    We are going to MK and I recall eating at a Germany-themed restaurant when I was there many years ago. Now I just see the Biergarten in Epcot. Is there still a German-themed restaurant in MK? Would I have to do park-hopper to eat in Epcot?

    Hi Jennifer!

    I absolutely love Magic Kingdom! There are so many wonderful attractions, dining options and entertainment at this park. You may be thinking of Pinocchio Village Haus, as the name and theming of the restaurant certainly appears German. However, the menu is comprised of caesar salad, a caprese flatbread, Chicken Parmesan Sandwich and Pepperoni Flatbread, none of which is German. 

    This is a wonderful restaurant though and if you eat here you will have a view of the boats taking off from it's a small world.

    Epcot is the only park with a German restaurant: Biergarten. This restaurant is an all-you-care-to-eat buffet and you can choose from a variety of German foods, including hot and cold potato salad, Pork Schnitzel, Spätzle, German Meat Loaf and more. 

    You can also get a pretzel, beer, Bavarian apple strudel, bratwurst or nudel gratin from Sommerfest, the Quick Service German dining option at Epcot.

    If you visit Magic Kingdom and then plan to go to Epcot for dining, then you will need to use your park hopper. 

    Make sure to make your Advanced Dining Reservations 180 days in advance.
