Character Dining at Akershus Royal Banquet Hall
Akershus Royal Banquet Hall, part of the Norway Pavilion within Epcot theme park World Showcase, provides a Disney Princess Storybook Dining experience in a medieval castle-themed restaurant. Akershus Royal Banquet Hall showcases American cuisine for breakfast and authentic Norwegian cuisine for lunch and dinner.

Start the day with a breakfast of American favorites served family style. For lunch and dinner, take an adventurous "taste of Norway" with an impressive Norwegian buffet (koldtbord) of cold dishes and hot entrees available Ó la carte.

The rotating menu and buffet selections includes Mustard Glazed Salmon, Sauteed Chicken Breast, Vegetable Stuffed Pasta, and Braised Lamb and Cabbage. Or try the Scandinavian special meatball dish made of pork, beef and capers called kjottkaker. Across the koldtbord is a grand selection of prepared salads, sliced meats and cheeses. Children's menu choices are more familiar: pizza, pasta, hot dogs and grilled chicken.

Princess Storybook Dining

Feel like royalty while you dine in Akershus Royal Banquet Hall. High-beamed ceilings, decorative leaded-glass windows and sweeping archways contribute to the authentic castle atmosphere.

Adding to the regal scene are the Disney Princesses, leading ladies and friends who visit diners at their tables to share a smile, give autographs and pose for pictures.
