In order to participate in the “Passport to Summer” program, pass members should visit the theme parks and collect a voucher for each of their visits at a self-service kiosk, guest relations ticketing window or passholder lounge (SeaWorld Orlando). Once a pass member reaches a specific reward level, rewards can then be printed and redeemed at the select locations in the park.

The “Passport to Summer” program runs through June 30 at SeaWorld Orlando and through Aug. 6 at Busch Gardens Tampa Bay. The theme parks said the program is not valid for Fun Card, Florida Teacher Card, Preschool Card or Friends & Family passholders.
