*Disclaimer: This is a sponsored post from Medieval Times Orlando and we did receive complimentary tickets.
During our summer travels, we ventured from Atlanta, Georgia down to Celebration, Florida, so as you could imagine, our stomachs were growling with hunger after the 6 hour road trip. That left the question, what’s for dinner?
Thankfully, we booked an evening at Medieval Times Orlando! Since others rave about their amazing experience, I had to give it a try. If you’ve never heard of Medieval Times before, it is a dinner show and tournament. Not only do you receive a 4 course meal, but you get to watch 6 competing knights during a 2 hour medieval jousting tournament with real weapons, beautiful horses, and a live flight of the royal falcon.
As you walk up to the castle, there is a small village that you can explore while waiting for the show to begin. It’s fun to check it out, make believe, and take photos. Once the doors are opened, you will be seated in the section of your knight and given a towel and little flag to wave. Be prepared to be engaged! You are encouraged to cheer for your knight, which we had no problem doing!
For the 4 course dinner, you feast on garlic bread, tomato bisque soup, roasted chicken, sweet buttered corn, herb-basted potatoes, a pastry. They do have vegetarian dishes, if desired. The food was impressive and I was even more impressed that my son ate most of it! However, there is one catch…you have to use your hands to eat!
The show had us on edge as we cheered for our knight. Kids don’t even realizing that they are eating their food since the show is so intriguing. After the jousting and medieval games, the knights fought “the bad guy”. With cheers from the audience, our knight ended up as the victor.
Now, I am a huge fan of Renaissance Festivals, however I feel as if Medieval Times Orlando brought so much more. From being kid-friendly to the food and entertainment, I highly suggest adding this onto your vacation if you are in the area for Disneyworld or other Orlando, Florida attractions.
