    Considering Akershus for breakfast this summer. Are photos with Belle still included? Thanks!

    Hey Christine-

    Akershus Royal Banquet Hall is hands down my favorite character dining experience. I love the authentic buffet in combination with classic Norwegian cuisine as the princesses roam the banquet hall. My boys enjoyed meeting all the princesses and even followed in the royal parade.

    Currently, Belle is greeting guests when you enter but that may change from day to day. While you enjoy your meal you will meet a variety of four storybook princesses who rotate through the Banquet Hall singing, dancing, and signing autographs. My boys even received regal advice on how to act like a prince. They blushed and it was priceless. You may meet Ariel, Cinderella, Snow White, Aurora, Jasmine, Mary Poppins and Mulan. The princesses are very busy with their own kingdoms and duties and several may show up randomly throughout the year.

    There are no complimentary photos given at this time. This service ended at the beginning of this year. There will be a PhotoPass photographer on site to take your picture with the greeting princess. You will be able to purchase this and other images through Disney PhotoPass service or included with your Memory Maker purchase. As a tip, all Disney PhotoPass photographers are willing to take pictures with your camera for free. They are fanatastic!

    I hope you enjoy this meal and these princesses as much as we did.

    Enjoy making many Magical Memories!
