Owner description: Arabian Nights' Royal Celebration presents a tale of intrigue, magic, and love. This Orlando dinner show invites guests of all ages to witness the magnificent wedding of the beautiful Princess Amirah and the bold Prince Raswan, and the joining of the two most powerful Bedouin kingdoms, the Saglawi and the Raula. Join us, as the magic that still exists is the magic of the great Genie and the mysterious Sorcerer takes us to the corners of the earth to deliver spectacles of wonder on horseback. See the grace of the splendid Black Stallion. Admire the mystical unicorns, last of their kind. Watch in awe as the performers for this royal wedding display daring and skill with incredible acrobatics and intricate riding. In all of its majesty, this will truly be a wedding to remember. But, perhaps, not all is as it seems.Great for kids and Groups. We offer a Full Bar selection. Ask about our VIP/Backstage Tours available for an additional price.

We first saw this show 9 years ago prior to our youngest son (now 8) being born. My wife has ridden horses competitively for most of her life so the interest in a show like this comes easy. I read about a dozen of the reviews and was a bit taken aback by those who were not happy with the experience and apparently were not understanding what they were going to see and what they would be offered. We thoroughly enjoyed the show (got the VIP package) and visiting the stables while also meeting several of the performers. Many of them stayed around after the show to talk to the audience, and allow folks to pat the horses etc. The VIP package is only a little more $'s and a great value. The only reason I took off a 'star' is that indeed, the food is substandard but really....you're paying about $10-15 for the food. The chicken itself was good, as were the rolls - the pasta/sauce was funky. Chocolate cake was yummy...vanilla cake had a chemical after taste. And yes...beer was expensive. You could have all the soda/water you wanted and the waiters were pleasant and attentive - not an easy task in that environment. I think they should just stop the 'dinner' part altogether and perhaps sell snacks. If you want spic'n span, brand new facilities - go to LegoLand. If you want to see some pretty incredible performances by beautiful horses, riders and performers - it's worth the cost (and buy online for a 25% discount).

Outdated and basically poor value for money. It reminded me of an old circus. Venue not great - you sit on hard benches with a small bar in front of you. We opted for the upgraded package which meant that our bench was on the second row. The upgrade was supposed to include unlimited wine and beer but we were told that this was stopped some time ago. Food was ok but served in a very basic way. Entertainment - lots of horses, a terrible story line (if that's what you could call it) and really something that as a package was not in any way value for money.

The horse show was pretty impressive during parts and pretty cheesy at others. Food tastes like cafeteria food. Pretty bland and cheap. Plates, cups, and flatware reminded me of what a high school lunchroom would use. Dessert tasted like it had freezer burn. It's totally not worth the money when there are so many other options in Orlando.

Thank goodness we got these tickets at a discounted rate ....( timeshare review ) the place was built in the late 80's and 25 years later it looks the exact same...... Would be better if Dixie stampede or another well known dinner show would buy it and remodel it...... Although the waiter was awesome and who can go wrong getting to see horses perform!!! Anyway don't pay full price for this show or you will regret it

My wife and I attended with two other couples. The food was good, you cannot expect restaurant, made to order quality. There was a reasonable selection and between the six of us there were four different choices made and everyone felt that their meal was fine. The entertainment was very good, obviously if you are a horse or animal lover you will enjoy the show. We felt that it was a very enjoyable evening.
