Kerry, one of our readers wrote in with the following question about Akershus, and the Princess Storybook Dining character dining: “One of my girls wants to go to Akerhause and eat this year. I have heard a lot of negative about the food. Was wondering if Breakfast or Dinner would be our best bet. Didn’t know what you or any of the readers thought.”
Thanks for that question! Let me tell you, the opinions range all over the spectrum about dining at Akershus. My family has been to Akershus twice for dinner, with a third time coming up this June, and let me tell you, we love it! In addition, my wife and daughter have eaten there once for breakfast, and they enjoyed it then as well. For breakfast, you are eating family style selections of eggs, sausage, and other standard breakfast dishes. For dinner, though, you will start off with a cold buffet of deli meats, seafood, salads, cheeses, and bread, and then follow that up with one of the entrees that you have available to you. If you are interested, here is the Akershus Dinner Menu. To my family, though, what separates Akershus from the rest of the Walt Disney World restaurants is the character interaction with the princesses. Where else can you go, have breakfast, lunch, or dinner, and get pictures and autographs with Belle, Cinderella, Snow White, Princess Aurora, Jasmine, and Ariel? We have seen all of these wonderful princesses in the times that we have eaten at Akershus, and we look forward to seeing them again. For me, I like having dinner at Akershus — but I would imagine that you would like it either way. My favorite dish on the menu is the Traditional Kjottkake, which to me tastes similar to shepherd’s pie, but they also have some other really good entrees. The last thing I’ll add is that in addition to the food and princess interactions, you will also get a photo package as part of your dinner price, so enjoy that!
Thank you for your question, Kerry! I’ll close by posting one of my favorite pictures from our last trip — my niece, daughter, and Cinderella! Regardless of your choice, I hope you have a great trip on your next Disney World vacation!
