Murder Mystery Dinner Shows
There are a variety of dinner shows on offer, all competing for your hard earned dollar. These offer different entertainment, and also different types (and quality) of food. Most shows offer unlimited beer, wine or soft drinks with your meal, and can be a good way of finishing off a hard day's theming at the parks.
We have visited the two 'murder mystery' dinner shows on offer - and have enjoyed both of them (sufficiently that we have returned to each of them). The two shows are 'Sleuths' and 'Murderwatch Mystery Theatre'Sleuths
Sleuths is situated just off International Drive, and provides the expected choice of meal, refillable drinks and a mystery show. The show has recently relocated to a new venue, which we haven't yet visited (that will have to wait until our next vacation) - but our experience of our previous visits has been very enjoyable. The actors proved very adaptable at responding to questions from the audience as they were cross examined, and provided a very entertaining show. Sleuths offer several different shows, so there is no need to restrict yourself to one visit. The entertainment on offer is very light hearted, and is a good addition to your vacation activities. Whilst suitable for the whole family, there is also a children's matinee show on offer.Murderwatch Mystery Theatre
This dinner show is situated in the Grosvenor Resort hotel just minutes walk from Downtown Disney (which is as good a place as anywhere to park). The show takes place on Saturday nights only, when two shows are often held. Again different shows are offered, so it is possible to visit more than once and see different shows (check out which show is being performed when you book). Whilst slightly less interactive with the audience than Sleuths, we reckon that this show has the edge on the food offered. Being situated in a restaurant in a large hotel means the catering facilities are on hand, and the offering is definitely of a higher standard. A 3 course buffet includes meats, pastas and salads, and the 'all-you can-eat' format means there is no likelihood of going home hungry. And, as with Sleuths, drinks are included with your meal.The Verdict
We enjoyed both shows, although if pushed for a choice the quality of the meal offered at the Murderwatch Mystery Theatre gives it the edge in our view. The location within walking distance of Downtown Disney allows us to spend the rest of the evening shopping. Whichever you choose, look out for discount vouchers to save a few dollars - and have a great evening!
