Akershus Royal Banquet Hall

written by Jen St. Gelais, specialist in Disney Destinations

Join Disney Princesses for Storybook Dining inside a medieval castle with soaring archways and cathedral ceilings. This princess dining experience is my favorite in all of Disney World! It is here that girls imaginations transform and are able to meet many princesses in one place! The princesses will come around and meet with each table individually and sign autograph books while posing for photos if you wish. The princesses will guide children into a princess parade about halfway through mealtime – its adorable! Be sure to get your little princess dressed in her favorite princess dress for this event! Upon arriving at the royal hall, you may

pose under the white stone archways for a complimentary portrait with a Disney Princess. Complimentary photo keepsakes are delivered right to your table as you dine on sumptuous fare and meet more Disney Princesses. The hostess of this dining event is usually Belle and she is dressed in her evening yellow gown! Beautiful! As a complimentary gift from the princesses, you will receive: One Professional Photo Package, for groups of 4 Guests ;2 Professional Photo Packages, for groups of 5 to 8 Guests; 3 Professional Photo Packages, for groups of 9 to 12 Guests.
