Medieval Times...Worth it?

Just wondering what your input is on Medieval Times. Do you NEED reservations? What is the food they serve? Is it worth it? How long is the show.

I've looked on their website and can't find the answers to these questions. Please help.

Also, how far is it from Disneyland?

All help appreciated!

Depends - how old are you and do you have kids. The kids loved it - however, there is a lot of dust, so if anyone has bad allergies - it takes away from the enjoyment. I haven't been for a while, but you used to need a reservation. They used to serve cornish hens, corn on the cob and some other finger food. It is in Buena Park (near Knotts berry Farm) about a 10-15 minute drive.

I just checked out their website and the show looks great, I would like to know if I should reserve tickets thru their site or is there another tour company that might also include transportation to the theatre that we should book thru, also if the show is dusty do I really want to pay for the vip seats at the front, won't it be dustier there?

We went to the show in April and had a wonderful time.

It was just my husband and I. The crowd -age from about 6 to 80 were having a wonderful time.

They have a no-host bar so any drink is basically available.

Dinner is first soup; beverages (soft beverage or beer); 1/2 a chicken (plenty); potatoe; bread; and vegetable. Apple strudel is served for desert. The food is good (i.e. meaning the chicken is moist, etc.) and the service is fast. They have a server for your assigned section and do a good job of serving.

The meal is served during the show. The show is about 2 1/2 hours long. On the site they say get their early (they do have some other attractions like a museum, place to have drinks outside, store, etc. They take your photo on the way in.)

We got there about 45 minutes prior to our show time and since we did not do the museum, we could have arrived 30 minutes before and been perfectly happy.

You get to root for your favorite Knight (i.e. you are given an assigned section to sit with a knight assigned to that section.)

Its about a 15 minute drive from Disneyland - basically drive from Disneyland on I-5 North to Beach Blvd.

If interested in such things, I Highly recommend it.

Enjoy!

(Note: Its a great way to have a fun meal and be off your feet for dinner after running around at Disneyland during the day - especially if you have a multi-day pass.)

Enjoy your trip!

Thanks for the info. I'll have 3.5 year old with me so I'm not sure about being out that late since the only show that night is at 8pm. But thanks so much.

They do have an afternoon show on the week-ends so you might look into that. If he likes knights, etc. your 3 year old will like it.

We really liked medieval times. A warning, though...don't pay extra for the tickets up close. The horses kick up a lot of dust (and who knows what else) and it gets all over your food and drink.

We'll be at Disney on Saturday and Sunday so the day we were looking at was Friday.

Oh well, maybe we'll hit it next time.
