Pirates Dinner Adventure – Orlando FL

I have been to Medieval Times once or thrice and as cheesy as it is, I always enjoy it. So when I heard that there was a similar experience with a pirate theme, I couldn’t wait to go. Unfortunately, it took over ten years before I was actually able to do it. On our first trip to Orlando we were all about Disney 24/7 and never left DisneyWorld. On our second trip, we were vacationing with friends, and they weren’t too keen about the idea. Finally, on our third trip, I put my foot down and insisted that we do it.


The action takes place on an authentically replicated 18th-century Spanish galleon measuring 46 feet long, 18 feet wide with 40-foot masts. Here’s the figurehead:


The sheer size of the thing makes it an impressive stage, but also the fact that it’s more than just a two-dimensional area. You spend the evening watching the pirates climbing the ropes, dueling on the deck, and swimming in the water.


Much like Medieval Times, the audience is split into six sections. Each one has a pirate for whom they cheer as the adventure unfolds with a cast of a dozen actors, singers and stunt performers. The story was kind of lame but it was such a fun time I didn’t mind. We got to bang on the table, cheer for our pirate, laugh at the jokes, jump when the cannon was fired, and gasp when the pyrotechnics were used.


The show even included some audience participation in the form of inviting children to come forward and take part in the action.  I thought that was a really nice touch.

The food … well, come on, you don’t go someplace like this for the food, do you?

All in all, we had a good time at Pirates Dinner Adventure and would consider going again if we were in Orlando. If you’re into pirates, check it out!
