Medieval Times Dinner and Tournament with Kids + Ticket Giveaway!

Sponsored.

We have visited the Medieval Times Dinner & Tournament Show in Buena Park several times now and and every time, we have a blast! The show is fun, family-friendly, and it includes dinner. As we walk through the Court of Flags, they crown us, and we instantly feel like we are in for a great adventure! One of the first things we did upon entry is meet Princess Catalina for a photo opportunity. This varies between the King, a Knight, or Princess. The printed keepsakes are optional to buy and distributed later in the show.

Don’t ask me how they do it, but they were able to move large crowds to their seats easily by just calling out the color of their crowns. Special accolade ceremonies like for birthdays are done before the show in the lobby. Upon taking our seats, we were greeted by our Host/Server who explains which Knight we are cheering for, and “BOO’ing the competition were encouraged. We were really pumped-up as a team. Dinner service started almost immediately.

Let the games begin!

You know it’s all about winning the Princess’s heart and earning the King’s honor. Go back in time when Knights compete in tournament games and battle it out to impress the Fairest Lady of them all. I felt like I was a part of the show cheering, booing, and I was really proud of my Knight. We all watched on the edge of our seats. We never know who is going to win, but it is highly entertaining as they joust, sword fight, and more! I try to catch a flower every.single.time. There is no shame, and it’s fun. The more you are into the show, the better.

The Dinner Menu

All the items are meant to be eaten with your hands just like the “Medieval” days. Dinner includes garlic toast and tomato bisque soup as a first course. Shortly after, they serve the main entree – roasted chicken, sweet buttered corn, herb-basted potatoes as the main entree. For dessert, the pastry of the Castle (warm apple turn-over). Beverages include coffee and two rounds of select beverages. You can also order bar drinks from cocktail servers without getting up. Vegetarian options include hummus, warm pita bread, carrot and celery sticks, three-bean stew with fire roasted tomato and brown rice, fresh fruit or Italian ice, coffee and two rounds of select beverages. Towelettes and To-Go Boxes are available if you would like to take anything home. Gratuity is appreciated after service.

Tips for Families with Small Children:

  • If your child is sensitive to noise, bring noise canceling headphones.
  • If your child always need extra time to adjust to new environments, come early to find parking and ease your way inside.
  • Request to sit on the end of the aisles if you need to take your child outside. There is a gated courtyard between the two buildings if you need an open space to let them run around before or during the show.
  • The food is meant to be eaten with your hands. If your child doesn’t like to get their hands dirty, they will give you wet wipes or bring your own plastic utensils.
  • The children got the same amount of food as the adults and we always get a To-Go Box.
  • The show can run late past their bedtimes, go to the early show and time it around lunch, nap times, or an early dinner.
  • Reader’s Tip: Bring Benadryl. If you go early, you can visit the horses before the show. A reader said that she didn’t know she was allergic and had to leave the show early. Be prepared just in case.
