We spent several days at the Lodge, and there were different offerings in the Hudson Theater on the property each night. The night we went it was not a meal; the theater was showing a movie narrated by a man who has spent his entire life photographing and studying the Northern Lights (Aurora Borealis) in Alaska. It was a very... More

This is pure tourist stuff but it's o.k. The , Meal is family style. The is audience participation in thE pre show. All you can eat and it's good basic stuff...nothing exotic. It is located at the princess lodge. Reasonably priced. Two showings. College talent. Lots of energy. Original musical with a story line relating to Denali.

We were with a group of 6 people and loved the show. The food was good and we were all satisfied. Choices from the bar were limited but we had a great time and would do it again if we were in the area.

The entire staff entertaining and fun. Family style dining - excellent food. The staff serves the food and also are the actors in the skit. They were excellent. Included the audience in the skit which was great fun. Definitely recommend.

We saw the show as part of our Princess Tour. The food was good (salad, salmon, beef brisket, and some sides). The servers are also the talent. And very talented as well as attentive and full of energy. The show was well done and quite entertaining being sure to include some audience participation. We'd go again.

Having arrived at Denali Princess Wilderness Lodge, we checked into our room, very swish, then later that evening went to a dinner theatre show called the Music of Denali. The food was OK, the six young performers/waiters were enthusiastic in serving dinner efficiently, then it all segued into a mini musical inspired by the first people to climb Denali, the... More

Okay meal and boring show. Not a great value, but nice people. The meal is served family style and large platters are passed around. $70 per person seemed expensive for the food and "entertainment"..

Listen up and then decide. I wish I had read the reviews first. I would never have gone. First let me say it's not the fault of the performers. They sing well and do their best with what they have to work with. This is the biggest rip off I've experienced in I don't know when. It truly is a... More
