    I read in one of the travel guide books that the princesses at Akershus are only there "for about an hour" and that you have to schedule your meal for the hour that they will be appearing. Is this true?

    This is not true. The characters at all the character dining experiences at WDW, including the Princess Storybook meals at Epcot, enter the dining room within about 15 minutes of the first seating and stay there throughout the entire time that guests are in the dining room.

    It generally takes the characters about an hour to make a complete circuit around the room, greeting guests at every table. Once they've completed one loop, they just start another. Since it takes about an hour to eat the food at a character meal, this means that you should have every character at your table at least once, no matter when you are seated.

    You are sure to get lots of attention from the princesses no matter what time you dine at the Akershus.
