    has anyone done either of these or anything new recently that is worth the evening away from the parks?

    OOO I'd be interested in hearing about them too.

    I didn't like arabian nights as much as I expected.. I knew it would be mainly horsey but was surprised at the level of dust around and thought the way the staff stood at the end of the row when we came to left basically expecting tips was a bit much.

    Medieval times was cute but not sure I'd go back unless something's changed in the show to make it worth seeing a second time

    I've been to medieval times at Myrtle beach and enjoyed it, I usually find I want to spend my time in the parks though and make the most of my tickets :)

    Personally, I feel that if you've done those dinner shows once, you've done them.

    Off site dining can be quite a lovely experience, and much more cost effective (presuming you have your own transport). There are many great places to dine, and some that aren't so great, but fun. Melting Pot is one that comes to mind. Not fabulous food, but fun.

    If you are a steak lover then there are several excellent places, Ruth's Chris, Morton's, Charley's Steakhouse, Del Frisco's, Capital Grille, Bull and Beat Steakhouse... there are really loads of places to get a great steak off property.

    Seafood is a bit more challenging, but Big Fin is fabulous. Red Lobster, believe it or not can be decent, if you order the fresh choices. If you like old Florida and don't mind rubbing elbows with the locals (and are a bit brave about appearance and location) there is Lee and Rick's up on Kirkman, almost to 50.

    Anyway, there really are many great choices offsite. You can have a meal that outshines any at WDW, and is less expensive. You can also spend enough to mortgage the farm, but you'll get a fabulous meal, where at Disney it's a chancy prospect anymore. (V&A's excluded as I've never been, and it gets consistently rave reviews).






    Welcome to our new home! It's a lovely and friendly place. If you haven't joined yet, do register. It's a great place to make friends and share all those Disney secrets!!
