    We have ADR for Akerhaus at 9:30am on a day that the park opens at 9. What time should we arrive? How do we get around the crowd waiting for the park to open? We will have 2 strollers with us and want to avoid any issues that could make us late.

    Hi Kim,

    If you will be using Disney's complimentary transportation system, I would plan on leaving your Resort hotel no later than 8.30am.

    If you arrive at Epcot before the theme park has opened, make your way over to a Cast Member at the turnstiles by the entrance (I would suggest going to the far right hand side) and explain that you have a dining reservation at Akershus Royal Banquet Hall. You will be asked to provide your surname and will then be allowed to enter the theme park and will need to make your way through the Future World section to the World Showcase where Akershus Royal Banquet Hall can be found in the Norway Pavilion. I would also bring a note of your reservation number just to be on the safe side.

    If the theme park has already opened when you arrive, you will find that the crowds will soon disperse and I can't see any reason at all why you would have any problems in getting to your breakfast on time.

    Wishing you a magical trip!
