The Pirates Dinner Adventure
Florida Guide > Dining
In all the years we’ve been coming to the Orlando area, we had never gone to a dinner show. On this last trip, after researching the various options, we chose the Pirates Dinner Adventure. Ever since the release of the Pirates of the Caribbean films, my kids had become big fans of anything to do with pirates, so that was the first reason we chose this one. Secondly, though typically the food at these things is mediocre at best, I had read that this show had the best food of any dinner show in the Orlando area. After reading more about it, it sounded like it might and the fact that they offer you some options for the main entrée made it even more appealing.
They suggested that we arrive an hour before the scheduled time for our seating which we did, however, it would have been better to arrive even sooner. We waited in line for about 20 minutes to check-in. Even though we ordered our tickets in advance, you still have to acquire your seating assignment. They offer you the opportunity to upgrade your meal or seating, but we didn’t feel it was worth it so didn’t bother. After we checked-in, they took us into a large room for a pre-show and appetizers. The pre-show was very entertaining and you wouldn’t want to miss it, so make sure you arrive no less than an hour before the show. The appetizers are included in your admission, but drinks were quite pricey ($4. 50 for a soft drink! ) – better to hold your thirst until you enter the theater!
We were then taken into the theater and seated in long rows quite like sitting at a bar. I noticed that if you were not seated on the end, it would be close to impossible to get out to use the restroom. So, if you are not young and spry enough to climb over the back of the seat, then you may want to let people ahead of you so you can be on an end!
The performance began shortly after we were seated and we were served our meal while we watched. They first served beer and soft drinks. There are 2 rounds of beer included, but even though they say the same for the soft drinks, these were unlimited. Next, they offered us a choice of salad or a creamy vegetable soup. After that came the main course. We thought we had to choose one main entrée (chicken, pork, or seafood), but they actually gave us more than one. I had the pork and the seafood – it was served with Caribbean rice and red potatoes. It was actually very good and very generous on the helpings. For dessert, we were served apple cobbler with a scoop of vanilla ice cream drizzled with chocolate syrup.
The show was fun! They have an extremely talented cast. We especially enjoyed the circus type acts and acrobats. After the show, we exited back through the pre-show area where the performers were waiting so we were able to get some great photos. I would recommend this experience for people of all ages – it was a very enjoyable evening.
