Author: Nick the Disney DevoMy wife, Barbie, friends Kandi and John, and I had a late lunch at the Akershus Royal Banquet Hall in the Norway Pavilion of Epcot on our last trip to Walt Disney World.

Our meal started with a photo with Belle.

The meal includes a complimentary imaging package including 4 prints size 4″ x 6″ and one 6″ x 8″ print in a Disney Princesses themed folder. Additional photos may be purchased. One image package per group of four paying guests, 2 packages for groups of 5-8 guests and 3 packages for groups of 9-12 guests. The package was delivered during our lunch.

The Royal Feast begins with “A Taste of Norway” which includes sliced deli meats, seafood, and a grand selection of prepared salads and cheeses.

I could have just had the food offered on this buffet and been happy. There was plenty to choose from. The fish dishes were excellent.

Adult Entrees:
Traditional Kjottkake -Norwegian meatballs served with Mashed Potatoes, seasonal Vegetables, and Lingonberry Sauce
Oven-roasted Chicken Breast – with fennel hash, tomato jam and chive oil
Open-faced Beef Sandwich – thinly sliced beef sirloin, wild mushroom-onion ragout, Jarlsberg cheese served with your choice of soup
Open-faced Chicken Sandwich – on Sourdough Bread with Tomatoes, Arugula, Bacon, Mushroom Vinaigrette, Jarlsberg cheese, and Lingonberry Mayonnaise, served with your choice of soup
Seared Salmon Cakes – with pickled root vegetable, remoulade and your choice of soup
Mushroom Stuffed Pasta – with Swiss chard, over-roasted shiitakes and parmesan cream

Barbie and I had the traditional Kjottkake, John the Beef. I cannot recall what Kandi had, but we all enjoyed our meals.

Meatballs-with Mashed Potatoes and Corn
Hot Dog- with corn

Dessert plate was delicious and included:
Sweet and Savory Chocolate Mousse
Traditional Rice Cream – topped with Strawberry Sauce
Apple Cake with cardamom whipped cream

While not as elegant perhaps as a meal at Cinderella Castle, this is less expensive, the food is very good, and you meet several Princesses. The Princesses on our visit (besides Belle), were Ariel, Cinderella, Snow White, and Aurora (Sleeping Beauty).You may get different Princesses at different times, including Jasmine, Mulan and Mary Poppins (who I was unaware is a Princess!)

 

The price of this meal varies based on the time of year, peak seasons vs regular season, and even on the day of the week weekday vs weekend. The general price ranges for this meal are $41.53-$50.05 for adults and $25.55-$28.75 for children ages 3-9. Tax is included, but a gratuity is not a standard, non-alcoholic beverage and desserts are included.
Another reason to eat here has been pointed out to us by a reader:
 “Akershus only counts as one dining meal from your dining plan while Cinderella’s castle counts as two.”

Enjoy your meal!

Hi, I'm Nick the Disney Devo, (short for Devotee). I've been a Disney devotee for a majority of my life, starting with the animated classics. My first trip to Walt Disney World was in 1992, and I was such a fan, I became a Cast Member for a few years at a local Disney Store. My wife and I joined the Disney Vacation Club in 2007, and it was one of the best decisions we've ever made. We've also been to Disneyland, my favorite park, several times, as well as a Disney Cruise on the Wonder to Alaska. I hope my love of Disney shows in my articles.
