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!

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

Disney's BoardWalk Inn Review

From the eclectic d├ęcor to the panoramic views of Crescent Lake, the BoardWalk Inn gives you the sense that you have stepped back in time.  That time being circa 1920-1940’s Atlantic City.  The exterior of the hotel is reminiscent of the seaside buildings that could be found along the Boardwalk from that bygone era full of old time glitz and glamour.  Driving through the port couture at the front of the building, surrounded by finely manicured gardens you are met with enthusiastic porters that are there to welcome you home as they take your bags and guide you into the hotel lobby. Chandelier in the Lobby Once inside, the eclectic furnishings are precise replicas of what you would expect to find in the grandest hotels from that moment in time.  As you enter the lobby, look up to see the beautiful chandelier made of antique carousel horses that sits high above the lobby with the check in desk located to your left as well as a small sundry shop and the hallway that leads to the villa
