I guess by saying it's pricey I may be referring to all Disney experiences. Lunch was $42.99 and I have picky eaters. They both are over age 9 so they still were able to order from the kids menu which was good because the adult menu did not appeal to them at all. This is a great alternative to the... More

We had to decide between Cinderellas table or Akershus for dining with princesses and we chose here because there was a chance to see more princesses. When we arrived, we first took photos with Belle and then we were led to our table. The decor was great, and fit with the Norwegian theme. Our server( I am sorry I forgot... More

Akershus Royal Banquet Hall is a character meal at the Norway pavilion within Epcot Center. Upon checking in you are ushered to a photographer where you are provided the opportunity to take pictures with Belle. Several other Disney princesses make their way through the restaurant during the meal (they generally include Cinderella, Snow White, Aurora, and Ariel). We found the... More

The food was shockingly good. We loved both the Norwegian buffet of cold dishes features salads, meats and cheeses, and our entrées. The pan-seared salmon was the best salmon entrée I've ever tasted in a restaurant, which was why I was so shocked. It was so good! The service was excellent and fun, and our waitress entertained us with interesting... More

We loved this lunch Evan my 7 year old son enjoyed himself. My daughter was in heaven with all the princesses. Each princess took their time with each of the kids. Food was great.

We ate at this restaurant as part of the disney dining plan and I have to say that it is by far one of the best value meals we have had on it. For 1 credit each you get the starter, main course and desert and also a complimentary picture with a princess and other princesses come to your table... More

This was a princess meal, that seemed more laid back than Cindy's royal table. The princesses were warm and attentive, especially Aurora. Our host was lovely, really sweet but rushed off her feet. Maybe Disney may consider hiring more staff perhaps? The buffet was delicious. I loved how fresh everything was. The main course, salmon in my case, was far... More

The food was okay, the service was okay and the princesses for even our adult aged party was good. But not being told the price until you get the over the top bill is the experience I remember. Being told the prices have a range and assuming breakfast would be the cheapest was an expensive decision

Our two year old daughter loved the princesses and they were all super great with her. We were celebrating her birthday (turning 3) and they let her lead the parade around the room. The food, however, was not good and I actually got sick after eating the salmon. The buffet had some good cheeses, though. Not sure we would return... More

We had breakfast at Akershus. Though the line of individuals waiting to eat was fairly long, I presume most had an ADR, we were seated within 5 minutes of our reservation time. The grandchildren and daughter love having their pictures taken with Belle. The food is served family style with a platter of sausage, bacon, scrambled eggs and potatoes and... More
