Akershus Royal Banquet Hall: A Meal Fit for a Princess!

While my most recent visit to Akershus Royal Banquet Hall was lunch last summer I also enjoyed dinner here as my very first Disney restaurant in January of 2006.  Both times I experienced wonderful character interaction, great servers, and delightful food.  I would highly recommend this character meal to princess lovers-- but if I am being honest I enjoyed the food more at lunch.  At all sittings you will meet Belle (both of my visits it was Belle in the posed photo at the beginning of the meal even though the website says it may be any princess) and other princesses as you dine (I've met Snow White, Jasmine, Ariel, Sleeping Beauty, Cinderella, and Jane here) and you get a keepsake photo in a cute Akershus folder.  

Breakfast is the normal Disney breakfast fare, a mixture of cold and hot foods.  Lunch and Dinner both start with the "Taste of Norway" buffet appetizer with cheeses, fish, and other salads to nosh on.  For dinner I had Beef Tips which were served in a mushroom sauce and it seems an improved version is still on the menu.  This was tasty but my lunch was much better: a sirloin sandwich with wild mushroom ragout and jarlsberg cheese served on a warm bun with roasted potato wedges.  This was delicious and probable my favorite meal of my conference trip last summer. 

While meals here can be pricey, I enjoyed it enough to say anyone who does not get the coveted Cinderella's Royal Table reservation for their family should feel solace if they can nab a reservation here! With such a great locale in the heart of world showcase there is something for everyone at Akershus!
