Too much food for us as we are older, but still would go again

We have eaten here for lunch once and dinner twice. The old dinner menu was better. The newer menu was a little disappointing but still pretty decent compared to some other character places we have eaten. Lunch was fantastic (in 2018). All 6 in our party even the picky eaters found something they liked. Service every time has been great. The princesses have always been great and for the price compared to other princess dining, it really is a good value.

Pros:

Meeting a variety of princess characters, great staff, good food, value

Cons:

None

Disney ruined this once great restaurant when the changed the theme to being about Norway, to Disney princesses. Its now nothing but a loud childrens cafeteria/zoo. They have ruined the menu and buffet, and it has totally lost concept of what it was meant to be. Anything for Disney to make a precious buck anymore. This use to be one our favorite places and was enjoyable for both lunch and dinner. I feel bad for the young Norwegians who have to work here and put up with the crazyness. Its not even well maintained anymore. We will not return and the prices are a rip off and the princesses do not belong here.

Pros:

none left sadly.

Cons:

loud, crazy, dirty, ripoff, not about Norway anymore. just Disney greed.

Had dinner at Akershus last night. In my opinion the choice and quality of food was very mediocre. The salad bar was poor. The only two Norwegian items were the smoked salmon and one kind of cheese. For the rest could have been an American appetizers buffet. As main course I tried the meatballs and weren’t much better than the ones you can have at Ikea! The desserts really were not impressive. You can have much better desserts at the Norwegian bakery across from Akershus. Being Disney I was disappointed. Compared to the past experiences there I was amazed at the change of quality. For me a rip off. In addition the restrooms were really dirty. This aspect is also strange because usually restrooms are really taken care for at every park.

Pros:

Pictures with the princesses in a pleasant setting.

Cons:

Too expensive for the very poor quality of food there.

It was very nice to have all of the princesses in one spot. While enjoying the air conditioning and meal.

Pros:

My granddaughter didn’t want anything on the menu so they made her a hamburger. Nice character dining spot

Cons:

Didn’t feel good was all that great. Had to wait for quite a while outside in line

Akershus provided a calm environment for princess meet and greets. Plus you don't have to wait in line to meet them. My family and I did not enjoy the food there though. We probably won't go back because the we didn't enjoy the food. I give it a slightly above average rating because of the character experience.

Pros:

Princess meet and greets with no waiting

Cons:

The menu is limited and my family did not enjoy our food

Great meet and greet location. If you're going for the food you may be disappointed.

Pros:

Meet all the princesses in one place without the lines.

Cons:

Food is something that is mediocre at best. Children especially picky eaters will be very reluctant to eat.

We've really enjoyed the food here in the past. The character interaction is geared toward the princess-loving crowd so it is usually packed with young families

Pros:

Service and food are great

Cons:

Very busy and high demand due to princesses
