    Is there any update on when Akershus will reopen? It’s our favorite character dining and the only one we will really miss if it’s still closed in September

    Hi, there!

     Welcome to planDisney, Leigh'Ann. I'm so excited to hear you're planning another Walt Disney World Resort vacation! Aren't they just the best?

     Like you, I'm a big fan of Akershus Royal Banquet Hall. The medieval castle setting, Norwegian-inspired fare, and delightful company of beloved Disney Princesses make for a storybook dining experience that's fit for royalty. Unfortunately, there hasn't been an update about when Akershus Royal Banquet Hall will be available for booking again. The good news is, that lots of fan-favorite experiences are returning to the Walt Disney World Resort in the weeks and months ahead. In fact, the Disney Parks Blog just announced the return of some Character Dining Experiences, including the 'Ohana Best Friends Breakfast! I recommend keeping an eye on the Disney Parks Blog as you're counting down the days until your next visit to the Walt Disney World Resort. It's your best resource for news and updates about Disney Parks and destinations! When Akershus Royal Banquet Hall is available for booking again, you'll surely see that news posted on the Disney Parks Blog

     Have you experienced Story Book Dining at Artist Point with Snow White? This unique Character Dining Experience at Disney's Wilderness Lodge is my absolute favorite. My daughter and I just enjoyed a meal there last month! We had so much fun chatting with Snow White, Dopey, Grumpy, and the Evil Queen. And the food was incredible! If Akershus Royal Banquet Hall hasn't reopened in time for your September stay, I highly recommend booking a reservation for Story Book Dining at Artist Point with Snow White. I know you'll love it as much as I do!

     Thanks for stopping by, Leigh'Ann. Please visit us again soon with any new questions you may have about your next Walt Disney World Resort vacation!
