Halloween at Orlando Theme Parks Offer Chills

It’s Fall! Are you waiting for a chill in the air? Here in Florida, lower temperatures will be arriving in the coming weeks. The chills, however, are already here! Halloween at Orlando theme parks offer chills and are filled with spine-tingling experiences if you dare visit them after dark. If you want to have the seasonal fun without the scares, a daytime visit to the attractions is a great alternative, especially for the little ones.

Magic Kingdom“Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party”

Mickey's Not So Scary Halloween PartyWalt Disney World opened “Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party” at the Magic Kingdom on August 25th. It runs through November 1st. This event lets children trick-or-treat in costume at various locations throughout the Orlando theme park. Nightly special events have a Halloween spin on them, such as the “Boo-to-You” Halloween parade and the nightly Happy HalloWishes fireworks display. Other events are also scheduled just for children (and their parents). Special merchandise with a Halloween imprint is also available as are themed treats. Candy corn soft serve ice cream, anyone? This event is perfect for children. It provides a wholesome fun activity that the entire family will enjoy. You might even feel a chill as creepy colors crawl over Cinderella’s castle. A spell your family will never forget. Tickets are required and are only available on certain nights. Visit Disney’s website for more information.

SeaWorld’s Halloween Spooktacular

Count's Halloween breakfast at SeaWorldIf you are looking for a “fantasea” chilling experience, go to SeaWorld. Every weekend from late September through October, SeaWorld’s Halloween Spooktacular takes place and is included with your admission. This is a daytime event where children can trick-or-treat and take part in other Fall-like activities within the Orlando theme park. Visit Penelope’s Garden Party and let your kids have fun dancing with sea fairies and pumpkin fish, as well as create sea-themed art and crafts. If you’re hungry, visit Count von Count and enjoy a Spooktacular breakfast (additional fee). This is a very fun and memorable meal for the entire family to enjoy during Halloween at Orlando theme parks.

LegoLand’s Brick-or-Treat

Brick-Or-Treat at LegoLandAnother attraction where your children can trick-or-treat at is LegoLand’s Brick-or-Treat event. Every Saturday and Sunday in October, children can wear their costumes and participate in fun activities such as a scavenger hunt with ghouls, ghosts, and goblins. The largest LEGO Jack-O-Lantern in the world will be there, which makes for a fantastic family photo. This not-so-chilling event is perfect for children 12 years and under, especially if they like to build things.

Busch Gardens Howl-O-Scream

Howl-O-Scream Haunted House

Howl-O-Scream Haunted House

The last event for Halloween at Orlando theme parks to start is at Busch Gardens. From September 22 through October 29, Busch Gardens features their annual Howl-O-Scream event on Thursdays, Fridays, and Saturdays after dark. This adult-targeted event transforms Busch Gardens into a late-night party with haunted houses, scare zones and a live show. Ticket prices vary, as there are many “evil” upgrades. For the kids wanting to celebrate Halloween at Orlando theme parks, every Saturday and Sunday kids are invited to Sesame Street® Safari of Fun Kids’ Weekends. Kids can wear costumes, trick-or-treat, enjoy exclusive crafts, explore through a hay bale maze and play fall-inspired activities and games.

Halloween Horror Nights at Universal Orlando

Of course, tUnversal Studios haunted house.he grand-daddy of all of the Halloween Orlando theme parks events (for adults) is Halloween Horror Nights at Universal Orlando. This annual event has already started (Sept. 15) and runs through November 4 on select nights. This years’ nightmares will be brought on by visiting nine terrifying haunted houses, spine-chilling creature-filled scare zones and outrageous live shows. Additionally, guests may experience many of the park’s most exciting rides and attractions.

Ticket prices vary with several options including a Frequent Fear Passes. How anyone’s heart could survive more than one evening at this Orlando theme park during Halloween is beyond me. This is one extremely creepy, scary event!


An Alternative to Spending Halloween at Orlando Theme Parks

If you prefer less-ghastly events. How about a chilling beverage at Capone’s Dinner & Show on Halloween night? Come chill with some gangsters and dames from the prohibition era. If you’re up for a fantastic dinner & show, join Al and the gang on October 31. Dress up as a mobster or put on your flapper dress. Need an accessory? Stop by our gift shop. We have fun fedoras, feather boas, and many other costume accessories. This event is suitable for children, and they are welcome to wear their costume.

July’s Grand Prize Winner at Capone’s Dinner & Show

Al and the gang wish to congratulate Diane Boudreau for being July’s Grand Prize winner at Capone’s Dinner & Show Sunday, July 25th. During our “25 Years of Memories” anniversary celebration we’ll be giving some lucky stiff a grand prize on the 25th day of each month. Next month it could be you! The next grand prize will be awarded on Friday, August 25, 2017.

