Capone’s Award-Winning Experience Recognized Again!

Capone’s Award-Winning Experience has received an award 10 years in a row! Capone’s Dinner & Show was first awarded a TripAdvisor honor in 2011 (for 2010). We’ve repeated every year since! Talk about a repeat performance!

Capone's Award-Winning Experience from Tripadvisor

Same Award, New Name for Capone’s Award-Winning Experience

Prior to this year, TripAdvisor honored top-rated lodging businesses, restaurants, attractions, and more, with a Certificate of Excellence. This year they have changed the name to Tripadvisor Travelers’ Choice award. The Capone’s award-winning experience is based on reviews by travelers on the world’s largest travel site. To be eligible, a business must maintain an overall rating of four or higher (out of five), as reviewed by travelers on TripAdvisor. The volume of reviews received within the last 12 months is also taken into account.

“Capone’s is pleased to receive a TripAdvisor Travelers’ Choice award,” said John Kucik, President at Capone’s Dinner & Show.  “We strive to offer our customers a memorable experience, and this accolade is evidence that our hard work is translating into positive reviews.”

Helping Capone’s Receive the TravelersChoice Award

We’d like to thank everyone for their positive reviews! Since our experience has been award-winning for 10 years in a row, many factors contribute to our success. The show, excellent wait staff, great ticket value, and a host of other reasons. Not only have the positive reviews appeared on TripAdvisor, but also on Facebook and Google.

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.

How to Meet Stretch – Buy Cheap Tickets!

If you’d like to meet Stretch, or any of my wise guys and gals here at Capone’s Dinner & Show, we’ve made it easy. Jus’ buy your tickets online at half price! Come to our speakeasy an’ let Stretch an’ the gang show yous a great time. Your entire family will enjoy the show and receive excellent service. The food will fill yous up, and the evenin’ will be one for the history books.

Make Reservations

While you’re my guest at Capone’s Dinner & Show, be sure to meet Stretch. He’s not hard to find; jus’ look for the tallest server here. He loves to meet people of all types. After a long, frustrating day at a theme park, or doin’ whatever you’s doin’, Stretch will turn your day ‘round with excellent service. Your gang will be lookin’ up… and up …and up!

Parking Fees: Park Yourself at Capone’s & Experience a Bargain Attraction

If you are planning a vacation to any of the Orlando theme parks, make sure you budget for parking fees. Budget for parking, really? When parking at one of these attractions costs nearly as much as a ticket at Capone’s Dinner & Show, yes, one might need to budget for it. Not only have the ticket prices recently gone up at both Disney & Universal, the parking fees have increased as well. Here is a run down of the ‘coin’ you’ll need in hand.

Parking Fees at Orlando Theme Parks:

  • Disney World theme parks = $20
  • Universal Orlando (including Islands of Adventure & CityWalk) = $20
  • Valet Parking at Universal Orlando = $15 first 2.5 hours • $35 over 2.5 hours
  • Universal Front Gate Parking = $40 before 6pm • $30 after 6pm
  • SeaWorld Orlando = $18
  • Kennedy Space Center = $10 Motorcycles | $10 Automobiles | $15 Oversized vehicles, motor homes or RVs

*Prices subject to change.

Admittedly, you get a lot for your money at these attractions. They entertain your family for an entire day, maybe several days. In fact, in 2014 Kennedy Space Center Visitor Complex extended its operating hours by two hours. Previously it would close at 5:00 p.m., now it stays open until 7:00 p.m. (through Sept. 1), so your ticket value has increased. The parking fees may seem trivial, but it helps tourist to know that incidentals, such as food and parking, must be accounted for.

Capone’s Offers Free Parking

Capone’s Dinner & Show continues to offer free parking for cars, motorcycles, tour buses and handicapped parking. A few other smaller attractions, such as Gatorland and Fun Spot America, still do too. Other Orlando dinner shows, including Medieval Times Dinner & Tournament and Pirates Dinner Adventure have resisted the temptation to charge for parking as well. Let’s hear it for the dinner show attractions! Free parking (and ticket includes food)!

No parking fees at Capone's Dinner & Show

Therefore, if you are planning a vacation to Orlando, make sure you save a night for Capone’s Dinner & Show. For almost the same cost as your parking expense at one of the major attractions, you can purchase a child’s ticket (or an adult ticket at valet price) at Capone’s. Be sure to purchase your tickets online, where you’ll pay only half price! Unlike many other Central Florida attractions that let resellers handle their tickets, Capone’s deals directly with the customer. Without the middle man, they can offer their own discounted attraction tickets without the additional expense or hassle.

Park yourself at Capone’s Dinner & Show. For a little over 2 hours, you and your family will have a blast. It’s great to know a good entertainment value still exists for tourists, Florida residents and us locals that enjoy a dinner & a show.

Capone’s Dinner & Show – Date Changed for New Show Debut

The new show preview held at Capone’s Dinner & Show on September 16 was a huge success. While much work is still needed, the guests provided plenty of feedback. Visit the Facebook wall to read the comments. Overall, the general consensus is…the new show will be a huge hit!

Originally the new show was to debut on October 1st. Now the date has been pushed back to October 16th. This will give the cast more time to prepare, the costume details to be worked out, the music scores to be completed, the set to be finished, the ‘Al Capone family welcome’ to be fine-tuned and other details to be worked out. The wait will be well worth it.

Guests were treated to a buffet at the preview, which was greatly appreciated by all. A free show and lunch? Wow! Al sure is a generous guy. In return, guests have commented on the new show, spread the word to their fellow Facebook friends, and some even met with the show director after the preview to give their 2¢ worth.

I was asked if some of the content was too sensitive. If you were at the preview, please feel free to comment on Al’s Blog concerning this – especially the lines in the new show concerning:

  • Canadians
  • Gay Rights
  • Republicans/Political
  • Women’s Rights
  • Sexual Innuendos
  • Other (please specify)

I would also like to know what your favorite parts/lines in the new show preview were. Mine was the texting telephone. To me, that was very funny!  However, I spent most of the time laughing, so I could have missed something else incredibly witty.

So many guests have enjoyed the current show. If you’ve not seen it, or haven’t been to Capone’s in awhile, do yourself a night out and see the current show. If you are waiting for the new show, please call (407) 397-2378 to confirm that it will be performed on the night you’d like to visit. While the new date of October 16th is the goal, there is no guarantee that it won’t be pushed back again. You know show business!
