Some 40 costumed performers and more than 60 beautiful horses team up on a nightly basis in Orlando to present the Arabian Nights Dinner Show. Voted the best Orlando dinner show on several occasions, the Arabian Nights Orlando Spectacle invites guests to witness a magical love story that makes quite a few dazzling twists and turns along the way. After enjoying pre-show entertainment and a three-course meal that includes unlimited beer, wine, and soda, the 1 hour and 30 minute show begins. Easily one of the top overall Orlando shows, Arabian Nights will take you for a ride, that's for sure!
The opening of the Arabian Nights Orlando dinner show revolves around a lavish birthday celebration for Princess Scheherezade. As the story begins to unfold, numerous horse acts steal the show, demonstrating the talents of the performers and their horses. From bareback riding stunts to a heated chariot race, the performers showcase their mastery in a show that is virtually akin to an extravagant circus. Special effects, which include snow during the winter shows, combine with ornate costumes, expert lighting, and the talents of the performers to make for one truly unforgettable spectacle. After the Princess's birthday party, the royal heiress goes on a quest to find a Prince. The Prince soon becomes a star of the show himself, as does the black stallion that eventually emerges, bringing on the climax of the story. An intense battle ensues, depicting what you might expect in an ancient Middle Eastern duel. If this kind of show sounds appealing to you, you can also consider catching the Medieval Times dinner show, which tells a dramatic story as well.
During the holiday season, the Arabian Nights Orlando show alters its storyline to include Santa Claus, who visits the Princess to bring her good cheer while the Prince is away searching for the perfect gift for his love. It has got all the trappings of a great Christmas story and is certainly recommended for families, as is the original show. When you get tickets to the Arabian Nights Dinner Theatre, you'll enjoy what is tantamount to a Broadway performance in New York City. The 140,000-square-foot Arabian Nights Dinner Theatre isn't exactly akin to a Broadway theatre, however, and it can fit up to 1,200 dinner guests. It's a good idea to purchase your tickets to the Arabian Nights Dinner Theatre in advance, just to make sure that you can get a seat for the night that you have in mind. Special box seats are available for weddings and large group parties. Discounts for the various Orlando dinner shows are usually easy to find when you book ahead, which means that you'll have more left over for things like hot air balloon tours or a round of Orlando golf. Even if you don't get discount tickets to the Arabian Nights Dinner Theatre, what you will pay is definitely worth it.
The Arabian Nights Dinner Show first opened in 1988, and it has been going strong
ever since. Founders Mark and Galen Miller wanted to get world-class horses
and trainers together to put on a show like no other, and they definitely succeeded.
Mark Miller grew up on an Arabian horse farm, and it is his familiarity with
horses that played a significant role in the creation of the show. The horses
that are featured in the Arabian Nights Dinner Show consist of fourteen different
top breeds from around the globe, so if you like horses, this show will not
disappoint. Among the featured entertainers of the Arabian Nights Orlando performance
are Joanne Mintell and Diana Sauer, both of whom are expert horseback riders.
All of the horseback performers in the Arabian Nights Dinner Show would easily
feel at home in a Texas rodeo,
and you can expect plenty of skilled maneuvers during the production.
