The Unique Prohibition Era Dinner Show Near Me

One of the best things about the dinner show near me is the unique prohibition era show that Capone’s offers. Unlike the other Kissimmee dinner show, you won’t find it at 8 other locations throughout the US & Canada. No sir. It is the one and only. Enjoyable and affordable too!

So when I discovered another prohibition era show called “Happy Hour Prohibition – The Musical,” well, I just had to read all of the details. No, you won’t find this pre-dinner show near me in Orlando or anywhere near you (most likely, anyway). For this, you’ll have to take to the high seas!

Dinner Show Near Me - Norwegian Cruise Line

Tantalizing madams will regale you with tales of bootleggers and some of the era’s most famous tunes.

Norwegian Bliss Cruise ShipNorwegian Cruise Line’s, Norwegian Bliss, will officially be christened in Seattle on May 30. However, the ship will stop in Port Miami on it’s way to its summer home. Next winter, it will set sail from its home port in New York. It is the cruise line’s largest ship holding 4,004 passengers. It offers destinations that include Alaska, Eastern Caribbean, Mexican Riviera, Bahamas/Florida/New York, Panama Canal and the Pacific Coast.

Wishing This Dinner Show Near Me

What does this cruise ship have to do with a newly discovered prohibition era show? The Norwegian Bliss is where you’ll find the new interactive show, Happy Hour Prohibition – The Musical being performed. It is certainly not a dinner show near me, but I can certainly wish for me to be near it someday!

Unlike Capone’s Dinner & Show set in gangland Chicago, this show will take to back in time to the world-famous Madam Lulu’s New Orleans speakeasy. A speakeasy set in the Big Easy!

Tantalizing madams will regale you with tales of bootleggers and some of the era’s most famous tunes. You’ll be dancing in the aisles, rocking the ship. This show takes place back in time to the eve of the Prohibition era. Of course, the cruise line will be offering once forbidden spirits of their own, each with a modern twist. Afterall, our drinking habits have changed significantly since January 16, 1919.

If this pre-dinner show isn’t enough to tempt you to come aboard, the Tony Award-Winning Broadway show, Jersey Boys, will also be performed aboard the Norwegian Bliss. Another show being performed will take you back to the 1950’s to ¡HAVANA! A show that celebrates Cuba’s music and culture. As with most cruise lines, the entertainment will be top-notch.

Norwegian Bliss

Of course, there is the ship itself featuring a 180-degree observation lounge. A ‘ship-within-a-ship’ called The Haven has its own penthouses, spa, sunbathing deck, and restaurant. The Norwegian Bliss also includes six infinity hot tubs as part of its two-pool sundecks. Also on board are a kids’ aqua park (with a cool slide), a decorative oversized chocolate fountain, The Cellars wine bar, the Mandara Spa, a fitness center, casino and much more. Are you ready to pack your bags? I am!


If you are looking for a great dinner show near you, and you are in the Orlando area, be sure to pay a (respectful) visit to the wise guys at Capone’s Dinner Show. If you are looking for a Mardi Gras twist to a prohibition era show, take to the high seas!

Airing next week, Emeril’s Florida will travel to the Space Coast and visit three restaurants – the Cocoa Villiage Cafe Margaux,” “The Fat Snook located in Cocoa Beach and finally Cafe Coconut Cove in Melbourne. With these restaurants just a short drive away, you may be persuaded to check them out for yourself.

Too bad Emeril won’t be dropping by the Kissimmee dinner show at Capone’s. Mama Capone could give him a tour of the kitchen where all of the fresh pasta and homemade dishes are prepared each night! The wise guys could really show him an entertaining show which runs every night for a little over two hours.

These stay-at-home dinner shows last 30 minutes and air on the Cooking Channel and the Food Network. Not a bad way to visit the state’s top restaurants, resorts and events. After all, Emeril Lagasse can be a pretty good personal travel guide.

However, after watching the show on television, you might be a little hungry. After all, it’s hard to see all of that delicious food and not be able to eat any of it! Bring your appetite to Capone’s Dinner & Show. The buffet will fill you up and the show will keep you entertained. You will have to leave your home, but your travels will be worth it!

Disney Nature – See the Film “Chimpanzee”

While many people celebrated Earth Day this weekend, Disneynature is giving everyone an opportunity all week to help make a donation to the Jane Goodall Institute for the Disneynature Tchimpounga Nature Reserve Project. This is where Oscar, the star of the film “Chimpanzee” lives in the forests of the Ivory Coast.  Disneynature will contribute $.20 per ticket purchased through April 26, 2012 and have pledged a minimum of $100,000 to this program. These donations will help protect chimpanzees and their habitats.

