In the original plans, this area was slated for a boat ride similar to the one that ended up becoming Norway’s now-closed Maelstrom. However, Disney decided to turn the facility into a restaurant. The decor of Biergarten is inspired by a German village town square, with seating at long, shared tables that surround a stage and dance floor. Here it is Oktoberfest every day with an oompah band and diners singing and dancing along with the performers. The show occurs about once per hour and lasts about thirty minutes, though entertainment is subject to change based on park attendance. The food is served buffet-style with a selection of salads, sausages, schnitzel, and spaetzle, for $24-28 for adults at lunch and $36-40 at dinner. Kids’ prices range from $15-20.

I always have so much fun here. The buffet food is delicious, the entertainment is fantastic, and the entire ambiance is so immersive that you can't help but get lost in the fun here. 9.5 / 10.

Love the shows and very native German food. They really capture German cuisine. The decor is a little too alpine for Germany, and would make more sense in Switzerland but all in all a 9/10

My favorite World Showcase restaurant, the Biergarten is fantastic in every sense of the word.

Buffet had a lot of selections but the food was very average. Entertainment was very disappointing. We're used to better entertainment from German bands. This one is very generic & blah. Would not go again.

A favorite! The buffet menu seems to be shrinking, so we'll see if it still makes the grade when we return in 2 months.
If you don't like to sit at a table with strangers, consider eating elsewhere. We have had some really wonderful experiences with our table mates, and we have had a couple of real bad ones as well. There are 8-10 to a table so be ready for a mix of personalities. Food has been worth it, and the entertainment is fun.

My choice for best buffet at WDW! Great selection and although the price has increased quite a bit over the past couple years it's still a great value. Wonderful atmosphere and fun show!
