Each weekend has a new theme for animal lovers to enjoy beginning with the wild man in khakis, himself.

Hanna hosts the first weekend where he'll talk to guests about his many animal adventures and exotic travels. There are also opportunities to dine with Hanna for breakfast and dinner at an additional fee.

On this weekend, SeaWorld Animal Ambassador Julie Scardina shares her love of penguins with guests and showcases a collection of wildlife with a few surprises along the way.
January 30-31: "Sea Rescue" Weekend
Guests can hear first-hand accounts of the more than 27,000 animals over 50 years and stories that are featured on the Saturday-morning ABC TV series "Sea Rescue."
Every Wild Days Weekend will included a 30-minute, educational "Ocean Discovery" killer whale presentation, as well as what it takes to care for SeaWorld's animals during the "Inspiring Stories" pre-shows.
There are also plenty of opportunities for animal meet and greets and interactive activities in the "Explore Zones" throughout the park where guests can learn about conservation through a variety of hands-on experiences.
