This is such a bummer!
Located in the Norway Pavilion of Epcot, Akershus is a character dining experience. Join various princess inside a medieval castle as you feast on a smorgasbord of American and Norwegian food. Booking a meal here was an excellent strategy to meet several princesses like Belle, Snow White, Ariel, Cinderella, and Princess Aurora and enjoy a sit-down meal.
Unfortunately, Akershus has not been serving Guests since March 2020. It remained closed even when the parks reopened in July of that year. However, Disney and Florida Blue opened a lounge at this location in the fall of 2021.
Many princesses meet inside Akershus Royal Banquet Hall.
We just learned yesterday that Disney is reopening the restaurant on November 4! With Cinderella’s Royal Table a modified character experience, we are happy to see princesses meeting Guests around Akershus Banquet hall.
Reservations will open on October 24, and we are sure they will go fast. If you want some tips to score hard to get reservations, check out my post HERE.
Akershus reopens on November 4 with reservations available on October 24.
Yesterday, we noticed a few changes but not enough apparently. First, we learned that Akershus is no longer a buffet meal. Instead, the meal will be served family-style upon reopening.
Second, Disney is also serving a few new American dishes at dinner to please less adventurous taste buds. Previously, dinner was all Norwegian food. Now, Guests can enjoy dishes like salmon, mashed potatoes, and macaroni and cheese.
Third, the price of the meal jumped up to $63/adult and $41/child. However, Disney still had breakfast prices up on their website. Now, the entire breakfast menu is no longer on the Disney website.
The big disappointing change is that Disney will no longer offer breakfast at Akershus. It appears this change was made after they made the original announcement yesterday. Or, we did not catch it in time before posting our original article. Either way, we are sorry to bear this bad news to you!
Akershus will no longer offer breakfast upon reopening. This means there are NO table-service restaurants in Epcot that offer breakfast.
What do you think of this change? Will you try dinner, or did you prefer breakfast? Let us know in the comments below and on Facebook.
