Capone’s Dinner & Show Earns Hall of Fame Award

Big Al here from Capone’s Dinner & Show to announce the winnin’ of the prestigious Hall of Fame award. Yous probably have noticed that many businesses on the up-and-up ‘round town have recently received TripAdvisor® awards. However, the wise guys and gals have now received a Certificate of Excellence award 5 consecutive years. That puts us in the Hall of Fame and it’s time to make a racquet!

Certificate of Excellence winners include businesses that have continually delivered a superior customer experience. For over 20 years, our Orlando-area dinner show has been pleasing audiences with unique entertainment, great food and excellent service. It’s no wonder people are startin’ to notice.

Hall of Fame Award

Capone’s Dinner & Show has maintained an overall TripAdvisor bubble rating of at least four out of five over the past 12 months. With over 1,700 reviews posted by travelers that have attended the Orlando dinner show, this is quite an accomplishment. If yous are thinkin’ ‘bout bringing your gang to the show, you can do so with the confidence that they’re goin’ to have a great experience.

“We know we cannot please everybody all of the time, but we strive to each and every evening. Our wait staff are some of the hardest working people out there, and it shows by how many good reviews we receive,” said John Kucik, owner of Capone’s Dinner & Show.  “Being awarded this Hall of Fame distinction confirms that our efforts to be one of the best dinner show attractions year after year are working. We know Capone’s is a good value, now we have the accolades to support our commitment to excellence.”

Discovery Cove Does It Again!

Congratulations to Discovery Cove for receiving the number 1 ranking of amusement parks on TripAdvisor’s Travelers’ Choice competition! This Orlando theme park also won the award last year, making it a back-to-back recognition by travelers. Great job! There were several other Orlando attractions earning top spots as well.

TripAdvisor collects reviews for a year and uses a special algorithm based upon quantity and quality of guests experiences to determine the rankings. Orlando theme parks and water parks did very well in taking many of the top spots. Here are the local results of the top 25:

Attractions/Theme Parks:

1. Discovery Cove
2. Universal’s Islands of Adventure
3. Magic Kingdom
4. Disney’s Hollywood Studios
6. Animal Kingdom
7. SeaWorld Orlando
10. Busch Gardens
11. Epcot
15. Universal Studios

Water Parks:

1. Disney’s Blizzard Beach
2. Disney’s Typhoon Lagoon
3. Aquatica
9. Wet ‘n Wild
13. Adventure Island (Tampa)

It is no small feat in keeping as many travelers happy as what our local theme parks receive every day of the year. Since these rankings are based upon reviews written by actual travelers (and not based upon travel agents commissioned to book trips here), they provide a fairly honest system for ranking a guest’s experience. Those who work in the guest service industry know that there are some people who are never pleased, so to get this many people to be happy enough to write a positive review and rank an attraction a 5-star experience, is a wonderful acknowledgement.

Capone’s Dinner & Show has received a Certificate of Excellence four years in a row. We’re always happy when a guest enjoys themselves enough to take the time to write a positive review. Thank you to our guests for helping us achieve this honor once again this year!

Trip Advisor Certificate of Excellence

Florida received 10 rankings within the top 25 best beaches. Siesta Key ranked 3rd, St. Pete ranked 9th and Clearwater ranked 21st. My personal local favorite, New Smyrna Beach, did not make the list, but that is fine with me (our secret is safe for now). Of the top 10 restaurants, only Victoria & Albert’s made the list from the Orlando area, ranking 3rd. With so many attractions making the list, I was a little surprised that Orlando didn’t rank higher as a top destination. Orlando came in 10th (Miami Beach came in 25th). New York held on to the top spot. Perhaps it was the void in ranking of the top hotels – Florida did not receive a single ranking in this category.

Regardless, there are many reasons to vacation in Orlando. Be sure to visit at least one of these top attractions or water parks when you get the chance. Also, save a night for Capone’s Dinner & Show, it’s a blast from the past and an award-winning dinner show!
