We made reservations at Akershus Royal Banquet Hall during our May 2013 trip to Disney. We were on the Dining Plan and chose this over the Princess dining in Cinderella's castle because it only requires one table service credit compared to two that is required to eat in the castle. In other words it is a better value because you get to see the same amount of princesses and I imagine the food quality is relatively the same (just an assumption). We were not disappointed. Our 4 year old princess lover had the time of her life. We started by getting a picture with Belle (included with the meal at no extra cost and we received two because our party had more than 4). We then were seated and instructed that appetizers were buffet style. The food options were pretty good, various breads, meats, cheeses. Then the princesses started to come around, the timing was pretty good. We were visited by Snow White, Aurora, Cinderella, and Ariel. Prior to our entrees arriving (which is menu order, nice break from the full buffet style character dinners I might add) the princesses lead a parade around the dining room. Our food arrived and was very good in fact. I really enjoyed the mushroom pasta dish. Afterward the server brought out a desert tray filled with some tasty options that our whole family enjoyed. Overall it was a great experience we will never forget. The only reason i didn't give 5 stars is because it is rather pricey. But it is Disney of course so that is expected.
