Orlando Dinner Shows New Year’s Eve Parties

In the past, Orlando Dinner Shows New Year’s Eve parties have offered smaller crowds and a lot of fun. While theme parks are an exciting way to ring in the New Year, many tourists and local residents will select a smaller venue to celebrate at. However, this year, there is only one local dinner show offering a specific NYE party. You guessed it – Capone’s Dinner & Show!

Orlando Dinner Shows New Year's Eve

For many people, theme parks are not enjoyable when the crowds get as large as they do on New Year’s Eve. You pretty much have to spend the entire day at the park, getting there as early as possible. If you prefer to dine out on New Year’s Eve and do something special, why not attend an Orlando Dinner Shows New Year’s Eve show?

The 9:00 p.m. New Year’s Eve Gala at Capone’s Dinner & Show is sure to be special.

With plenty of places on I-Drive, you’ll find somewhere to ring in the New Year. See the show early, then make plans out or celebrate at home or in your hotel’s bar.

Best Bet

In closing, if you like large crowds and an all-day affair, get tickets to an Orlando theme park. To celebrate in a smaller venue, which also requires a little less time and money (yet still extremely enjoyable), attend an Orlando dinner show New Year’s Eve party. Capone’s is your one sure bet.
