The Five Best Orlando Dinner Shows The Whole Family Will Love

When most people think of Orlando, they can’t help but think of Disney. Perhaps Universal Studios or SeaWorld are close seconds, but most people who travel to Central Florida are after the Walt Disney World experience. For those who are after more than just a cartoon mouse, however, there’s a rich variety of experiences to explore. One of the great things that Orlando has to offer is its amazing selection of dinner theater.

When visiting Orlando, you can’t help but notice the huge advertisements for amazing-looking dinner shows. When you drive down I-4, you’ll see a barrage of billboards touting theaters with creative themes, beautiful imagery, and obvious entertainment value. The more you explore the city, the more you’ll note the selection. So how do you choose the best option for your family? Here are the five best Orlando dinner shows the whole family will love.

Pirates Dinner Adventure

This amazing show truly lives up to its name. It’s highly interactive and includes a fully rigged pirate ship with some decidedly bloodthirsty pirates, a kidnapped princess, and tons of swashbuckling action! There are also life-size dragons to thrill young and old alike. Admission to Pirates Dinner Adventure includes an appetizer, main course, and dessert. Get there early for a bit of pre-show magical entertainment, as well as a pirate cocktail and appetizer buffet. There are also themed shows around Halloween and Christmas if you’re in the area for the holidays.

Capone’s Dinner & Show

Join the gang in 1930s Chicago as you sit back and enjoy some gangster action, musical stylings, and fun audience participation games. Featuring delicious all-you-can-eat Italian fare, the menu includes a pasta bar, New York- and Chicago-style pizza, lasagna, and much more. Before you can even enter Capone’s Dinner & Show, you’ll have to knock three times and give the secret password. Remember, this is the era of Prohibition, and Capone and company are wary of coppers.

The Outta Control Magic Comedy Dinner Show

If you’ve ever driven down International Drive in Orlando, you’ve seen the giant WonderWorks, the building that is completely upside down. Inside this architectural oddity is a zany show your family will love. The Outta Control Magic Comedy Dinner Show offers exactly what the name suggests. Guests enjoy pizza and unlimited beer, wine, or soft drinks as showman Tony Brent dazzles the audience with his hugely entertaining impressions, improv, and magic tricks. It’s perfect for those staying at IHG hotels near WonderWorks along I-Drive.

Medieval Times Dinner & Tournament

An oldie but a goodie, this is the one show that you may have caught elsewhere, as there’s more than one venue around the country. The whole family will feel like members of King Arthur’s court as they watch amazing horsemanship, glorious jousting, and breathtaking stunts being performed by the knights at Medieval Times. During the show, you’ll enjoy a four-course meal with chicken and ribs but without silverware! There’s a reason this show is a classic, as it’s the perfect family evening out and guaranteed to thrill the adults as much as the children.

Hoop-Dee-Doo Musical Revue

Channel your inner Annie Oakley and join in the fun in this pioneer-themed show. The Hoop-Dee-Doo Musical Revue features traditional American cuisine such as barbecue ribs and fried chicken, and you’ll feel like you belong in a little house on the prairie. The show takes place at The Campsites at Disney’s Fort Wilderness Resort & Campground, and reservations and pre-payment are a must. This is perfect for families who want to really experience all that Disney has to offer.

Whatever you’re after, Orlando has amazing activities to keep every second of your day filled with fun and magic. If you have a spare few hours in the evening, try one of these five Orlando dinner shows the whole family will love.
