At each show, guests receive a feast that's fit for a king with oven roasted chicken and a hearty side of garlic bread. Tomato bisque soup and herb-roasted potato are also paired with the meal, along with a juicy spare rib and a pastry for additional sides. A kings vegetarian meal is also available upon request and includes three-bean stew, brown rice, fresh hummus and warm pita bread, with carrot and celery sticks, all accompanied by fresh fruit or Italian ice. For adults, a full-bar service is available pre-show, during the event, and after the show.

The Medieval Times castle is a notable attraction in Orlando, Florida with the traditional moat and drawbridge that can be seen in the front, as well as towering white walls that have a strong presence in the city. An eight-cottage medieval village is also featured in the castle and recently underwent an extensive renovation to enhance the theme of Medieval Times.

Between the horses to the armor, many aspects of the show are authentic, which includes the weaponry. Guests can expect to see the same weapons that were used from the 5th to the 15th century, which include the lance, which works to unhorse an enemy. The espada is a common sword used for a lightweight tool, while the the Alabarda is known to do more damage for stabbing during a battle. The bola is one of the most recognizable weapons with a spiked ball that is attached to a wooden handle, known as one of the most intimidating items during the show. The Mandoble was another item used in the 11th century for a two-handed sword that is used on foot to protect oneself and harm the enemy.

For guests coming to Medieval Times for a special occasion, a celebration package is available, which includes seating in the second or third row, a slice of cake, a “Behind the Scenes” DVD, a personalized announcement for the guest during the show, a framed group photo, and a commemorative program. The venue also makes for a great place to say “I do” where couples have access to wedding packages that include hosting their event or wedding reception on-site. Medieval Times can be transformed into a private in-castle reception area with a dance floor, dramatic lights, a sound system, and a full-service bar for several private events. Medieval Times has also hosted grad nights, several contests throughout the year, and free giveaways for its guests.
