    I would like to schedule princess character dining at Akershus Royal Banquet, but hadn't planned to visit Epcot with the kids this time. can you do the dining without a ticket, or do we need to buy Epcot tickets for that day?

    Hi Beth!

    The Disney Princess Storybook Dining experience at The Akershus Royal Banquet Hall is a great choice. So many Disney Princesses come by your table you hardly have time to put your camera down to eat. When you do get a chance to enjoy your meal try some of the Scandinavian offerings for a different twist or American favorites for more familiar fare.

    You will need a ticket for entry into Epcot to enjoy dinning at Akershus Royal Banquet Hall. You might consider the Park Hopper option for your tickets. This add on allows you to visit multiple parks in one day. You could visit the Magic Kingdom on the day of your Disney Princess Storybook Dining experience and then hop on the monorail to Epcot for your meal.

    Remember Epcot is full of wonderful attractions and experiences for children.  From the Seas with Nemo and Friends to Disney's Kim Possible World Showcase Adventure to IllumiNations and more you will easily find a day's adventure for your family at this park. Please contact me with your more information about your children if you would like an itinerary for Epcot.

    Enjoy your royal dining!
