Enjoy Getting to Know Other Guests at the Caribbean Carnaval Dinner Show!

Round tables, set for 10 guests, are elegantly set and provide a cozy atmosphere. The show itself is limited to about 150 people when food is served inside covered areas. At most about 200 guests can be accommodated including the outdoor patio area. This provides a nice atmosphere to get to know other guests.

Diners choose from a salad station, hot pots, a carving station and a min-dessert station. The menu is comprised buffet-style and includes dishes such as Ropa Vieja (shredded beef), tomato and sweet plantains, jerk chicken, grilled snapper, coconut rice, salads, sides and mini desserts. The Mojo-roasted suckling pig from the carving station draws a lot of attention. Sous Chef Carlos Castano states, “People are amazed to see the suckling pig.” There are plenty of options on the salad bar too, including grilled pineapple, organic greens, pinto bean and shrimp salad and more. Other venues on Universal Studios properties may feature a variation of one or two dishes, but most of these items can only be found at this Orlando dinner show.

Adults will enjoy the rum punch. They also provide a fruit punch which is alcohol-free. Limited beer and wine selections are also served. Kids attending the Caribbean Carnaval dinner show even get their own buffet!

Memorial Day Weekend Plans – Fun in the Orlando Area

What are your Memorial Day weekend plans? If you’re looking for something fun to do, here are some suggestions from the gang.

Happy Memorial Day! Memorial Day Weekend Plans

Memorial Day weekend marks the beginning of summer for many Floridians. What are your plans? Chances are, they include a dip in the water – the pool, the ocean or at one of our many great Orlando water parks. You may even be planning a barbecue. If you’re looking for something fun for the entire family or group of friends, make your reservations to attend Capone’s Dinner & Show. We’ve got a great show ready for you this Memorial Day weekend.

Memorial Day Weekend Plans for the Beach

Florida's BeachesIf you’re plans include the beach, please follow the driving rules. As you approach the beach entry, turn on your lights and keep them on at all times while driving on the beach. The driver side window needs to be rolled down and music kept at a minimum. Depending upon where you enter the driving beaches, there could be one-way driving, so pay attention to the direction you are to drive in. There is also NO TEXTING while driving on the beach. There are also several no-parking zones in Daytona Beach Shores and in New Smyrna Beach. Ask the attendant at the beach entry if you are uncertain of any local laws. As always, swim near a lifeguard tower. There are often threats of rip currents. Know how to swim out of one. Be on the lookout for sharks as well. NSB is the shark bite capitol for a reason.

Orlando Water Parks

Orlando’s water parks are sure to see huge crowds this weekend. Because Wet ‘n Wild is no longer open, and the newly anticipated Volcano Bay at Universal will be packed (first weekend open), the other water parks are sure to see high attendance. For information about all of the many options for Orlando area water parks, view our Water Park Attractions listing.

Cooking Out

Do your Memorial Day weekend plans include a barbecue? Here are some safety tips from the wise guys:

  1. Fire: Control and watch it at all times and be ready to extinguish it. Know how to treat burns.
  2. Food Safety: Bacteria will multiply on food from the time it comes out of the fridge, until it reaches 165 degrees F. After serving, get the left-overs back into the refrigerator. You’re more likely to get food poisoning that the flu. Not fun.
  3. Instructions: Grills, gas or charcoal, and smokers all have very specific ranges of operation. Know these before you light up.
  4. Location: Keep a minimum distance from your house, garage, trees, patio and play areas. Fires and smoke don’t mix well with these items.
  5. Gas Safety: Inspect your gas grill for problems. Bugs and other critters can climb into little places causing gas to flow where it shouldn’t. At the first sign of problems turn off your control valves, turn off the fuel tank, and disconnect everything.
  6. Charcoal Safety: The number one problem with charcoal grill is lighting the charcoal.  Lighter fluid turns to a heavy gas at a relatively low temperature and should be avoided if possible.
  7. Grease: Grease that collects in your grill builds up over time. You need to keep your grill clean.
  8. Cancer: Cooking (by any method) of meats (particularly red meat and chicken) at very high temperatures until surface charring occurs can cause cancer causing substances (Heterocyclic Amines (HCA)) to form.  To minimize the risk use marinades, do not over cook foods and keep grill temperatures under 600 degrees
  9. Smoke: Smoke from your grill or smoker contains carbon monoxide and other dangerous substances. Enjoy the smell from a distance.
  10. Alcohol:  Grilling and smoking require some clear thinking, so keep a clear head and save that drink for after the fire is out and someone else is dealing with the dishes.

