    The Biergarten buffet offerings are generally kid friendly (in theory!), but do they offer any kid-specific options that are not listed on the menu? Simple vegetables, mac and cheese, any kind of fruit? Thank you!

    Hi Erin!

    It’s wonderful to see you here again with some more great questions for our team. Thank you for valuing our planDisney advice and heartfelt guidance as you plan your special Walt Disney World Resort vacation this summer! Biergarten Restaurant is such a fun, unique dining experience within the Germany Pavilion at EPCOT. I was there recently with my son and I’m happy to share what was available.

    While there are many ways for our children to experience new cultures, foods, and entertainment at restaurants around EPCOT, Disney’s Animal Kingdom theme park, and Disney's Animal Kingdom Lodge, I’ve found that these are presented in approachable ways and always with a selection of kid-specific, American-standard foods on the buffets. At Biergarten, I can share that we recently experienced the following kid-friendly foods on the buffet:

    • Traditional macaroni and cheese
    • German spaetzle (egg noodles with a dumpling-like texture tossed with a simple butter sauce)
    • Plain, steamed peas and small cubed carrots
    • Applesauce
    • Pretzel rolls
    • Cheddar cheese soup
    • Pork schnitzel (thinly pounded piece of plain pork, breaded - my son thought it was a large chicken nugget)
    • Plain sausages (resembling hot dogs)
    • Carving station of various meats
    • Many delicious desserts such as black forest cake, apple strudel, vanilla ice cream

    Please be sure to explore both sides of this buffet, as they may offer different things for various tastes rather than hosting two identical sets of dishes.  

    I must admit, I’m kind of a picky eater myself but have always enjoyed the varied tastes and sampling new dishes at Biergarten to celebrate Oktoberfest any time of the year. The entertainment is not to be missed, as traditional German instruments are played while you dine. The music ranges from soothing to festive and encourages audience engagement for a wonderful atmosphere your family will remember for a long time!

    I hope this eases your mind and helps plan a special family meal during your visit to EPCOT. Another great thing about Biergarten Restaurant is their ability to seat large parties due to the unique table configurations, if that’s needed for your group.  

    Please let us know what other questions you have as you continue to plan this summer escape, Erin! You may continue our conversation by asking me a question directly (click on “get an answer from this panelist” on my biography page) or keep sending them in as you have done with this one, and our great diverse team will be happy to help!  

    Prost! (Cheers!),
