Guests entering The Tournament of Kings Arena will be magically transported into a medieval winter wonderland, designed to bring holiday joy to all who come!

Guests will be served a three-course holiday feast which, true to the time of Merlin, will be eaten sans utensils. The festive meal includes creamy Dragon’s Blood (tomato) Soup, juicy Cornish Game Hen, delicious stuffing cake, flavorful baked jeweled yams, fresh broccoli trees, and a mouthwatering holiday apple strudel.
