    how long does the dinner usually last at Akershus banquet hall. we have a 7:55 dinner reservation and would like to see illuminations with a fast pass at 8:55 p.m. I am guessing we would not make the fast pass for illuminations. Thanks.

    Hey there Helaine!

    When it comes to character dining experiences I suggest blocking out approximately 1 1/2 hours. This will give you plenty of time to enjoy your meal and meet all the attending princesses. This isn't to say you couldn't leave a little early to make your way to the Illuminations: Reflections of Earth FastPass+ viewing area between the Tower gift shops.

    Some other ideas to help you enjoy both experiences are: (1) arrive early at Akershus to see if you could possibility be seated early and (2) regularly check to see if a more suitable time becomes available.

    I hope this helps with your planning. If you have any other questions about your Walt Disney World vacation please come back and see me.

    Wishing you a *MAGICAL* vacation and a pixie-dusted day!
