First, dinner was delicious! I was fully expecting the food to be average or horrible. The chicken was hot temperature, soup excellent, and pastry was fresh. Be warned: you will not receive silverware unless you order the vegetarian option! That made it even more fun though and after the "feast" you get a disposable individually wrapped hot warm towelette. We were in a party of eight. One person in our group had a vegetarian plate that was very nice! It included beans and rice, hummus/chips, vegetable shish kabob. Everything was fresh, hot and seasoned perfectly. Don't expect personal service here. The waitstaff goes down a line so if you run out of drink no one will come offer a refill. There is a separate server who comes buy to offer only alcoholic drinks from the bar. When you enter the venue you can either browse the gift $hop or order a $25 cocktail. You can keep the keepsake glass but who can drink all of that before the show? Also during the show staff comes buy with all types of flags, photos of you and your party, glow sticks, glow flowers and more. That part got to be annoying. We could have done without all the sales.
There was a wedding going on in the side room and they were seated together in one section. It was small enough and didn't deter or interfere with anyone else's enjoyment of the show.
The show itself was very good. The horses are beautiful, as was the falconer with bird act. I thought the acting would be cheesy but it wasn't. The costumes were also great and authentic looking. The fantasy of it was a lot of fun. Plus, you get to cheer and boo the performing knights and each section is seated in a team to cheer for your competing knight. This is a show you want to see once every couple of years. As much as we enjoyed it I would not go back right away. Great for tourist families.
