Show Anniversaries

Sleuths Mystery Dinner Show is promoting an Annual Pass. Expand the calendar from fall dinner show deals to year round with this special! You’ll get admission to four shows within 12 months for a cost of $165.95 (plus tax). It saves over 32% off individual tickets. Plus you get discounts in their gift shop, on gift certificates and guest tickets. Regular prices range from $53.95 to  $61.95/adult and around $28.95 ages 3-11.

2015 marked Sleuths 25th anniversary which Capone’s Dinner & Show will be celebrating in 2017. It is great to know that dinner shows are standing the test of time in Central Florida.

Speaking of 25th anniversaries, Blue Man Group is celebrating their 25th year. Congratulations! In 2015 they started offering a meal and a show deal which is worth repeating here. This is a spectacular show, so why not combine it with a great dinner out? Choose from certain menu items at CityWalk restaurants for $74.50/adult and $42.50 for children. If you don’t want to use this as one of the fall dinner show deals, save up to $20 on the show-only ticket when you purchase online in advance. Regular show-only price is $70 for adults and $40 per child, so why not add a few bucks and eat?! For more information call 407-224-3200.

Capone’s is Best Value

Capone’s Dinner & Show continues to be the best Orlando dinner show bargain. Very few places can entertain a wide range of ages for over 2 hours, offer free drinks, a full buffet, and cost so little. Want a free shot glass from the Four Deuces lounge? Several of Al’s Pals VIP discounts come with a free shot glass for each adult. As one of the best fall dinner show deals, you’ll leave with a smile on your face and a full, full stomach. Not many dinner attractions can do that!

Finally, this is a great time of the year to visit the Central Florida theme parks and attractions. Don’t pay full price. There are discounts out there; you may have to do a little research, but the savings are well worth it. The fall season is upon us. Experience an Orlando dinner show while the crowds are smaller, before the busy holiday season is here.

Florida Residents: It’s Discount Attraction Ticket Time!

Capone’s Dinner & Show isn’t the only Orlando attraction offering half price tickets. Today through December 31, 2013, Florida residents can purchase tickets to Wet ‘n’ Wild at half the cost of the regular admission price!  The only catch? Some of the tickets must be purchased online (and a few other details… keep reading).

Wet 'n' Wild Water Park Orlando

Wet ‘n’ Wild is a very popular water park located on International Drive. This area is very busy with tourists, and many of them are from Florida. This discount attraction ticket deal is great for visitors to Central Florida. Whether you’re traveling here from the panhandle, northeast coast, southwest coast or the Keys, Central Florida has a lot to offer our own residents, especially this time of the year. The half price admission cost for Florida residents is $27.50 plus tax. You can purchase up to 6 tickets on one ID. It is good for one day only. Perfect for visitors.

If you live in Orlando or a nearby town, as a local resident, you might be interested in some other options which Wet ‘n’ Wild offers. You can “buy a day” and get the rest of this year free. It also includes a $5 discount, so the price is $50 plus tax. Not bad. The Day Platinum Pass is also an excellent value. You pay full price general admission ($99 plus tax) and get the rest of the year free – plus – you get to skip the regular lines! (One time per visit.) On some days, this won’t seem like that great of a value, but there will be several more weeks of warm-weather crowds, so the lines will still be longer on certain days. If you have a favorite ride, use the Express Pass on that ride and enjoy the perks. The Express Pass bargain deal must be purchased by September 2.

All of Wet ‘n’ Wild Florida Resident offers are not valid during special events, after-hour events or private parties. They all expire on December 31, 2013. The one-day half price tickets and the Day Platinum Pass are available online only. You can get the “buy a day” get the rest of the year free ticket deal at the water park.

At Capone’s, there isn’t a catch at all for their half price tickets. This Orlando dinner show offers fantastic discount attraction tickets year round, online or at the box office. If you’ve never experienced this entertaining evening of fun, do so now! They even offer a special gift for Florida residents (be sure to click the direct link to this great offer). It’s a fantastic time of the year to visit some of the Orlando area’s must-try attractions and dinner show opportunities. It’s a great time to be a Florida resident!

Orlando Attraction Offers Florida Discount

Throughout the year Orlando Attractions offer Florida residents discounts on admission into their theme parks. Now through March 31, 2013 Gatorland is offering $9.99 admission per person if you have a valid Florida license. This takes $15 off the regular adult admission cost! No matter what age, the cost is only $9.99. A family of four can visit Gatorland for about half the cost of one adult ticket at one of the other larger Orlando theme parks!

Gatorland has grown in the past few years, so if you haven’t visited this Orlando attraction lately, you should. The most exciting expansion is their zip line experiences. These thrilling adventures take you high above the park where the view is spectacular. Read more from an earlier post.

