Arabian Nights Unveils New Pre-Show for 23rd Anniversary
Kissimmee, Florida- Arabian Nights Dinner Attraction presents the Grand Opening of new pre-show entertainment for both general admission and VIP guests on March 1, 2011. The new pre-show includes new entertainment and upgrades in both the Great Hall waiting area and the arena.
Through months of evaluation and planning, the Executive Team at Arabian Nights developed a plan to give all guests a more informative look at the horses, provide a broader range of pre-show entertainment and allow guests to be seated and served dinner earlier.
The changes begin in the Great Hall, where a free appetizer buffet is offered to all guests and colorful booths are set up for caricature and henna tattoo artists to perform their services for an additional fee. Guests are greeted by an enthusiastic belly dancer that guides guests in belly dancing and provides a colorful overview of the evening’s events.
After enjoying the activities in the Great Hall, the arena opens approximately 1 hour before show time and the entertainment continues in both the arena and Great Hall.
When the arena opens, VIP guests are invited to partake in the Sneak Peek stable tour as part of their upgraded experience. This allows them to see and interact with many of the beautiful horses in the Arabian Nights stables. Children under the age of 18 are also invited to sit on one of the large draft horses for a perfect photo opportunity. To ensure that guests arrive in time for the Sneak Peek, VIP guests are strongly encouraged to check in no later than 30 minutes prior to the arena opening.
The youngest members of the audience are also in for a new treat during this time, as all children are invited down into the arena to choose a stick horse and play a variety of games while the Sneak Peek tours are going on.
At approximately 30 minutes prior to show time the Sneak Peek tours and the stick horse games will conclude and guests are asked to return to their seats to place dinner orders and enjoy a new special pre-show performance featuring the horses of Arabian Nights.
In this new pre-show performance, guests are introduced to several of horses that live and work at Arabian Nights. First, guests will see an Arabian Stallion demonstrate his beauty and his kind demeanor, as a special audience member is selected to meet him in the arena. Then guests will learn what it takes to prepare one of the large draft horses for the nightly show. Guests will also see how the Arabian Nights staff works with horses of all sizes to teach them a variety of tricks for the show. Finally, Einstein the talented Mustang will demonstrate a day in the life of an Arabian Nights horse.
At the conclusion of this new pre-show, all guests will be served their dinners, allowing them time to get settled and enjoy their meal before the lights go down for the main event.
For those guests looking for an even more up close and personal experience with the horses a new upgrade option is also available, the Horse Lover Package.