Dining In – Orlando Dinner Show

Cooking out sounds like a lot of work to me, so why not skip the BBQ and head over to Capone’s Dinner & Show for a great meal and fun entertainment. Our buffet is all-you-can-eat and our wait staff will make sure the drinks keep coming. Take a cab back to your home or motel and send out all the text messages you want! Order your tickets online now and get them at half price!

Finally, whatever your Memorial Day weekend plans, Capone’s Dinner and Show would like to take this opportunity to remember all who gave their lives in service to our nation. We also want to thank all of our veterans and active-duty soldiers for their service. We appreciate the sacrifices you and your family have made for our freedom. Be sure to take advantage of our military discount.

After your day of activities, we’d like to invite you to an evening of fun and dining at our Orlando dinner show. Our theater is air conditioned and we serve up a great dinner buffet and unlimited drink supply. Happy Memorial Day everyone!

We cherish too, the Poppy red
That grows on fields where valor led,
It seems to signal to the skies
That blood of heroes never dies.

You’ve Got A Friend in the Orlando Fringe Festival

If you’ve been around Orlando long enough, chances are you know someone that performs in the Orlando Fringe Festival. Perhaps you have friends that are regular Fringe supporters. Or kids at your child’s school or daycare talk on and on about the fun they had at Kids Fringe. So what are you waiting for? Check out the Fringe Festival!

The Orlando Fringe Festival is a 12-day-festival that is founded on the concept of offering 100% uncensored, 100% accessible theatre, music, dance, art and madness to all types and ages. The Orlando Fringe is the longest running Fringe festival in the U.S., and 100% of the ticket sales go directly back to the artists within The Fringe. Each year, the festival takes place during the 12 days leading up to Memorial Day. This year’s festival is May 17th through 29th.

If you do your homework before heading down to Loch Haven Park, you’ll know where to park, what show to see and how to make sure you are able to get into the show(s) you want to see. Most everything you need to know can be found on the Fringe’s website at orlandofringe.org. You may also find information from our previous year’s postings about the Fringe Festival:


Kid's Orlando Fringe FestivalKids Fringe Theatre Festival

Weekends are for kids. Kids Fringe is free and a lot of fun. Children can bounce away in the bounce house, meet a creature, dress up in a real theatre costume, play a drum and take funny pictures in the photo booth. It’s a great way to introduce your child to the arts and let them see for themselves how it can enrich their lives.

However, many of the shows are NOT for children. Be sure to read each show’s description and follow the guidelines. Remember, the shows are not censored.

2017 Orlando Fringe Festival Show Highlights

So the wise guys and gals have been browsing the lineup for this year’s Orlando Fringe Festival. We couldn’t pass up on the opportunity to plug a few shows that caught our eye. Of course “A Brief History of Petty Crime” sounded intriguing to big Al! Another production that has received great reviews is “High Tea: Another British Comedy.” It has earned several best-of awards.

Other shows which piqued our interests include:

“Snack,” a first-time appearance with plenty of comedy centered about food!

“Roller Derby Saved My Soul” which is back by popular demand.

“6 Quick Dick Tricks: A Dirk Darrow Investigation,” a murder mystery adventure.

“Beau & Aero: Crash Landing” promises laughs with few spoken words (kid-friendly for 7+).

“Judy Garland: Stuck in a Bear Trap with Nothing to Wear”has been reviewed as laugh out loud funny.

Flori-duh an Orlando Fringe Festival fund-raiser show

…and a one night only show “Flori-DUH” – hosted by fringe favorite Mike Delamont and Morgan Cranny shares completely true stories and tales from Florida in a way that you’ll never forget! Hope you can still get tickets!


Fringe is a great way to experience something a little different here in Orlando. Find a friend or two and go see a couple of shows. On the weekend, take the little ones along. You’re sure to find the Fringe a friendly experience.
