PHOTOS: Akershus ‘Royal Banquet Hall’ Sign Restored at Norway Pavilion in EPCOT

The sign for Akershus in the Norway Pavilion of EPCOT has been restored to its former glory.


Here is what the sign looked like for the past few months, with a flat face reading “Restaurant Akershus.”

It no longer reads “Restaurant Akershus” but instead says “Akershus Royal Banquet Hall.”

A banner reading “Princess Storybook Dining” still hangs beneath the sign, although this has not been available since the park initially closed due to COVID-19 in March 2020.

It acted as a “relaxation station” when the parks reopened and then became a temporary Florida Blue lounge last year, around which time the sign was switched to “Restaurant Akershus.”

This sign has three-dimensional elements, including the royal crown on top and wood filigree around the name.
