When I was little my father took my sister and I to Florida to see Disney World. On our way home we drove by Medieval Times, a giant white castle with horses, battles and knights inside – I was instantly mesmerized! I pleaded with my dad to take me, but he just drove by… 🙁
Ever since then it was in the back of my mind. When I heard a Medieval Times Dinner and Tournament opened at the exhibition grounds, it was the only place I wanted to go for my 13th birthday. I had a wonderful time with my family, friends and became Lady Caroline Becker during my knighting ceremony. The memory stuck with me but it wasn’t until recently that I thought about revisiting this Medieval adventure.
So here we are 20 years later back with my family seated in the black and white Knight’s section. I watch with anticipation hoping to see my knight win the battle of the champions in search of glory and honor. The show included a beautiful Andalusian stallion dance and a complicated dressage performance which reminded me of horse ballet.
During the evening a four course meal is served including a choice of non-alcoholic beverages, though a full bar is available. We enjoyed a nice VQA bottle which complement the courses.
Freshly baked garlic toast arrived, followed by textured herb-infused tomato bisque. Next a roasted half chicken is plated alongside a half a baked potato and an incredibly sweet and savory pump buttered corn. Can you tell it was my favorite? A warm apple strudel sweetly ends the evening with coffee or tea if one desires.
Would you like to experience an evening of graceful horses, flashy jousts, and polished duels? How about six bearded knights riding through the wind, tossing carnations to the ladies in the crowd?
