The Biergarten at The Germany Pavilion in EPCOT

It’s Oktoberfest all year at the Biergarten. Disney is known for creating an environment that grabs your imagination, and this is certainly the case here. You’ll sit at communal tables of eight, in what feels like the center of a Bavarian village. The cast members wear traditional German costumes. They’ve even created a skyscape with the moon and stars.

The German buffet is amazing. It features cold salads, bratwurst, red cabbage sauerkraut, pork schnitzel and my personal favorite spaetzel. The dessert bar is not to be missed! It features strudel, cheesecake, and black forest cake.

Join the party and have a glass of wine, a shot of schnapps, or a German beer available by the pint, or the liter!

Make sure you stay to enjoy the hourly show. German musicians will lead you in traditional music and toasts played on traditional German Instruments. One song is played with a pair of alpine horns. Another song is a handbell solo. There are close to 30 handbells on the table. I'm always impressed. I don't know how he does it! The show lasts 15 to 20 minutes. Get up and dance a polka if you feel so inclined.

Unless you are with a party of eight, you won’t be sitting alone at the Biergarten. Some people consider this a drawback, but I consider it a plus. Meet a stranger and make a new friend.

The Biergarten suggests you use priority seating, but I’ve gone there on impulse and only been turned away once. That being said.. I also recommend priority seating. You can maximize your time and minimize your wait.
