Princesses wander around as you eat and visit with each table, which is typical at a character meal. The Princesses at Askershus change daily, but we were able to see Cinderella, Sleeping Beauty, Snow White and Ariel. We were pretty much finished with our food by the time they started visiting, so there weren't any out for about the first 45 minutes. There is a Princess Processional during the meal where the Princesses invite all of the children to parade around the restaurant. Ariel was our designated Princess who led our group of kids. I have to say I am so impressed with the face characters that talk. They are always playing their part. My son was the only boy in the group and she referred to him as a "sailor" and invited him to join the parade. Too cute!
My daughter is on a mac n cheese kick right now and it seems to be the only thing she will eat. There wasn't anything on the kids menu that was a cheesy pasta, so we asked the waiter if it was possible to make for her. He checked with the chef and we were given the green light. Woo hoo! It was great! The sauce they used tasted like a mushroom cream sauce.
I ordered the oven roasted chicken breast that comes on top of vegetable-barley risotto and asparagus with a mushroom cream sauce. Remember when I said I was picky? Wow, this was so good! The chicken was so tender and juicy and the risotto was amazing.
Dessert comes as a shared plate. There was a rice pudding with strawberry sauce, an apple strudel and a very rich chocolate mouse. Everything was delicious!
It's a pricey meal, but definitely worth the Princess interaction and the gourmet food. We were on the Disney Dining Plan, so this is a great pick for a table service restaurant!
