Orlando Dinner Show This Summer at Disney’s Animal Kingdom

Lion King DInner Show

For people who love The Lion King, this Orlando dinner show is a must-experience, fun thing to do this summer. Every Saturday through August 9, 2014, guests can enjoy a tribute as The Lion King celebrates its 20th anniversary. The special event requires a separate ticket and takes place at Disney’s Animal Kingdom theme park.

Your evening will begin with a welcome reception outside of the Harambe Theater. Light appetizers are served. Be sure to arrive at least 45 minutes early (no later than 6:15 p.m.). Entry to Harambe Nights begins at 7:00 p.m. Complimentary parking begins at 4:00 p.m. on the night of your tickets. Many guests combine this event with a visit to the Orlando theme park for the entire day; you will still need to arrive early to this attraction. When you arrive at the park, make sure to get your wristband for this dinner show at the main entrance. If you do not have a wristband, you’ll need to show your ticket to the cast member at Harambe Village to get your wristband.

After the reception, the celebration begins. Your private performance of the all-new show The Lion King: Concert in the Wild will make you feel as if you are in the Savannah. Sights and sounds from scenes in the movie are recreated within the theater. A celebrity narrator, along with a live orchestra, help transform the tale as the show is performed beautifully before you. The celebrity narrators that are scheduled to appear (subject to change) are:

  • Viola Davis – June 7, 2014
  • Avery Brooks – June 14, 2014
  • Montego Glover – June 21, 2014

  • Alfre Woodard – July 26, 2014
  • Brian Stokes Mitchell – August 2, 2014
  • Patina Miller – August 9, 2014


Not only is the show outstanding, the food is nothing short of spectacular. During the show fresh baked bread, various salads and exquisite dishes are served. There are also numerous drinks to choose from including beer, wine, mixed drinks, juices and soft drinks. Just a few of the food selections (there are many more) during Harambe Nights, include:

  • Watercress, melon, feta and berry balsamic onion salad

Once the dinner show is over, the party moves to the street. For more fun, food and merchandise, the Harambe Street Party follows the show with dancing and bands performing at the post event. Special appearances from Disney Design Group artists take place and you may even get to meet other Disney characters. Shopping opportunities include a limited-release iPhone case, an anniversary puzzle, apparel, art and other collectibles featuring The Lion King images.

Tickets to this special summer dinner show are $119 for adults and $79.00 for children (plus tax). Remember, this is for the dinner and show only. These tickets will not allow entry to any area of Animal Kingdom except the Harambe Nights designated area. Premium admission tickets, which include floor seats at the Harambe Theatre are sold out. They were reserved very soon after their release! To reserve your ticket, call 407-939-1319. Tickets are mailed to you, so be sure to order well in advance. If time does not permit mailing, they will allow you to pick your ticket up the day/evening of your visit.

If you want to treat yourself to a limited-time performance, and you really like The Lion King, this special dinner show is worth the price. Enjoy an evening in the Savannah. Listen to the rhythms of the orchestra and dance to the music of the other bands. It just might be what you need to fulfill your circle of life!

Orlando Dinner Shows & Their VIP Treatment

Most Orlando dinner shows offer some type of VIP upgrade with their ticket options. This VIP treatment could turn an ordinary visit to a show into an extraordinary evening. For some guests who are looking to make an extra special night out, it is a no-brainer. They will pay the price for extras and the best dinner show ticket options. For others that just want to have a nice night out, and stay within a budget, the VIP ticket upgrade is usually not of interest. Bargain tickets are perfect for them.

At Capone’s Dinner & Show, everyone is treated like a VIP. However, if you’d like to have preferred seating, bump your ticket up by $10 (when you purchase online) and get center section seating or choice private tables. You can also get early admission into Al’s Four Deuces Lounge with casino chips for table games and a take-home souvenir glass. These discount tickets are regularly $59.99 for adults and $39.99 for children (4-12), however, you can purchase online for half price. For less than $10 you can also add a prohibition era costume accessory, such as a boa or fedora to your outfit for the evening and dress in style. It’s hard to beat this great Orlando attraction deal.

At the Arabian Nights Orlando dinner show, the VIP experience expands on the General Admission ticket to include seating in the front three rows of the arena, and allows access to the stable tour during the pre-show. Their VIP guests have the opportunity to meet and speak to some of the performers in the show. VIP Experience tickets start at $81.99 per guest, taxes and fees included (gratuity not included).

Medieval Times VIP Package

Medieval Times offers 3 levels of upgrades at their Orlando dinner show, the most luxurious being the Kings Royalty Package. It includes guaranteed seating in the first-row of any section (or second-row, center section), entrance group photo, Knights cheering banner, commemorative programs and a Behind the Scenes DVD. The cost is an additional $20.00 per person. Regular ticket prices are $59.95/adult (+tax & processing fee) and $35.95/child 12 and under (+tax & processing fee). Other VIP dinner show packages can be purchased for $10 and $16 per person.

