    I made ADR at coral reef thinking about changing to Biergarten. Good choice? need 2 counter service not sure if I should go cosmic, pecos or pinnocchio? Other ADR are crystal palace, hollywood liberty tree tavern & breakfast with Stitch.

    Hi Christina,

    I've dined at both Coral Reef and Biergarten and my favourite is definitely Coral Reef. To start with you are waited on rather than being a buffet like Biergarten is, also my family loves dining under the sea watching all the fish, sharks and turtles swimming by whilst we eat, it makes for a very relaxing meal. Saying that Biergarten is fun with the Oktoberfest show and the food is great if you want to sample some German food but Coral Reef would still be my pick!

    Counter service meals don't need to be booked, you just walk up, so I suggest you have a look at the menus on and decide which food you'd prefer. Make a list of several restaurants in each park you like the look of and then choose once you're there. You may find that you're very close by to one of them when you get hungry. Out of the 3 you've mentioned I would recommend Pinocchio Village Haus as they sell nice pizzas and a good caeser salad.

    Have a great trip and enjoy all your meals,
