REVIEW: (Medieval) Times They Are A-Changin'



It's been a while since we visited the castle... you know the one - the one standing alongside its  Medieval Village in Kissimmee? It's an icon... a well-known tribute to an era seemingly frozen in time within its mighty walls; and recently, it quietly became a symbolic monument to societal change. Quietly - until you play witness to the show inside!

The flagship Medieval Times Dinner & Tournament opened in 1983. The timeless, beloved tale of battles and romance in the quest for the princess and kingdom unfolded under the watchful eyes of the powerful king for 34 years. This year, that has all changed as Queen Doña Maria Isabella has officially taken the throne following the "death" of the king.

While it seems to be an incredibly relevant time for such a change in regime, the political and social climate whirling around #MeToo, and rejuvenated analyses of gender equality aren't responsible for some frenzied, obligatory rewrite of the Medieval Times performance. These changes have been in the works for a couple of years as a result of guest feedback and certainly just an acknowledgment of the need for something new.

Give Kids the World Village - Kissimmee

About a decade ago, I lived in Poinciana, Florida while working in Kissimmee. Every day on my commute, I'd pass this hidden nook that held the most colorful little land - tucked away among clusters of trees. When my young daughter was with me, it would catch her eye too, and she'd get that twinkling look in those beautiful eyes, because this little land looked so magical. We would both gawk at this land each time we passed it, and we were so curious. What went on in there? What was this place? This enchanted land was Give Kids the World Village, and it really is as magical as we expected. In fact, it may be the most magical place on earth.
