Wednesday morning the Sesame Street attraction opened to the public at SeaWorld Orlando, I got a sneak peek Tuesday. Tiptoeing through through nostalgic memories that were tucked away yet seemingly coming back to life. I have tips for your own experience below.

Muppet character's Elmo, Rosalita, and Abby opened the preview, "One, two, three! Open Sesame!"

It features the park's first and only parade led by Big Bird and 11 other characters.

Seeing Big Bird and Burt and Ernie made me giddy.

The rides were age-appropriate; an entry-level for toddlers all the way up to young kids, but even the big kids are entertained. Food trucks tantalize the preschool palate and grown-up taste buds alike.

"You can walk down Sesame Street for the first time, you can walk into Mr. Hooper's Store, visit the 1-2-3 stoop, see Abby's garden, Big Bird's Nest, one of my favorite spots is Big Bird's Nest," says Amanda Trauger, SeaWorld Orlando spokesperson.

Sesame Street Tips

1) Character Photos - The characters are out and about pretty often. But you can always get a photo in the Photos with Elmo and friends in the theater.

2) Elmo Bubble Wands - You'll want to grab your kid an Elmo Bubble Wand. They combine learning and fun and work with interactives all over the park (Like the Harry Potter Wands at Universal Studios Orlando).

3) Big Bird's Nest - Is a great place to take a selfie or two. It also features a daily Storytime with Big Bird.

4) Rides - There are six of them. Abby’s Flower Tower, Cookie Drop!, Slimey’s Slider, Big Bird’s Twirl ‘n’ Whirl, Elmo’s Choo Choo Train and Super Grover’s Box Car Derby.

5) Splash pad - Rubber Duckie Water Works is a perfect place to cool off in the park. Be sure to pack a dry set of clothes, sunscreen and plastic bags to put wet garments.

6) Parade - The best place to watch the parade is right on the corner in front of the laundromat. You get to see Big Bird as he comes around the corner leading the Sesame Street Party Parade.

7) Oscar The Grouch's Trash Can - Knock on Oscar's trash can. He will have some strong words for you!
