready Set Play on May 8th for a local law enforcement meet-and-greet.

Sheraton Orlando North- Public Servant Discount

We’re pleased to announce that we’ve negotiated a Public Servant discount with the Sheraton Orlando North for the remainder of 2019–possibly into 2020. In addition, the hefty discount in their rate agreement with us is offered year-round.

This property offers a quiet and relaxing location on the Northern end of Orlando. Aside from easy access to I-4 and all parks, the Sheraton North boasts a variety of nearby attractions.

Firstly- Wekiwa Springs State Park, sure to entertain for a day of fun in nature with the family, is a few short miles from the hotel. Rent a kayak or canoe for endless exploration upstream, then swim in the crystal clear waters and underwater caves in Wekiwa Springs.

Round out the day with a picnic on the banks and this excursion is sure to exhaust the family and leave them with beautiful pictures, experiences, and memories.

Entertainment, Arts, and Fine Dining

In addition, Downtown Orlando is approximately 10 minutes from the hotel and is host to several attractions. These include the Orlando Science Center and Orlando Magic’s Stadium. Building up an appetite? Enjoy tapas bars like Santiago’s Bodega and the swanky nightlife and watering holes on Church Street.


Overwhelmed with Orlando’s attractions? Spend a relaxing Saturday with the family at the Winter Park Farmer’s Market.

More Nurture

Kayaking and Farmer’s Marketing with the family can be mentally and physically draining. Therefore, a must for any guest of the Sheraton North is an evening visit to its very own An Tobar. Adjacent to the hotel’s lobby, An Tobar is the spirit of Ireland; every piece–including its 60-foot bar, booths, and tables–was constructed out of solid wood in Ireland, shipped over, and lovingly installed by a team of craftsmen. Enjoy traditional pub fare and Guinness on tap at the largest Irish pub in Central Florida, before stumbling up to your room to retire for the night.

Health and Wellness

After waking up in the morning feeling surprisingly great, you decide to hit the gym. Is there a gym a hotel, you say? Well yes, there is, and quite an impressive one!

Something for Everyone

Whatever it is you’re visiting Orlando for- the property sure to offer activities for everyone in the family, and the Public Servant Discount at the Sheraton Orlando North can’t be beat. We’d love to hear your feedback once you’ve visited. Make sure to check out our other Orlando properties as well- the Grand Orlando Resort at Celebration and the Doubletree by Hilton at Seaworld.
