    I have a 9:50am reservation at Akershus. Is it reasonable to plan to fit in the Frozen ride AND a meet and greet with Anna and Elsa before the reservation? (Park opens at 9 am) I'm not sure there is enough time to do both.

    Hi Whitney,

    It sounds like you are going to have a very princess morning at Epcot! Princess Storybook Dining at Akershus Royal Banquet Hall is a lovely experience. My daughter loved meeting so many princesses, and we have a photo of her with her grandfather and Belle hanging on our wall from this experience. Partaking in many Frozen experiences surrounding this breakfast will make for a nice morning!

    While I suppose it might be possible to do both of the experiences you mention before 9:50 a.m., I think that it is unlikely to be done by exactly 9:50 a.m., and this would make for a stressful morning. Even with a Disney FastPass+ section to reduce your wait time, there may still be a short wait, which could jeopardize making your breakfast reservation on time.

    My recommendation is that you arrive at Epcot at 8:30 or 8:45 a.m. so that you are ready to walk back to the Norway pavilion when the park opens for the day. Head right to Meet Elsa and Anna at Royal Sommerhus. This setting is so detailed, and I really enjoyed taking it in when we recently met Elsa and Anna! Once you have met them, head to your dining reservation.

    Before you leave home, go ahead and make a Disney FastPass+ selection for Frozen Ever After. I would try for a window of about 11:00 a.m. to noon. This should give you plenty of time to enjoy your breakfast, and then head right over to take in this magical attraction.

    Please do let us know if you have any further questions, Whitney!
