The Pirates dinner show
Florida Guide > Night Life
It was my Grandson’s 5 birthday and although the trip to Orlando was special enough we wanted to find something that we though would appeal to him. As the Pirates of the Caribbean was in the fore at the time and we had also been on the pirates of the Caribbean ride at Magic Kingdom we thought that the Pirates dinner adventure would be just the thing.
You do not need to book in the quieter months but usually a good idea. There are several ways of getting discounts to this attraction, showing your Dollar car hire keys, cutting out vouchers from some of the many discount leaflets that are available is just a few examples.
Once decided on your night and time of the show you set off toward International drive, most people know the location of this, and then turn right into Carrier Drive and it is just a little way down on the right. Get there a good while before the actual show time as they have a pre show buffet, with salads and snacks and a little entertainment. There is also a gift shop with all sorts of pirate things.
The actual show is set around a 46 foot long Spanish galleon, anchored in a lagoon, the setting is really good, the audience is seated around this and there are six sections that have their own pirate to cheer on, during a performance of stunts, singing and dancing amidst cannon blasts and play acting. Children are encouraged to join in the fun and get to actually go onto the galleon and are given pirates hats!
It is a bit difficult sometime trying to eat as well as watch and join in the shouting and cheering but it is all good fun and to be honest the food is really not that brilliant but the show makes up for it especially when you are with a 5 year old that is having the time of his life!
If you are celebrating a child’s birthday for just a few dollars extra they get a birthday cake brought to them with a scroll and another special pirates hat which adds to their special day.
The actual meal consists of a choice of chicken, pork or shrimp, served with rice and vegetables, and a salad, for desert an apple turnover type thing and coffee. The usual coke, iced tea, wine and beer is bought out a couple of times too.
In all for the kids it is a good trip and my Grandson certainly enjoyed being a “ Pirate “ for the evening.
