Medieval Times, Orlando Review



I review lots of THINGS here, but my favorite thing to review is events and places, and I have a great one for you! My oldest son just got done with his summer camp program a few weeks ago, and the theme was the Medieval times and he really enjoyed learning about it. That prompted me to get in touch with Medieval Times, Orlando and see if they would be interested in a review. I was seriously excited when they agreed, and my Mom let me know taking her would be an excellent birthday gift for her. 

My Mom, my son and I all went this past Saturday, July 11th on her birthday! Before we went to the dinner and tournament, we decided to look around the Medieval village. We were told that Orlando is actually the only Medieval Times that offers the village, and I am very glad they did. I was definitely something to take it. We saw how clothing was made, we saw torture devices and we also saw what a typical home would have been set up like in those days. It was really a neat, and educational experience for all of us. 

After that we went ahead and headed in to the dinner and tournament. You are sat by sections so each section has their own knight to cheer for. We had the black and white knight, who, while I may be partial, I have to say, was the best! He smiled more, he rode his horse well, and I was glad to be cheering for him. While he did not end up winning the tournament, he was in second in place. The show was really quite nice, with amazing horses and the "fights" kept our interest. My son, who is almost 8, loved it! He really got into it and cheered with the crowds and was pretty upset when he did not win.


Now lets talk about food. I should tell you my mom has proven to be an extremely picky food critic, and she does not love chicken either, so I was not holding my breath that she would enjoy the food. You can imagine my shock when she said that she actually liked the dinner! She even said that she did not need to salt anything, and she is the type that over salts everything! The dinner was a four course meal, starting with a tomato soup which was delicious. Then we were brought warm garlic bread, 1/2 a super moist and wonderfully seasoned chicken, and corn on the cob. For dessert, we were given a delicious apple turnover. We also had the choice of water, sprite or coke. 

Overall, we loved the entire experience at Medieval Times, Orlando and definitely plan on going back when my younger son is a little older! It was great food, great entertainment and a wonderful night!
