Good food but very expensive.

My wife, two young children and I went here so that my daughter could see some princesses without waiting in huge lines. That part of the breakfast was very nice as Belle, Snow White, Sleeping Beauty, Mary Poppins and Ariel were available for meet and greet as well as photos. The potatoes were... read more

This was our only character meal this trip and we had a lot of fun. It is all you can eat with continental breakfast bar and the hot food is brought to the table. It was typical Disney breakfast but fun for the kids to see 5 different princesses. It is over priced in my opinion but isn't everything at... More

We reserved a spot at this restaurant for dinner our last night at Disneyworld, as we thought that the granddaughters would like to have some more time to see some princesses. They were very surprised and pleased to discover that each princess (Snow White, Cinderella, Ariel, and more...) each stopped by our table to spend time with the kids, sign... More

It was busy but the food was very good. Love the taste of other cultures. Our waitress was from Norway and very friendly. We really enjoyed chatting with her about her culture and foods. They do have the Disney princesses come out during the lunch hour and have the little girls eating at that time parade around with them at... More

This is the one character meal I wish we had skipped. The food was just ok and since we had already done the breakfast with the Princesses it was a bit overkill. With that said, if this is the only one you are doing, you will see all the princesses and have a chance to meet them all at your... More

Brought my girls there for lunch, they loved the Princesses, I love the authentic Scandinavian, fish, salads, and appetizers. I recommend the salmon.

This is where kids had the characters dining and in buffet style. Kids will love it to see Snow white, Cinderella, Arielle, Snow White, Sleeping Beauty. Even participated a princess march with princesses. There was appetizer buffet then your main course and dessert served by German dressed waiters and waitress. You will get full off just the buffet alone. They... More

Myself and fiancé went to Akershus Royal Banquet Hall meal was okay not great. We had a waitress who ruined our time there by standing around and making comments about us while in ear shot. She was rude and for that we won't go back as much we love having character dining experiences. The chef at this establishment is great... More

Belle (only at beginning) Ariel, Snow White, Cinderella, and Sleeping Beauty. They do a wonderful parade around the restaurant and one lucky girl for each princess gets to carry the flower basket. Food was great. Buffet first course, served entree and vegetable, and served dessert. All tasted very good. PRICEY. With tlp, close to $200 for family of four.
