    We will be staying in PO from 1/31 to 2/7 with 3 girls (10,7,5). We want to try Cinderella's Royal Table one night, or Akershus. Is the extra hit on dining plan worth it, or is Akershus a good alt? Consider both the experience and menu in your answer.

    Regina with so many princesses in your family a meal with Disney royalty is a must.

    Dining in the castle, meeting Cinderella in her glass slippers, and seeing the Magic Kingdom through leaded glass windows is a classic Disney experience that is difficult to top. If your daughters love Cinderella and are enamored with the idea of seeing the inside of her castle, then the extra dining credit at Cinderella's Royal Table is well worth spending on the experience. 

    Princess Storybook Dining at Akershus Royal Banquet Hall, however, tends to be an underrated experience and would be a great alternative to CRT. The menu is more interesting and with the expansive Taste of Norway first course buffet you get much more bang out of your dining credits. The atmosphere is relaxed and casual so you have plenty of time to hug, take pictures with, and obtain autographs from the bounty of Disney princesses who appear here.

    Either princess dining experience will be a delight for your girls so whatever choice you make will be a good one. Please contact me if you want more information or have additional questions.

    Enjoy your regal dinner!
