    Hi All! We are staying at POR and were not planning on going to any of the parks on the day we arrive...can we still make reservations at Akershus for that day or do we have to wait for the day we spend at Epcot? Thank you! Cassie

    Welcome to the Moms Panel Cassie!  We're super excited you're hEAR!

    Theme park admission is required and not included in the cost of your meal when dining at any of the locations at Epcot. That holds true for all of the theme parks. If a family plans to take their little princess to dine at Cinderella's Royal Table in the Magic Kingdom, theme park admission is required.

    If you don't want to visit Epcot on the day you arrive, I'd recommend making reservations for Akershus Royal Banquet Hall on the day that you plan to visit Epcot.

    Advanced Dining Reservations (ADR) can be made beginning 180 days from your trip & I'd recommend doing that. Popular places like Akershus book up fast. You can make reservations by calling 407-WDW-DINE.

    Please feel free to visit us with any additional questions. It is our pleasure to assist you.

    Wishing you minnie magical memories :-) Allison
