Red Lobster Seaside Express Lunch - Meals Under $10

Red Lobster is now offering Seaside Express Lunches at 2 Orlando locations including Sanford and Fashion Square.  The goal is great food at a great price (under $10) served quickly between 11 am and 2 pm.  This is the perfect solution for those that only get a limited amount of time for a lunch break from work.

How it works is like this:
  1. Walk up to a kiosk, place your order and pay (you will be given a order # to place in the stand at your table)
  2. If you ordered a drink, you will help yourself and then take a seat
  3. Place your order card into the stand
  4. Someone will bring your food out to you with a smile (7-10 minutes is the goal)

What I love about the menu is that meals start at only $6.99 and you get to choose a side, soup or salad to go with it.  You also get one of their wonderful cheddar bay biscuit too.  I highly recommend the lobster flatbread.  It was delicious !  Also the Sweet Chili Coco Shrimp is amazing and I will definitely get that when I go back next time.

Another great promotion they are running is the "Catch a Free Lunch" cards.  After buying 5 meals, you will get the 6th one free !!!  What an amazing deal since the price of each meal is already so low.

So what are you waiting for?  Plan your next lunch at Red Lobster and enjoy their new Seaside Express Lunch !!!

When my kids were little, we used to do this multiple times each year.  It was our favorite place to "trick or treat". They would wear their costumes to the park and fill their Halloween bags full of candy !!!

You too can join in on the fun every weekend in October at SeaWorld for silly, spooky fun at Halloween Spooktacular. During this daytime event, families will be immersed in an underwater "fantasea" filled with trick-or-treating, dancing with sea fairies and pumpkin fish and sea-themed arts and crafts.
SeaWorld’s Halloween Spooktacular takes place weekends in October: 5-6, 12-13, 19-20 and 26-27, from 12 to 8 p.m., leaving the littlest of trick-or-treaters wide-eyed for all of the fun-filled activities. Halloween Spooktacular is included with park admission.

Spooktacular Highlights Include:

NEW this year: Spooktacular Dance Party
Princess Penelope and her undersea friends invite guests to join the Spooktacular Dance Party, where children can dance along to a Spooktacular mix of line-dancing favorites as clouds of bubbles fill the evening air.

Waves of Trick-or-Treat Fun
Offering more than two million pieces of sweet treats, costumed youngsters can trick-or-treat “under the sea.” Each trick-or-treat station features an assortment of ghoulish goodies including Tootsie Roll, Jelly Belly jelly beans, Airheads and other candy favorites.
