    Hello! We have an open evening on our upcoming trip in a couple weeks and I was considering a dinner show in Orlando. Does anyone have a preference/opinion about the Pirates Dinner Adventure Show VS. Medieval Times? Or just skip it all together? lol :confused3

    I've been to both Medieval Times and Pirates and while enjoying them both - I do like Medieval Times better.
    It was about 6, maybe 7 years ago but Pirates seemed very comedic to me and wasn't was what I had expected but was a good show.
    Medieval times was thoroughly enjoyable from start to finish - but I have always been a fan of that theme.

    You didn't mention what ages were in your group...that may be something to consider, as well as the food being served.
    I'm dying to go back to Medieval Times on the next trip but they have food my son won't eat - vegetarian who isnt satisfied with soup.

    Capones is another to consider - they actually include alcohol into the food list. :thumbsup2

    Medieval Times gets my vote.

    I always try to fit it in during my visit.

    If you have kids, Medieval Times over Pirates. Anything over Pirates, really, but Medieval Times is the best for kids.

    If everyone is 18 and up, I urge you to look into Treasure Tavern (next door to pirates but so much better). Best food and best show of the bunch.
