In IE, the background color is seamless, but in Safari, there's a very definite break (see screenshot).

How can I accommodate this in my stylesheet or is there something I need to be doing that's not happening which would give me the seamless background color after the top gradient?

Try this:

Remove the backgrounds from #wrapper, #right_cloud, and #left_cloud divs.

Then use this for the html and body:

html, body {
    background: url("images/right_cloud.jpg") no-repeat fixed left top;
    -webkit-background-size: cover;
    -moz-background-size: cover;
    -o-background-size: cover;
    background-size: cover;
    height: 100%;
    margin: 0;
}

The idea is to spread the cloud background to always fill the browser window.

I looked at this site in Safari, Chrome and Firefox on a Mac and all showed the hard line between the cloud background and the solid color.

On a side note, you should familiarize yourself with the COPPA guidelines. Essentially, any identifiable information of minors should be secured behind a password.
