{review} Princess Storybook Dining at Akershus Royal Banquet Hall

On one of our four (hah!) visits to EPCOT during our trip we did Princess Storybook Dining at Akershus Royal Banquet Hall in Norway for lunch. As the title suggests, at this experience you get to take photos with various Disney Princesses. The restaurant is beautifully themed inside so be sure to look around all the rooms before heading out.

Upon entering the restaurant for your reservation you get taken into a little alcove for a photo with Belle in her yellow dress from Beauty and the Beast. Then you sit down and a waitress takes your drink and entree order. After that you get to go up to a buffet to choose your appetizers.  For my meal I chose Svinestek med Frukt (or Seared Pork Tenderloin) with Apricot Glaze, Multigrain Pilaf, Sautéed Mushrooms, and an Apple-Fennel Slaw. It was REALLY delicious and the pork was perfectly cooked. Kristen had the Flyt-stuffed Pasta which is cheese and spinach-stuffed pasta with olive oil-poached tomatoes, Parmesan cream sauce, and sweet balsamic glaze. She said it was very tasty.

Following the meal you are brought a dessert trio to share. We received a chocolate mousse torte, an apple cake with caramel sauce, and a rice pudding with strawberry sauce. The torte was my favorite, super smooth and had a nice crunch of toasted coconut on top. The apple cake was also very delicious and a great option for those who don't like their desserts to be too sweet. I didn't try the rice pudding but my friend said it was very tasty. Our waitress also brought me a cupcake and card for my birthday!

The princesses we got to take photos with were Aurora, Cinderella, Snow White and Ariel. I have seen other people get photos with Mulan at the meals so it probably changes every so often.

This was the most expensive meal of our trip coming in at $70 each after taking off our annual passholder discount and including tip. While the experience was fun I definitely wouldn't do it again. But it is another one that is fun to try just once as a splurge. It's also a cheaper option than Cinderella's Royal Table which I really enjoy. It's easier to get a reservation here too, but you should still book 180 days in advance if possible. This trip for us was about trying new dining experiences so in my mind it was worth it for us.

Next time I'll probably take everything I spent on specialty dining and do the Wild Africa Trek at Animal Kingdom. But, who knows when my next Disney trip will be now that I have a house and husband to worry about, ha ha.
