Dixie Stampede is a dinner and show. You arrive approx. 1 to 1 1/2 hours prior to the show. First, your picture is taken, then you enter a "holding area" for the pre-show. We saw a rodeo-type rope swinging act. Then, you enter the arena for the meal and the main show.
Each person receives a cornish game hen, a slice of roast pork, corn on the cob, potato, pop or iced tea, coffee, and dessert. The show starts just after you receive your drink and continues until after dessert. The food was well prepared and tasty. (Not gourmet though.) This meal brings out the kid in you - you get to eat with your fingers!! They do give you a warm paper towel to wash off with after dinner.
