Akershus

Akershus Royal Banquet Hall

Ranked #56 of 96 Table Service Options at Walt Disney World
Located in World Showcase at EPCOT

Last updated: June 15, 2024

At a Glance
Akershus has never been on our “you’ve just gotta try this” list, but if you have kids who love the Disney princesses, they won’t be disappointed. Once a decent buffet, this location has been family-style platters of Norwegian fare for the last few years. As for the prices? You’re paying for that princess face time.

What should you know?

Akershus has never been on our “you’ve just gotta try this” list, but if you have kids who love the Disney princesses, they won’t be disappointed. Once a decent buffet, this location has been family-style platters of Norwegian fare for the last few years. As for the prices? You’re paying for that princess face time.

What’s it like inside?

The inside of Akershus looks like every child’s vision of a fairy-tale castle: high ceilings, float glass windows, 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. The saving grace is that most visitors don’t realize that it is in fact a restaurant and walk right by.

What are the specialties?

The traditional Norwegian meatballs are tasty.
