Welcome to a time that once was. Medieval Times Dinner & Tournament in Kissimmee Florida.
If your looking for a action filled night show that entertains the whole family with Knights, Spanish Horse Stallions, a Princess, a King and his Courtship then Medieval Times Dinner & Tournament in Orlando is sure to win you over.
Medieval Times welcomes you inside their 11th century style castle filled with armor guards and Medieval nostalgia. Upon entering the castle, you will notice a small moat underneath the entrance drawbridge.
Once entered, you will see lined armored men on either side of the ticket booths. I received my tickets and was greeted by a friendly man of courtship. That is when my family and I retrieved our team crowns. Go team Black and White! We even got a chance to take a picture with the king and meet him personally. How cool was that?
We arrived about an hour before show time so we could visit the Medieval Village which is included in your admission. Each small cottage represented authentic nostalgia during the Medieval Times period.
I found it very interesting in learning how Medieval folks lived, cooked, how they made pottery and weaved baskets. One of the villages that really caught my eye was the torcher chamber. Please beware that some of the artifacts might not be suitable for children to view.
Once we wrapped up our walking tour through the Medieval Village, it was time to go back into the main building and visit the Wine Cellar. My husband and I celebrated with one of their recommend cocktail drinks served in a take home souvenir glass. While waiting for the show to start, we strolled around checking out the decor and items for sale in the gift shop.
That is when Lord Chancellor made the announcement that the tournament will be begin. Being that it was a full house and tons of people waiting to enter the dinner and tournament arena, I found it favorable that he announced each section by the number and teams of color. This allowed guests to comfortably walk into the arena and not feel rushed. We had section 7 Black and White and let me just say that every seat in the arena was a great seat. Fully viewable of everything in front of you. I really loved that no seat was obstructed. Believe it or not, my family and I were centered in the ring which was 3 rows to the floor. Fantastic views even for my 6 year old daughter.
When the show began, our friendly server introduced himself then asked for our beverage choices. Watching these gorgeous Spanish Stallions prance in with their team colors and the charming knight who rode them, was a joy to watch. There are 6 knights in total which are defined by colors of The Blue Knight, The Red & Yellow Knight, The Yellow Night, The Red Knight, The Green Knight and of course our Black & White Knight. As the show continued, King Don Carlos and his daughter Princess Catalina were summons to witness the jousting tournament led by these wonderful and brave knightsmen.
This action packed new show will have you routing for you team of color as you sit, clap and even perhaps yell “boo” to the opposite teams. Ask my daughter, who I believe did the most yelling in my group. Her face expressions and body motions showed me that she was really into the show in which for me, was a nice surprise to see the excitement in her eyes.
At this time, there was an announcement that dinner was served. For this 4 course meal we received Oven Roasted Chicken, Garlic Bread, Sweet Buttered Corn, Tomato Bisque Soup, Herb Roasted Potato and for dessert Pastry of the Castle. You will also be happy to know if your a vegetarian they will substitute (prior request) with Hummus, warm Pita Bread, Carrot & Celery Sticks, 3 Bean Stew with Fire Roasted Tomato and Brown Rice. For dessert, you will receive Fresh Seasonal Fruit or Italian Ice (if available). Non- Alcohol Beverages and Coffee will be also served with your meal.
If your interested in their full bar service, it’s available during pre-show, during and after the show has ended. I recommend one of their chilly specialty drinks like the Maiden’s Kiss.
During the show, you will also see members of the court battle and defend their honor by using shields and swords. Chivalry is alive and well during this performance. From hearing and viewing the swords “clashing” together to awards received from completing the King’s challenges, these selective knights will win their way to a fun to watch competition. Once the selected knights won their challenges, they received flowers from the princess. Each knight then tossed the flower into the crowd which was magically to see them and the crowd interact.
During the tournament, you will also see the Royal Falconer make an appearance. Him and his bird of prey, the Royal Falcon will surprise guests with a live flight over the heads of guests in the arena. I was in pure amazement seeing how well trained the Royal Falcon was and how interesting it was to watch.
During the final stages of the show, the winner of the tournament which on this night was The Blue Knight. As he versed, battled and defeated The Herald of the North, Lord Ulrick to protect his kingdom.
Overall, my family and I really loved the Medieval Times Dinner and Tournament Show. Using our hands to eat our dinner was exceptional fun specially for my children. Our server was kind and welcoming. This was our first time visiting the Orlando Medieval Times Dinner Show and indeed was a non stop, action fun evening for all of us. We truly enjoyed ourselves. Walking through the Medieval Villages and seeing Medieval artifacts like the 800 year old Loom, living quarters that once were, how people of that time used pottery and stables was a refreshing change from visiting some of Orlando’s Theme Parks.
We were treated as royalty, as the staff called us by sir, madam or my lady. Such a fun evening for my family and one that we will remember for years to come.