Egret photo from Orlando attractionAnother area that is increasing in popularity is Gatorland’s bird rookery. While it has been around since 1991, this alligator breeding marsh has grown into one of the largest and most accessible wading bird rookeries in Florida. Over 20 different species of birds can be seen here. Since some of these birds are endangered, Gatorland has set up a Photographer Pass program from February through June 16th. The cost runs from just $19.99 for a single day up to $99.99 for an entire year. Bird watching has grown into a huge business, and since Florida is located along many migration paths, Orlando attractions which feature bird sanctuaries are a magnet for bird watchers.

After your day at Gatorland, make your reservations to visit the Orlando attraction which doubles as a dinner show attractionCapone’s Dinner & Show. They offer a year-round Florida resident special of a free gift. The show at Capone’s is family-friendly and your entire flock (or gang) will enjoy it. The only birds you’ll see at this Orlando attraction are jail birds! They’re fun to watch though and will have you laughing like a kookaburra!

Great Theme Park Deal for Florida Residents

Tourism so far in Central Florida has been good for 2013. The warmer weather has attracted thousands of visitors from colder climates into our local theme parks to enjoy being outside without the snow gloves and boots. The warmer weather isn’t just for tourists though, and neither are some of the great theme park ticket deals that the attractions are offering. If you are a Florida resident, you are most likely enjoying this warm weather too, and now is a great time to catch up on area theme parks at a fraction of the normal cost.

The best attraction ticket deal that I have ran across lately is the Walt Disney World 3-day Discover Disney ticket. From January 5 through June 3, 2013, Florida residents can check out any of the 4 Walt Disney World theme parks for 3 days for only $199 plus tax. Add another day for only $10. There are blackout dates (spring/Easter break for many schools – March 23 through April 5), and you may only visit one park per day, but this is still a fantastic deal!

Disney Florida Resident Discover Deal
If it has been awhile since you’ve been to Disney, a lot of new attractions are in place. Two new castles in the Magic Kingdom join the Cinderella Castle. If you’re a “Little Mermaid” or “Beauty and the Beast” fan, you’ll enjoy these great additions. At Epcot you can now create your own virtual concept car and put it through its paces in the re-imagined Test Track. Pirates of the Caribbean join Hollywood Studios this year. These are just a few of the things to “discover” with this great Disney ticket deal.

Many special events will be taking place at our Central Florida attractions in the coming months. Disney is creating a great promotion for Valentine’s Week with special moments and entertainment geared to lovebirds. Disney princes join their princesses to meet park guests in special settings, prix fixe menus turn up at select restaurants and Valentine’s collectibles will be offered for the week.

If you’re a Florida resident, take advantage of the great weather and these theme park ticket deals. The weather and special offers don’t get much better than this! Enjoy!

Most Expensive Theme Park: Universal

Universal Orlando Resort is now the most expensive theme park in America. This week, Universal raised the price of a one-day, one-park ticket to $88 before tax. That’s $3 higher than a similar ticket at Walt Disney World. Other tickets for Universal’s theme parks also went up in price. There is some good news though. People who buy their tickets online will still get a discount, and Florida residents are still rewarded with some great summer deals.

First, here are the current ticket prices for Universal (these do not include tax):

    1-day: $88 adult, $82 child
    2-day: $119.99 adult ($60 per day), $109.99 child ($55 per day)
    3-day: $135.99 adult ($46 per day), $123.99 child ($42 per day)
    4-day: $145.99 adult ($37 per day), $132.99 child ($34 per day)
    1-day: $123 adult, $117 child
    2-day: $139.99 adult ($70 per day), $129.99 child ($65 per day)
    3-day: $152.99 adult ($51 per day), $140.99 child ($47 per day)
    4-day: $159.99 adult ($40 per day), $146.99 child ($37 per day)

Now for a couple of Universal’s Florida resident deals. The 3 Extra Month deal offers just that, now through August 31, when you purchase a two-park annual pass, you’ll get three additional months. They are also offering Summer Vacation Packages which start at $95 per adult. You must book the package now through August 31 and travel prior to December 20, 2012. Upgrades are available, but the basic offer sounds pretty good and includes:

  • 3-night hotel accommodations at a nearby Universal Partner Hotel
  • 2-day base ticket to Universal Orlando theme parks
  • One-day admission to Wet ‘n Wild Orlando waterpark – located just minutes away from Universal Orlando – featuring an all-new family water play area, Blastaway Beach, scheduled to open in June
  • Access to live entertainment at Universal CityWalk
  • Early park admission to experience The Wizarding World of Harry Potter and, for a limited time, The Amazing Adventures of Spider-Man (valid for travel through June 30).

So while Universal Orlando Resort may be the most expensive theme park, they are at least attempting to make it financially easier on some of their guests. Unfortunately, Disney and the other theme parks usually follow suit, so expect an announcement in the very near future with their price increases. They may not make the announcement ahead of time, so buy your tickets now, if you’re planning on visiting soon. Here at Capone’s Dinner & Show, we too must increase our ticket price to keep up with the ever-increasing gas and food costs, but more on that in my next post.

Enjoy Orlando’s theme parks and remember, after a day at the park, our gang is here to welcome you with open arms (and a few Tommy Guns), great food (all-you-can-eat buffet) and loads of comedy before, during and after our show.
