    Have ADR's at CRT and Akershus. Are the princesses the same at both or are there slight differences? Does it make sense to do both or should I only keep 1?

    Hi Krystal!

    If this is your first time doing Cinderella's Royal Table and Akershus, I would go ahead and keep both reservations so you can experience, and perhaps compare the two afterwards. Our family have done both a few times and for some reason, experience-wise, Akershus comes out somewhat ahead for us. The biggest selling point for the Royal Table is obviously dining at the magical Cinderella's Castle, but the food at Akershus seems to be a little better, and the Princesses at Akershus come a-plenty, and don't miss tables (this happened to us at least twice at Cinderella's Royal Table). Also, Akershus is a little less expensive, which is another enticement :-) 

    In terms of Princesses, they constantly rotate, but you can generally expect the following at each:

    Cinderella's Royal Table: Cinderella, Belle, Jasmine, Snow White, Aurora

    Akershus: Belle, Jasmine, Aurora, Cinderella-on occasion, Alice from Alice in Wonderland was there on 1 trip, Snow White

    So, as you can see, the lineup can be similar to above, or a variation. Since princesses are known to move around it's hard to get a guarantee as to who will actually be there the day of your visit.

    To recap: If this is your first trip to both, I would keep both reservations. This will give you and family the experience and then you can decide which one you prefer. Some have said the Royal Table is their fave so it may just come down to personal preference.

    Good Luck!
