Best Dinner Show Southern California

So you on vacation and enjoying visiting the happiest place on earth and your family asks what are we doing for dinner? Well it just so happens that within a ten mile radius there are three dinner shows, Battle of the Dance,  Medieval Times Dinner & Tournament and Pirates Dinner Adventure.

Battle of the Dance is the only dinner show that is actually in Anaheim so we will discuss this one first.
The show is about a battle between Celtic dancers and Flamingo dancers. With a some Bollywood dancing, comedy and puppet routines mixed in.

Overall the show is entertaining and with a tasty three course dinner included with tickets Battle of the Dance ends up being a fun night out. Tickets are on the expensive side but with discounts it ends up costing the price of dinner with a free show thrown in. Battle of the Dance discounts.

Next up is Pirates Dinner Adventure which is located in Buena Park, about seven miles from the resort district. Dinner and a show is the theme with a huge pirate ship in the middle of the arena. Guests are divided up into teams and the route for their pirates.

Seating at Pirates Dinner Adventure is on the tight side in some places you may be blocked out from some of the action. You get a three course meal with drinks included, and of course they are always trying to sell extras. Again gate price tickets are not cheap, but with a little planning you can save at least 50% off gate price.

Finally we come to Medieval Times Dinner & Tournament which is almost next door to the pirate show in Buena Park. This is probably the best of the three dinner shows and is not stop action from start to finish. Guest watch real jousting, sword fights and horses  galloping  up and down the area while chowing down a three course meal.

Food at all three dinners shows is enjoyable with Battle of the Dance having an edge over the other two. As far as the performance Medieval Times puts out the best production. Gate price for Medieval Times is expensive but you can get a hefty discount and save quite a few dollars.
