Dine with Shamu

Sorry, not WDW related, but we are ending our trip with one day at Sea World. Has anyone ever gone to the Dine with Shamu? How was it? Our kids are 5 and 7…

We haven’t done it but friends did it when visiting wdw. Their kid aged 8 ish loved it. It was all he talked about. Any time I brought the conversation back to wdw he wasn’t interested at all. It was the highlight of his vacation. . It was also their first time to wdw. We visited seaworld after them but decided it was not for us but my kids are older.
