My husband and I had dinner here in September to celebrate our 30th anniversary. We had dined here about 12 years ago when our children were young and had really enjoyed the character breakfast. The restaurant is very nice with a castle theme and all of the staff were friendly and very good. The dinner had a great cold bar... More

Epcot has been one of my favorite places to go since a child. Growing up we did not have character dinning like they have today and highly recommend one for Disney fans. One of the few places you can have a meal with just Princesses is at the Akershus Royal Banquet Hall in Epcot near the new Frozen ride. You... More

I was at first very disappointed with the breakfast buffet, Very little on it. I did not realize it was afamily style breakfast. It was the best Breakfast we had at Disney world. The Servers were great and since we were at epcot they were from Norway. Just adds to the experience.

What a nice breakfast and memorable day for my granddaughter who was celebrating her 3rd birthday. She was able to walk around the restaurant with a princess in a parade song and she felt like a princess all day after breakfast. The food which is family style and a buffet was good and our waitress was wonderful.

This is a character meet and greet restaurant in EPCOT at the Norway pavilion. The princesses are awesome enough, but the restaurant itself is really cool! Castle like. Stone walls and floors. Very cool. But the food is really good as well. There's a salad and app bar you can indulge in before your entrée. And not unlike all of... More

It's rare for me to rate anything Disney does as less than average, but the Princess Brunch at Akershus was a rare miss. My girls got to talk to, and interact with all the princesses, and they each spent a lot of time with them. The wait staff was prompt, and accommodated my wife's Gluten allergy well. But the food...

We came here with a dining credit, and would try again with a dining credit, but not pay outright. Food was meh, the waitress was kinda unfriendly and fast, loved Cinderella and Snow White, but Ariel and Aurora seemed bored to be there. Probably enjoyed the little buffet more than the pot roast (braised beef) plate. My daughter got Mac... More

We've eaten here for Break, Lunch, and Dinner. So far, breakfast was by far the best! They have a nice buffet of muffins, danishes, etc... and serve the table family style eggs, sausage, bacon, etc. You can request more as wanted. They also do a promenade of all the princesses, and was adorable. My daughter loved it! Character interactions were... More

We would eat here again. Decent service, decent food. It's an experience all Disney lovers should have to dine with several of the Princesses walking around with the customers.

We have tried just about every character meal and this by far is the least favorite- Yes you get to meet the princesses - but you can do that at Cinderella's table too ( and that meal was spectacular) . Not a fan of the food- much better selection at other restaurants. Most likely will never return
