Capone’s Dinner Show Re-Opening July 11!

Al with maskDue to the recent surge of COVID-19 cases, we have made the decision to not re-open at this time. Thank you for your understanding. If you have questions, please call the box office at 407-397-2378. Stay safe everyone!

 

It’s time to get this party re-started! Capone’s Dinner Show will be re-opening Saturday, July 11, 2020. We had to shut the party down just as we were getting into our 28th Anniversary Celebration. Well, no more! We’re re-opening better than ever.

What’s New – 6 Things to Note

  1. When waiting outside in line, you will need to stay 6 feet behind the party in front of you. By now, we figure you know what this space is, but if you need help, a masked wise guy will beat it in to remind you. Speaking of masks, guests will be required to wear one to enter, while moving about the theater, and during the performance portion of the evening.
  2. No loitering in the gift shop. As much as we’d love for you to be able to case the joint browse, this is not a realistic option during this time. Only a few guests will be allowed in the lobby at a time. You can still pre-order costume accessories and have them waiting for you with your ticket order.
  3. Gone is the serve-yourself-buffet. A 4-course dinner will replace it, served by Al’s finest. Enjoy appetizers, bread & salad, entrée/sides and dessert, and of course unlimited hooch drinks. Select your own appetizer & entrée from an Italian/American dinner menu fit for any mob boss. In fact, Al says, “Don’t yous worry none. There’ll be plenty of favorites on the menu. More entrée selections than any other area dinner show!” Portions will still be plentiful. A child’s menu will be available, as well as options for those with dietary restrictions.
  4. Capone’s Dinner Show re-opening plans also include social distancing for guests inside the speakeasy. Tables are spread out providing plenty of sneezing breathing room. We are following all CDC guidelines, including capacity limits.
  5. Guest/Cast interaction will be limited. However, bantering, talking back, having a nice conversation with the cast will still be welcomed. After all, our wise guys and gals are the best in the business when it comes to improv comedy and one-liners. Don’t expect an attitude change.
  6. Guest mug shots will still be available, however, photos with the cast will not happen at this time. As much as Bunny-June would love to smother you with appreciation for coming to see her, it will not be allowed. Nor will the wise guys get too close with their threats, guns, friendly gestures.

Welcome Back to Our Joint

Our gang cannot wait to welcome you back. Join us in celebrating our re-opening and our 28th anniversary. The party will resume and the gangster giveaway prizes will be better than ever. There will be slight modifications to the show, but nothing to ‘snap a cap’ out. As Al would say, Prohibition [COVID-19] has made nothing but trouble.” Let’s get back to having a blast from like we did in the past!


Al’s a generous guy. He’s still offering tickets at 50% Off. Get the coupon.

Orlando Area Dinner Shows Remain Closed

Orlando area dinner shows remain closed due to the Coronavirus pandemic. Theaters sit empty. Employees have either been laid off or furloughed. Performers, servers and guest service staff wait eagerly for the return of laughter, cheers, action and guest interaction. How will that look when our beloved dinner shows reopen? Nobody is for certain until there is a vaccination for Covid-19, but here are a few things the wise guys at Capone’s Dinner & Show anticipate.

Buffet Service at Orlando Area Dinner Shows

Prior to the State mandate to shut down mid-March, buffet service at Capone’s had already adapted to a new way of doing things. Instead of guests helping themselves at the buffet, employees assisted guests by dishing out their selections for them. This prevented multiple people from handling utensils. No doubt, traditional buffet service is a thing of the past until a solution for Covid-19 is available to the public.

Orlando area dinner shows Buffet Line

No doubt, buffet service will change for all Orlando area dinner shows and restaurants until a vaccine is available.

Guest Spacing

We also anticipate guests being spread further apart when shows are able to resume. This will be welcomed by some guests who like to distance themselves from other parties. However, those that enjoyed interacting with others next to them or across the table may have to wait for that feature to return. Nevertheless, Capone’s is prepared to meet the capacity standards regardless of the limitations set upon reopening.

Guest Interaction

Guests on stage? We think so! Dance routines may change slightly, but a little Charleston performed 6 feet apart is still entertaining. Guest interaction is still very doable. Our children’s interviews are very popular, and we see no issues continuing with a social distancing segment in the show.


While some other restaurants in Central Florida have adapted with unique services, Orlando area dinner shows will have to wait a little while longer. There is no take-out, no outdoor seating and very little we can do right now other than sell gift cards and wait. We’ve done our part to help stop the spread of the virus, and we’ll continue to protect our guests in the future.

Who knows, this “bug” may see some jitterbug from the wise guys and gals very soon. Until then, wash your ‘flippers’ often, stay home if you’re sick, and know that Al’s gang wishes you well and hopes things are ‘hitting on all eight’ at your joint.

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).

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.
