Horrible experience
Nov 2021 • Family
I see now why magic are having big trouble getting people into the stadium. The security staff is the worst. They wouldn’t let my wife in with a purse/wallet that was .5 and inch over their limits(4.5 x 6.5). This organization Should be ashamed. Guess why they are dead last every season

Get the club seats!
Nov 2021 • Friends
The club seats at Amway are really comfortable. I also liked the proximity to a concession stand. The chicken tender basket was well done. The tenders were meaty and not overcooked. I wish they had more soda options than four. I went down to the main concourse in search of ice cream but the lines were long and slow moving. Two other warnings: no bags and all payments are cashless. I think this is one dot lower without club seats.

Visited in 2019 and it was excellent, Enjoyed watching the magic play something I'd wanted to do since I was a child. The child's play area is a great addition aswell as children can struggle to watch a full game.

No bags allowed - not even CLEAR?
Jan 2021 • Couples
I love The Orlando Solar Bear Hockey team, but the Amway Stadium is getting worse every year with the rules. I am completely on board with the masks, social distancing in the seats, and no large bags/purses (may have a weapon or bomb - I got it). For the last 5 years, all sporting events allowed a small clear bag to be brought into their stadiums. However, at today's home game (3rd of the season), I was told I couldn't bring my CLEAR Solar Bear bag into the stadium. I was told that I would have to carry my items in if I wanted them. As a female, most of our clothes don't have pockets, or pockets of any great size. So I have to carry my keys, my credit cards, phone, noise-makers, and maxipads/tampons in my hands into the stadium? Are you serious? How embarrassing! Plus, when I get to my seat... where do I put them? On the floor? That's not hygienic (dirt, debris, bacteria, and possible Covid droplets are on the floor). I was told the rule against all bags (even CLEAR bags) is because of Covid because they don't want their guards having to touch our items. CLEAR BAGS... I'm pretty sure that the guards can see through them and I can hygienicly keep all my items save and in place. This new rule is completely inconvenient to their female fans. If you are going to make rules, put some logic into them! You are losing fans and attendance is low, it's going to get worse if you continue to alienate a specific gender of your fan base! Worse part - the clear bag was given to us last year by the Orlando Solar Bears for being Season Ticket Holders. You are seriously making me consider not renewing my tickets!

Not an Orchestra
Nov 2019
Disappointing. They should be called Trans-Siberian Death Metal Rock Band. They share as much in common with an Orchestra as Mozart shared with the Beasite Boys. My wife and I dressed up and went to their show to see an Orchestra play, I should have worn jean shorts and flip flops. Change your name or change your music!

Awesome Sports Venue
Nov 2019
Me and my family came here to watch the Orlando Magic play the Knicks. Our seats were on Courtside and had one of the best views in the house. The hospitality was great and it was all very interactive. The waiters running the "in-seat" services were very attentive and friendly too, a must do if you are staying in Orlando.

Nice Venue to See a Concert (or sporting event)
Nov 2019
Nice venue to watch a concert or a sporting event. We have seen a number of both over the years with Sara Barielles the latest last fall. They have some nice bars to have a drink beforehand (though very pricey). The sound and lights are excellent.

A really fantastic stadium/arena
Jan 2020
We have been here several times now, both to watch the Orlando Magic and the Orlando Solar Bears (lets go Bears!), and weve had a fantastic experience each and every time.

It is about 30-35 minutes (with traffic) away from the Disney resorts and costs around $35 dollars each way.

They have some metal detectors which work a lot better than the ones at the Disney resort as they picked up a couple of my things that Disney didnt pick up. Once you are through security, it is a very well signposted arena with escalators and lifts/elevators, and a number of shops/merchandise stands. There are also plenty of places to buy food, drinks and snacks. There are a lot of bathrooms with good, clean facilities.

The seating in the area is generous, with really good leg room and comfortable, wide seats which will suit most body sizes and shapes. They have big cup holders for your oversized American drinks and space under the seats for bags etc.

It is a relatively compact arena, so, even the seats quite high up would have a decent view. Its always had a good atmosphere when weve been there, and the announcers and the Amway Center staff work hard to make it a good time. I go to watch football/soccer in the UK and i have a season ticket, and i find the American games a lot more interactive and fun; a lot less aggressive amongst fans! Id have no problems recommending either the Orlando Magic or the Orlando Solar Bears to families.

If you are getting an Uber/Lyft from the game, there is a special area just 30 seconds walk from the arena to get to. If you are unsure where, once you are outside go to the Orlando Magic shop, have your back facing to the shop as if you were leaving and then just walk forward. 30 Seconds walk and you are there.

In short - we love the Amway Center! A great place for a nights entertainment.

That NBA Action
Mar 2020 • Family
Went to check out the match between Orlando and Daĺlas. Drive to the place and got to find a place to park...Geico Garage across the street $20. Here's that good advice...go to Wells'Built Museum of African American History & Culture...they got parking in the back for $10. Walking distance to the Amway...try to go in the VIP section and they say yall cant come in here...so walk a bit further to the regular entrance. Walk through the metal detector but no pat down. Probably could have brought some snacks in the pockets, cause everything expensive inside.

Rocked a Heineken beer can for 10 squid. Then popcorn and water like 15 scone or something. Saw they had that Kona beer at the Papa Johns, but already in the line for the other one. I heard they got free refills of the popcorn here. But only from one of them sellers, Cause this one was not free refills. Got to wait in line like 10 minutes for a popcorn, come on man. Seen they got a place called Gringoslocos but that was after the game so i didnt get to try that one.

Overall the arena nice but dont expect to get near the players unless you sitting courtside or up with the VIP. Ticket prices were reasonable and a good night of NBA action and entertainment.
