My friends and I were at Disney for a week, including 4 youngsters. They have eaten here before, and this was my first time. Eating here made Akershus one of my favorite Disney restaurants. Now, we had reservations 6 months prior to our vacation. We were escorted inside pretty much at our reservation time. The 4 children met Belle one... More

We have been hearing about this restaurant for years. So this year we tackled the Character Breakfast! We had a mid-morning reservation and we were promptly ushered in to meet Belle. From there we were shown to our table in the main hall. We were encouraged to visit the buffet for pastries, fruit, and other selections. While waiting for our... More

This is a good use of a dining credit, as you meet a lot of princesses, and get a lot of super rare autographs in one go. The breakfast is good, lots of fresh fruit , pastries etc. Your table is also given a large plate of eggs bacon and some sort of giant potato rosti. As we are from... More

We saw Belle, Ariel, Snow White, and Jasmine at our character breakfast. It was just precious and I believe we got a free photo with our meal. The food was amazing. I have two daughters ages nine and six, and they absolutely loved this experience! I would definitely recommend this place!

This is probably the best way to meet all the princesses without having to wait in line for an hour. Plus you get a complimentary picture with Belle. My favorite part of the meal itself was the appetizer buffet that had different salads, fishes, and cheeses. Everything was absolutely delicious, minus the brown cheese that's creamy and sweet- that just... More

While at the restaurant, my girls met Cinderella, Ariel, Snow White, Belle and Sleeping Beauty. The food started with a buffet which consisted of shrimp, salmon, seafood salads, salad and chilled asparagus to name a few. Then, there was an entree. We had the grilled pork chop and New York Strip steak. Others in our party had the salmon and... More

The food was horrible. I got violently ill that evening. I had meatballs which were not good. Not tasty at all and cold. My mother inlaw had the shaved beef sandwhich and it was so fatty, she barely ate 1/3 of it.

Food was great (waitress gave great recommendations for Norwegian entrees and beers), with plenty of options at salad/appetizer bar and menu for all ages. Decor was nice. You met a Princess (Belle) at the door for pics, and the others (Arial, Cinderella, Aurora, Snow White) came through on a staggered bases so it wasn't rushed. They were all very friendly,... More

It was cool to see the princesses, but the food was horrible and we paid $200 for a couple sandwiches, 2 beers, and some mac n cheese. Completely not worth it.

We had 2:00 reservations and LOVED everything about this experience. We got to meet Snow White, Cinderella, Aurora, Belle.... The kids loved this experience but I was infatuated with the food! The butternut squash ravioli was To.Die.For. I have been craving it ever since. I enjoyed the appetizer stations also. The chocolate mousse dessert was great too. Yes, it is... More
