Have Your Group Holiday Party at Capone’s Dinner Theater

Around Thanksgiving and Christmas is a great time to have a group holiday party. Whether you are planning an office party for work, a friendly get-together, or a family reunion, this is a great time of the year to come together as one big family. Who better than to help you make this a night to remember, than ‘the family’ at Capone’s Dinner & Show?!

In order to get the best group rate, 15 or more adults need to be in your party. If you don’t have that many, you’ll still get a good deal. After all, tickets are half-price online to start with! Load up your guest list with people of all ages. Capone’s Dinner & Show is fun for everyone. For a group rate, be sure to speak with one of the wise guys or gals at 407- 397-2378.

Advice for Parents Planning a Group Holiday Party

We do advise parents that our show script contains sexual innuendos similar to many comedy shows on prime-time television. For some parents, this is not acceptable. There are other dinner theaters you can plan your group holiday party at. Additionally, the action during the show is more comical than violent, but mobsters do use bats, toy guns and a prize launcher. Please use your own discretion as to what your child should experience. We have many glowing reviews from parents of children of all ages (and a few reviews, of course, that felt the show was not family-friendly).

Meet Jewell, one of Al's gals

Make your Group Happy

For your group holiday party, be sure to order one of the following:

  • Special Occasion Cake (in addition to regular dessert)
  • Dress-the-Part Costumes for Your Entire Gang
  • Souvenir Gifts for Everyone in Your Group

These items make the evening a little more special. Who doesn’t enjoy an extra dessert? A boa or fedora for everyone? That’s fun! Souvenirs will help those family members that ‘tip a few too many’ to remember the good time they had at the group holiday party for years to come!

If you want to be a high roller for the night of your group holiday party, upgrade to VIP tickets. You’ll receive early admission, choice seating, casino chips (for table games at Al’s Four Deuces Lounge) and other extras. A limited number of VIP upgrades are available each show so be sure to plan accordingly. Please note: Toddlers and infants 3 years and under are not allowed in the VIP section. Furthermore, children 5 years and under are not allowed up in the balcony, so be sure your VIP tickets are for the main floor if anyone in your party is 5 years old or younger.

Year-round Halloween at Capone’s (sort of)

There are many people that absolutely love Halloween. If you are one of those people, you should know Halloween at Capone’s happens year-round. Sort of. Here’s the rumble…

First, let’s make things clear. Halloween at Capone’s is celebrated only one night. However, many of the reasons this holiday is liked so much happen year-round at this Kissimmee dinner show. A few reasons for liking Halloween include:

  • free candy
  • excuse to party
  • opportunity to dress up and role-play
  • creative decorations
  • many other reasons

Halloween at Capone’s = An Original Outfit

Certainly, attending a dinner show is often thought of as a festive occasion. It isn’t something you do every night. And like any other festive occasion, the right clothes are very important. Capone’s Dinner & Show encourages people to ‘play-the-part’ and wear the ultimate “original outfit” – an outfit that fits the prohibition era. After all, we KNOW about outfits! Guests that dress up have more fun. Period. The original outfit is indeed a ritual for Halloween. It is also a ritual for many attending Capone’s any time of the year.

For example, here are just a few of the photos from guests dressing the part (photos submitted on Facebook):

Most importantly, wearing a costume allows people to let go of their inhibitions. Year-round Halloween at Capone’s does the same thing. Be that gangster or flapper girl and have fun pretending to be someone else. Moreover, wearing a costume can be extremely liberating! For some couples, it certainly offers a perfect time for romance. Need an excuse for a date night? Make reservations at Capone’s and come dressed for the occasion. Your girl will love that bad-boy gangster, and your guy will love that sexy kitten with the feather boa. It’s great for a date!

Halloween is an Excuse to Celebrate

Likewise, Halloween is a great excuse to party and celebrate. Have an anniversary? How about a birthday? Family reunion?  It doesn’t have to be Halloween at Capone’s to celebrate it! At Capone’s every night is a celebration. We recognize special occasions and various milestones and enjoy playing a part in whatever our guests are celebrating. Therefore, you need to let us know in advance. We advise including the celebration details in your order at the time you make your reservation as well as a follow-up call to our box office. Something this big should not be missed!

Free Prizes

Consequently, on the night of Halloween at Capone’s, you won’t receive a bag of candy, but there are prizes. On October 31st, every adult guest receives a special gift and kids get a gangster hat to wear. However, every night of the year the gangster give-away hands out numerous prizes. Guests feel like it is trick-or-treating every night of the year. Some win the treat, and some do not. What is the trick to winning a prize? Attend the show and discover it for yourself.

