Princess Dining

The perfect place to eat and enjoy each princess! We celebrated my daughter's 3rd birthday here on 1/30/16. We had a chance to meet Belle, Ariel, Snow White, Jasmine and Aurora. They even do a princess parade which my daughter loved because she got to hold Ariel's hand during the entire... read more

The only appeal to eating at this restaurant is the chance to see the Disney princesses and have photo opportunities. Other than that the food is nothing special for the price. There is a mediocre appetizer buffet and the entrees are so-so. The restaurant was jam packed literally with very little elbow room. Service was good but not outstanding and... More

If there is a princess you want to meet, make your reservation for the Princess Storybook Dining...and make sure you have a dining plan. At about $200 for a family of 5, you will want one. On the way into the table, there is a stop to meet a princess at the door with a Photo Pass photographer standing by.... More

We had eaten once before at Akershus and were impressed, so we decided to do it again this most recent time around. The number one reason for going is that with two little girls, they just love the princesses and this is a great opportunity to meet a bunch of them. We've done Cinderella's Royal Table as well, and would... More

We went to one of the princess lunches with our young grand daughter. Of course she was thrilled. But we were also impressed with how it was organized and the food was excellent and included a Norwegian smorgasbord before the entree was served.

We took our five-year-old granddaughter to the early morning breakfast and five princesses showed up: Cinderella, Snow White, Belle, Ariel, and Aurora. My GD is a huge fan of Anna and Elsa, but they were not there. We arrived at the International Gate at 7:40 AM. The gate minions would not allow anyone to enter until exactly 8 AM. So... More

I enjoyed the breakfast/brunch at Akershus more than dinner at Cinderella's Royal Table. If you have children, I think there are more opportunities for interactions and pictures with the princesses than at Cinderella's (although the princesses can be different), and less of a rush! I also enjoyed the food a LOT more at Akershus and it's cheaper, so generally better... More

This dining experience has you dining and taking pictures with princesses. The princesses will rotate through the dining room and you get a chance to have the pictures taken with one when you enter. The dining experience is a buffet style dining with a good salad bar. The main dining food is ok, nothing great by any means. This is... More

Went there for lunch with my husband and 3 kids (2 boys & a girl). We were welcomed by Belle then taken to our table. We didn't like the table's location and asked to change it. The stuff & manager was so kind and made sure we were happy with our new table. The ambiance is amazing and the food... More

No matter the age, I will always dream of being a princess. The Akershus Royal Banquet Hall allows you to dine like a princess with princesses. My family and I had a reservation at 5 pm and checked in around 4:50 pm. It is best to check in early because there is always a line outside and there aren't any... More
