Arabian Nights Orlando (Permantly Closed)
Arabian Nights, the Kissimmee dinner show with performing horses and a royal story line closed at the end of December in 2013 after 25 years of entertaining tourists and residents.
The attraction’s revenue could no longer support the kind of show he wanted to present. It reached a point where the marketplace demanded a cheaper product than they could provide.
Over the years, the attraction, which opened in 1988, has presented 10,000 performances for 10 million visitors. The final performance was on New Year’s Eve 2013.
Below is a description of the show that is now closed:
Set in a horseshoe-shaped arena with a dirt floor, the Arabian Nights show spotlights Al-Marah Arabian horses with acrobatic riders. Customers, who payed $66.99 for general admission, ate dinner in stands surrounding the action. The show was freshened with new acts and narrative during the summer and dubbed “The Royal Celebration,” a story about a romantic merger of two Bedouin kingdoms.
At the exciting Arabian Nights Dinner Attraction, guests enter the magical world of Scheherazade, a beautiful Princess in search of her Prince. A magical Genie takes Scheherazade and her guests on a thrilling and romantic adventure filled with music, lights and daring acts where anything can happen, from a square dance on horseback to Gypsies leaping, flipping and dancing on moving horses’ backs!
The large-scale theatrical production at Arabian Nights features riders and acrobats performing with more than 60 horses. The nightly performances, featuring delicious menu options, give guests the most incredible experience among Central Florida’s dinner shows.
The entire Arabian Nights performance and dinner show is hosted inside the Palace of Horses, the world’s largest indoor equestrian arena for a permanent show, where 11 different breeds of horses are trained and cared for by the dedicated staff of this amazing dinner theater production.

Arabian Nights presents The American Princess, our most popular show ever! This tribute to America features four dozen of the world’s most famous horses, and more than twenty great riders performing especially for you, the special guest of Princess Scheherazade.
The spectacular horses are undoubtedly the stars of the show, as they enchant guests with their beauty and talent in a variety of disciplines.
