Mango’s dinner show is now open in Orlando on International Drive. If you close your eyes, you’ll think you are in Miami or a warm, tropical Latin destination. Open your eyes and you’ll think you are in New York or Las Vegas! This Orlando dinner show is a visual treat and as vibrant as shows come.
The live music (and DJ spun tunes) are primarily Latin in flavor with a lot of disco blended in. The dancers and performers are dazzling, not to mention beautiful and in excellent physical condition. How else can they salsa like that?! The longer Mango’s dinner show is open, the better the entertainment will get and more performers will be added to their lineup, especially if the Miami Mango’s location is any indication. That iconic Ocean Drive location has become world famous amongst those that love to party in Miami.
Mango’s Dinner Show Now Open in Orlando
Now that the party is open in Orlando, what can you expect? Mango’s dinner show touts of being a family-friendly show. While children are allowed, they must leave the premises by 10:30 p.m. The laser lights, colorful atmosphere and costumes will be an attraction for children, however, it is the young adults that will truly enjoy this experience. Older seniors will enjoy it if they are of the dancing nature and don’t mind louder music. Think Vegas – not a place to have a nice conversation over dinner – but a lively show with lots of energy. Be sure to catch the Michael Jackson show – you’ll love the choreography and authenticity.