The film took more than four years to make, due to the dense forest and chimpanzees being difficult to capture on camera. It is narrated by Tim Allen and directed by Mark Linfield and Alastair Fothergill who are well-known for the first Disneynature branded film, ‘Earth’ and the popular ‘Planet Earth’ television series. As with these other films, Chimpanzee brings you breathtaking footage in the forests and is a must-see for any nature-lover.

Chimpanzee is a story of a young chimpanzee named Oscar. It captures his life full of curiosity, play and trouble. When a rival band of chimps move in, Oscar’s mother goes missing and he is left to fend for himself. When Oscar was orphaned, the film makers thought the movie wouldn’t be able to be completed. Oscar is taken in by an unexpected ally and the story couldn’t be more touching. Like most Disney productions, this film will touch on a wide range of emotions.

The movie is rated G (although it contains some intense scenes for young children to view) and opened in theaters Friday, April 20, 2012 and will run for several weeks. For more information on the film go to disney.go.com. It is a breathtaking film, and the donation your ticket will help make this week, will ensure these types of projects can continue to be shared with the entire earth. Make every day Earth Day.

Friday Date-Night Plans

Tired of the same ol’ date night plans? Perhaps you are asking someone out for the first time and want to plan a memorable evening. Look no further than Leu Gardens! This Saturday (and the first Saturday of every month through December 3, 2011), enjoy a movie in their beautiful outdoor gardens while lounging on your own blanket or travel chairs. Pack a picnic and enjoy a dinner and show!

This Friday’s feature is the 1950 movie “Father of the Bride” starring Spencer Tracy, Joan Bennett and Elizabeth Taylor. Enjoy this comedy film about a father trying to deal with the many disasters that happen, from the time his daughter is engaged until the wedding occurs. It is such a great story with so many common, and hilarious, situations – you and your date are sure to have more than a few laughs.

Garden admission is only $5 (plus tax) for date night when the gates open at 6:00 p.m. The movie starts at 8:30 p.m. allowing plenty of time for a romantic stroll prior to the movie. By arriving early, you’ll also have time to set up an elaborate picnic dinner – if you’re trying to impress. If you are a married couple with children, wishing for a unique date night, bring the children along! Admission for children is $2 (plus tax). Bring extra blankets and a pillow in case the little ones aren’t as entertained with the movie as you are.

It’s a great way to spend a Friday night in the garden or on a date. Admission is collected at the door, so don’t worry if your date cancels or plans have to change at the last minute. There is always next month…

If you aren’t planning to attend the movie at Leu Gardens, please consider attending Capone’s Dinner and Show. We’re open every day of the year and you won’t have to pack a picnic dinner or worry about seating. Our beautifully renovated theater is air conditioned and waiting for your arrival! A great “plan B” if you get rained out at the gardens, or want a unique second-date idea!

Royal Weddings & Great Honeymoons

It’s all the buzz – royal bells are ringing. Parties are being planned, special arrangements being made, but not just by the bride and groom! People all over the world are getting wrapped up in the Royal Wedding. You can even watch the ceremony at Disney’s Swan and Dolphin Resorts right here in Central Florida!

Every detail of the event is being covered – the cake, the floral arrangements, the carriage, the route to Westminster Abbey and Buckingham Palace, the ring, the dress, the guest list, and on and on. Some plans are being shared right down to the very detail, other particulars are very secret. What will her dress look like? Where will they honeymoon?

The dress is sure to be stunning even though the designer is still a mystery. The best guesses for the honeymoon are as varied as the dress designer. Will they stay at the queen’s 50,000-acre Balmoral estate in Scotland? Other’s speculate they’ll spend time at Lizard Island off the coast of Australia or in the British Virgin Islands. Whether it’s an African Safari or a Mediterranean cruise, Prince William and Kate Middleton will be just like any other newlywed couple: ready for some rest, relaxation and privacy.

While their plans do NOT include a stop at Capone’s Dinner & Show, many honeymooners plans DO. So many of our guests have written in that their night at our show was one of the best nights they spent on their honeymoon! It’s just what you need after all the planning and stress – fun, laughter and fantastic entertainment! You don’t have to be a prince to afford it either! If you’re planning a honeymoon to Florida’s theme parks, be sure to save a night for Capone’s. We’ll add to the wonderful memories of your wedding and treat you like royalty!
