    Hi everyone,my question is about the Akershus Royal banquet hall. We are going for breakfast at 9:35. How long roughly does a meal take there? I have an appointment at bippity boppity boutique at 11:55. Is that enough time to eat then get to magic kingdom?

    Hello Kimberly! Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel.

    You have an Endlessly Magical morning packed to the brim with Disney Princesses planned for your upcoming Walt Disney World Resort Vacation. During these tightly-packed magical experiences, timing is crucial.

    My favorite Disney Princess Character Meal is Princess Storybook Dining at Akershus Royal Banquet Hall in the Norway Pavilion at Epcot.  

    The Princess Storybook Dining at Akerhsus Royal Banquet Hall experience lasts roughly 60 minutes once you reach your table (this includes your meal and meeting the Princesses). If you plan 60 minutes to exit Epcot, board the monorail(s) to Magic Kingdom and make it up to Cinderella Castle and Bippity Boppity Boutique, you give yourself 20 minutes of wiggle-room to take into account any unexpected setback that may occur.

    I recommend that you arrive for your Advanced Dining Reservations earlier than 9:35 am. If Cast Members have the room, you may be able to start your Princess Storybook Dining Experience earlier than your 9:35 am Reservation.

    Inform your server if you are waiting to see a particular Princess once your meal is complete. They will do all they can to arrange a quick meeting to have you on your way that much quicker.

    I would be remiss not to suggest attempting Advanced Dining Reservations to dine with Disney Princesses at Cinderella's Royal Table if you are concerned about timing as it is located right next to the Bippity Boppity Boutique at Magic Kingdom.

    Bon Appétit!
