Lunch at Epcot’s Akershus Royal Banquet Hall was a last minute addition to my nephew’s dining schedule. Sometimes spur of the moment ADRs at Disney World can be good, sometimes not. Read on to see which category their Akershus lunch fell in.
The appetizer at Akershus (whether on the Deluxe Dining Plan like they were or not on the DDP) is a buffet of cold foods. There were no photos taken of this but here is the description from the menu: Everyone’s Royal Feast begins with an authentic “Taste of Norway” featuring some of the finest Scandinavian Seafood, Imported Cheeses, cured and sliced Meats, and a vast selection of Salads and Fruits.
His Comments: My wife didn’t like anything on this buffet. I thought it was okay.
Then for their entrees, my nephew chose the…
Norwegian Turkey Club with Caraway Havarti, Lettuce, Tomato, Applewood-smoked Bacon, Lingonberry-Basil Mayonnaise, and House-made Pickles
His Comment: This sandwich was Subway quality.
His wife had the…
Pan-seared Salmon with Roasted Potato Cake, Pickled Fennel Slaw, and Aquavit Cream Cheese
Her Comment: Nothing special.
And for dessert at Akershus everyone gets the Royal Chef’s Dessert Plate…
An assortment of Norwegian-inspired desserts
His Comment: These were just okay.
Their Overall Comments: This was a mistake, easily our least favorite meal of the trip.