Make Reservations

Diane, a.k.a. Mammo (now that she is one of Al’s gals) came all the way from Boston just to see the show! Imagine that. What a dedicated dame! We’re fairly sure Mammo has some connections from the Boston syndicate. While her winning is a little hinky, Al assures us it was all above board. He should know. Nothin’ goes on in his joint without full disclosure.

Yous sees, the night of Mammo’s visit, lady luck was on her side. The wise guys asked this random broad to pull the winning ticket. She pulled her very own number! What are the odds? Well, one in several hundred. Better than odds at pickin’ 6 numbers, but still very unusual. With this being Mammo’s first visit to our speakeasy, we know she didn’t have connections to set up a sting. So here’s to a square winner!

July’s Grand Prize Winner

“Mammo” was the big winner of July’s anniversary prize, but this ain’t her. Seems she is the shy type and put her son up to take the fall, er a, used him in the evidence photo.

July’s Grand Prize Winner Experience

Mammo’s favorite part of the evening was the great servers and cast. It’s hard not to fall in love with our goons and gals. It doesn’t take a pushover to appreciate their hard work. Servin’ drinks, takin’ shots from plugs, all while being a vital part of our new show. We also think our guests are the bee’s knees. They take good care of our gang, and we’re happy to welcome them into ‘the family.’

The least favorite part of Mammo’s experience was “nothing.” Her words exactly. Our chopper squad didn’t get near her & there were no promises of cement shoes – we swear! With great food and a great show, at a great price…what’s not to like? If you need more reasons to love us, read our countdown list. Capone’s Dinner & Show remains the best value of any Orlando dinner show.

Mammo’s prize was a pair and a half Cs in her pocket, plus a C note to spend in our very own gift shop. Hold on though, that’s not all. She also received 4 tickets to Capone’s Dinner & Show! We’re fairly certain some new clothes and shoes are headed for Mammo’s closet. She’ll probably drop a dime on her husband too. Afterall, he is the one that informed her of our joint. Hopefully, Boston is ready for this swanky kitten! Of course with tickets to our show, her mob will always be welcomed back. We love our repeat offenders.

Again, we’d like to congratulate July’s grand prize winner, Diane Boudreau. Capone’s Dinner & Show hopes that the evening’s experience was the cat’s meow and will be a great memory for years to come.

June’s Grand Prize Winner at Capone’s Dinner & Show

Al and the gang wish to congratulate Cristy Miller for being June’s Grand Prize winner at Capone’s Dinner & Show Sunday, June 25th. During our “25 Years of Memories” anniversary celebration we’ll be giving some lucky stiff a grand prize on the 25th day of each month. Next month it could be you! The next grand prize will be awarded on Tuesday, July 25, 2017.

Make Reservations

Cristy, a.k.a. Chris (now that she is one of Al’s gals) came all the way from Pennsylvania just to see the show! Imagine that. What a dedicated broad! If Chris had been around during the Progressive Era, she would know that PA has quite a history with speakeasies. In fact, in the early 1920s, there were as many as 16,000 speakeasy establishments active during Prohibition. Known for their breweries, this part of our Nation didn’t give up easily on its giggle juice. If you’d like to read more about Chris’s home state during Prohibition, Annie Anderson has written an excellent article.

This was Chris’s first visit to our speakeasy dinner show. She discovered our joint by reading an advertisement. Glad it caught her attention! Hoping to earn her approval, the gang worked very hard, as they do each evening. Of course, the prize she won would have gotten anyone’s approval. At the end of the evening, thankfully, she gave us a thumbs up! She’s not the only one approving of our job here. Capone’s Dinner & Show has recently been awarded a Certificate of Excellence for the 7th year in a row by Trip Advisor. But more on that later…back to our June’s grand prize winner.

June’s Grand Prize winner

“Chris” was the big winner of June’s anniversary prize, seen here with the gang with thumbs up indicating her approval.

June’s Grand Prize Winner Experience

Chris’s favorite part of the evening was the show. The new show really is our best yet. Experience it yourself. You’ll feel like a true part of this prohibition era speakeasy as you dodge questions from a snooping Detective, watch dancing dames, hear smooth and exciting jazz vocals, and laugh at our quick-witted gangsters. Don’t be surprised if you become a part of the show!

The least favorite part of Chris’s experience was “nothing.” Nothin’! Zilch! Zippo! A big goose egg! Just the way we like it. From the time you enter the theater to the time you depart, our mob is trying to make your experience at our Orlando dinner show great in every way.

Chris’s prize was two and a half Cs in her pocket, plus a C note to spend in our very own gift shop. But wait, that’s not all. She also received 4 free tickets to Capone’s Dinner & Show! Now she can become a repeat offender and drag some other members of her gang in with her. You’d think she would spend her winnings on her return visit here, but no. She claims she is spending her winnings at some clip joint called Disney. Guess the mouse will be glad to hear that!

Again, we’d like to congratulate June’s grand prize winner, Cristy Miller. The gang at Capone’s Dinner & Show hopes that the evening’s experience was the cat’s meow and will be a great memory for years to come.
