Parents of the very youngest Floridians have a sweet deal coming their way! Busch Gardens has changed the eligibility for their Preschool Card, meaning kids five and younger can enjoy free admission to Busch Gardens and SeaWorld | Orlando until Dec. 31, 2018 with the Preschool Card. If you’ve already signed up for the SeaWorld Orlando preschool card that was offered earlier, you will automatically be upgraded to reflect the addition of Busch Gardens Tampa Bay now as well.

There’s plenty to do at Busch Gardens, even for the tiniest visitors! Choose from many kid-friendly rides and roller coasters, such as the Air Grover to the Jungle Flyers zipline. Over at Sesame Street Friends, kids can climb in Elmo’s tree house or splash in Bert and Ernie’s Watering Hole. And in the award-winning Jungala area, little ones can clamber through nets, bridges, crawl tubes and a multi-level maze, and cool down from their exertions in the splash area.

For animal lovers, there are numerous opportunities to play with, feed and observe animals close up and in the Serengeti. Music lovers will have plenty to occupy them too, with live tunes Monday through Saturday. There's also all-new live entertainment, including the Real Music Real Masters series, an ice skating show, and Rock-a-Doo-Wop.

To get in on this great deal for your family, you'll need to register online before going to the park. Then redeem the pass at a Busch Gardens Tampa Bay or SeaWorld Orlando ticket counter, and make sure you have your registration confirmation, your child’s birth certificate or passport, and your Florida resident ID handy. Remember: a school ID will not do the trick! Even if your child turns 6 in a couple of months, you can still enjoy this offer as long as your child is 5 or younger at the time you redeem your pass for the first visit. Older siblings and parents, make sure you get the Fun Card, which allows you to pay for a day and come back to play all year long!

You can also add Adventure Island to your Preschool Card for just $59.99. Consider that a regular ticket to Busch Gardens starts at $89.99, and you can see what a great deal this could be for your family all year long! So jump online to or quickly—these offers are only available until May 20th!
