The first time we came here, it wasn't very good, but now the banquet hall is AMAZING, and the food is absolutely wonderful. Our server was very friendly and were the princess. although the meals are very expensive, the tasteful food makes up for it. It is an absolutely amazing restaurant.

We really enjoyed Akershus and the interaction with Belle, Mulan, Mary Poppins, and more. The food, however, not so good. It was a buffet with pre-course cheeses, seafood, etc. and a menu choice of main course. The main course food was not good to any of us. I wanted to like it so much more than I did. We won't...

If you are on the Disney Dining Plan, take advantage of this restaurant. It is a bit expensive to pay out of pocket, but it is a great opportunity to meet the princesses of Disney without the long lines in the Florida sun. My only complaint was that the waitress made us feel uncomfortable for being at the restaurant without... More

My husband and I had been to Akershus many years prior and loved it, so we were hopeful that it would still be good. We were disappointed to say the least. Twice I was brought dirty silverware and my pork chop was just average. Everyone was served a trio of desserts to share that were delivered all together on one... More

We had an 8:15am reservation for the Princess Breakfast. Oh my! It was so special & wonderful! It's very pretty & located in Norway within Epcot. The breakfast is served on a giant platter, family style. We had scrambled eggs, sausage links & hashbrown casserole served to us at the table. When we ran low, they brought out more. It... More
