Feeling hungry? You will be, because SeaWorld Orlando's Seven Seas Food Festival is back, inviting you to dive into a fun-filled experience with international foods, craft brews and a diverse concert lineup. Better still, the festival has been extended by an extra two weeks through April 29! Before you set sail, check out our itinerary featuring seven must-sees at this tasty adventure.

1. International Markets

At this year's edition, you'll find 12 International Markets throughout the park. Market options include All-American, Asian, Brazilian, Caribbean, Florida, German, Gulf Coast, Mediterranean, Mexican, North Atlantic, Pacific Coast and Polynesian.

2. Barbecue

From Feb. 17 through Mar. 25, barbecue joins the food lineup! Dishes are slated to include a Smokehouse Colossal BBQ Sandwich, Pulled Pork Egg Roll and even a Southern Waffle Sundae, topped with baked beans, cheese, onion strings and a choice of pulled short rib or buffalo chicken.

3. Latin-Inspired Cuisine

Similar to barbecue's limited run, markets featuring Latin-inspired dishes will be available from Mar. 31 through Apr. 15. You'll be able to enjoy everything from traditional dishes, such as Mofongo with Carne Frita, to innovative offerings like Empanadilla de Pizza.

4. Mouth-Watering Desserts

Save room for dessert — and a lot of it. Some standouts we're most looking forward to include Dark Chocolate Guinness Mousse Parfait (Mediterranean Market), Bingsu Salted Vanilla Ice Cream (topped with caramel popcorn; Asian Market) and Papaya Candy (Caribbean Market).

5. Craft Beverages

In addition to food, the Seven Seas Food Festival features craft beer, wine and nonalcoholic options galore. One of the tastiest in the latter category is the Asian Market's Sparkling Pear, a house-made concoction with pear nectar, ginger ale, simple syrup and lemon.

6. Live Music

Every Saturday and Sunday throughout the festival's run, you can enjoy live performances from top country, rock and Latin music stars at the park's Bayside Stadium. Details of this year's lineup, which will feature 18 musicians in all, are expected soon.

7. New Ways to Have Fun

If you haven't visited SeaWorld in a while, you'll find some new thrills waiting for you. First, the Kraken roller coaster has gotten a virtual-reality upgrade to become Kraken Unlashed, taking you on a deep-sea mission alongside creatures inspired by extinct and legendary beasts of the past. Also, the Dolphin Nursery has also been enhanced with larger viewing windows and more levels.
