Similar to the Wantilan Luau dinner show, the new Caribbean Carnaval dinner show is now being performed at Loews Sapphire Falls Resort. The Caribbean Carnaval dinner show is a ticketed event.

They cost $69-$76 (plus tax) for adults and $35-$40 (plus tax) for children ages 3-9 depending upon priority seating or regular seating. This price includes gratuity, non-alcoholic beverages, wine, beer and Planters Punch.

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!
An Island Escape
During dinner guests are entertained by performers mingling with the diners. You’ll be welcomed by a stilt walker and other friendly islanders. You may even have a custom song performed just for you!
Following dinner, a lively show is performed. Musicians and dancers take guests on a “tour” of the islands through song and dance. Many guests get in the action. Afterall, who can resist a congo line?
Savor the vibrant colors, delightful tastes and rich sounds by ‘escaping’ to the islands. Are you ready to do the limbo, jump into the conga line or take part in the festivities? Purchase your tickets. Call (407) 503-3463 or purchase online at universalorlando.com.
If you’d like to experience an evening during the prohibition era, Capone’s Dinner & Show is a short drive away from the Loews Sapphire Falls Resort.

So enjoy the Caribbean Carnaval, then grab your gang and come to Capone’s. It’s a blast from the past.
