    We have a reservation for character dining at Akershus in Epcot at 8:00 am. We are not staying in a Disney resort. What time should we get to Epcot front gates to get to the restrauant in time?

    Hi Kimberly!
    This is a great character dining experience so you're in for a treat! It's usually a good idea to arrive at a restaurant for character dining at least 15 minutes before your reservation time. Akershus is located at the Norway Pavilion in the World Showcase at Epcot, which will take a bit of walking. So I think you should be at the entrance of Epcot at least 35 minutes before your reservation. Hope this helps!
    Have a magical vacation!
