Star Wars-themed Dinner Show from a Galaxy Far Far Away

Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge opens at Disney World later this summer. With it, news of a Star Wars-themed dinner show has surfaced on our planet. Travel forward in time and this new Disney dinner show should come to fruition around 2021. That is, if the dark side doesn’t intervene.

Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge is scheduled to open on August 29, 2019, while the Star Wars-themed hotel does not yet have an opening date. This luxury hotel is tentatively named “Galactic Journeys: A Star Wars Adventure.  A restaurant is planned for the very heart of this new universe. It is within this Star Wars-themed restaurant that the exclusive Disney dinner show is assumed to take front stage.

Package to Include Star Wars-themed Dinner Show

Additionally, it is reported that Disney will offer a multi-day adventure as an “all-inclusive” package. Visitors (as well as local Jedi) will be able to spend two nights and three days enjoying an out-of-this-world experience. Hop aboard the Chandrila Star Line and be transported within this galaxy. Even Droids will appreciate the convenience of an Orlando vacation package.

Speaking of all-inclusive…
Reservations for Capone’s Dinner & Show package everything you need into one low price. This local dinner show has free parking too. You don’t have to be a Padawan to appreciate the great service you’ll experience at this affordable dinner show. You also do not need to wait to experience it. Capone’s is open now, nearly every night of the year. Bring the entire gang – even the little Wookies will love it. It’s a blast from the past, fit for your future Orlando vacation!

May the Future Force be with You

Disney dinner show drinksAs only Disney can do, every detail including the Star Wars-themed dinner show is certainly expected to please. Even Ewoks will love it. Sip some Blue Bantha Milk (from A New Hope) or Green Milk as Luke Skywalker did at Thala-sirens in The Last Jedi. Dine on a feast suited for ‘the force.’ As for the show? Prepare yourself for a number of Jedi mind tricks, as it is sure to thrill.

Finally, only time will tell if this new Star Wars-theme dinner show will actually make a visit to our planet. Stormtroopers prepare. It is sure to meet a few death stars along the way, but nothing Disney cannot handle. Start saving now. The cost is also expected to be out of this world!

History of the Early Bird Special

The first written record of an “early bird special” dates back to July 12, 1904. There was a sale on men’s summer underwear at a department store named Olds, Wortman and King. I guess in Oregon, July would still be considered ‘early’ for summer underwear? Later in the 30s, stores used early bird specials during the first few hours after a store opened. Get your fedora on sale while they last!

Furthermore, early bird specials began appearing with food-related deals in the 20s. Ads promoting “early bird breakfasts” were adopted by restaurants across the country. The term didn’t get paired with dinner and supper until the 50s. However, it was highly popular in Florida, especially in the 80s and 90s. This is also when ‘early bird specials’ became associated with the elderly. It was even written into a script in a 1985 episode of The Golden Girls (set in Miami, Florida).

Other Early Birds

If you’ve heard the phrase “the early bird catches the worm,” you’re familiar with an old English proverb. It dates back to 1605! The phrase is often used to motivate teens to get up early, encourage employees for success and describe morning people.

Early Bird Dinner TheaterIf you live or have visited Clearwater, Florida, you may have heard of Ed Fletcher’s Early Bird Dinner Theatre. If you are in the area, we highly recommend checking it out. Like Capone’s Dinner & Show, this theater has been around for over 25 years. It is a popular attraction in Tampa Bay. Their shows are funny and entertaining. Dinner is buffet-style provided by an onsite catering company. Additionally, a full-service bar is on site. Unlike Capone’s, it is not open every evening and the show varies. Visit them on the web or call 727-446-5898 for more information.

Regardless of when you like to eat, it’s hard to beat Capone’s Dinner & Show in the Orlando/Kissimmee area.  Attend the upcoming early show and enjoy an early bird special fit for your entire flock. It doesn’t take a jailbird to figure out the advantage of getting out early!

Consistent Service at Capone’s – Meet Vito: Featured Wise Guy

Guest Service Spotlight

There’s nothin’ like visitin’ a restaurant or some speakeasy knowin’ yous gonna receive consistent service. One of the goals at Capone’s Dinner Show is that each guest receives excellent service each time theys visit. That’s why havin’ a pal like Vito ‘round is so important. Yous sees all the dames, servers and wise guys at my speakeasy are special, but this month’s featured ‘pal’ is Vito. He’s been ‘round awhile and delivers consistent service to all my guests.

Meet Vito - Wise Guy (server) at Capone's Dinner & Show

Our guests ‘fall’ for Vito & his excellent, consistent service.

Vito made his way down from New York several years ago. In fact, over 10 years ago he fell into our gang. He falls alot, but more about that later… Vito is an Italian name that is derived from the Latin word “vita,” meaning “life” or “life-giving” which is very fitting. This family name was passed down to Vito from his uncle. What good Italian family doesn’t have a Vito?!

Vito is full of life and loves meeting new people at our Orlando dinner show. He enjoys servin’ guests and hearin’ ‘bout their stories. Sometimes he’s so engrossed with his guests he forgets where he is! That’s okay most of the time, but when it causes him to fall off the stage, it can be a real problem. Yous see, I’m all ‘bout takin’ care of the family, howevers, I ain’t much for workmans comp! These wise guys jus’ need to stay on stage or off of it. Course, when yous up there and all those pretty dancers are puttin’ on a show, it’s easy to fall for them gals. Yous know what I mean?

