Lots of princesses!

We had dinner at Akershus our second night at Disney. My daughter loved being able to see so many princesses at once! Personally, I thought the food was just ok. Not bad by any means, but I'm glad we used our dining plan instead of paying out of pocket. It really is a great way to see a bunch of... read more

best meal experience in the disney world. food is excellent, both cold dishes and the main course and desserts are delicious. We met Belle at the entrance, Snow White, Ariel, Jasmine, and Cinderella at the table. The princesses spent good amount of time at each table for pictures, autograph, chatting. There was a little parade for the little ones with... More

This was the best character lunch of our entire trip! The service was great, the food was awesome and the princesses were very friendly! The food: first we visited the appetizer bar then our main course was delivered to our table. The sandwiches were great! For dessert, it was family style, there was a rice cream, chocolate mousse cake and... More

My family and I always attend the breakfast buffet here. It's become tradition for us. It is expensive and of not on the Disney Dinning plan, I don't think I would go. The breakfast is your standard Disney breakfast buffet fair, large platters of eggs, bacon, sausage and potatoes arrive at your table. There are small buffet stations with other... More

It was a choice between Cinderella's Royal Table and Akershus for the Princess lunch. After experiencing mediocre food at CRT during a previous visit, we decided to take a chance on Akershus, even though it had received mixed reviews. Boy, are we happy that we did! I think that most of the people who criticized the food did not realize... More

We were very sad to see how the princesses interacted with the kids. Princesses would pass your table 2-3 times and if it wasn't your tables turn to see them they would ignore the kids and walk right by. My daughter asked me "why does Cinderella not like me? She won't say hi" when the princesses did come to our... More

We went here for breakfast directly after our daughter's appointment at BBB at the Magic Kingdom. We had a reservation and due to our lack of knowledge on the transportation and the appointment running a little over we were probably 20 minutes late. The staff was super friendly though and got us right in! The breakfast was amazing and the... More

We came for lunch. Traveling were three adults ranging from ages 42 to 71 and an 8 year old boy. There was an appetizer buffet that came with our meal (we were not on a dining plan). The buffet had cold meats, fish, cheese, and salad options that were supposedly geared along a Norway theme. Our meals were tasty, offerings... More

This is our first visit to Akershus and it was a lovely experience. It is a buffet/family style eating. The food was wonderful, and again due to our special dietary needs the waitress checked with the chef and they brought the special items for our child. Our waitress was wonderful. The princess interaction for our child and us was amazing,... More

This restaurant is located in Norway at Epcot. We went at Lunch time. The food is Norwegian so there are a lot of different cheeses, pickled & fish items on the appetizer bar. The appetizer bar is included with your entree for both children and adults. I really enjoyed it. I have one picky and one adventurous preschooler. The adventurous... More
