Holiday Show Begins Thanksgiving Day at Capone’s

On Thanksgiving Day Capone’s Dinner & Show opens its spectacular holiday show with songs of the season, festive holiday décor and elaborate costumes. For many families vacationing in Orlando, Capone’s has become a tradition. After all, the dinner show has been pleasing audiences for 25 years! Adding new features and updated scripts, keep the show fresh and fun. Not to mention the audience interaction, which is never the same two nights in a row!

To add even more holiday cheer, a Gangster Shootout was incorporated into the seasonal show three years ago with much success. It’s full of action! Be ready to “catch a bullet” and win prizes. The gang at Capone’s has really stepped it up with even more prizes during the holidays and a script that will keep your gang on their feet. It’s a raucous-fun time for all ages.

Halloween Alternative – Capone’s Dinner & Show

Are you a person that does NOT like to be scared? What should you do as a Halloween alternative? Halloween has become a huge event in Orlando. Every theme park offers costume events or terror-related experiences. I get scared just driving down I-4, so I would much rather skip this holiday and find a fun Halloween alternative!

No Witches at this Orlando Dinner Show

Witch prohibition: Halloween alternatives that skip the witches

Scary Things to do in Orlando & Nearby

There are plenty of scary things to do, other than events at the theme parks. Just up the road, in Cassadaga are all types of spiritual encounters. Did you know that there are several haunted places in and around Orlando? There are several tour companies that will guide you through various haunted places in Orlando, Kissimmee, Tampa and Ybor City. There is even a cemetery that offers tours that can raise the hair on the back of your neck. Furthermore, if you are interested in weird, spooky experiences, check out Spook Hill in Lake Wales. Even the old abandoned KSC Launch Pad of Apollo 1 is believed to be haunted by ghosts of three astronauts who lost their lives in a tragic fire.

Additionally, haunted houses are plenty around town. Check out this map of haunted houses in Orlando. Want to sleep with ghosts? Make reservations at any of these three hotels in Orlando where guests have reported seeing ghosts:

  • Crowne Plaza – vague reports of a ghostly entity inhabiting room 621.
  • Super 8 International Drive – room 206 has long been considered a haunted hot-spot in this Orlando hotel.
  • Peabody Hotel (rebranded to Hyatt) – built in 1986, there are claims that a number of people have committed suicide in the building over the years, and that their spirits can sometimes be seen roaming the hallways.

Halloween Alternatives That are Not Scary

Halloween alternatives are events that are not scary, but still Halloween-related. You can participate in several 5K runs and walks scheduled for this weekend. Runners and walkers will be in costume. They contribute to charities that really need our support. Then there are costume contests you can find in nearly every neighborhood, town and county. There are even costume contests for pets! Another Halloween alternative involves trick-or-treating in shopping centers and malls. Fun and safe for your children, with an added benefit of getting a jump on your holiday shopping! While looking for a great list of events, check out News 13’s list of Halloween alternatives.

Best Halloween Alternative That Has Nothing to do with Halloween

Halloween Alternative - Capone's Dinner & Show

If you avoid frights whenever possible, Halloween is a great opportunity to check out an Orlando dinner show. There are several to choose from, but the best value is Capone’s Dinner & Show. Instead of a sinking feeling in your stomach from the result of pure terror, your belly may jiggle from all of the laughter. It’s fun. Not frightful. I think there are a lot of folks out there like me, who’d rather skip the candy handouts and tricks being played upon them. Instead, enjoy an evening out celebrating an era of our history when prohibition (not witches) ruled.

What a Treat!

At Capone’s Dinner & Show, you can purchase your tickets in advance and receive 50% off. Besides being fun, it is the best value of all the Orlando dinner shows. If you decide to take in the show on Halloween night, you’ll even get a treat to take home (not the candy-kind either). No tricks involved! You may have to skip the sweets after you hit the all-you-can-eat dinner buffet. Dessert is offered…if you have room! The drinks will keep coming all evening too. The wait staff work very hard to accommodate every guest, even if they do have that ‘made’ attitude. It’s all part of the act, so loosen up and enjoy!

Al and the gang want to remind you that costume accessories are available in the Gift Shop. Need a fedora? How about a flapper headband or boa? Stop by if you are in need of gangster costume ideas!

Finally, Capone’s is a great Halloween alternative in Orlando. Kids enjoy it too, but you may have a hard time getting them to a dinner theatre on Halloween night. Good news is, Capone’s is open every night of the year, so bring the kids some other evening. On October 31st, turn off your porch lights and come to Capone’s. They’ll have a treat waiting for you and promise not to scare you away!

July’s Grand Prize Winner at Capone’s Dinner & Show

Al and the gang wish to congratulate Diane Boudreau for being July’s Grand Prize winner at Capone’s Dinner & Show Sunday, July 25th. During our “25 Years of Memories” anniversary celebration we’ll be giving some lucky stiff a grand prize on the 25th day of each month. Next month it could be you! The next grand prize will be awarded on Friday, August 25, 2017.

Make Reservations

Diane, a.k.a. Mammo (now that she is one of Al’s gals) came all the way from Boston just to see the show! Imagine that. What a dedicated dame! We’re fairly sure Mammo has some connections from the Boston syndicate. While her winning is a little hinky, Al assures us it was all above board. He should know. Nothin’ goes on in his joint without full disclosure.

Yous sees, the night of Mammo’s visit, lady luck was on her side. The wise guys asked this random broad to pull the winning ticket. She pulled her very own number! What are the odds? Well, one in several hundred. Better than odds at pickin’ 6 numbers, but still very unusual. With this being Mammo’s first visit to our speakeasy, we know she didn’t have connections to set up a sting. So here’s to a square winner!

July’s Grand Prize Winner

“Mammo” was the big winner of July’s anniversary prize, but this ain’t her. Seems she is the shy type and put her son up to take the fall, er a, used him in the evidence photo.

July’s Grand Prize Winner Experience

Mammo’s favorite part of the evening was the great servers and cast. It’s hard not to fall in love with our goons and gals. It doesn’t take a pushover to appreciate their hard work. Servin’ drinks, takin’ shots from plugs, all while being a vital part of our new show. We also think our guests are the bee’s knees. They take good care of our gang, and we’re happy to welcome them into ‘the family.’

The least favorite part of Mammo’s experience was “nothing.” Her words exactly. Our chopper squad didn’t get near her & there were no promises of cement shoes – we swear! With great food and a great show, at a great price…what’s not to like? If you need more reasons to love us, read our countdown list. Capone’s Dinner & Show remains the best value of any Orlando dinner show.

Mammo’s prize was a pair and a half Cs in her pocket, plus a C note to spend in our very own gift shop. Hold on though, that’s not all. She also received 4 tickets to Capone’s Dinner & Show! We’re fairly certain some new clothes and shoes are headed for Mammo’s closet. She’ll probably drop a dime on her husband too. Afterall, he is the one that informed her of our joint. Hopefully, Boston is ready for this swanky kitten! Of course with tickets to our show, her mob will always be welcomed back. We love our repeat offenders.

Again, we’d like to congratulate July’s grand prize winner, Diane Boudreau. Capone’s Dinner & Show hopes that the evening’s experience was the cat’s meow and will be a great memory for years to come.
