10 Cool Things You Might Not Expect When Dining At Walt Disney World

  1. Royal Encounters -- While the Disney Parks feature plenty of character meet and greets, guests might not have realized that they can dine amongst royalty on their vacations! There are several dining locations that feature interactions with the Disney Princesses, but two in particular are very popular with guests who want to feel like royalty themselves. Akershus Royal Banquet Hall in Epcot’s Norway Pavilion brings guests into a regal dining area with vaulted stone archways, dark wood accents, ornate lighting, and delicious cuisine. Guests who dine at the location for breakfast, lunch, and dinner can enjoy Norwegian inspired options like Dilled Salmon Gravlax, Gjetost Cheese, Svinestek, Laks, Tradisjonell Kjottkake, Fylt Pasta, and Brassert Biff. While enjoying their delicious meals, guests can meet Disney Princesses including Ariel, Belle, Snow White, Cinderella, and Aurora who are happy to pose for photos, sign autographs, and offer hugs.

The second immensely popular dining location in Walt Disney World where guests can dine with the Disney Princesses can be found inside Cinderella Castle itself in the Magic Kingdom. Cinderella’s Royal Table is one of the most opulent locations to dine in and features plush carpets, stone archways, royal flags, dark wood décor, and beautiful stained glass windows that offer great views of Fantasyland. Cinderella’s Royal Table is open daily for breakfast, lunch, and dinner and features delicious menu items like Shrimp and Grits, Caramel Apple-Stuffed French Toast, Beef Tenderloin Salad, Seared Pork Tenderloin, Pan-Seared All-Natural Chicken, and Beef and Shrimp. While the food is delicious, guests flock to Cinderella’s Royal Table to meet Disney Princesses like Ariel, Cinderella, Aurora, Snow White, and Jasmine!  (Photo credit Disney)
