Luckily we were on a meal plan because the cost would be outrageous for some donuts and fruit! We went for breakfast and the food they bring to the table is good but u can get better at the hotel quick service! My daughter enjoyed seeing the princesses and they give a complimentary picture which is the reason I gave... More

If you are looking to eat with the princesses do yourself a favor and go to Cinderella's Castle at the Magic Kingdom instead. The food and atmosphere there is much better and the princesses spend a little more time with the children. We did not care for the food here at all and the service was not that great. We... More

We had dinner reservations. We arrived about 5-10 minutes late and only had a few minutes to wait when we were called in. You get your photo taken with Belle right away, then wait to be seated. We ended up with a table right beside the cold buffet. Because of our location, we didn't get to enjoy how nice the... More

We made our lunch reservation several months in advance which is a necessity for any character dining in Disney. I wasn't expecting much quality wise but was very surprised at how good everything was. Appetizer buffet was full of cheeses and meats, all very tasty. The main course was a choice of 4-5 items, I had the roast beef sandwich... More

I was excited about this particular booking and walked away disappointed. When you are not on the dining plan, this place is a swift kick in the pants. The checkin is confusing and then you are rushed through a picture with Belle. Not much for interaction but the kids didn't seem to notice. At dinner there is an appetizer buffet... More

The princess Interaction was very nice. The princess parade was also very nice and all the kids seemed to enjoy it. We had an 8:15 reservation - the wait staff was hard to flag down when we needed something, or dinner took awhile to come out. Our food came out and the staff was immediately checking on us, asking if... More

The feature here is the appearance of several Disney princesses with opportunities for photos and autographs. So the little girls will love it. The food is pretty average, although the wine list had a few nice selections. If you are not into princesses, don't bother to go. Go to the French restaurant in Epcot instead.

We have been here before, and we definitely preferred the lunch to the breakfast. We received a big plate of scrambled eggs and bacon/sausage, and then were able to go up to the buffet. But, for what we paid, it doesn't seem like any amount of breakfast foods could make this worth it. It is a nice option to visit... More

I scheduled a last-minute dinner reservation (my first for any Disney restaurant) at Akershus for this Thanksgiving. Looking through the past reviews at the time, I was expecting the restaurant to be more on the childish side, i.e. lots of fun for kids but not so much for adults. But I was wrong; the food and atmosphere were both excellent,... More
