Are Some Disney Restaurants Changing from Buffet to Family Style?

disney restaurants

We reported earlier today that more Disney Cast Members will be returning to work and which locations they are returning too. Most are Disney restaurants. We noticed that some of those restaurants which are buffet style had the words ‘family style’ in parenthesis next to the restaurant name.

Two of the restaurants listed were Chef Mickey’s and Biergarten. These restaurants are normally buffet style where guests serve themselves. The ‘family style’ next to them could mean that they will no longer allow guests to serve themselves. Cast Members would bring guests food to their table on platters much like restaurants such as Ohana and Hoop-Dee-Doo Revue.

Disney has already shared that self serve changes will be implemented at Disney World. It was previously announced that beverages and other items that are usually self-serve will instead be served by Cast Members.

Keep in mind this is all speculation as Disney has not released an official statement regarding these restaurants switching from buffet style to family style.
