Guests will be served a three-course holiday feast, which, true to the time of Merlin, will be eaten without utensils. The fit-for-kings meal includes Dragon’s Blood Soup, Cornish Game Hen, Traditional Seasoned Potatoes, Fresh Broccoli, a Muffin made of Cornbread Stuffing and a Snowflake Cookie.
In addition to holiday-inspired music, “Tournament of Kings: ‘Twas the Knight” will feature magnificently designed holiday costumes, majestic banners, flags, and new castle lights, which will be illuminated as Merlin conjures snowfall on the kingdoms. New poems and songs will be performed by Merlin, the Jester and the entire cast of knights and maidens. New vignettes created for the holiday show include a specially choreographed ribbon dance along with a skilled rider upon an Andalusian stallion inspired by the spirit of the season.
