    Hello! My wife, son(7 year old), and I will be going 11/3/09-11/11/09, for the Food and Wine Festival. We have been multiple times. We were curious about Akershus, if it would be better for lunch or dinner? Is it a buffett and is it good food?

    Hi Sabrina,

    Akershus is a favorite for families with children who love princesses!  The banquet hall is a perfect backdrop for a princess character meal.

    It's not a traditional buffet.  You order from a prix fixe menu, but there is a cold buffet with some traditional Norwegian fare to begin your meal.  The experience is like going to a restaurant that has a salad bar.  So, your appetizer is a buffet, but your main course and desserts are chosen off of a menu.

    Lunch and dinner are very similar.  There are a few more selections at dinner, but there is a nice mix of Norwegian and American options.  The child's menu features pizza, ravioli and other kid friendly items in case you have a picky eater.  You can check out the menus by clicking HERE.

    Overall, it's a pretty good experience made special by the appearance of the princesses.  If your little boy is not into princesses, you may want to try a different restaurant in World Showcase - Biergarten, Teppan Edo and Restaurant Marrakesh are some other fun options.

    Hope this helps.  Have a magical vacation!
