Many adult organizations plan group trips to Capone’s Dinner & Show. Additionally, popular county parks and recreation programs also offer monthly field trips for adults. Some nursing homes, assisted living facilities and even HOAs plan trips for their residents. There are plenty of things to see and do in the Orlando area.

Field Trips to Capone’s Dinner & Show

A field trip to Capone’s Dinner & Show includes a matinee performance with a lunch buffet. While the normal showtime is in the evening, the wise guys are happy to schedule an exclusive afternoon matinee performance for large groups. You need 150 adults in your party to qualify for a special matinee performance. One of Al’s favorite lines is, “If you bring a bus, we’ll make a fuss!”

Field Trips to Capone's are fun!

If you don’t have a super large group, that’s okay too. Groups of 15 or more adults can still take advantage of group pricing and perks. If you have less than 15 in your group, you won’t be left out.

This early showtime is very popular, and Capone’s Dinner & Show is excited to have matinees as a vital part of their agenda.

Professional Wrestling Dinner Theater Remains in the Ring

When you think of dinner entertainment for a night out on the town, what comes to mind? Most likely your first thought is not to attend a professional wrestling dinner theater. Yet, six times a year, you can join a sold-out crowd and enjoy such a dinner show.

In 2014 the new Manor Professional Wrestling Dinner Theater was mentioned in an article about new restaurant attractions. While newcomers were welcomed, we also said goodbye to other area dinner shows that closed their doors. Now, 5 years later, the Manor has seemed to have reached a happy platform and is still in the ring.

By limiting the number of shows performed to 6 per year, it is easier to attain a sell-out crowd. The wrestlers also have plenty of time to work on their performance. You see, the storyline at this professional wrestling dinner theater is every bit as important as the physical nature of the performance.

Performances and Storylines

2019 Schedule for Wrestling Dinner Show

The performance is all about good and evil. Lady Golden Eyes had entertained the village with only the best talent around. Meanwhile, a jealous Lord Darkness had other intentions in mind. He cast a spell upon the Manor and half of the performers turned evil. When both leaders disappear, chaos ensues and it is every warrior for themselves. It’s village vs. village in a contest to see who will win the prized Manor Medallion. Who will you cheer for?

Furthermore, the actual wrestling at the Manor Professional Wrestling Dinner Theater is not “real,” however, the acting is. It takes a great amount of skill to throw a fake punch. Consequently, if you don’t think it hurts to be tossed about a wrestling ring, think again! These actor/wrestlers are very fit performers. Their energy is contagious as well.

Fine Dining (in a sense)

Dinner courses are served throughout the show. The menu consists of tossed green salad, oven roasted chicken, green beans or vegetable medley, mashed potatoes and dinner rolls. Additionally, cheesecake is served for dessert. Beverages include ice tea, lemonade, coffee and water in which you replenish yourself at a beverage station.

Reserve Your Professional Wrestling Dinner Theater Tickets

Consequently, if you are not able to get into the July 19 show, reserve tickets at a future performance. Shows are tentatively set for September 27, November 29 and December 20. Check out their website for next years’ schedule at manorprowrestling.com. You may also send an email requesting reservations, especially if you are looking for a group discount.

Ticket prices start at $37 for kids (4-12 yrs.) & $43 for adults. Take advantage of the ‘couple up’ ticket at a discount of $75, or family of 4 at $145. VIP packages are also available which includes a photo and T-shirt. The cost includes the 2-hour show, three-course dinner, 7 pro wrestling matches, and a meet & greet after the show. Use the dinner show promo code: Manorpro and receive a 20% off discount (ends Jan. 1, 2020).

Finally, the Manor Professional Wrestling Dinner Theater is performed at Osceola Heritage Park, located next to the Silver Spurs Arena at 1875 Silver Spur Lane, Kissimmee, FL 34744. If you go, enjoy the blend of body slams and spandex; dropkicks and dropped jaws. This is sure to be a fun, unusual night out on the town.

Manor Professional Wrestling crowd

If verbal cheap shots and tag teams of ‘trouble boys’ are your thing, why not check out the gang at Capone’s Dinner & Show. They’re open (nearly) every night of the year and offer a great entertainment value. Their cast consists of some hysterical characters whose antics will ‘flair flop’ their way right into your heart. Before your vacation’s three-count, be sure to save a night for Capone’s. It’s one dinner show ring you won’t soon “fa-get-a-bout-it.

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!

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?

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.
