We took photo’s with the Lord and Lady upon entrance after strolling down the red carpet and being crowned. I am excited we plan to attend another showing when we visit Orlando next summer. The spirited horses were breath taking gorgeous. Our knight actual won the joust and final tournament so that really made the evening exciting.The dinner and tournament was the perfect date night for us truly wonderful.

1. Cirque du Soleil “Crystal ” (New Show)

Simply eye-popping from beginning to end one of my favorite live shows.

Crytal transforms the ordinary into the extraordinary and stimulates the imagination from beginning to end with daring acrobatics, dazzling choreography, vibrant music and whimsical characters only at Disney Springs at Walt Disney World Resort. I don’t want to spoil the show so you’re going to have to see it for yourself I promise as always Cirque du Soleil shows will never let your expectations down, but leave you raving to friends months after your show attendance.

  5. lived in Florida until I was 14 then moved back to go to college and I haven’t been to any of these shows. Gonna have to go next time I’m in town.


  6. I have never heard of the first 3 shows in Orlando, but they look great. We saw the cirque du soleil show years ago and I still remember how amazing it was!


  7. I have not been to Orlando since I was pretty young. I am way too far away to visit now, but since I am in Vancouver, we do often have similar shows come through. I really love the dinner type shows. I enjoy a good meal and drinks out plus the interactive bit makes it a good date night with the husband or if I take a group a friends.

  8. I bet the Ripley’s Believe it or Not is a fun dinner show. They have one in San Antonio Tx I think. We have a small Ripley’s Believe it or not with the wax museum but the last time I went they only had a concessions stand.


  9. I think it’s been a long time since I last saw a dinner show! I sure would love to catch these whenever I find myself in the area. They all sound awesome and entertaining.
