Medieval Times is for the whole family! As summer approaches we can’t wait to share as many fun ways to enjoy Southern California as possible. Today we are sharing about our first trip to Medieval Times in Buena Park. Many people ask us about fun things to do in Orange County other than theme parks, Medieval Times is a must for families. Today we have a giveaway sponsored by Medieval Times, so make sure to enter at the bottom! Also, don’t miss the Medieval Times Groupon that is currently available!
For those who have never heard of Medieval times, it is an awesome dinner show that brings guests back in time. A huge feast is served and guests are treated like royalty! Hundreds of guests cheer for their knight, enjoy jousting, beautiful dressage performances, and more.
It is appropriate to dress casual at Medieval Times, which is excellent for families or school groups. Should you want to dress up, that is fun too. Our oldest daughter was not going to pass up the chance to dress like a princess! The characters noticed for sure. Several times during the show the knights came by and threw flowers to ladies in the audience. Her princess dress certainly drew the attention of our knight and she felt very special.
The highlight of our evening was when Little Miss C was chosen as the knight’s queen. She was somewhat disappointed that she didn’t get to keep the entire lance, but a beautiful sash was pretty thrilling too.
Queen of the Tournament!
Meals at Medieval Times are huge and of course are themed. There is no silverware at Medieval Times because there was no silverware in Medieval Times. They have soda and fruity cocktails though, so there is some break down in the theme department.
The pre-set meal includes soup, chicken, potatoes, corn, and cake for dessert. My oldest and I enjoyed the vegetarian meal option which included veggies, pita, and hummus, as well as a hearty vegetarian chili. “Eat, drink, and be merry!” my son said.
Husband’s status : I made my crown too small for laughs. Also, this photo bomb was too easy.
This is what I have to work with people.
Medieval Times really is the perfect trip for any family, but it is also great for school groups! We love to participate in as many fun experiences that we can also learn is as possible. As a home schooling family that loves history, we felt this really brought Medieval times to life! The kids loved the royal court, the jousting, cheering on the knights, and the authentic eating with their hands part! The conversations we had during and after the show were awesome. We know they had an incredible time, but they also learned.
