Germany Booth Menu & Review (2023 Epcot Food & Wine Festival)

Germany Booth Menu & Review (2023 Epcot Food & Wine Festival)

If you’re looking for an Epcot Food and Wine marketplace that’s on the more affordable side of Disney pricing, then the Germany booth is for you.

Similar to past years, there are several repeating items here and many remain good choices. If it’s not broke, don’t fix it, right?

For example, there is the Schinkennudeln (say that five times fast). This is basically a baked pasta dish with cheese and ham. You certainly get a generous portion for only $5.00!

And for those of age, you can try a selection of German brews here. This booth always seems to have a solid flight with a variety of delicious beers. Though, keep in mind the Schöfferhofer Prickly Pear Hefeweizen is on the sweeter side.

Photos & Reviews

Schinkennudeln

Schinkennudeln is pasta gratin with ham, onions, and cheese. This dish is also part of Emile’s Fromage Montage, the cheese crawl, where you can earn a prize.

Germany Noodles
  • Price: $5.00
  • Special Diets: Kid-friendly
  • Rating: 4.7/5

Our Thoughts

Shannon: Looks great, decent portion, just the right amount of saltiness.
Heather: I really love all the things at this booth. And “pasta with meaty bits” is not only my nickname, but it is also pretty darn
Felicia: This was delicious. Like a baked macaroni with little chunks of ham mixed in. Not too creamy which I loved.

Roasted Bratwurst

This Germany dish consists of a roast bratwurst in a pretzel roll bun.

Germany Bratwurst
  • Price: $6.00
  • Special Diets: Kid-friendly
  • Rating: 4.3/5

Our Thoughts

Shannon: Delicious brat made even better by a great pretzel bun. Would definitely buy again.
Heather: Large portion, good bread, and a nice, juicy sausage.
Felicia: Solid bratwurst on a pretzel roll but the roll is sooo dry. Probably hit or miss. Served with mustard.

Apple Strudel

This apple strudel with vanilla sauce is the only sweet option at the Germany booth.

Germany Apple Streudel
  • Price: $4.50
  • Special Diets: Kid-friendly
  • Rating: 3.3/5

Our Thoughts

Shannon: Generous portions, great taste. Could’ve used a tiny bit more sweetness.
Heather: One of the best apple dishes of the festival. It’s always a great choice.
Felicia: Not a fan of apple but thought this was delicious. Real apple flavor and cinnamon.
Allyson: The apples were a little hard and it tasted like your standard apple strudel. Nothing exciting.

Dr. Lo Alcohol-Removed Riesling

A non-alcoholic Riesling wine with a similar flavor profile of Rieslings from the Mosel valley of Germany.

Germany Booth Menu Review 2023 Epcot Food Wine Festival
  • Price: $6.50
  • Made with alcohol? Yes (only 0.5% ABV)
  • Rating: 2.0/5

Our Thoughts

Heather: I am marking this one down because although it doesn’t include alcohol (and I think they need more options that are non-alcoholic at the festivals), the price is the same for what is basically juice.
Felicia: Maybe a fine option if you like wine but don’t want alcohol. There is .5% abv so not entirely alcohol free. It’s very sweet and fruity. Kind of overpriced.
Allyson: Appreciate they have a “non-alcoholic wine”, even though there is still a small percentage of alcohol in it. It’s fine, but not my cup of tea – or should I say “non-alcoholic” wine.

Gaffel Kölsch

The Gaffel Kölsch is a lighter beer from Cologne, Germany. This is a new option at the booth.
Note: this drink is also available in a flight.

Germany Kolsch
  • Price: $5.50 (6 oz.) / $9.50 (12 oz.)
  • Made with alcohol? Yes
  • Rating: 3.5/5

Our Thoughts

Shannon: Very light, floral flavor. Delicious.
Heather: Good Kolsch! Lovely flavor.
Felicia: This is a good solid Kolsch. Good in a flight.
Allyson: Just a light beer. Nothing exciting. Wasn’t big on the flavor.

Weihenstephaner Festbier

Another beer option at this booth is the Weihenstephaner Festbier from Freising, which is located in Bavaria, Germany.
Note: this drink is also available in a flight.

Germany Festbier
  • Price: $5.50 (6 oz.) / $9.50 (12 oz.)
  • Made with alcohol? Yes
  • Rating: 3.0/5

Our Thoughts

Heather: Light taste but slightly bitter.
Felicia: Loved this lager. Light and easy to drink. This beer flight is great.
Allyson: This is fine. Your typical light beer. Not outstanding.

Schöfferhofer Prickly Pear Hefeweizen

The Schöfferhofer Prickly Pear Hefeweizen, from Mainz (a German city located on the Rhine River), is a new beverage option being served here.

This is the same company that produces the popular Schöfferhofer Grapefruit beer you can also find in the Germany pavilion.
Note: this drink is also available in a flight.

Germany Hefeweizen
  • Price: $5.50 (6 oz.) / $9.50 (12 oz.)
  • Made with alcohol? Yes
  • Rating: 2.7/5

Our Thoughts

Heather: Not too bad but kind of sweet in a way that feels like it just WANTS to be sweet and not because the prickly pear necessitates it.
Felicia: I generally don’t like the Schofferhofer beers because they are too sweet but this one was pretty refreshing and lightly sweet. Solid flight.
Allyson: Oof. This is way too sweet for me. I can’t do it.

Selbach-Oster Riesling

If you’re not a fan of beer, there is the Selbach-Oster Riesling. This is the booth’s only wine option. It’s a white wine.

Germany Booth Menu Review 2023 Epcot Food Wine Festival
  • Price: $6.50
  • Made with alcohol? Yes
  • Rating: 3.0/5

Our Thoughts

Shannon: Light but kind of bland.
Heather: Not too sweet, but no “wow” factor. Would I drink it in a pinch? Definitely. Would I hunt it down to purchase a bottle at home? Probably not.
Felicia: Surprisingly good for a Riesling. Wasn’t too sweet.
Allyson: I actually didn’t mind this and I’m not a wine person.
