Chef Mickey’s and Biergarten Restaurant to Reopen as “Family Style” Eateries at Walt Disney World Resort
A new list of locations indicating where Cast Members are being called back in for work ahead of the reopening has hinted at some of the changes guests may expect to see upon returning to Walt Disney World. Among them include changes to dining. While buffet-style dining is certainly a problematic concept in the wake of COVID-19, it seems Disney is considering alternatives in order to bring back some of its most popular restaurants.
Both Chef Mickey’s at Disney’s Contemporary Resort and Biergarten at the Germany Pavilion in EPCOT are slated to reopen as “Family Style” eateries, where guests are brought a heaping skillet of some of the restaurant’s most popular selections, with the option for unlimited “refills” of either the skillet as a whole or specific items. If you’ve ever eaten at ‘Ohana in Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort for breakfast (same for its sides at dinner) or at Garden Grill in EPCOT (the latter of which is also reopening), then you’re familiar with the concept.
