Dining With Al Capone

The Kissimmee area has much to choose from when it comes to dining, but our favorite is dinner and a show. It’s a fun way to experience some local flavor, and who cares if it’s raining?

We ate at Capones Dinner and Show, an interactive experience that is cute for all ages. It was a whole lot of “kitch” and meant to be fun and silly. It reminded me of another restaurant chain’s slogan- “Delightfully tacky, yet unrefined”. It for sure fell under that category. One of the running gags of the evening was “Fork You!” while brandishing- you guessed it- a fork.

@Kia – My Favorite Way To Travel

Over the past week I had the extreme pleasure of driving the 2012 Kia Optima Hybrid around Florida. This was my first time driving a hybrid, and I have to admit I am impressed. (This may be the only car I will ever rent again…)

The Kia Optima Hybrid is a very interesting vehicle. This car is a hybrid which means it runs on gasoline and electric. It charges by breaking, and driving. It also saves you gas money and charges by coasting, which helps ‘fuel’ the batteries, and in turn help use less gas. This leads to a much better fuel economy when compared to other vehicles. The Optima Hybrid has a highway fuel economy of 40 mpg, while a comparable non-hybrid model gets about 34. This may not seem like that much of a difference, but in actuality it is quite huge.

Medieval Times Dinner and Show

A feast for the eyes as well as the stomach, Medieval Times is a great show that the whole family can enjoy. No worries, the little ones won’t be afraid- the show is very tame (rated G!) while still offering tons of fun and action.

Make sure you arrive about an hour early to give yourself ample time to explore the Medieval Village, the only one in the country. Launched in Spain in 1973, and in Kissimmee, Florida just 10 years later, it is widely regarded as the longest running and most popular dinner attraction in North America- and I have to concur. During this 2 hour live performance, you and your family will experience a glace back in time- when knights defended the realm, and chivalry was not dead.
