I used them in 2011, and they were great! We went to Orlando and enjoyed Seaworld, got free preferred parking, huge discount on Discovery Cove, then two times Busch Gardens and Water Country in Williamsburg as well. It's a great deal! Thinking about buying them again this year, since we're going to Williamsburg now in August with a friend.

We purchased our SG passes in August 12 when visiting Sesame Place. We took advantage of the next year free deal. So we purchased 2013 passes in 2012 but could use them both years. It has been fantastic!

If I buy the Super Grover passes before the discount ends, can I activate them after the discount ends? I most likely can activate them at Sesame Place, though my kids may give me the ugh. Also, if I can't get DH with me, can I still activate his?

Thanks, we will definitely be taking advantage of it this year.

Yes you can activate them later but unless things have changed they are good for 2013 only so delaying activation doesn't buy you more time. As for activating someone's who's not with you it probably just depends on the person at guest services. Some will ask where everyone is, others will just activate them. Of course you can activate SG passes at any seaworld park so I'm not sure why it matters.

I wish I knew of this pass before I switched over my Driver License to Florida. I thought maybe I could use a loophole and ship them to my parents house. Would love the option of having season pass to Aquatica and Seaworld since I already go there, but would of loved to have a reason to goto tempa bay for bush gardens and adventure island.

So is there a Florida Resident type deal like this?

Going to Disney at the end of the year. Plan on getting the Sea World Fun Card again and re-visiting Universal later week. So outside of those three, anyway of joining them to visit other parks in a joint seasonal pass?

Question: so if I buy one of these Super grover passes does that give you discounts to DC for all family members?

Sea World Orlando offers a pass that offers access to:

SeaWorld Orlando + Aquatica + Busch Gardens - $229 pp

Or the Platinum pass for all 9 parks is $329 pp/year

You can get the Platinum pass for $499 for 2 years through Busch Gardens Tampa

The two year Platinum pass through Busch Gardens Williamsburg is $360.00 - I am not sure if there are state restrictions. They also let you pay on a monthly basis.

You do get discounts to Discovery Cove with the passes, but it looks like only during certain dates in 2013...e.g. I found this on the Sea World passport member page:

Buying a grover pass from the UK

I live in the UK and tried to purchase the super grover pass but the website will not let me. I can get a friend to purchase for me using their address and credit card, if they do this will I be able to pick up the pass?, what ID do I need to have? If I purchased one for my daughter (3 year old) would she also need ID?

Children do not need ID. I'd imagine your passport would be sufficient for ID for yourself. I know folks who have had relatives buy their passes, shouldn't be any different for you.

I had the same problem, but there is actually nothing in the terms preventing foreign residents to buy these passes, so I e-mailed customer service and they processed it manually for me.

What exactly do you get with the Super Grover Pass?

We want to go to SW, A & BG (FL) and DC first week of June. I looked on the Sesame site, it wasn't clear. Do you get free preferred parking at all these parks? What kind of food discounts? Can you use the food discount on All day dining?

Can I buy just one pass to use for the parking and discounts or do we all have to have the pass?

Thanks
