Oh, how the honesty of a TR stings!
We discovered a love of breakfast and a disappointment in CRT this trip (just wait 'til THAT update in my TR), and for next year we were discussing a change in Princess meals and of meal time. Now I am greatly reconsidering, at least meal time. See, the thing is that I don't quite enjoy lunch or dinner at Akershus, either, so I'm kind of stuck. And I just don't know if I can bring myself to do CRT next trip. Perhaps salami makes up for it, but who screws up potatoes!?!? Even I don't screw up potatoes, and that's saying a lot!
Also, that one picture of fingerprints on Maddie's seat kind of creeps me out, since I know there was no one there before you and the chair hadn't been wiped down from the day before. Leave it to me, with my house days past needing a cleaning, to find fault in someone else's cleaning job!
(PS--I've never seen Mulan or Mary Poppins there, not in person or in anyone else's pictures. Way to go, Allears.)

Shannon, great update. We did NOT like our lunch at Akerhaus back in 2008 (Mark insisted we go as a celebration of my successful cancer surgery...he thought I should be with the Princesses ). Breakfast doesn't sound too bad, except I don't eat scrambled eggs, but I sure would love that Salami!

When we were there, Cinderella was not. We had Aurora, Belle (at the entrance), Snow White, Ariel and Jasmine and Aladdin. So they seem to change it around which is good.

And congrats on passing the test and enjoying the new job.

Well, it sounds like Akershus (did I spell that right?) was sorta kinda a good reservation to have had. You went into the meal with the right frame of mind.....we're there for salami, Princesses, and salami.

Sorry breakfast wasn't all that spectacular. I remember doing that one when my daughter was 4 years old, and we pretty much felt the same way--we're glad we did it...once. At least Maddie had a nice time.

Sorry the breakfast wasn't wonderful! Especially the potatoes.

Maddie looks so cute in her Ariel dress. And I'm sure she loved meeting the princesses....again.

And no, you're not the worst food photographer. That would be myself....just wait.

Sorry that Akershush (sp?) didn't live up to expectations. We ate there once, for dinner, back in 2006 or something, and I didn't find it to be all that spectacular either.

I'm glad that the Salami saved the day and that Maddie had fun with the princesses. The pics of her and Ariel are very cute! I'm also sad to hear that the potatoes were a disappointment, it seems like such a simple thing to make!

And wow, in and out in 30 minutes! You guys are buffet pros! I can't wait until Everett gets to the point where he will eat without being constantly prodded and not need to be watched like a hawk. Speaking of which, I need to go intervene with lunch...

Oh man, sorry Akershus wasn't all that great. I'm pretty sure we met the same Cinderella when we went!

I actually think it's a really pretty building on the inside! Our waiter said it was modeled after the real Akershus castle in Norway, but modified. I guess it's not all that castle-like though.

Thanks for the Review! I finally have a little princess, so I'm assuming we'll be visiting in the future!

Well, as I was reading about Akershus, I realized that we didn't get all the photos in the photo package that you listed. Then, I realized that we had actually walked over to Norway and canceled our reservation, as we were still too stuff from lunch at Le Chefs! No wonder we didn't get the photos! I was amazed my DGD never said a thing about dining with the princesses. Maybe she didn't remember. My DS doesn't like Akershus as we a problems with our reservations both times we ate there which resulted in very long waits. If we go back next year, we'll go there to again, as you said, it has princesses!

Thanks Karen

Salami Rocks! We had very good potatoes there, but the eggs were kinda runny.
Kadence loved it there, I think because they were pretty chatty with her there. It's already is on our list for next year.

Maddie looked thrilled to see Ariel and to be dresses like her must have been cherry on top.

I can't wait to be there! 2 weeks!

The One With the New Dress

Finished up Maddie's latest princess gown this evening, and couldn't wait to share. I really like this one!
