Summary

Akershus has never been on our “you’ve just gotta try this” list, but if you have kids who love princesses, they won’t be disappointed. You pay for face time with royalty, but it's still a better deal than Cinderella's Royal Table, especially if you're on the Disney Dining Plan where Akershus only requires one credit.

Setting and Atmosphere

The inside of Akershus looks like every child’s vision of a fairy-tale castle: high ceilings, stone archways, sumptuous purple carpets, regal banners flying. What’s mildly surprising, given the attention to authenticity elsewhere in Epcot, is that it doesn’t look more like the real Akershus Castle in Oslo, which has plain wooden floors; flat, simple ceilings; and painted brick arches. Disney’s version is almost as ungodly expensive as the real thing, though, and you’re apt to hear norsk spoken by your servers. Close enough for us.

House Specialties

Breakfast: smorgasbord of smoked salmon, herring, mackerel, and goat cheese. Lunch and dinner: koldtbord (“cold board” of meats, cheeses, seafood, and salads), roasted chicken with potatoes, pan-seared salmon, house-made goat cheese ravioli, and kjottkake (beef-and-pork dumplings served with mashed potatoes, vegetables, and lingonberry sauce). For kids: macaroni in cheese sauce, pasta with grilled chicken, cheese pizza, salmon with rice, and meatballs with mashed potatoes.
