This past year, Capone’s Dinner & Show marked its 20th anniversary and produced a new show, revamping a 10-year run from the last new show. This coming year, Arabian Nights dinner show will be celebrating their 25th anniversary. They are now featuring a new show called, “The Royal Celebration.” This is significant, because it will be the first complete revision of the show in 14 years.
This Orlando dinner show spins a tale of romance and magic taking place on the wedding day of Princess Amirah. Her groom is none other than Prince Raswan from another tribe. These two kingdoms are the most powerful kingdoms in the Empire, so, as you might expect, it reckons to be a royal event. You can also expect a little rivalry between these 2 tribes. Can they come together as the prince and princess have?
This Orlando dinner show has not forgotten what has made it a favorite amongst dinner show guests. The horses. The famous Al-Marah Arabian horses are spectacular. They are joined with 12 other breeds including American Quarter horses, Belgian draft horses and Percherons. Just as Capone’s has kept some of their guests’ favorite parts of the show in all of their sequels, including the stand-up comedy portion of the show, Arabian Nights has kept a few of their guest favorites in this new show. For one, the Black Arabian Stallion along with its highly skilled rider remain a large part of the show and are sure to impress.
The new show at Arabian Nights features new costumes, music and interior decor. Sound familiar? It should. Capone’s Dinner & Show has shown a great amount of success when they renovated their theater, added new sets, lighting, sound and costumes. For guests that return from a previous visit, it can make a big difference.
While some of the reviews of this new show at Arabian Nights have not been well received, most horse-lovers will appreciate the incredible beauty of the horses in the show and the difficulty of the routines they perform. They are not looking so much for a plot to the show, but can enjoy the dinner show for what it is. Capone’s Dinner Show offers two different shows for their guests. This comes after numerous requests to bring back their old show once their die-hard fans had a chance to experience the all-new anniversary show. Now guests get the best of both worlds, a new show and a favorite show.
Capone’s Dinner & Show has implemented many food changes during their big anniversary year. A new salad bar has been set up with fresh seasonal favorites. Having it separate from the rest of the food has sped up the line to the buffet. This Orlando dinner show has also included a meat carving station with steak, turkey and pork. This ensures freshness and a nice variety. Arabian Nights has not changed this portion of their dinner show ticket. The bleacher-style seating and plated food remain the same. They have added VIP tickets and an unlimited drink ticket package, which, unlike Capone’s, cost extra, but is reasonable.
