Princess Storybook
Character Breakfast

(or Princesses Storm Norway!)

The replica of a Norwegian castle is the perfect setting for the Princess Storybook Breakfast. Once you reach Norway's pavilion, you check in at the podium in front of Restaurant Akershus. There are three seatings at 8:30-9:00am, 9:50-10:20am and 11:10-11:40am every day. As you wait for your party to be called, you can wander through the gift shops or check out the Princess shopping cart full of pins, princess hats, autograph books and other things a young princess might need for an audience.

Allow plenty of time to walk to Norway upon arriving at Epcot, 30 minutes or so from either the Monorail station or parking lots. There's signs pointing the way to the breakfast in Future World. You will pass thru a couple of check points as you enter World Showcase. A CM will check your PS name and/or confirmation number so make sure you have it with you.

Myself, my daughter and her friend, both aged 17, enjoyed a lovely breakfast in Norway's Restaurant Akershus last October. When seated by a friendly Norway CM, our table already had some rolls and pastries. Soon thereafter, our server brought us a large skillet of scrambled eggs, bacon, sausage, potato casserole, french toast sticks and separately some fresh fruit and bread basket to share amongst ourselves. You can request refills as needed. Akershus is large and it does take the Princesses time to visit with everyone so don't rush eating.

Autographs at PSB

When attending a character meal at a WDW restaurant, you are afforded a wonderful opportunity to meet some of the most memorable characters in animation history. The fact that the characters come to you without having to wait in line is a blessing. You and your family have a few minutes alone with a character. You can request autographs, photographs and (this is the best part, folks!) interact with the characters one on one. Ask them questions or show them things. Most are very willing to engage in all kinds of playfullness. Of course, Princess' are different. They are very royal in demeaner but always return a smile and hug from a young guest. And, to all you young princes out there, watch out for the royal kiss treatment!

During our breakfast, we meet Belle, Mulan, Princess Aurora (Sleeping Beauty, see photo below), Princess Jasmine, and Snow White (characters subject to change). Each spent time with us as they posed for pictures, signed autographs and chatted a bit with my two "princesses". Belle wore her blue dress allowing her to move with ease and grace around the tables. Jasmine even posed for a picture with me! In all, we were there for about 90 minutes with the last ten waiting for Snow White to come to our table. I have read many accounts of people saying they were not happy with how long it took the characters to get to them. I didn't find it too bad but I didn't have young kids with me either. Just come hungry and it might help to have a couple of things for the kids to do like books, crayons or small toys.

The food I thought was good and plentiful. Our server was attentive and very pleasant. She always made sure we had plenty to eat and drink. Restaurant Akershus is a very fitting location and I also highly recommend their lunch and dinner buffets.

Autographs via Post Cards
Here's a tip for you older "kids". My daughter and her friend bought Walt Disney World Postcards and had each Princess sign them. Each Princess commented on what a great idea this was and wrote a nice message along with their autographs. Copyrightę 2003 Scott Thomas Photography