At The Outta Control Magic Comedy Dinner Show you’re visit might include the dinner show, a visit to the Wonder Works attraction, as well as a game of Lazer Tag. For $44.99/adult and $34.99/child, this VIP experience can be a lot of fun and fill an entire afternoon and evening. Save the Orlando dinner show for last, so your food will settle. The games and interaction can really be fun and exciting with a lot of energy expended.

Pirates Dinner Adventure regular tickets start at $65.95+ tax for adults and $39.45+ tax for children. Add an additional $25 per ticket and you’ll gain access to the Governors VIP Lounge. It also seats you in the front row (or near) with access to the show area, interaction with the pirates and a champagne toast. Add another $14.99 to your meal ticket and receive Filet Mignon or Lobster Tail with Shrimp and Salmon. Splurge another $15 and get to meet the Captain. Other piece meal offers include a souvenir program ($5) and a photograph ($15).

Sleuth’s Mystery Dinner Shows does not offer a VIP ticket to their show, but does package a hotel stay at a discounted ticket price. Their regular ticket prices are $56.95 + tax for adults and Children 3-11 are $23.95 + tax. The Orlando vacation package costs start at $134.90 for 2 adults and one night’s lodging. If you’re in Orlando for more than one evening, check out their comedy shows and have some great laughs.

If planning a day at SeaWorld and you’d like to be treated to a VIP dining experience, check out the “Dine with Shamu” offer. Pricing varies, but you can expect to pay about $29 per person on top of your park admission ticket currently at $50/week days or $82 any day for adults. You’ll be treated to a great meal while watching trainers interact with the animals.

If a day at Disney is on your vacation list, and you’d like to catch an Orlando dinner show, you can stay within the property and head over to Disney’s Fort Wilderness Resort and catch the Hoop-Dee-Doo Musical Revue. This Orlando dinner show offers 3 tiers of seating, so if you want the VIP treatment, choose the main floor (category 1) and enjoy the best seats for this frontier-style dinner show. Prices run $69.99 for adults and $35.99 for children.

So no matter which Orlando dinner show you attend, get the VIP treatment and indulge a little! Make a fun evening of it and go all out. Everyone should feel like a very important person when dining out in Orlando. Splurge and enjoy!

Capone’s Favorite Dinner Show – Back By Popular Demand

BIG News! Announcing a New Multiple Show Schedule


Unlike many Orlando dinner shows, Capone’s Dinner & Show has many, many repeat guests. (We like to refer to them as repeat offenders.) It is not unusual to meet people who have seen our show over a dozen times. How many other local dinner shows can say that?

The popularity and frequency is due in part to the variety of highly professional shows we have put on over the years. An all-new show was introduced just last year in December of 2012; before that, a new show (sequel to the original) was integrated in August of 2007. These new shows keep guests coming back for more, along with the fact that no two shows are ever alike, because there is a lot of audience participation and stand-up, off-the-cuff comedy performed by our talented cast.

Bugs Creates Chaos

Characters in the show at Capone's Dinner ShowBecause of this demand, Capone’s Dinner & Show is working toward integrating a multi-show schedule. Want to see the show featuring Bugs Moran, Sunny & Honey? You’ll soon be able to (again). Back by popular demand, this version of the original show’s sequel brought about a huge following, and the cast is anxious to get back into these delightful characters. The show name is “Bugs Creates Chaos” – look for it on our schedule to be announced in the coming weeks.

Marvel Strikes Back

marvel-smIf the newest show featuring Bunny June and Fingers Salvatorio as new parents strikes your fancy, then it will still be available on certain nights. This show brought back an original show favorite character, Detective Marvel. The show name is “Marvel Strikes Back” – schedule to be announced in the near future.

The current show features an exciting gangster shoot out where guests who “catch a bullet” win big! The shoot out is so popular, it is being written into both shows, so guests attending either production will have a chance to win prizes. Bring out the big guns!

Either show, you’re going to enjoy an all-you-can-eat dinner buffet. Included with all of the Italian/American food favorites is an all-new meat carving station with steak, turkey and pork tenderloin. Recently added, as well, is a fresh salad bar filled with seasonal favorites. Unlike many other Orlando dinner shows, we feature a beverage selection in which ALL choices are included in the ticket price, including wine, beer and cocktails. Perhaps this is another reason our guests return again and again to Capone’s Dinner & Show.

The multiple show schedule may begin as early as August. Check the web site’s show page for updates. As soon as the schedule is set, the wise guys will be sure to rat it out, um, I mean, let you in on the rumble (news). Until then, enjoy the current show – the sequel to the sequel “Marvel Strikes Back.” It’s a blast!
