Last fall, SEA LIFE Orlando offered Mermaid Weekends, and it was so much fun, the mermaids will be returning for a limited time this summer.

Out and About: The Weeki Wachee Mermaids Visit SEA LIFE Orlando
I told you earlier this month about SEA LIFE Orlando hosting visits from the world-famous Weeki Wachee Mermaids, and last weekend, I had the chance to check it out for myself.
The lovely mermaids swam hourly throughout the day in the aquarium’s Pacific Ocean tank, to the delight of guests of all ages. The children were especially awed by the aquatic ladies, who interacted with them through the glass.

Meet The Octonauts at SEA LIFE Orlando Aquarium
Captain Barnacles and Kwazii of The Octonauts, a popular animated children’s television show on Disney Jr., will visit SEA LIFE Orlando Aquarium weekends September 16 though October 30.
The Octonauts are a team of undersea adventure heroes who rescue and protect sea creatures in trouble. During each television episode, viewers are able to learn about a variety of marine life as The Octonauts study facts about sea animals and their ocean habitats.
The Orlando Eye Remains Closed on I-Drive
It’s been over a week since The Orlando Eye shut down for what a Merlin rep called “required maintenance,” and there is still no re-opening date.
The 400-foot observation wheel has closed several times since its opening in May for various repairs, but its usually only taken a day or two at most to reopen.
Out and About: SEA LIFE Aquarium Brings World’s Oceans to Orlando
In a city full of attractions and theme parks, one thing Orlando has been lacking is a quality aquarium. With the opening this week of SEA LIFE Aquarium, that is no longer the case.
We had the chance to check it out during a recent media preview, and we thoroughly enjoyed it.
Upon entering SEA LIFE, you pass a photo op area. Photos taken here will later be digitized into CGI settings like being underwater with fish, then ready for purchase at the end of the attraction. You then enter a cute round theater, with a video running on the ceiling.
