    How do I make a dinning reservation for 16 people at Akershus Character Dinning?

    Hi Jessica, and welcome to planDisney!

    Fun times are on the agenda when you can enjoy a meal at Walt Disney World with your extended family and friends. The more, the merrier will make the more fun.

    Reserving a dining experience at a popular location like Akershus Royal Banquet Hall could be tricky, but it is doable, depending on availability. Because you can make your dining reservations as early as 60 days before your arrival date, starting at 6:00 AM (EST), I recommend having yourself and another guest (in your party) ready to make your reservations via the My Disney Experience mobile app. With the number of guests, you will likely have to split the reservation into groups of 10 and 6 (for example), but be sure the two reservations are reserved under a different guest’s name. If you manage to get the reservations you desire, please note that with the two reservations, there is no way to guarantee you will be able to sit together, but it does not hurt to ask when you arrive. 

    If you are unable to snag a reservation when your reservation window opens, do not worry. Reservations can be fluid and change often, meaning a slot can become available at any time. I am sending loads of pixie dust your way.

    We will be here if you have additional questions prior to your arrival.

    Have a magical dining experience!
