Great pre-show - get there early for that. The place was packed, plan extra time to park and get in. Food was fabulous and the entertainment was incredible - Vegas quality at 1/2 the price. Our 5 year grandson wanted to go back the next night.
Dixie Stampede is one of the top shows in Branson. From start to finish there is something of interest for everyone. Once you purchase your tickets you will get to choose the side of the auditorium you sit on - the North or the South ( remember the Civil War ?) You go into an area where you have a choice of having your picture taken. Nothing bad happens to you if you don't. in the next area you go there is a pre show. We have seen a variety of entertainers - some amazing jugglers. From there you go into the main area where the Dixie Stampede beginsThere is an arena show - a rodeo.. Part of the entertainers are for the South and the other group is for the North. At the end of each contest a flag is placed on the side who won on that event . While all of this is going on you are eating a variety of food - no silverware is used. You can take what you haven't eaten with you when the show is over. The culminating event is the War between the North and the South The wait staff starts the war by handing a flag to the person nearest them. When the flag comes to you, you must stand up, salute and pass the flag to the person next to you. Whichever side's flag reaches the end of their section is declared the winner. It is definitely a family show. The costumes are awesome. There is some audience participation - adults and children. The horses are beautiful. They are well cared for. You have an opportunity to see them before and after the show. Of course there is a store where you can purchase a variety of merchandise. There is adequate parking space for everyone including handicap parking. I'm not positive, but I think there might be a shuttle from the handicap parking to the auditorium. Lots of stalls in the restrooms.
Fun time for all ages. Starts with the pre-show (try the orange drink you can buy at the counter) then everyone goes to the arena for the dinner and show. The entertainment is continuous while the busy servers bring out the huge meal one item at a time. We took home leftovers. The food is delicious and eaten without utensils. At times there is audience participation to cheer on your team so that keeps everyone engaged in what's happening in the arena. Such a fun couple of hours. Tipping your server is extra and they deserve it for the quickness in getting everyone's meals to them and cleaning up afterwards. Leaving through the gift shop let us pick up soup to make again at home. Also enjoyed walking past all the horses in their stalls as we entered and left.
