We actually really enjoy Akerhus, granted we never visited before it was a character breakfast.
We have done both breakfast and lunch.
For breakfast there is a buffet with fruit and cheese and deli meats, and then if I remember correctly they bring a large plate for all your table with scrambled eggs, bacon, sausage, etc...
For lunch you also get a starter buffet with salad options, cheese, deli meats, even some caviar and then you choose your appetizer and dessert. We thought the food was pretty good, and since our kids eat regular adult food and prefer it over burgers, fries and nuggets, it was a great place to be able to give them a decent meal.
The princesses for us make this place a must do, although it CAN get crazy busy. We still think its worth it.... but, if I didnt have 2 little princesses in tow, we would probably head to Bistro de Paris (or whatever it is called nowadays) instead!
My understanding from CM friends is that Disney chose to have a Princess character greet there because it's the only castle in EPCOT.
I did like the "old" Akershus buffet, but haven't been since so can't compare to now. I'm not a huge character meal person, so there's no real allure for me to want to dine there.
Ohhhh Vikings and perhaps a troll or two would make this more fun!
I wouldn't describe Vikings as 'fun' lol
Lol well they would be Disneyfied
Never eaten at Akershus, but Nine Dragons was really good the last time we were there. My husband and I were beyond happy with our meal. :)