Consistent Service at Capone’s

Vito knows many repeat offenders – those folks that return to our joint again and again. Yous knows the ones. They have all the answers and know exactly how to get the best seats (either by making their reservations far in advance or bein’ VIP guests).  They’s even been known to call in their reservations and ask to sit in his section! These repeat offenders also bring their cheap souvenirs and wear ‘em over and over again. They’re some of our most beloved guests!

Other palookas that come to my speakeasy for the first time are thrilled to have Vito as their server ‘cuz they get consistent service which encourages them to visit again. All of my wait staff will keep your drinks filled, table clean and make sure yous don’t go yappin’ your jaw with Detective Marvel. After all, we’re all here to meet with Vito’s favorite “Italian Opera Lovers Society,” right?

Love Audience Interaction? Meet Bullitts: Featured Wise Guy

Guest Service Spotlight

Most of my guests are lookin’ for a fun time and audience interaction when they attend Capone’s Dinner Show. So’s that’s why havin’ palookas… I mean personable fellas, workin’ at my joint is so important. Yous sees all the dames, servers and wise guys at my speakeasy are special, but this month’s featured ‘goon’ is Bullitts. (Don’t ask me why he spells it that way, it’s just the way it is.)

Meet Bullitts, he offers plenty of audience interaction at Capone's Dinner & Show

Bullitts made his way down from Pawtucket, RI several years ago. In February of 2004 he joined our gang and has been a loyal member of ‘the family’ ever since. Probably ‘cuz he needs the kale to feed his ever-growing family. Yous sees Bullitts has seven children – hince the name, Bullitts. Yous can believe we’ve heard him say, “no ‘shooting blanks’ jokes, folks” more often than we can count! Even at home, Bullitts has an audience, so it jus’ stands to reason why he’s so good at gettin’ a crowd involved. One thing’s for sure, all those mouths to feed keeps Bullitts on his toes and workin’ hard at my joint.

One of the things Bullitts likes best ‘bout working at this Kissimmee dinner show is the atmosphere. He loves interacting with guests and being a goofball. There’s nothin’ like a goofy gangster runnin’ ‘round makin’ people laugh. Speakin’ of runnin’ ‘round… There was a time Bullitts’ hands were full of glassware and his belt decided to break. Wow! What a show! Even with his pants fallin’ down – stopping the show in laughter – Bullitts didn’t skip a beat. What a pal!

Audience Interaction at Capone’s

At Capone’s Dinner & Show, one of our guests’ favorite part is the audience interaction. We can get everyone involved somehow. Even the kids. Then there are some people that jus’ love to heckle. If you’s one of ‘em, Bullitts can out-heckle the best of hecklers! I’d bet on it, if I were a gamblin’ man. Alternately, if you’d rather not get so involved, ask for a table farther away from the action when yous make your reservation. We understand not everyone loves being in the spotlight like Bullitts does. He likes it so much that he wishes we had more than one show a day! Yous know what? Some days we do have two shows! Visit our showtimes page and see when matinees, early shows and late shows take place. More than likely Bullitts will be here waitin’ on yous.

As it is (unfortunately), there are times our guests take the audience interaction a little too personal. Our wise guys are pretty quick to pick up on the high-hats that can’t take a joke. But seriously folks, if Bullitts can joke with a lady in a wheelchair tellin’ her he’s going to switch out her oxygen tank with laughing gas, then yous can lighten up too, capisce?! It’s not like we’re going to put yous in front of the chopper squad if yous smile a little. Forget-about-it…We’re here to have fun!

Excellent Service – Meet ‘Stretch’ Featured Wise Guy

Guest Service Spotlight

If you’s lookin’ for excellent service while havin’ a meal, meet “Stretch.” He’s a real goon… I mean good guy, workin’ at my Speakeasy. All the servers at my joint are special, but this month’s featured ‘bruno’ is Stretch. As yous might be able to see from his mug shot, the numbers don’t lie. Stretch is a tall fella. Hince his name.

Excellent Service by Stretch

Stretch came ‘round from the Tampa area needing cabbage ‘bout two years ago. We’s lucky ‘nough to snag him into our gang. He’s a hard worker always providing excellent service pleasin’ the guests. Even the ones that don’ seem to want to be pleased. Yous know the ones. He takes it real personal when anyone doesn’t respect the experience him an’ his pals have worked so hard to create. So show some respect next time yous see him! Capisce?!

Excellent Service at Capone’s

At Capone’s Dinner & Show, we expect extraordinary guest service and Stretch performs his duties well. So much so that guests ask for him on their return visits. This makes him feel real keen. He has a gift of blendin’ in his unique guest service skills while stayin’ true to his own character. And what a character he is!

One guest liked him so much, they licked his elbow while he was pourin’ a pitcher! We’s don’ know why. Maybe they’s were real thirsty, but we’re hopin’ it was a sign of endearment, not some way of spreadin’ somethin’ we’s don’ need ‘round here. Perhaps they thought they were in some hash house, ‘nstead of my classy joint. Either way, Stretch handled it with professionalism and performed his duties without skipping a beat.
