Dine with the Disney princesses in this character dining restaurant. Breakfast, lunch, and dinner are served family-style, for a fixed price of $47-56 per adult and $26-30 for children at dinner, and $42-50 for adults and $26-29 for children at lunch. The breakfast is traditional American, but lunch and dinner feature a Norwegian koldtbord of salads, meats, and cheeses, as well as a selection of hot entrees. You'll find sandwiches, pasta, and meatballs at lunch, and salmon, lamb, pork, short ribs, and chicken for dinner. All meals include a family photo with a Disney princess.

Before the character dining this restaurant was amazing, 9/10. But now it's horrible (3/10). Please skip this and maybe they kill the character dining again for some amazing food in a classy enviroment. - O T

I agree with Brian Collins. I ate here before it was converted into a Character Dining venue. The food is probably the best and most authentic I've had at Epcot. The atmosphere is serene and beautiful. The servers are friendly, professional, and extremely attractive. Norwegian or Scandinavian food is certainly more difficult to find in Orlando than Japanese, Chinese, Italian, and Mexican options, so I'm giving this a 9-Outstanding rating (despite that I haven't experienced the character dining aspect) in hopes of luring people to this overlooked gem. - Joshua Counsil
