Back when I was a freshman in college and came home for the first time after leaving, my parents planed a small celebration. They took my brother and me to a Medieval Times restaurant. We had great memories in that place. Many, many years later I wanted my boys to experience what I did when I was younger.

And where is the best place to do this? But in Theme Restaurant Capital of the World – Orlando.

Medieval Times Orlando – An 11th Century Adventure

Here’s a good idea of what you’ll do while visiting this super-cool dinner theater:

As I mentioned before, the restaurant was made to reenact an 11th century feast and tournament.

Visitors receive a four course banquet as they cheer for their favorite of the six Knights that compete in the jousts.

The performance includes jousting, swordsmanship, hand-to-hand combat, displays of extraordinary horsemanship and falconry. It all lasts two hours.

A Quick Journey of the Medieval Times Show

1. A King and a princess are introduced.
2. Then there is a demonstration of the Stallions. They are all shown to the King and Princess – These horses are incredible and the training that goes behind it is an art in itself.
3. Falconry – one of the oldest sports of our history.
4. The knights are introduced.
5. Another horse show that blew everyone’s mind. The horses perform gorgeous dance moves.
6. Finally! The jousts begin.
7. And Sword fighting for the ultimate win.

Everyone was going crazy. It was a very emotional time for us all.

In the middle of all that excitement our meal was brought out to us by a fair maiden. The fun continues when you discover that there is no silverware, just your hands, like in the 11th century style. The meal consisted on unlimited ice tea or soft drinks, tomato soup and garlic bread, chicken, ribs, baked potato and apple pie. It was enough food for a fat king.

I would also not recommend spending on the packages. I didn’t see anything special that would be worth the money.
