How was your experience?
I am familiar with a range of fine dining and have been fortunate to attend some very high quality theatrical productions - certainly this show would not fit either category. But neither did it cost the $200 per person I would have to put down for a top-notch dinner and London West End show! I think Pirates offers excellent value. My wife and I are still (thankfully) able to have a lot of fun when the opportunity presents; if you like to take yourself very seriously, perhaps this isn't best way to spend an evening. The kids had a really great time - 13, 11, 11, and our daughter's 10 yo friend. If you show up early (as suggested) there are plenty of very tasty appetizers and an engaging pre-show. If you don't want to get picked out to participate just let them know as you check in. The pre-show bar is expensive - if you need to drink alcohol bring lots of cash. Everyone seems to complain about the soft drink prices; $5 for a large pop in a sturdy souvenir cup. I'm not sure it's so outrageous for this resort area - at the parks you pay $3.50 and throw the cup away. Buying the tickets direct would make it an expensive exercise, but the prices we got at Goldstar made this show really good value for our family.
