    What would be the best way to get from AOA to breakfast at Akershus by 8am? If we take a taxi, how long does it take and do we just tell them to take us to Epcot? Thanks

    Hi there Sheila,

    You guys are going to LOVE breakfast at Akershus Royal Banquet Hall and getting there from Disney's Art of Animation Resort should not be any problem.  To be honest, I think you'd be just as happy taking the bus, as the time difference between bus and car doesn't vary too much.  Buses will start departing around 6:00 am ago accommodate guests with early dining reservations so as long as you are on board one by 7:15, you will have plenty of time to make it to Akershus by 8:00.  Just be sure to allow about 15 minutes to unload from the bus, enter the park, and make your way back to the Norway Pavilion in World Showcase.

    If you DO decide on a taxi, another option would be to be dropped off at Disney's Beach Club Resort.  From here, you can follow a path that will lead to the World Showcase entrance of Epcot and will save walking time within the park.  Also, lines at this entrance are usually minimal, especially early in the morning.  When you enter, you will be in between the France and UK Pavilions and you'll need to make a left and pass through the UK, Canada, continue on through Mexico and next will be Norway, home of Akershus Royal Banquet Hall!  I would still leave by 7:15 to be safe!

    Hope this helps,

    Amanda F.
