Meet and greet with Princesses

This is a wonderful place to meet most of the Disney Princesses. It only uses one dining credit and is a great experience for young ones. We had pictures with Belle when we first walked in and then met Ariel, Snow White and Sleeping Beauty during dinner. My daughters loved it! The only downside... read more

Had lunch here at noon. Had to make reservations well in advance. I did 6 months to the date. If you have a little princess of your own, she will not want to miss this. It is a sit down meal, with Scandinavian feel. Four of the princesses come and visit you table side for pictures etc. We met Mary... More

I went to have lunch with the princesses. I couldn't get a reservation, so I waited until the lunch reservations were seated. Be by the podium at 12:30 PM and make sure that they know you want to have lunch. People that make reservations don't show up, and you could make it into the restaurant. The wait staff is so...

We loved Akershus for breakfast! We were a group of five adults, with no children, and we all agreed this was probably our favorite meal at Disney World. The castle is very elegant, and the breakfast foods were plentiful and great (served family style for the main courses, with fruit and Norwegian specialties on a buffet). We have a little... More

We make sure to go to this character breakfast with our girls each time we are in Disney. It is a great way to get pictures with multiple princesses (and skip many lines waiting elsewhere). The potatoes at breakfast are the best part of the breakfast, with the rest being pretty basic offerings. So for the princesses and the potatoes... More

This was perhaps one of the worst Disney character experience I have ever had. We had a table of 5 (3 adults and 2 kids: ages 3(boy) and 2(girl)). While all of the princesses stopped by the table and did a great job interacting with the little girl, only 2 of the, took the time to come to the other... More

I took my daughters (ages 23 , 21) and granddaughter (3)to the princess breakfast. We had a reservation for 930am and waited about 10 minutes before we were called to enter. We had a photo with Belle, then shown to our table. Our drink order was taken and we headed to the buffet line for some fruits and a variety... More

We did both Cinderella's castle and Akershus Royal Banquet Hall. It was very cool to see Cinderella's castle but I think we liked Akershus better. I felt like they spent more time with us and wasn't so rushed. The food was good, I wouldn't say it was the best I had but very good for a character breakfast. I would... More

We avoided trying this place because the menu wasn't Americanized. We decided to take a leap and try it and we were thrilled with the whole experience. It is a semi buffet menu with a princess photo included and the characters also visit the tables while you eat and take pictures and generally say nice things. The salmon was better... More
