Pirate’s Dinner Adventure is celebrating the season with an all-new holiday version of its popular nighttime theatrical experience, renowned as the “World’s Most Interactive Dinner Show.” After 10 years of pillaging, pirating, and plundering, this infamous band of buccaneers, cast, and crew will set sail on the merriest Christmas adventure ever seen on the high seas. For a limited time only, November 25 – January 6th, Pirate’s Christmas Dinner Adventure will feature an exciting new holiday story line, spectacular sets, seasonal music, and a shipload of yuletide surprises throughout the show.
The entire Pirate’s Dinner Adventure Theatre in Orlando, FL will be decked out in true pirate fashion with a frosty twist for this swashbuckling holiday celebration. This family-friendly holiday experience kicks off in the pre-show area decked out with snowmen, brightly colored garlands, and holiday trimmings. Turkey and roasted chestnuts add a festive dash to the holiday appetizer buffet. Fresh from the North Pole, St. Nick is on hand for photos. In the museum, a nativity will feature live cuddly barnyard animals available for gentle touching by young lubbers. The Christmas story begins during the pre-show as the evil Magistrate tries to halt the holiday festivities, the princess is captured, and Magee the Elf — a pirate wannabe — is called on to save the day.
Jack Frost has come to town as a spectacular wintry scene of a galleon on the high seas greets guests entering the theatre in the round. Anchored in a 300,000-gallon indoor lagoon, and appearing frozen in time, sits an authentic replica of an 18th century Spanish galleon with a 40-foot mast. Giant icebergs surround the ship, icicles hang from her bow to stern, and snow blankets huge sections of the deck. The audience is swept up in a snowy, cold winter’s eve as dramatic lighting bathes the entire scene in a chilling white light.
Led by their own pirate mascot, guests go back in time to the 1800’s as pirates dazzle, thrill, and entertain with spectacularly choreographed swordplay, aerial artistry, and dynamic duals. Magee the elf transforms into a pirate in a thrilling, heroic effort to save both Christmas and the Princess.
Pirate team leaders enlist guests to join the fun in thrilling head-to-head competitions pitting one audience group against another. Over 150 guests each night will find themselves in the middle of the show as they don costumes and join the pirate action. New for the holidays, youngsters will be able to join the March of the Toy Soldiers and help Magee save Christmas. The show ends will a spectacular, pyrotechnics-filled, audience-involving celebration guaranteed to raise the roof.
The merriment continues in the post-show area, where guests can mingle with the swashbuckling stars of this holiday celebration. And after the last performance of the evening, guests can party like a pirate at the Buccaneer Bash Dance party, included with each paid admission. The high-energy DJ disco party features a state-of-the-art sound and special effects system and dancing to a wide variety of music.
Pirate’s Christmas Dinner Adventure serves up a hearty, satisfying four-course feast that includes appetizers, salads, and a dinner with a choice of chicken and pork or shrimp, along with steamed vegetables, roasted potatoes, and Caribbean rice. Dessert is warm apple cobbler a la mode. Complimentary beer, wine, coffee or soft drinks are included during dinner, and vegetarian “Captain Kid’s” meals are available upon request.
