Have Your Group Holiday Party at Capone’s Dinner Theater

Around Thanksgiving and Christmas is a great time to have a group holiday party. Whether you are planning an office party for work, a friendly get-together, or a family reunion, this is a great time of the year to come together as one big family. Who better than to help you make this a night to remember, than ‘the family’ at Capone’s Dinner & Show?!

In order to get the best group rate, 15 or more adults need to be in your party. If you don’t have that many, you’ll still get a good deal. After all, tickets are half-price online to start with! Load up your guest list with people of all ages. Capone’s Dinner & Show is fun for everyone. For a group rate, be sure to speak with one of the wise guys or gals at 407- 397-2378.

Advice for Parents Planning a Group Holiday Party

We do advise parents that our show script contains sexual innuendos similar to many comedy shows on prime-time television. For some parents, this is not acceptable. There are other dinner theaters you can plan your group holiday party at. Additionally, the action during the show is more comical than violent, but mobsters do use bats, toy guns and a prize launcher. Please use your own discretion as to what your child should experience. We have many glowing reviews from parents of children of all ages (and a few reviews, of course, that felt the show was not family-friendly).

Make your Group Happy

For your group holiday party, be sure to order one of the following:

  • Special Occasion Cake (in addition to regular dessert)
  • Dress-the-Part Costumes for Your Entire Gang
  • Souvenir Gifts for Everyone in Your Group

These items make the evening a little more special. Who doesn’t enjoy an extra dessert? A boa or fedora for everyone? That’s fun! Souvenirs will help those family members that ‘tip a few too many’ to remember the good time they had at the group holiday party for years to come!

If you want to be a high roller for the night of your group holiday party, upgrade to VIP tickets. You’ll receive early admission, choice seating, tokens (for table games at Al’s Four Deuces Lounge) and other extras. A limited number of VIP upgrades are available each show so be sure to plan accordingly. Please note: Toddlers and infants 3 years and under are not allowed in the VIP section. Furthermore, children 5 years and under are not allowed up in the balcony, so be sure your VIP tickets are for the main floor if anyone in your party is 5 years old or younger.

Orlando Dinner Show Closing: Good Night to Arabian Nights

After 25 years Arabian Nights will be closing its doors. The announcement was made on their Facebook page. The last show is scheduled for December 31st on New Year’s Eve. The start of a new year will be a new beginning for 40 horses and its 224 employees. Unfortunately, it won’t be with this Orlando dinner show.

Arabian Nights opened in 1988 and has featured beautiful horses and a royal story line for over 10 million guests. The trainers and performers have displayed extraordinary acrobatics and talent during their 10,000 performances. Now this dinner show will join King Henry’s Feast, Dolly Parton’s Dixie Stampede and SeaWorld’s Makahiki Luau as dinner shows that have closed or have been replaced. Other smaller dinner shows have come and gone in the area as well, but none as significant as Arabian Nights.

“It has been an honor sharing my passion for the beauty and magic of horses with people from all walks of life over the last 25 years. Unfortunately, we have reached a point where the marketplace demands a cheaper product than we can provide,” stated Mark Miller, owner of Arabian Nights. He has purchased an 80-acre farm where the horses will be moved to. The building off West U.S. Highway 192 (3081 Arabian Nights Blvd, Kissimmee, Florida 34747) will possibly be put up for sale.

Arabian Nights Christmas
For the rest of the year, guests will experience a Christmas version of the Arabian Nights show at a discounted rate. If you are a Central Florida resident, or a visitor to the area that would love to see these beautiful horses and trainers perform one more time,  admission tickets are available on their website. For Florida residents wanting half price tickets, visit their box office or call 1-800-553-6116 to make your reservation. General admission for the dinner show is regularly priced at $66.99 per guest, taxes and fees included.

“Our mission now is to present the best possible product for the rest of the year so that the people who have loved us over the years will be able to come back and experience the magic of our show one last time. Then we will be concentrating on how to assist our incredible staff in handling this transition,” Miller added.

It is rarely a positive thing to have a business close their doors, especially one that has been around as long as Arabian Nights. Despite some people viewing this Orlando dinner show as a “competitor,” Capone’s Dinner & Show is always concerned for any local business that is forced to close their doors, especially a dinner attraction.

With a smaller cast, crew and theatre, Capone’s has implemented many features over their 25 years of business and is in fine shape to carry on for many years to come. There will be many more nights for Capone’s Dinner & Show, however, for Arabian Nights, we say “good night and good luck.”

Christmas Day Plans

More and more places are staying open on Christmas Day. My emotions pull me back and forth concerning this. For one, it is good that the economy will be positively effected by this additional day of business. However, it is sad that a holiday such as Christmas, is not set aside for all families to be together.

Our household is good example. Due to my three grown children’s work schedule, we will not be all together at one time. We are having our main “Christmas” this evening, and a “mini-Christmas” tomorrow. Two will work today (one will miss out on dinner), one works tomorrow. Tonight is the only time my oldest can bring my 2-year-old granddaughter for grammy to enjoy for a few hours. Even though it only allows a short time for a family gathering, we’ll make the most of it and try again next holiday.

Astronaut Jon McBride

Astronaut Jon McBride will be at KSC on Christmas Day.

The theme parks in Central Florida offer a unique way for families to spend Christmas Day together. For the first time ever, the Kennedy Space Center Visitor Complex will be open on Christmas Day. Families in the area that want to do something different should definitely check it out. If you have children ages 3-11, they can get in FREE (one child per paying adult)!

“Holidays in Space” will be in full swing on Christmas Day at this Florida attraction. Santa and Mrs. Claus will drop in and carolers will be strolling through the decorated venue. Holiday traditions from countries that partner up with the International Space Station can be enjoyed. If you go, spend the additional fee to go on the KSC Up-Close Tour. While the VAB tour will continue through the next year, the LCC and launch pad tours are set to end March 31, 2013. See them while you can.

You can purchase your advance tickets at www.kennedyspacecenter.com, but the free child ticket is only available at the front gate ticket plaza. So open your presents on Christmas Day and have a most wonderful gift of all – spending a day with your loved ones at the Kennedy Space Center. It is good for the economy and great for families.

Editor’s Note: Capone’s Dinner & Show is also open on Christmas Day. In fact, we’re open every day of the year! On Christmas Eve and Christmas Day, Al has a special gift for those who come to the show. It is “the family” gathering you’ll want to attend on this special holiday!

Orlando Dinner Show with Santa

Sure Capone’s Dinner & Show has the Big Boss, Al, and some really cute dancing elves (and wise men… um, I mean wise guys). However, the Orlando attraction offering a fireside feast with the Big Man, Santa, can only be found at SeaWorld!

After dinner, families can take a complimentary family photo in front of a holiday backdrop, and children can meet Santa and tell him their holiday wishes.

SeaWorld Orlando Santa's Fireside Feast

If you are planning to attend this Orlando attraction on a weekend, and seeing the Big Man is a priority, add reservations to Santa’s Fireside Feast at SeaWorld Orlando. Reservations can be made online or by calling 888-800-5447. Seeing Santa and Mrs. Claus is a festive way to celebrate Christmas.

If you want the family to meet the Big Boss, he’s available every night of the year at Capone’s Dinner & Show for the same price as the Fireside Feast (with coupon). Your gang will enjoy over two hours of entertainment as well as a feast fit for a, well, boss. This Orlando attraction sure knows how to put on a show. The gangster shoot out is a real blast! Feel free to pass on your holiday wishes to the Big Man through the wise men guys. Just don’t expect to sit on anyone’s lap!
