    Is there any news on opening dates for Akershus Royal Banquet Hall, 1940 Park Fare, or Bippity Boppity Boutique? We are planning our trip to Disney in September and would love for my daughter to experience some of my favorites on her first trip to Disney.

    Hi April!

    You're going to have a fantastic vacation enjoying Walt Disney World Resort with your little princess and it's going to be an extra-special trip since it's her very first visit to Walt Disney World Resort! Be sure to grab a complimentary First Visit button for her to celebrate the magical occasion.

    While Walt Disney World Resort is still in its phased reopening, we have seen quite a few experiences return to the theme parks, Disney Resort hotels, and Disney Springs over the past few months. In fact, traditional Character Experiences and Character Dining have started returning for Guests to enjoy and we recently got the news that Harmony Barber Shop will be reopening next month! Unfortunately, Akershus Royal Banquet Hall, 1900 Park Fare, and Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique are all still currently unavailable we don't have a timeline for their return. I recommend that you keep an eye on the Disney Parks Blog and hopefully, we will get an announcement about these favorites returning in time for your daughter's first visit!

    In the meantime, have you considered getting a reservation for breakfast at Topolino's Terrace if one of your other favorites isn't available during your trip? This is a relatively new Character Dining Experience at Disney's Riviera Resort where you will enjoy a tasty breakfast while visiting with Mickey and friends in their adorable, artsy costumes. Plus, the views of Walt Disney World Resort from the restaurant are incredible!

    Please let us know if you have additional questions as you continue planning. T-T-F-N, ta ta for now!
