With unique restaurants featuring tastes from around the globe, Epcot offers a smorgasbord of dining locations. Today, guest author Rebecca Elliott shares her dinner experience at the Biergarten located in the Germany pavilion.
Future World highlights technology while the World Showcase, on the other side of World Showcase Lagoon, celebrates international culture. There are 11 pavilions in the World Showcase, each themed and dedicated to a specific country. The restaurants are by far the main attraction. Many pavilions have two or more restaurants that serve food inspired by their representative countries.
Instead of dining at our usual spot Chefs de France in the France pavilion , my family and I decided to try something completely new on our most recent visit. This is how we found ourselves at Biergarten in the Germany pavilion. Biergarten is located in the back of the Germany pavilion, which is the fourth pavilion in if you enter the World Showcase from Future World and start from the left. The main entrance of the boat ride is now the dining area for Biergarten.
The setting for Biergarten is a quaint Bavarian village celebrating Oktoberfest. You are seated in the town square at communal tables, ready to enjoy traditional German music and food. It is dusk no matter what time of day you eat , and the atmosphere is celebratory. We said we were, and made our way to the waiting area. When our buzzer went off a few minutes later, we were corralled with two other families by a sweet hostess wearing a dirndl who reminded us again that seating would be shared.
My family and I were fine with this. It seemed to lend itself to the Oktoberfest atmosphere and offered a fun way to meet other Disney enthusiasts. One of the families immediately had a problem when we were seated. My husband and I offered to break up our party, but they chose to go with the original setting and sulk instead.
This bugged me, because we were told several times that we would be sharing a table. Why not go with the flow and join the fun?
The whole time we ate, we were entertained by a traditional oompah band. They were a delight, playing all the traditional German instruments, including the accordion and the alpenhorn.
There is a dance floor in front of the stage, and the crowd is encouraged to sing and dance along. Children especially enjoyed this. We were quickly greeted by our server, a German gentleman in lederhosen who took great delight in explaining the buffet and describing the foods we could expect there.
Before letting us loose, he took our drink order. In true Oktoberfest tradition, guests were encouraged to order beer by the liter! Our tablemates did just that. We all headed to the buffet, which was stocked with traditional German food and some not so traditional foods to accommodate the less adventurous.
First up were the cold salads. There were several to choose from, with a variety of tastes and textures, from creamy and mild to crisp and tangy. Next came the hot items. Many traditional German dishes were represented, including schnitzel, spaetzle, rouladen, and different sausages with sauerkraut. There were also items like roast chicken and green beans for those feeling less adventurous. There is a nice selection of sauces and chutneys if you feel your dish needs a little extra oomph.
There were many to choose from, including some traditional German delights like apple strudel and linzer squares both delicious. There were also shot glasses filled with Bavarian cream that could be topped with strawberry compote. My daughter loved those! Biergarten is a festive restaurant with an abundant selection of German-inspired dishes.
There is enough variety on the all-you-can-eat buffet for everyone to find something to enjoy. Our early reservation ensured the selections were well-stocked and the staff was friendly and attentive. The only challenge was not having any control over who was seated at our table, and we ended up with a couple of duds. Rebecca Elliott writes and hosts the food blog Home Cooks Unite!
She is a dedicated foodie and Disney enthusiast whose latest trip to the Magic Kingdom included some incredible dining experiences. Has your family dined at Biergarten? Share your experiences in the comments below! One of our favorites and a must do.
If you go during the Christmas season, the special holiday show is a wonderful addition to the experience! We have had the opportunity to meet some great people. My wife and daughter love the stage area, and take advantage of it to dance off the hearty food. Biergarten, is a family favorite and will be for many years. We have gone a few times at lunch — how do the selections differ at dinner? I agree with your take on the seating.
DH and I are fine mixing it up with others or keeping to ourselves, depending on our tablemates. My family really enjoyed Biergarten. The food and atmosphere are amazing.
Our server was funny and very good with our kids. Since this was a family reunion we had a party of 10 and did not have to share a table with others. I would recommend this place for any large groups as this would almost ensure a table to yourselves.
My personal opinion is that if you do share the table with a few grumpys, it could sour the enjoyment of your meal. I too sat with a couple of duds. My first time going we were a party of 2. We sat with a couple, and a single woman who was traveling alone. The food was tasty, the conversation was polite, but interesting and overall, it was a fun experience.
I went back on a trip the next year with my brother, and we were seated with a family of an older man, his two full grown sons, and a mother and her two daughters. ONe of the daughters refused to sit down and just stood there for a few minutes. It was incredibly awkward. After she was pursued to sit, she refused to eat and just sat there, sulking. The other daughter ate almost nothing, and just sat there, sulking as well.
The food was just meh. One of my favorites…. However, I love this kind of food. And Disney tells you very clearly during the reservation process AND several times before you get to your table what the seating situation is. Plenty of time to back out. By the end of our meal, the disgruntled couple was singing German songs, so it turned out to be a win.
I think the litre of beer helped! My friends and I went during the holidays. I would go again, but only at the holidays. We have eaten here many times even before it was a buffet. We prefer lunch over dinner as dinner is much more crowded and loud. The food is delicious love the Bavarian cheesecake with vanilla sauce on top!
Just came back from WDW and we ate here exactly 2 weeks ago. We were seated on the upper tier at the railing with a family consisting of a grandparents, their daughter and 2 grandchildren. We liked the food very much. The creamy herb salad dressing was delicious. I think it was dill. Loved the pretzel rolls! Wish I could have eaten more than one but I wanted to be able to eat plenty of schnitzel and bavarian pot roast or sauerbraten, not sure.
However, he lived in Germany as a kid and really wanted to try to food, so we went for lunch. The folks we were seated next to greeted us politely but kept their conversation within their group. When we ended up standing at the buffet together, I found out they lived only 40 miles away from us in Virginia. The food was very good, more home-style than restaurant, and even our extremely selective eater son found plenty to enjoy.
Great with coffee to chase the beer. We really enjoyed Biergarten 2 weeks ago when we ate here, though I must agree with many of you that it could have been even better with better table-mates. Beer…at a German restaurant…I kinda thought it was required: But, after getting over our tablemate situation, we really enjoyed the food. The pretzel rolls dipped in beer cheese soup…yum! And my daughter age 4 stuffed herself silly with sausages and apple strudel.
It's just less likely to include three martinis and a glass of port. Lunch with a client, potential business partner or new colleague can often be more productive than an office meeting. Getting out of the office and off the phone creates an environment more conducive to relaxing and candid conversation.
When inviting someone to lunch, be respectful of his or her time and position. If inviting a superior you don't know well, don't risk being presumptuous--you might opt for suggesting coffee instead. If you're inviting, offer up some suggestions and let your guests pick.
If they don't care, it's on you. But make sure to be careful and anticipate their preferences. You don't want to bring a vegetarian to a steakhouse. If inviting someone to discuss next year's budget cuts, best to skip the meal at the most expensive restaurant in town.
If your guest choses the place, don't forget to compliment her on the choice. Always know the set-up of the restaurant and make sure both the venue and your table are right for your objective. One of my colleagues swears by this rule. If it's a celebratory or casual lunch with people he knows well, he gets a table in a central area, closer to the bar, where it's typically more boisterous. If it's a serious conversation and he wants to get something accomplished, he opts for a quiet table in the corner.
On the golf course, the common rule of thumb is not to get down to business before the fourth hole. At the table, it's a bit more ambiguous. If you're having a social conversation, don't bring up business until you have received your drinks and ordered your meals. Then, when business talk commences, frame the conversation around your guest.
Ask about her business, what she's working on and where she needs help. And given that I travel enough and have dinners with portfolio companies, etc. I have nobody in mind.
So what can you do? And when is lunch or dinner OK? First date, speculative meeting: I always recommend you ask for coffee. You become an easy second date to accept. First date, high intent: You might get an hour. I want them to be the least amount inconvenienced. I want the meeting. I want it to be easy for them to have it. It can be great for second VC meetings. I always prefer at your office so I can kick the tires. I like board meetings at your place so we can pull in other team members and hear from them.
Talk about more than just biz. Or how about we meet first thing in the morning and grab a quick breakfast? But what about lunch, Mark? Are you really that grouchy? I actually love the right kind of lunch meetings.
