Mira costa guests have their own entrance but it doesn’t open until 10am. Before that time you will use the happy 15 line at the main entrance. If you can’t find it, just ask a cast member and show them your happy 15 slip and they will direct you where to go!

The positive for Sea is that only the three deluxe hotels get the happy 15 so it semi cuts down on the amount of people waiting for it. – Megan
