    I am visiting Walt Disney World Resort with my husband and 11 year old in a couple of days. We are debating between Chefs De France and the Biergarten in Epcot. Which do you prefer?

    Hi Rebecca!
    As I sit here looking at 8 inches of freshly fallen snow, I am just a bit envious that you will be basking in the Florida sunshine in a few days...and eating great meals at Epcot...good for you!!
    You pose two completely different dining experiences in my opinion. Chefs de France is a bit more refined and elegant in its presentation and was designed by three of France's best known chefs, whereas Biergarten offers a more raucous, casual experience. Chefs de France, in addition to amazing food, offers a chance to meet Remy, from Ratatouille, which may please your 11 year old. But Biergarten, on the other hand, includes an awesome oompah band that plays a 25-minute show every hour. One thing to keep in mind is that if it is just going to be three of you, you will more than likely be seated with others at the long tables around the stage and dance floor.
    If you are looking for a quieter meal, I say go for Chefs de France. If you, your husband and 11 year old don't mind meeting new people and getting a bit crazy, go for Biergarten.
    Personally, I have aways preferred the food and atmosphere of Biergarten, so that's where I would go.
    Either way, you're all in for a unique dining experience.
    I wish you and your family a Magical trip!! :)
