SeaWorld's new vacation packages (http://seaworldparks.com/en/seaworld-orlando/Park-Info/Region/Vacation-Packages)include both the All-Day Dining Deal (http://seaworldparks.com/en/seaworld-orlando/Dine-and-Shop/Dining/All-Day-Dining-Deal)and QuickQueue Unlimited for vacation packages booked at one of the park's six "on site" hotels:

Doubletree by Hilton Orlando at SeaWorld
Fairfield Inn & Suites Orlando at SeaWorld
Hilton Garden Inn Orlando at SeaWorld
Hilton Grand Vacations at SeaWorld
Renaissance Orlando at SeaWorld
SpringHill Suites Orlando at SeaWorld

The packages also include free transportation to SeaWorld, Aquatica, Discovery Cove and the Universal Orlando theme parks. (No free transportation to Disney, though.) SeaWorld's also offering a third night free on a two-night hotel stay, along with the free dining, for packages booked at several other partner hotels.

SeaWorld's facing the toughest market right now, among the Orlando-area theme parks. Disney's got four decades of inertia as the market leader behind it and Universal's got the momentum of Harry Potter. SeaWorld has... a rethemed Shamu show (with the trainers still out of the water) and some evening entertainment and drink festivals. Nice, but hardly enough to compete with Disney and Universal without discounting. So SeaWorld's combined the best of its competitors' hotel discounts in the hope that will draw some Orlando visitors to its parks.
