Boston Lobster Feast – $$$
8731 International Drive, Orlando, FL 32819
The Boston Lobster Feast started in the garage of Jeff Hazell, a native of Marblehead, Mass., where he grew up as a lobsterman with his father and grandfather. Out of his central Florida garage, he started to sell live lobsters to a few restaurants. By 1987, he moved into a small warehouse, selling thousands of lobsters to supermarkets throughout Florida. Realizing there was no single restaurant in Florida that gave Maine lobster its full attention, Jeff opened the first Boston Lobster Feast in 1991. The Boston Lobster Feast soon became an Orlando tradition- for holidays, birthdays, special occasions, or the place to take that special out of town guest. We're a regular stop for annual visitors, who come back asking for their favorite server, or their favorite table-and we're happy to accommodate them!

Cirque du Soleil – La Nouba
Tuesday, April 16, 2013 6:00 p.m. (Optional)
Experience Cirque du Soleil – La Nouba with your colleagues, family and friends at Downtown Disney.
Synopsis: The show name La Nouba originates from the French phrase “faire la nouba,” which means to party, to live it up. This creation is an unforgettable journey through our universe—at once threatening and exhilarating, frightening and familiar. La Nouba is the story of all stories, the site of all mysteries, where dreams and nightmares sleep side by side. La Nouba is memory, individual and universal. It beckons to us, challenges us to uncover passions we thought we'd lost long ago.
The show begins with a colourful array of circus characters as they parade rather traditionally into the theatre, toward the stage. Suddenly, the lights dim and a rooster crows to stir our imaginations, our sense of adventure and the child within. As the lights come up, our minds too are turned on by a set that appears to be strange yet familiar urban landscape.
La Nouba features two groups of characters. Throughout the show, the magic and fantasy of the colorful Cirques clash with the monochromatic world of the Urbains. But as in fables, it is not so much this contrast as the interplay between the two groups which sparks our curiosity and feeds our imagination. Here is where two distinct worlds collide and ultimately explode. The fluorescently fluid, and dynamic performances of the circus artists are forced to unfold within a uniformly grey environment that is both austere and static. The urbanites observe this invasion.
Transportation: You will be responsible for your own transportation. Local transportation is available outside The Peabody Hotel at a rate of approximately $22.00. The show is 90 minutes and will begin promptly at 6:00 p.m.
Cost: $84.19 – Ticket Only
Seating Location: Section 203
