Our Brandcation dinner on Saturday was provide by Arabian Knights, Orlando’s #1 Dinner Attraction.
Arabian Knights is a huge theatrical show complete with a full dinner and amazing actors and horses.
Arabian Nights, the Most Honored Dinner Show in the World, is located in Orlando’s tourist heartland and close to Walt Disney World® Resort, Universal Studios® Resort and the Sea World Adventure Park.
At the exciting Arabian Nights Dinner Attraction, guests enter the magical world of Scheherazade, a young girl with a bigger-than-life dream of becoming a beautiful Princess. Two magical Genies take Scheherazade and her guests on a thrilling and romantic adventure filled with music, lights and daring acts where anything can happen, from a square dance on horseback to chariots racing and Gypsies leaping, flipping and dancing on moving horses’ backs!
The large-scale theatrical production at Arabian Nights features riders and acrobats performing with more than 60 horses, including Walter Farley’s Black Stallion. The nightly performances, featuring delicious menu options, give guests the most incredible experience among Central Florida’s dinner shows.
The entire Arabian Nights performance and dinner show is hosted inside the Palace of Horses, the world’s largest indoor equestrian arena for a permanent show, where more than 14 different breeds of horses are trained and cared for by the dedicated staff of this amazing dinner theatre production.
When we arrived at Arabian Knights I was concerned over how long the line was. Technically we had a group reservation but it didn’t look like there was any way there was enough room for everyone. But there was, the arena where you eat and watch the show was huge! We had great seats, although I don’t think there were any bad seats because of the way it was laid out.
The menu selection had pork, chicken and beef as the main entree and I ordered the pork. I was skeptical because it’s easy to dry out pork but it was FANTASTIC.
Here is more information about their menu:
Individually plated three-course dinners feature several entree choices. All meals (excluding vegetarian lasagna and children’s meal) are served with steakhouse mashed potatoes and seasonal vegetables.
- Sirloin steak
- Grilled chicken breast

- Vegetarian lasagna

All meals are served with a house salad, dinner rolls and unlimited Bud Light beer and Pepsi-Cola products. Dessert is a choice of Oreo fudge brownie or New York style cheesecake with strawberry sauce.
Other drinks, including wine, are available for purchase before and during the show.
The show started almost immediately after we were seated. The lights went down, smoke filled the arena, and magic happened! Thanks to my mom, I have a love and fascination with horses, and not a scene went by in this show that there weren’t gorgeous horses and people in amazing costumes on the floor.
Flash photography is allowed, but it is hard to get good shots in the dark, even with a fancy digital SLR camera. Still, I managed to capture some great ones and I actually found myself using my zoom lens to get a closer looks at the actors and the horses.
I really had a great time and I think my kids would enjoy it as well.
