Crystal Palace at the Magic Kingdom
Join Winnie the Pooh, Tigger, Eeyore and Piglet for a bountiful buffet straight from the Hundred-Acre Woods.

Breakfast selections include pancakes, waffles and a create-your-own omelet station. For dinner, you can enjoy favorites like roasted carved meats and fresh pastas. No matter the meal, you can end on a sweet note with warm bread pudding, brownies, cobblers and soft-serve ice cream.
Biergarten Restaurant at Epcot
Celebrate Oktoberfest every day of the year at Biergarten in Germany, Epcot's World Showcase. This unique restaurant not only features an array of authentic-style German food and drinks, but you can enjoy live entertainment right inside the spacious dining room. You'll feel like you've entered a Bavarian village as you dine at long communal tables in front of live musicians and performers. Of course, there's always plenty of polka dancing here. Food offerings include bratwurst, rotisserie chicken, schnitzel and a variety of salads. And it wouldn't be Oktoberfest without a frosty stein of German beer.
