Pirates Dinner Adventure
Pirates Dinner Adventure shows take place inside a massive simulated lagoon. Guests are introduced to the pirates, then seated in one of six pirate ships that surround the full-size galleon, where the show takes place. Enjoy tray-passed predinner appetizers while waiting for the show, then cheer for the pirate representing your ship throughout the performance. Guests, including children, get a chance to participate in the action aboard the main ship.
Book your tickets ahead of time to guarantee entry, as they often sell out. Upgrade your seats for better views and more space; upgrade your meal to include extras such as lobster, cake, or champagne; or add on photos with the cast, souvenirs, and special announcements.
