My teenage girls were completely giddy over this character dining breakfast. They loved meeting all the princesses and taking selfies with them. This experience was definitely their favorite during our entire stay in Disney. Make reservations months in advance for this restaurant; it's worth it!

We had dinner at Akershus and had a Fast Pass for Frozen Ever After following dinner. They seated us early and we had a great time. Our waitress was wonderful and they food was surprisingly,, to me, delicious. I had never had Norwegian food. Our table ordered the Skalldyrsgryte (seafood option- wow!) and the Svinekotelett (pork chop- very tasty). We... More

What a great experience. The food was great and our kids loved the interactions with the princesses and especially the parade. Well done.

Very disappointed with Akershus for the price you pay over $200 for a family of 3. The service and hospitality was horrible. The food was not worth the money. It's a 3 course meal. The buffet style salad bar was probably the best part. The food was not impressive dry and not much flavor. The dessert was a little sample... More

Even I wanted to join the princess parade but I was not dressed for the occasion. I had an opportunity to interact with the cast members. They are legit...snow white's lips come from red berries, Belle is not just like her but she is her, Ariel wants me as her 7th sister, and Sleeping Beauty was...well I don't recall at... More

Last weekend was my little girl birthday and we did a reservation at Akershus (3 months before the birthday) to enjoy the meet & greet with the princesses. First we tried to enter 15 min before the time and it was not possible, so we did it 5 minutes before. Once you get in, the first princess was Belle at... More

We had dinner the other night at Akershus and we're disappointed. I envisioned it feeling much more like royal banquet hall but it was just a cafeteria feel, especially if you sit next to the buffet appetizer station. The initial meeting w/ Belle is cute, and the the other princesses we saw (Cinderella, Mulan, and Ariel) were all sweet, but... More

This restaurant at Epcot has delicious food! My husband and I were very pleased with our meal choices! It's setting was beautiful but the theme of "Disney Princesses" is more suitable for families with children because each Princess comes to your table to talk to you and allows pictures with each of them. If a romantic evening is your goal,... More

Had the princess storybook dining lunch here and was very impressed. You start with a buffet of salads, cheeses, and meats which was pretty darn good. I had the porkchop for my entree which was very good as well. And finished up with an amazing dessert. The cool thing is that all the storybook princesses are here and walk around... More

We have been coming to Disneyworld since 1980 and we have ALWAYS LOVED the food at all restaurants until this one. Food was horrible, service was horrible. VERY EXPENSIVE. Will NOT go back. Totally not worth it.
