The Dixie Stampede far exceeded my expectations. The show was exciting and funny. My kids loved the character of Skeeter. I recommend this show for everyone. I thought it was worth the extra $5 for preferred seating, but none of the seats were bad. The Dixie Belle Saloon preshow was different than I expected. It's actually in a separate room, decorated as a saloon. The band is good, and funny! But a lot of the tables have views obstructed by huge pillars so we couldn't see the stage. My kids were a little bored with this part. I was impressed with the souvenir prices. The icees in boot cups were $4 each and I think refills were $2. The Dixie Stampede flags were only $3. The pictures were on par with other attractions and they were the only negative part of the evening. The sales people come to tables during the show to sell you the prints. I didn't want to take my eyes off the horses and it was too dark to see the prints, anyway. Everyone in my family has a different opinion about the food.I loved the chicken and the apple turnover for dessert. My husband ate most of his food but wasn't too impressed. My kids didn't eat much because they were so caught up in the show. The servers provide to-go bags at the end of the show, but it's not really easy traveling food, so we only kept the one leftover dessert. Bring cash to tip your server. They do an impressive job! Watching them work is like watching a perfectly choreographed dance. Sounds cheesy, I know, but wait until you see it. Our server was Michelle and she was wonderful. After the show the audience is invited to meet the performers and the horses. My kids absolutely loved it. This was such a fun night! I highly recommend it to everyone.
All of us enjoyed the show (two adults and an 18 y/o). The food was great. The service was great. The show was entertaining, although my favorite part was the comedian of the show. We also really enjoyed the pre-show. Although I was surprised at the amount of people who bought drinks and snacks at the pre-show. You're getting ready for a big meal! Oh, and you don't get utensils at dinner. It's all good though.
We absolutely loved the entire experience! From the pre-show to the very end! The meal was awesome and the service amazing. The food arrived piping hot - which we ate with our fingers! The show part of the evening was just an absolute delight! The patriotism and good family entertainment was beyond compare. Highly recommended!
This was a fun night activity. The pre-show was a little on the tight side. The chairs/tables were very close to each other but the music was really good for all music lovers. The show was very interactive and the food was pretty good. No one rushes you and there is more food than you can eat. This is family fun for the entire family. Just sit back, relax and enjoy the show.
