What Disney World Restaurants to Dine at For Christmas Dinner

Welcome to the first stop aboard Magical Blogorail Blue. Enjoy the ride as we share where we would dine if we spent Christmas Day at Disney.


There are many great restaurants to dine at on Christmas Day. For those without kids, Victoria & Albert's at Disney's Grand Floridian Resort & Spa is probably what comes to mind first. For those with young kids, Whispering Canyon Cafe or Mickey's Backyard BBQ since they're fun for the family. Others might choose Le Cellier Steakhouse or Liberty Tree Tavern. My choice... Biergarten.

Biergarten Restaurant is located in the Germany Pavilion at Epcot. It might seem like a strange choice when it comes to Christmas dinner but it screams Christmas to me. The way Americans celebrate Christmas with trimming the tree (o Tannenbaum, o Tannenbaum, wie treu sind deine Blätter!..), nutcrackers (nussknacker in German) and candy canes are all because of Germany.

With all the Christmas spirit, there couldn't be a better place to enjoy dinner. In addition to the traditional German menu items like spaetzle, wild mushroom soup and weiner schnitzle; there will also be traditional American Christmas menu items.
Nurnberger Gluhwein
After enjoying a delicious dinner here, I head into the Weinkeller to pick up a glass of Gluhwein. Gluhwein is a very popular mulled wine served in the German Christmas markets. It's delicious! You can even puchase a bottle of it to take home with you. They sell the Nuremberger Gluhwein that is sold in the Nuremburg markets.

So where would you celebrate Christmas in Walt Disney World?

  9. I hadn't thought about Biergarten for Christmas, Kristen, but you certainly make excellent points! Great post. Last July we ate at Biergarten with my friends and Cindy, and Sophie and I went to the dance floor and danced to their music. It was a really special Daddy/Daughter moment that I'll never ever forget.
