    Do we need a sweater in Akershus Princess dining in Epcot or Storybook Dining at Wilderness Lodge? Is it cold inside restaurant?

    Hi Phyllis,

    Thank you so much for coming to planDisney with your question! I am excited to help you to think about what to bring with you on your Walt Disney World trip.

    I bring a light sweater or jacket in my backpack everywhere that I go while I am at Walt Disney World. To me, coming in from the often very warm outdoors in Florida, the air conditioning inside can feel quite chilly. While this can be refreshing, I do find that after I sit for a while at a meal I can get a chill. I prefer a lightweight sweater or jacket that I can fold up very small and put into my backpack so that it is not too bulky to carry around all day. I don't necessarily believe that the locations you are referring to would be any colder than any other locations; I just always like to have that extra layer with me!

    It sounds like you have some excellent character dining choices made. Akershus Royal Banquet Hall is such a splendid location, offering an exquisite setting and a chance to meet your favorite Disney princesses. Story Book Dining at Artist Point with Snow White will allow you to meet characters from Snow White while enjoying a lovely meal. Be sure to budget some extra time to walk around and take in the amazing lobby of Disney's Wilderness Lodge when you have this reservation - it is somehow simultaneously majestic and peaceful!

    I hope that these thoughts are helpful for you, Phyllis. Please do feel free to come back to planDisney with any further questions you have while planning your trip!
