    Good morning! I was wondering if the buffets are back open? or if meals are still "family style"? Thank you !

    Hi Danielle!

    I love the buffet-style all-you-care-to-eat dining options at Walt Disney World! I have a family full of picky eaters and buffet dining allows everyone to get what they want. While there have been modifications to dining experiences to ensure the health and safety of all Guests and Cast Members, I am happy to say that several buffet-style dining options have reopened! 

    Boma - Flavors of Africa is one of my favorite Disney Dining locations and they are back to offering a full buffet filled with African delicacies. You can find roasted beef tenderloin, potatoes, Durban chicken, Senegalese salmon, and Tunisian couscous. 

    Biergarten in the Germany pavilion at EPCOT is also reopened. My family ate here for Thanksgiving one year and we loved the variety of potatoes, meats, and sweets. 

    Breakfast and dinner buffets at Cape May Cafe have also returned. Their dinner buffet is one of my favorites because of the variety of seafood. My all-time favorite Walt Disney World restaurant, Crystal Palace, has also brought back buffet dining.

    However, not all of the buffets have returned. Tusker House, which used to offer a buffet, is now offering an all-you-care-to-enjoy family-style option.

    When you go to book your advanced dining reservation, you will see an option to filter by "buffet" to find the restaurants that offer buffet dining. You can also choose to filter by "family style" if this is your preferred dining option.

    I hope you have a magical vacation!
