Arabian Nights: A Delicious Trip Around the World

11:27 PM

Okay, I'll admit it, one of the highlights of my trip to Arabian Nights for Spring break last week with the boys was the delicious Prime Rib I was served for dinner. Yum! I still think about it. Mostly, because I don't think I have ever made any. The point is, the food was good, the entertainment was engaging and we will definitely be back!

{What is Arabian Nights?} 

For those of you who have been readers long enough, you will recall that I wrote up a review of Arabian Nights in the summer of 2011 when we visited. Well, we enjoyed it so much that we decided to make it a "must do" stop on our trip this time too. Arabian Nights is a thrilling dinner show that features stunning horses and amazing skill, as riders and trainers lead you through an enchanting story of a princess searching for her prince. There are various styles of riding portrayed as you travel around the world in search of the princess' soul mate, which means you will never want to take your eye off the show. There is danger, beauty, and plenty of humor mixed in as well.

{The Royal Table Experience}

During our visit this time, we were treated to the Royal Table Experience. This is an additional upgrade that can be purchased for $99 per ticket and is privy to a wide range of perks for guests, including free unlimited premium beverages (including alcohol), up front and center seating at the Royal Table, special place settings, early entry to the arena, dinner selections from the Princess' Premium Menu and more.

The boys thoroughly enjoyed this, especially since they could order the virgin daiquiris, which were served in light up cups, not to mention not having to worry about someone tall sitting in front of them to block their view of the show. It was a perfect way to experience all that Arabian Nights has to offer.

{The Show}

Pre-show activities in the Great Hall include a fire breathing belly dancer as well as complimentary chips and salsa and other refreshments. Before the show started, we headed into the ring to get a photo atop one of the show's horses. These animals are beautiful and we were taken through a tour of the stables led by one of the cast members. It was there that I learned they had just taken in a group of horses from a wild horse rescue organization. They train these animals and give them a better life, which I thought was amazing, all of those horses were in terrible shape when they first arrived and one particular guy named Remington was super friendly with us and anyone who walked by.

After the tour, the boys decided not to take part in the children's games going on in the ring so we headed for our seats. We ordered quickly and the show soon started. I loved the gypsy part the best. They are definitely the most daring and I held my breath each time they lept on top of the horse and even jumped through hoops of fire! At one point in the show the man two seats down from us was laughing so hard that we all started cracking up at his infectious mood. I don't want to give away too much of the story though. This show really is a complete experience.

The food is tasty, although not 5 star quality, it is well prepared and no one in our group had any complaints. There are several options to choose from, including some for those who have dietary preferences or restrictions.

{Plan a Visit}

If you are headed to the Orlando/Kissimmee area, head on over to the Arabian Nights website, view the menu, read more about the show experience and purchase tickets. Ticket prices vary depending on the package chosen and can often be found discounted or on sale.

I received tickets to attend Arabian Nights for myself and my family for the purpose of review. All thoughts and opinions expressed here are my own.
