Amway Center Reviews
We have been here several times now, both to watch the Orlando Magic and the Orlando Solar Bears (lets go Bears!), and weve had a fantastic experience each and every time. It is about 30-35 minutes.... more »
Good location, the arena is big, seats are confortable, impeccable service! Food is overpriced. Over all is a nice place. more »
The lighting they did for the concert was amazing. There were times that I was more impressed with the lights than I was the music. It was fairly easy to navigate around the stadium. Prices for food and drinks were high, like you might expect. I think it was $10 for a Wicked hard seltzer water for example. What made me give it a 4 star instead of 5 is the seating. The seats are uncomfortable and run on the smaller side. The person who sat next to me was pretty large and they were practically sitting on my lap the entire time. If the seats had just been a tiny bit wider, it wouldn't have been an issue. So if you get claustrophobic, feel self-conscious about how much room you take up in a seat, or just don't want the risk of your neighbor sitting on your lap -- maybe consider a different venue if possible. That being said, it really was a nice light show. Pictures can't express.
Definitely one of the better multi-use venues I’ve been in. They have multiple entrances. Featuring bag checks, and metal detectors. There’s the usual issue with bathrooms but they handle it rather well and transition some of the men’s restrooms to women’s to accommodate different events.
