    Has anyone tried the Capones Dinner show? Strangely it's one that I've never come across before but it LOOKS like it could be fun?

    If anyone has been, how much audience participation is there? (I'm a chicken :D )

    We went a few years ago. They frequently have a BOGO ticket offer. You are seated at long tables. There is an Italian buffet (edible, we didn't leave hungry) that you help yourself too. I don't recall there being a huge amount of audience participation. It seems that the people who get called on are the ones that announce they are celebrating something. That seems to be the norm for most of these type shows. It was fun and certainly a good value with the coupon. i'd go back.

    Thanks Johnie! It's apparently not in a great area of Orlando but I'd like to try it

    I don't think it's a bad area. We often wander around the shops etc near Capones and have never felt uneasy.

    I really enjoyed it. Loved the pizza, TONS of wine, but I really really really did hide under the table there. Not been back for that reason :lol:

    I think they should give everyone some kind of little card that you can put in front of you, green for ok to be involved, red = I'm a chicken.

    I have done all of the dinner shows mentioned.

    Pirates- was ok. I wasn't particularly impressed at all. Our tickets were free.

    Out of Control dinner show- I had such a good time! I think the free wine had a lot to do with it. We had a BOGO coupon.

    Tony and Tina's wedding. It was fun. You didn't have to dance if you didn't want to. I did NOT like the fact that you had to pay for soda. Can't remember if we had a coupon or not. Strangely enough, we met several people from our little town there.

    Capones- lots of fun. WE had a BOGO coupon as well.

    I think that would be a beacon to be picked on instead!

    I think my favourite has been Arabian Nights, followed by Dolly's Dixie Stampede (now closed).

    See I didn't rate those at all. Arabian nights was great if you liked horsies but was horribly dusty and terrible food

    I think we liked medieval times the best of the off disney shows through the seaworld luau is our favourite

    I loved Arabian Nights....from the moment the black stallion enters the arena it has me hooked. I honestly didn't notice any dust and, the food was some of the best I've had at a dinner show:lol:

    :doh2: How could I forget Spirit of Aloha and Makahiki Luau......can I change my mind....I loved both of them!

    We haven't done the seaworld Luau in many years but do the Disney one each time we go! How do you think the seaworld one compares?

    Well, I enjoyed the fun of Spirit of Aloha best of all and I think this is the one best suited for children.
    DH enjoyed the Makahiki Luau at SeaWorld best....may have something to do with the scantiness of the ladies clothing there :lol: I did enjoy this but I think there was more continuous entertainment in the Disney version.

    The food....better at Disneys Aloha :yes:
