Fret not, School Bread diehards (like myself!)… you won’t have to go without one of the Pavilion’s most beloved treats, as Midnattsol Bakeri will be open as a temporary location and will serve it along with other popular items from Kringla.

Ha det from Epcot’s Norway!

    This is great news! Hope the seating area is larger too; we were unable to get in to eat there this year, although we did enjoy a meal at Akershus. My husband loves the rice cream and is looking forward to having it several times on our next trip.

    Glad about the temporary location. I was beginning to panic about the school bread…and I’m not even going to be there.

  3. Leah says

    I’m excited about a renovation for Kringla Bakeri but also nervous they will do something Frozen themed to it and ruin it like they did to Maelstrom.

    I LOVE this place! I hope it doesn’t lose it’s quaint international flavor or delicious food, but it’s so good that they could use a larger facility.

    Where is this other bakery?? I’ve never heard of it.
    Maybe they’ll be quick and have the refurbishment finished by February 22nd?!

    Dana, Midnattsol Bakeri will be a temporary kiosk in Norway. And we haven’t heard the timeline for Kringla to reopen.

    Oh no! One of our favorite stops for a sweet almond pretzel and an ice cold shot of Aquavit after riding FEA! April’s trip will not be the same :(

    Christine, check out the temporary kiosk they’re opening up to serve some of the Kringla Bakeri favorites!
