25 Years of Hilton Grand Vacations at SeaWorld

A quarter century’s worth of memories made

The year 1995 brings to mind different things for different people. Sports fans will remember it as the year the San Francisco 49ers destroyed the San Diego Chargers 49 to 26 in Super Bowl XXIX. Depending on your age, the movies Toy Story or Braveheart will have you feeling nostalgic. And music buffs will remember it as the year the artist Seal swept the Grammy Awards with his song Kiss From a Rose.          

At Hilton Grand Vacations, we'll recall it as the year that we laid roots in Orlando, Florida with the grand opening of Hilton Grand Vacations at SeaWorld® resort. 

"This October is a very special month for us as we celebrate a huge milestone for one of our original properties opened 25 years ago. We've achieved this milestone through our team

members' hard work and dedication and by creating a family culture. We set an example for others to make a difference for memories that last a lifetime for our Owners, Guests and Team Members. We've always enjoyed creating life-long memories and look forward to continuing this legacy. Here's to another 25 years!"

Since then, this Bermuda-inspired Orlando resort has grown from two guest buildings to a multi-use property which includes 33 acres, an on-site movie theater, a nature trail, 330 team members and 2,700 Owners and Guests staying with us on any given day. 

Located directly across the street from SeaWorld Orlando, and a hop and a skip away from the area's world-famous attractions, it's easy to see why Owners and Guests can't get enough of Hilton Grand Vacations at SeaWorld. Whether you use this ideally located resort as your launchpad to explore The City Beautiful or relax in one of the colorful gardens or stunning pools, you simply won't want to leave. 

"From the moment we step onto the property, we're greeted with smiles. Now, they're familiar faces, which is the best feeling."

— Fallon S., Hilton Grand Vacations at SeaWorld Owner since 2017 

From our family to yours, we thank you for an incredible 25 years.
