    Ahhhhh Norway. Miss the giant ship the kids used to climb on, love Maelstrom, and I'd choose the Princess Breakfast at Akershus over Cinderella Castle every time.

    Ahhh I if love Norway. Lots of yummy desserts, all of the CM's are attractive, Maelstrom is fun. We recently had dinner with the princesses. Food was very good and we were treated like royalty

    I miss the old Akershus when it had no princesses and proper food. *angry face for changing it*

    I like the school bread from the bakery. I also like laughing at the prices of the clothing in the store. :D

    Once, on a trip with Johnie, someone remarked about the prices and a woman nearby exclaimed,"Oh but darllllling, it's Helly Haaaaansen!"

    I had no idea who HH was!

    Baleigh and I still repeat that line whenever we see some ridiculously expensive piece of clothing - no matter where we are!

    I've never had the school bread. Heard about it for years. Must put that on my list!

    I'm another one who misses the Viking Ship. I don't think we've eaten at Akershus since they added the princesses. Donna was definitely not enamored of the food on the old menu. I like Maelstrom but won't stand in long lines to ride it. I also like the Norway film. And we've got troll pictures somewhere, I just don't know where.

    Go back! Go Back! Over the falls!!!!!!

    Again, the Skip clan always hits Maelstrom and remarks at the supe high prices for items. But I would love one of those super expensive sweaters. They are the kind that will last and you will pass them down to family members.

    We love to go in the little Stave Church. In itself it is interesting, being a replica of an early 13th century church which can be seen in Norway. There is usually an exhibition of some sort in there.
    I like the Maelstrom ride itself, but the movie is rather dull. I've never eaten any food there.

    During one of our earliest visits I was lucky enough to find one of their fabulous Dale of Norway sweaters on sale and purchased it for Herself. She still has it, although now that we live in FL, it doesn't get much use.

    I like the movie. Yep. I do. :D I like the attraction well enough, but wish they'd do something more with the exit area before the movie. It's such a neat little area. I'd like to see shops there!

    The bakery is very nice, and like Dawn, we liked the original buffet best. :yes:

    Really enjoy the Stave Church, but it's time to change up the displays or add to them, or something!

    Ok, I've now read this twice...I'm not even sure where it is, and I'm quite sure I've never been inside it....

    I'll have to have a look next time we're there.
