Al with maskDue to the recent surge of COVID-19 cases, we have made the decision to re-open with a limited schedule at this time. We will be monitoring the situation and determining the best schedule going forward. 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 25, 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.

Attraction Food News

When it comes to good food at Orlando’s attractions, we can expect a great experience most every visit regardless of the Orlando theme park, restaurant or attraction. We can also expect lots of new food items being served and introduced. Every once-in-a-while an entirely new restaurant opens which is the case this past week at Downtown Disney’s West Side and later this summer at Universal’s Diagon Alley.

Starbucks Opens at Downtown Disney

A new Starbucks is now open serving coffee, pastries and sandwiches at Downtown Disney’s West Side. This beautiful restaurant is large with an open plan and plenty of seating. It is about 3,900 square feet, which is much larger than most Starbucks restaurants. Not only is there a lot of air conditioned indoor seating, an outdoor patio with tables and a fireplace offer more seating options with a relaxing experience. It faces the lake and within view of the Characters in Flight tethered helium balloon rides.

Other unique features at this Starbucks include a lemongrass roof! Rich with coffee compost, this grass is environmentally-friendly preventing run off into the lake. Another unique feature is the electronic chalk board. Guests will have fun doodling on the board & also see a live view of a similar screen at Disneyland’s Downtown Disney in Anaheim, CA. One other extrememly unique feature at this Orlando restaurant is the long bench made of heart pine. Salvaged from the Alabama cotton mill, it is estimated to be 300 to 400 years old.

Hours for this new Starbucks are expanded too. It will be open from 10:00 a.m. to midnight every day. As with the Winter Park Starbucks, this restaurant will offer the chain store’s “reserve” coffee line. These rare coffees will be an exclusive to Disney’s Starbucks. The Magic Kingdom and Epcot Starbucks locations do not offer the reserve line. Plans for cafes at Disney’s Hollywood Studios and Animal Kingdom all include future Starbuck locations.

Menu and New Food Items Announced for Diagon Alley

Later this summer new dining options at Universal Studio’s new Diagon Alley will offer a British fare. One of the restaurants at this theme park will be the Leaky Cauldron. It will feature Cottage Pie, Beef, Lamb & Guinness Stew, Bangers and Mash, Split Pea Soup and a host of other dishes you’d expect to find in a British pub.

You will, no doubt, feel as if you’ve stepped into one of the Harry Potter movies and could possibly be rubbing elbows with Harry, Hagrid or the twins! There is a lot of anticipation to experience this new theme park. The best way to keep up with the development is to regularly visit Universal’s blog.

Meat carving station at Capone's Dinner & ShowCapone’s Dinner & Show continues with it’s revamped menu which includes a delicious meat carving station. As if the delicious dinner buffet didn’t offer enough selection, this station features smoked turkey, London broil steak and herb and cheese-stuffed roasted pork tenderloin. You can also create your own pasta dish from selections including Bucatini, Spaghetti, Linguini, Cavatappi and Macaroni, topped off with a sauce of your choice – Marinara, Alfredo, Cheese and Vesuvio herb butter sauce. The pasta is made from scratch, and doesn’t get any fresher than this!

Orlando Dinner Show: Last 10 Performances of “Marvel Strikes Back”

Tonight will begin the curtain call countdown for Capone’s Dinner & Show’s newest production, “Marvel Strikes Back.” The new “story” which began a little over a year ago, is scheduled for it’s last performance on October 11, 2013. For those of you who attended a show at this Orlando dinner show venue prior to a year ago, and want to see this particular production, you have 10 more chances. Don’t be confused. Capone’s will remain open with nightly shows. The pre-20th anniversary show “Bugs Creates Chaos” will take its place every night until Thanksgiving day. The single-show schedule will allow the cast to prepare for the holiday show which runs through New Years day.

Orlando dinner show photo featuring a character at Capone's Dinner & ShowTonight (Friday) begins the count down to this show’s final performance. You can make reservations online or by phone to see “Marvel Strikes Back” which is performed on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays. This show features the return of a humorous character named Detective Marvel. Well, he used to be a detective. After being demoted to beat cop, he is as determined as ever to shut the joint down. Fingers Salvatorio, a popular character that has been featured in this Orlando dinner show for many years, has other plans. He has moved up in the organization and needs to keep Al’s joint up and running strong. Facing many pressures, including fatherhood and getting Bunny June out of the slammer, see how he handles the return of this copper.

This special anniversary show has also featured new songs, costumes and a special message from Al himself. See and hear them while you can. While a few of the features in this hilarious show will continue in the nightly show, many will not. The stand-up comedy portion of each show will remain, even within the holiday show. It is often the most memorable for the guests, and because of it, no two shows are ever alike. The gangster shoot out will also carry over into the nightly show. For guests that haven’t been to this Orlando dinner show in over a year, the shoot out will be new for you. Hint: The gangsters do NOT use your standard issued Tommy Guns filled with ordinary ammunition. When this action begins, you won’t mind catching a “bullet!”

Be sure to make your reservations and see this show in its final few performances. Attend the “family reunion” while you can. Help find a rat in the organization, all while enjoying a feast fit for a boss. Tickets online are half price. If you phone in your reservation (407-397-2378), be sure to ask for the internet special. You may also print the coupon found online or in many tourist publications, making this one of the best values for your money. No other Orlando dinner show provides so much at these prices!

See Marvel while you can and enjoy the show. After October 11th, his character might see a final curtain call. Or will he? You’ll have to return and see the show again after the holidays to find out!
