Medieval Times is one of Orlando's most popular dinner attractions. Travel back in time to experience the world of knights, horses, wizards, nobles and eating with your fingers. There's something for everyone at Medieval Times, so bring the whole family!

The Tournament:

Part fairy tale, part history lesson, the Medieval Times show takes you back to the 11th century, when knights would fight for the honor of beautiful ladies.

The main event is the tournament. Dozens of charging horses and knights, exciting jousting matches, lovely maidens and riveting hand-to-hand combat come together in a thrilling demonstration designed to entertain guests of all ages. Everyone at the tournament is encouraged to cheer for the knight representing his or her seating section in the castle, and doing so adds to the fun.

The lighting, music, choreography, period costumes and expert horsemanship are all very impressive and add to the overall experience.

The Feast:

While enjoying the tournament, guests are treated to a four-course dinner that includes tomato bisque soup, garlic bread, spare ribs, roasted chicken, herb-roasted potatoes, pastry and non-alcoholic drinks. Hummus, bean stew, fresh fruit and other vegetarian options are available by request. There's also a full bar service for adults to enjoy. As delicious as the food is, there's a bit of plot behind the show’s action, so you'll need to glance up from your plate on occasion.

For most guests, especially children, the best part of the feast is eating without utensils. There's something about eating with your fingers from metal plates that makes food taste so much better. But don't worry about missing anything; the banquet tables and auditorium-style seating mean you can watch the show while filling your stomach.

The Extras:

If you're into history, make sure to check out the Medieval Village before the tournament begins. As you wander around, you'll come across eight cottages featuring artisans of the medieval period, including coppersmiths, weavers and potters. The cottages and their contents are authentic to the time period. There's also a Hall of Arms where you can view medieval artifacts and a medieval torture museum. This section of the castle might be too intense for some children.

A large gift shop is located inside the Castle, and photos opportunities are available for all guests. Items sold in the shop range in price from very affordable to extremely expensive.

The Details:

The Orlando-Kissimmee Castle, which was the first Medieval Times to open in North America, offers group rates and reduced admission prices to Florida residents. Dress is casual and discounts are available online. The Castle doors open 75 minutes prior to show time, and seating is first come, first served. Arrive as early as possible if you want a good view of the tournament, and then take your time wandering through the castle.
