Average at best. Our waiter wasn't very attentive taking drink orders, providing straws, refills etc. My daughter was very excited and not once did he acknowledge her, not even a simple greeting. Whereas, the other three character dining meals we went to, the waitstaff was very interactive with the children. The food was average tasting. The buffet was slow to... More

We made reservations in advanced because we wanted to see Belle. Compared to all other character meals the food, service, and princesses were wonderful! The staff was friendly, food delicious, and the best part about the princesses is they dance around with the little ones at the end....priceless, great interaction. Recommend reservations in advance. A must and we will do... More

Went here with my family a while ago and will never return. Even though we knew we would not enjoy the food we still went because my younger cousins wanted to eat with the princess. Once there and seated my mother asked the waitress if there was any seafood of any kind in the soup. The waitress was said no... More

Catching the princesses: - there is a princess greeting you to take picture with right when you are invited in. - Kids are invited to do a restaurant walk around to show off their nice costumes following their leading princess. - after the princesses come around to each table to say HI and take pictures. You may take as many... More

It is a character meal that features some of Disney's Princesses. We met Belle, Cinderella, Ariel, Sleeping Beauty, and Snow White. They give you a platter with sausage, bacon, scrambled eggs, and a hash brown casserole. Also there is a buffet that has donut holes, fruit, croissants, muffins and cinnamon roll, different fish (smoked salmon & another). Everything is all... More

My husband and I don't have kids yet and were on a couple's trip to Disney. I'm a huge Disney fan so I love taking pictures with characters and going to character breakfasts. This one was cute, but other than Belle all other Princesses were the same as Cinderella's Royal Table (why not have different Princesses at each venue for... More

Akershus Royal Banquet Hall is a great place to take young girls for dinner, but don't forget their princess dresses! You will be greeted by one princess before your meal, and several others with visit your table while you're eating. Your daughters will also be invited to join in a Princess Procession and walk through the restaurant with the Disney... More

Definitely a fantastic way to meet 5 beautiful princesses who all had plenty of time for us (apart from Snow White, she seemed quite abrupt and couldn’t wait to move on and in every photo we have, her mouth is turned upwards, but the eyes aren’t smiling – she wasn’t having fun!). The food was great – maybe a little... More

We ate here for lunch while at Epcot. The food was extremely delicious and it was awesome to meet all the princesses. The restaurant we ate in was decorated beautifully. Inside and out. But get ready to pay a lot of money if the princesses are there. Lol

My family visited Akershus during our most recent trip to WDW. We typically schedule one character interaction per trip, and this was our first time dining at Akershus. We could not have been more pleased with our experience. We visited during breakfast and the buffet food was great, but the "all you can eat" hot items brought to the table... More
