If you are trying to see princesses this is a great place to do that! Akershus will be especially hard to get reservations for during early 2015 when Cinderella's Royal Table is closed for a few weeks! We had to wait a good bit before getting inside but we loved our picture with Belle! We also saw Aurora, Snow White,... More

We had dined her before when our daughter was much younger, but were happy to know that she still loved it at the age of 15! Each princess stopped at our table for a photo with her an an autograph and make her feel special. We all loved the food! There is an all you care to eat appetizer buffet... More

I talked my husband into this dining experience as my excuse was "you can't go to Disney and not eat with the Princess's". I knew from the outset what was on the menu and that my family and I wouldn't eat to much but it was the princess's we were going for. We had an early morning before the park... More

Did the princess breakfast on 9/10/14, and we loved it! My favorite thing was the potato/hashbrown casserole dish--we asked for seconds on that! The princesses were so nice and it was such a great experience for my daughter to get to meet several of them. If you have the dining plan this is a great value meal to do.

This is so amazing you eat while the Princesses come to your table. They come one by one. No need to wait in those long lines for hours.

First, the layout of this restaurant doesn't work as well for the character interaction as does the Cinderella castle. The food was good, not great. Service was acceptable, not good. The young lady that waited on us tried to pretend she wanted to be there; however, her eye roll when I forgot to mention something made it very clear how... More

I had a great experience at Akershus. I didn't realize that there was a buffet as well as the entree I ordered. I ordered the lamb and it was pretty good, I filled up a lot of their buffet with salmon, cheese, pastas, very delicious. My waitress was extremely nice and the princesses were just an other touch of magic.... More

Expensive and crowded with screaming kids waiting to see the princesses, but the food made it worth it. I would not pay those kind of prices outside Disney, but on vacation, worth the splurge. Salad bar makes it worth going.

We did this one for breakfast. It was a little different than the others, as it was 1/2 buffet, 1/2 family style (big community plate to be shared with the table) It was a Princess Breakfast so we met Belle, Ariel, Cinderella, and Aroura. The meal also included an 8x10 and 4 4x6's taken by Disney's photographer and dropped off... More
