Celebrate Oktoberfest All Year at Biergarten Restaurant


Biergarten Restaurant is one of the most overlooked and authentic restaurants in Epcot in my opinion!

Situated in the back of the Germany pavilion in Epcot, it's hidden away. It's one of my favorites spots because of the great food, beer, and entertainment. You're surrounded with German heritage and culture. I really felt like I was celebrating Oktoberfest in a quaint, Bavarian village (which is on my bucketlist!)

German food is comfort food! It's filling, hearty, and savory.

Look at that huge potato dumpling!

When you enter Biergarten, you are magically transported to an outdoor Oktoberfest gathering at night. The "village" has gathered to enjoy food and bier, and dance to polka music. With the leaves on the trees turning orange, and the harvest moon, it makes it feel like it really is October. In the distance, you can see the rooftops of the little cottages around town. Thick, wooden tables are situated around a stage so you can watch the house band from anywhere. The polka band, Oktoberfest Musikanten keeps the experience loud and lively!

The meal service times and prices below were accurate as of January 2021.

Kids gather on the dance floor to clap, dance and participate in the musical festivities. The band plays horns, accordions, and even cowbells.

When in Germany....
What would Oktoberfest be without BIER!? You can order a half or full liter stein full of cold, authentic, German beer. I asked my server, who was from Munich, which beer she recommended. She suggested the Hefeweizen Schoferhoffer, which is a grapefruit beer. It was so delicious that we tracked it down here at home and bought some. Every time I smell it, I am transported back to the night we ate at Biergarten. We made some great memories there, and it's on our must-do-again list!

I consider Biergarten a "dinner show" since it's so lively and entertaining. My kids loved the loud music, and shouting "oi, oi, oi!" It's a small, but unforgettable glimpse into German culture and it's fun for all ages.

Paddlefish Restaurant at Disney Springs

After arriving in Walt Disney World around dinnertime with no reservations on our latest trip, we headed over to Disney Springs to see what was available and Paddlefish caught our eye with the beautiful boat shining on the water.  There was space for us at the bar where they serve the full menu, so we settled right in for what was about to be a delicious dinner. We started with cocktails and were very impressed by not only the cocktail selection, but also the bartender's knowledge and expertise on the menu to guide us through our selections tonight.  At the recommendation of the staff, we had to give the Lobster Corn Dogs a try for our appetizer.  These were so fun and very delicious (and I don't normally like lobster!) They are most like a corn dog in that they are on a stick, but don't let that stop you from giving these a try.  Next up it was time for our entrees, we both opted for options "from the port" since we were in a seafood inspired restaurant, we could

Tips for Scoring a Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance Boarding Group

Star Wars : Rise of the Resistance is an attraction like we've never seen before with multiple ride systems and is a truly thrilling, one of a kind experience. No spoilers here (aside from some pictures), but this attraction is absolutely amazing! Unfortunately, it can also be challenging to actually get to experience. Rise of the Resistance is currently the only Walt Disney World attraction that requires guests to join a virtual queue. There is no standby line, FastPass+ or Single Rider Line available at this time.
