There was some live music by the restaurant, but just a piece or two. There were sort of pool events about 5 pm, like dancing, we usually were getting ready for dinner by then. There were kid friendly shows at 8 pm in the theater and adult shows at 9. We only went to one, it was fairly good. Usually with our group of little kids, we were in our rooms early, beat from day activities.
