These all sound like such amazing things to go to! I love the idea of having dinner and watching a show in front of you, it’s something I have never really done, not quite like this before.

Rebecca Smith August 6, 2019 - 4:16 pm

I’d love to attend dinner theater, it looks like it would be a lot of fun.

Tami August 6, 2019 - 5:53 pm

The Pirates Dinner Adventure would captivate my entire family, I believe. The Outta Control Magic Comedy Dinner Show is something my hubby and I would enjoy more as a couple.

Amber Myers August 6, 2019 - 8:10 pm

So fun! I would be happy with any of these shows, honestly. We go to Orlando at least once a year and normally stick to Disney, but we might have to branch out.

Shayla Marie August 6, 2019 - 8:30 pm

Orlando Dinner Theater sounds like a lot of fun! Especially the Pirates Dinner Adventure!

The shows look fab, my kids would love the pirates or medieval show

Megan Mann August 7, 2019 - 10:33 am

WHAT? Oh my god. I had NO IDEA any of this was available! See how close minded we can be when we see Disney and Universal and put on our blinders?

Amanda August 7, 2019 - 10:55 am

I’ve never even thought to do a dinner theatre show while in Orlando. Thanks for putting it on my radar.

Laura - Dear Bear and Beany August 7, 2019 - 5:16 pm

The shows look great. The pirate one would be a hit with my kids!

Jennifer August 8, 2019 - 3:17 pm
