    My daughter will be celebrating her birthday during her trip to Walt Disney World. I wanted to make a reservation at Akershus Royal Banquet Hall. Any tips if the online reservation line shows not available? Thanks so much. Robyn

    Hi Robyn!

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel.

    It looks like your vacation at the most magical place on earth is right around the corner!
    Since your daughter will be celebrating her birthday, make sure to stop at Guest Services to pick up an “I’m celebrating” or a “Birthday” pin for her. She may notice some special well wishes as she makes her way through the parks!

    Akershus Royal Banquet Hall at EPCOT is a great way to get to meet some of her favorite Disney Princesses. While you may not have been able to secure a reservation for this experience, be sure to check back often. I have found that as your vacation approaches, people have changes in plans and therefore, may drop their reservation. If you are lucky, you may find an opening! I also encourage you to be flexible with dates if possible and be flexible with the mealtime of day. You can dine here for breakfast, lunch, and dinner! You can also try to see if they have any walk-up reservations.

    If you are unable to obtain a dining reservation here, consider another location like Cinderella’s Happily Ever After Dinner at 1900 Park Fare at Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort & Spa.

    I hope that you and your daughter have the most magical time!
