This was the meal we looked forward to the most this trip. We were excited about all of them but this one was top of our hope it's really good list. Hope you have a fantastic meal there.

Thanks so much. I was very diligent about taking pictures and the kids even asked, did you get it so I can eat? That garlic was divine. I am also glad I tried it. My DH is the garlic lover but I knew I had to try it or I might regret it. So glad I did. The one thing I will say is if you go to have 3 courses or so, go hungry. We were barely hungry and wanted all the food but if we were really hungry, we could have rocked that even more.

I have heard that from others. I will definitely try it, but only from a restaurant that I trust to do it right.

I think that between YSH and AP (DonaldDoleWhip's report) I want to do both! They both look really good!

Vettegirl, thank you. I can now say that I am a lover of YSH! And I agree completely, will anything ever compare to them???

It's been probably more than 5 years since I last ate at Yachtsman's. It was good way back then so I'm happy to see some positive reviews as I'll be dining there in 4 weeks!

Hi
My DH would love this place. He can never get enough steak!! I've never tried it since I don't eat meat, but I guesss I'll give in and try it next May. I'm sure they would have something veggie for me to eat. The desserts look great!!

I have seen quite a bit of good reviews recently and it was well worth the effort to travel there on the transportation at Disney. Hope you have a great time there!

That is how my DH is also. Red meat is his thing! Looks like they do have at least one vegetarian entree but is it something you would eat, you will have to check out their menu. The one on allears is not quite up to date for entrees or desserts. But yes, the desserts are quite good!

I am realizing that I did not add a photo of us for your viewing pleasure. While I don't have a picture of all 4 us us right now, have to get photopass photos done yet. But here is one of DH, DS and DD at a place I will have as a review in the future with a friend of ours. Can you guess where it was taken???

Great review!!! So glad that the choir sang for you with that filet!!! And you even tried the roasted garlic with the bread - look at you!!! The cherry dessert that your DH ordered looks really good. For some reason I'm into cherries right now.

Oh and that porterhouse is definitely a man-size slab of meat!!!

It was super-awesome. I would recommend skipping lunch before tackling this monster of meat.

I'm late to the party but at least not TO late! Your reviews so far are excellent. Both Raglan Road and YSH are on the plans for us next month! Raglan Road is such a favorite with hubby and I that we will be going multiple times!

Breakfast with the princesses

Day 2, Breakfast at Akershus

So we woke up early enough to get to our first breakfast of the trip. We were going to spend the day at EPCOT and started at Akershus. We love the breakfast here. Who doesn’t love that potato casserole? So, this was our first shirt day. We wore…


We arrived and were called within about 10minutes and got our picture taken with the ever lovely Belle.

We were seated to the left of the entrance in a lovely smaller room. Our server was Therese. She was lovely and friendly and reminded us of DD’s 2nd grade teacher, whom we all love dearly. We got our drinks and then there was the princess parade. DD had NO interest in doing a parade. She said she is much too old for things like that. After the parade, DD and DH went to the cold buffet. Apparently DD is now into yogurt and fruits.

Then out came the plated meal; sausage, bacon, eggs and potato casserole.

DS was in a mood (not quite an autistic meltdown, but darn close). So he wanted no part of pictures with beautiful princesses and also wanted no part of a buffet, eggs or potatoes. He was in this meal strictly for the meat, and meat he ate. We ate and took pictures and while I love this restaurant, this meal didn’t do it for me this year. The food was good and the service was great. The eggs were moist but not wet, the potatoes were nicely cheesy and the meats were cooked well but a little greasy. The atmosphere is wonderful in this building. I truly think the problem with this meal was we weren’t really hungry yet. After having Yachtsman for a later dinner the night before, we weren’t at that hunger level that we went in to rip that meal apart, and I think that affected our overall rating. Here are a few pictures that I took. It is really a lovely place.





There there is a lovely picture of my 2 babies (who actually allowed me to take there picture willingly)

I may or may not go back on our next trip. The food is filling and well prepared and since it is all you care to eat, you can fill yourself as full as you like. And if you have little girls (or maybe teenage boys ) this place is great. But since we have done it before and there are so many other places to eat and my kids really had no interest in the princesses, I don’t think it will make it on our must do list next trip.

I give Akershus, breakfast with the princesses …

3 fish (it won't let me get my fishy fish - I am so sad)

Our cost for this meal was 149.06 (including tax) or 4 TS credits or $37.26/credit

Up next: One of our all time favorites, Teppan Edo. Will it live up to past experiences???

Loving the detail in your reviews.

We are doing Akershus again next month..the potato casserole is great. My DD is 6 and I hope she will still be excited to see the princesses.

We have an Akershus ADR in Dec. DD still very much loves princesses (even at the age of 9), so this meal is mostly for her...plus getting into Epcot early is a nice perk too.

Not sure what expectations I have for Akershus to be honest...
