Arabian Nights, voted #1 dinner show in Orlando. It is a magical tale of love and triumph that features 60 horses from around the world. The production features Walter Farley’s Black Stallions and is performed nightly in an arena that seats 1200. The "Palace of Horses" has received millions of guests over ten years, and provides the backdrop for a dramatic story that delights guests with beautiful horses and continuous action.
The story revolves around the wedding of the Prince and Princess and guests are invited to share in the wonder and magic created in this romantic tale on horseback.
To start with let me say that this place is spectacular! The evening started with a VIP Tour (cost for the tour is $15 in addition to the dinner ticket price but free if you make your reservations on their website - link can be found below). This tour is great! The tour starts with a complimentary preshow beverage in the VIP Lounge before you are escorted into the arena for a meet and greet with some of the stars (horse and human), on the arena floor, and a wonderful tour of the stables where they tell you more about the horses in the show. One of the other perks of going on the VIP Tour is that you get seated before the other guests and in one of the first rows in the arena.
After the tour they begin serving you one of the best meals I have had at a dinner show. First they bring out a wonderful garden salad and then you are given your choice of Prime Rib, Vegetable Lasagna, or some sort of chicken (baked I think) which are all served with baby red potatoes and a vegetable. The youngsters are offered crispy chicken fingers, which looked wonderful, with baby new potatoes and a vegetable. I can't speak for the other selections but the Prime Rib was fantastic. I was very suprised at the high quality of the food. As you are being served your salad (if you take the tour) they begin seating the other guests as well as bringing you as much soda, beer, or wine as you like. As they continue serving the other guests the show begins and, if you can't tell by the photos, this show goes all out. The trick riders, storyline, characters, and theatrics are all top notch. As your dinner is completed and the beautiful Princess is being wed you are treated to a slice of the wedding cake and let me tell you if you have a sweet tooth (or not) you will LOVE this cake.
After the show some of the performers (once again horse and human) stick around for a few photos and Q&A. This whole experience was one of the best I have ever had at a dinner theater and I would highly recommend spending the money and time to check this out. I can't imagine that you would be disappointed.
