Great, but the wait is ridiculous

We went here for lunch on our visit to Epcot. The starter plate was lovely, the buffet was fresh and tasty and the princesses were awesome, The only gripe I have about this place is the time you have to wait until you are taken through.

We had breakfast with the princesses! A beautiful setting, food was decent with the Norwegian food nice to try. A good character breakfast that I would recommend.

Food is very average. Overpriced for the food. You pay for the princesses. The breakfast is a standard Disney fare. The cheesy hash browns are great. Fruit is actually sub-par compared to other Disney breakfasts.

We enjoyed a great breakfast and experience with the princess celebration with our granddaughter. The food was fantastic and lots of excellent choices on the buffet and the server brings a hot plate with bacon, sausage links, scrambled eggs and potatoes to the table. The princess procession allows each to visit every table and then a couple of procession parades... More

I visited here last year with my sister, her husband and my niece. We were seated quickly when we arrived, probably waited around 5 minutes and my niece had a nice picture upon entry, I think it was with Cinderella. Table was in a good spot, not too busy with other guests moving around, and the hostess was friendly and... More

This was by far the worst Meal we had planned and MOST EXPENSIVE. It is your ONE STOP Princess Shop, but truly all in all....was almost DOUBLE the PRICE of our other Character Dinners...and we went at LUNCH prices. Do yourself a favor and SKIP this place. Hollywood and Vine has amazing food and Character experiences....The Liberty Tree Tavern...as well... More

Took my daughter for the breakfast. I know every moment can't be magical, but this whole experience was one of our worst. The food and service were just not good and at a very premium price, even for Disney. It is one-stop shopping for the princesses, but our encounters in the Magic Kingdom (Belle, Princess Fairytale Hall, TInkerbelle in Town... More

This is a great way for the princess-lovers in your life to get some wonderful pictures with those ball-gown-wearing beauties. It's a little pricey, but it is a character meal at Disney World. Plus, with a reservation, it's a lot less waiting for pictures with a princess than some other options within Disney World. The food is good, with a... More

We go to Orlando about two times every year for vacation, it is always wiser to vacation to Disney or Universal in fall months due to weather and how many people are there. We couldn't get my daughter into Cinderella's Royal Table this time, however, from personal experience Akershus food, atmosphere, and employees were far superior and it was more... More
