Cirque Magique – New Orlando Dinner Show
Orlando has gained another dinner show – The Cirque Magique. This new production joined the Pirate’s Town family of shows in July which now number four different productions (Pirates, Treasure Tavern [no longer in existence], Three Musketeers [no longer in existence] and now The Cirque Magique). With Treasure Tavern being exclusively for adults, why not offer something tailored specifically toward kids? Wa-la! The Cirque Magique show fits the bill.
Not quite a traditional circus with tigers and elephants, and not just a comedy show served with dinner; The Cirque Magique is an interactive and entertaining mix of circus “lite.” The show features circus performances which include magicians, dancers, acrobats, clowns and even pets! You’ll experience plate spinning, juggling, magic, illusions as well as comedy acts involving the audience. There is also singing, dancing and some dog tricks mixed in. It is fast-paced which appeals to a younger audience, especially children.
Dinner Show Menu
The food at The Cirque Magique Orlando dinner show consists of your choice of a cheeseburger, chicken sandwich or a hot dog. Entrees are served with French fries and onion rings. Kids are served chicken nuggets with macaroni & cheese. Be sure to save room for dessert! It is a 3-scoop ice cream sundae (one vanilla, one chocolate and one strawberry) with sprinkles, whipped cream, caramel and chocolate syrup. Beverages are included (soda and water) with free refills. If you are still hungry, popcorn and cotton candy may also be available. Dinner is served on large plates (not the ones spinning on poles) and the tables are covered with table cloths to achieve a nicer dinner setting. Do not be tempted to pull the table cloth off the table with everyone’s meal in place! Let the performers do all of the tricks!
Dinner Show Tickets
Regular price for these Orlando dinner show tickets are $45.95 for adults; $32.45 for children (3-12) and free for 2 and under. Look for special ticket deals on their web site. Currently they are offering discounted tickets at $32.95/adult and $25.95/child which make the value a little more in line with what you’d expect from this production. Prices do not include gratuity; you leave it with your server (performer) or on the table before you leave.
The Cirque Magique show is performed Tuesday through Saturday at 6:00 p.m. and at 3:30 p.m. on Sundays. Call 407-206-5102 for tickets, or go online to book your tickets at www.thecirquemagique.com. All online reservations must be booked an hour in advance. The Pirate’s Town Dinner Theater Complex is located at 6400 Carrier Drive, Orlando, FL 32819.
If you want to get your money’s worth, arrive an hour before the show when the doors open. By the way, the entrance is the same one used for Treasure Tavern. Another reason to arrive early is to find parking. Be prepared to pay for it. The show is just a little over an hour long – short by most Orlando dinner show standards. Say abracadabra, snap your fingers, and it seems it is over!
Kid-friendly Dinner Show
Cirque Magique is an Orlando dinner show for kids. If you are an adult, attending this show with other adults, chances are you will feel like Bozo the clown, and not enjoy this type of dinner theater. While the performers are outstanding and extremely talented, the target audience is children. The clowns are not scary. The magic tricks are not overly complicated. The jokes are a bit corny, and the dog acts are just down right adorable. The show is “Big Top” for families, and your kids will not be disappointed. Unlike Bozo, they’ll join Chuckles, Giggles and Snickers with plenty of smiles.
