Sheikra Busch Gardens Must Do's

17 Busch Gardens Must Do’s You Have to Experience

Do you have a Busch Gardens must do list?

I do!

Busch Gardens is a must do theme park in Florida. This amazing park is over 335 acres with more than 2000 animals onsite.

Busch Gardens has a special place in my heart because it was where I rode my first roller coaster, the Python, in 1994. I remember being terrified, but courageous enough to experience this roller coaster. Busch Gardens was also the first theme park I was allowed to do without direct adult supervision.

Now that you understand my love of the park, let’s look at some of my Busch Gardens must do’s!

Disney Mobile Ordering—Skip the Line After the Ride!

It’s about that time!

You can finally see the end of the line to the Walt Disney World ride you’ve been dying to ride or re-ride for the 100th time and soon, you’ll be diving, looping, and rushing through complete Walt Disney bliss. You’re excited (and rightfully so!) until you hear that deep rumbling noise coming from your stomach reminding you that in all your thrill-seeking and sight-seeing, you haven’t eaten a thing.

Getting out of line is certainly no option after a 45+ minute wait and between waiting out the rest of this line, enjoying the ride, walking to your preferred food stop at the day, and waiting in that line, ordering your food, and waiting to get it you’ll be starved by the time you finally eat!

Thankfully, Disney World listens and has a solution for us hungry theme park visitors. The Mobile Food and Beverage Ordering service by Disney World lets you order your meal ahead of time from the convenience of your phone (think FastPass+, but with food).