Have a Historic Halloween

Halloween goes back to an ancient Celtic custom. The tradition of Halloween came to the United States in 1840, with the arrival of a group of Irish immigrants. From there it slowly evolved into our modern-day version. The history of Halloween is quite interesting, and you may want to read all about it (click the link).

Finally, if the prohibition era is appealing to you, Halloween at Capone’s is the place to be any day of the year. Make a historic visit to Capone’s theater. You’ll swear you’ve stepped back in time. Play the role and get into the act. You’ll have a blast and your visit will be a treat you’ll remember for years to come.

Magic in Orlando with Magic Dinner Shows & More

Central Florida is truly magical, with a lot of magic in Orlando – from magic shows to Magical Dining, Magic Basketball, magic theme parks & more. It seems people can’t get enough magic. Visitors to the Central Florida area often think it is a magical place. After all, Magic Kingdom is here! However, there is a lot more ‘pixie dust’ spread all around the city in various forms.


Al would like to point out that there is NO magic performed at Capone’s Dinner & Show. After the exposure to all of the other pixie dust in the area, this is often a welcomed relief. No tricks. No sleight-of-hand. No disappearing act. No straight jackets to escape out of (maybe handcuffs or cement shoes – you never know about those wise guys). Capone’s offers plain ol’ gangster fun and a speakeasy cabaret. However, there is one magical thing about Capone’s… make reservations online and bad-a-boom! Tickets are half price!

A Little History of Magic in Orlando

Cinderella Castle at Magic KingdomFirst, let’s start at the beginning (sort of). Magic Kingdom opened on October 1 in 1971. It was the first of four theme parks at the resort. Guests experience fairy tales and Disney characters in many magical ways. Starting with the Cinderella Castle. It was inspired by the fairy tale castle seen in the 1950 film and became real when the park was built. This Orlando theme park has created a lot of magic. In 2018, the park hosted 20.859 million visitors. This makes it the most visited theme park in the world for the thirteenth consecutive year and the most visited theme park in North America for at least the past nineteen years.

Orlando Magic BasketballSecondly, in 1989, the Orlando Magic basketball franchise was established. Notable NBA stars include Shaquille O’Neal, Penny Hardaway, Patrick Ewing, Grant Hill, Tracy McGrady, Dwight Howard, and many others. As of 2019, the franchise has played in the NBA playoffs for exactly half of its existence (15 playoff appearances in 30 years). The team has been to the NBA Finals twice (1995 and 2009). The games are a lot of fun to attend and fans expect a lot more magic to come.

The Wizarding World of Harry PotterThirdly, Universal Studios brought about its own magical world in 2010. The Wizarding World of Harry Potter opened and has now expanded its intrigue throughout both parks. Magic wands are purchased in shops. Restaurants feature entrées and drinks featured in the magic-filled Harry Potter books/movies. Rides and décor are found throughout Universal Studios offering numerous magical experiences.

 

The Other Magical Orlando

Once the Magic Kingdom opened, many other magical places appeared. Smaller attractions such as Magical Midway offer fun all their own. Magical hotels and diners opened their doors. Magic Castle Inn & Suites was just one of the many hotels that included the magic name. Villages, vacation homes, and timeshares came on the scene and still exist. Even Carnival Cruiseline has a ship with the magic name.

Magicians in Orlando

Magic in Orlando by Jimmy Ichihana

With all of the magic opportunities in Orlando, it was just a matter of time before the area produced some great magicians. Just recently, Orlando magician Jimmy Ichihana made his second appearance on ‘Penn & Teller: Fool Us.’ While he is not performing on television, Ichihana is part of the “See Magic Live” team. He has performed at Boxi Park in Lake Nona and is scheduled to appear at Christner’s Prime Steak & Lobster on September 28 at “An Evening of Magic” dinner show. This exclusive restaurant offers an Orlando magic dinner show once a month on Friday & Saturday nights. Various magicians perform. The cost is not for the average diner. Plan on spending at least $150 per person.

Spellbinding Magic

In conclusion, there is no shortage of magic in Orlando. Some magical experiences come at a higher price than others. A number of them last all day, while others for only an hour or two. Some will have you cheering and screaming – others sleeping like a baby. Despite what type of magic you are searching for, just wave your wand over Orlando. Okay…so it won’t magically appear, but it will reveal itself without a lot of hocus-pocus. Above all, the spell of great memories is certain to last a lifetime!
