Amid the pandemic, buffet dining was suspended at Walt Disney World Resort for quite some time. However, now we are seeing all-you-care-to-enjoy self-serve buffet dining return to a number of restaurants at The Most Magical Place on Earth.

Disney Parks Blog shared the following news about buffet service returning to Biergarten at EPCOT:

Beginning Aug. 29, Biergarten Restaurant in the German pavilion at EPCOT will offer a buffet experience for lunch and dinner. Enjoy your favorite German dishes – pretzel rolls, bratwurst, spätzle, schnitzel, and a variety of desserts, including apple strudel and black forest rolls. Prost!

Disney also announced that buffet service is returning soon to Crystal Palace at EPCOT:

Inspired by Victorian greenhouses of the late 1800s, The Crystal Palace at Magic Kingdom Park is such an enchanting spot to dine. I am happy to announce starting Sept. 12, their buffet will open for lunch and dinner where you can feast on Parker House rolls, create-your-own fresh garden salad, seared pork tenderloin, fire-roasted prime rib, braised beef short ribs, and more.
