This restaurant in Epcot's Norway was beautiful & quite the experience for my kids. We had dinner there & met Belle, Aurora, Ariel, Snow White & maybe there was another princess. It was a fun time as the princesses led the kids in a parade through the restaurant & also came to the individual tables to sign autograph books. The... More

They have a good spread of appetizers. We had the meatball and salmon. It was good food and I was able to get all of the princesses. I love that we were able to get a free picture with Belle. I believe this is one of the best character experiences available in Disney.

The atmosphere was great, and the character experience was unique. However, I found the food to be lacking for the price. While I had a disney dining plan and did not pay the "rack rate", when I order a $47 steak, I expect it to be at least on par with a longhorn or outback. I guess you don't pay... More

I subjected my husband and son to breakfast at Akershus because I wanted to meet the princesses and we were staying close by at the Beach Club (holiday planner perks). We all ended up being pleasantly surprised! I think the meal would be quite expensive if paying out of pocket, but the meal included a photo package that was brought... More

Great princess character dining experience but food wasn't up to Disney standards for breakfast. A big plus is that you get into Epcot early though. Pro Tip- Get there early because it is a LONG walk there!

I have been here four times with my girls and for the most part, it has been a good experience. First let me say that if you're on the DIning Plan, it's a steal but if you're paying out of pocket its not worth it unless you desparately want to see the princesses. The food is plentiful and good but... More

The tip alone is more than I would have chosen to spend on this experience. The hall is nice and they had timely seating with a reservation and service was good. The princesses were nice as well and my kids enjoyed that. But $40 for three meatballs and some mash is highway robbery any way you look at it. There... More

Again a great place to meet the Princesses, especially Belle....The buffet salad bar was wonderful, and the food was great. Again my daughter and I have bad allergies and the chef came out to show us what we could eat and couldn't...... Everyone else also talked about how great their food was. A must do also

From years of experience (4 long visits a year to WDW since 1989), I always recommend the Princess meals at Akershus Royal Banquet Hall over the meals at Cinderella's Table. The setting is Norwegian Medieval and no where as beautiful as the dining halls at Cindy's but the food is much better and there are more varied options. Ariel, Belle,... More
