You have to go into it knowing that it's all staged and silly, but you have to be a real wet blanket not to get into the fun of cheering for the knights with all the jousting and sword-fighting. Plus, it's just really cool to see the beautiful horses and to see the falcon soaring over your head. Just know that you will be called My Lord or My Lady and that you'll be eating with your hands and it's really about the show, not the food (not that the food is bad, the chicken has a nice spice, the bread and potatoes are good and the pastries are tasty - it's not amazing, but it's still a perfectly fine meal). My only complaint is that they have only Pepsi/Diet Pepsi or water - I would like an iced tea option, but that's a tiny little thing. Caution to parents - they gift shop is huge and even not-so-little kids and adults will see plenty of cool things to buy, so plan ahead on how you will handle the 'can I get that?' pleas!
