guests are seated thirty minutes prior to show time and are met with the largest arena of any Orlando dinner show. At their seats guests will find a prepared salad and a menu. For the evening guests can choose between Pot Roast on Puff Pastry, Sirloin Steak, Pulled Pork, Roasted Chicken Quarter, Chicken Tenders and Vegetable Lasagna. Service is prompt and the waiters are attentive so don't hesitate to ask for anything. I ordered the Pulled Pork and it was savory and satisfying, and the portion was large. Served with mashed potatoes, vegetables and a roll, the meal was typical dinner show food but definitely filled me up. The chocolate cake at the end tasted like a Little Debbie brownie treat, and I mean that in the most positive way. Drinks packages are available for the show, too. The Basic Drink Package is $5, and includes unlimited Budweiser beer and California Blush wine. The Premium Drink Package is $15 and includes an unlimited selection of Burgundy wine, Chardonnay, Margaritas, Rum Runners, or our House Hard Lemonade.
