Frustrated that Disney reservations won't give me buffet price!

The website states the range of prices for Biergarten at $15-$30 per adult, so I asked the reservationist what I can expect to pay for lunch on
August 29th...she tells me $15-30 per person. Perhaps I am alone in this, but budgeting $45. or $90. is quite a different story to me.

Does anyone know how to get a more accurate picture of actual prices?

TIA!

They always give a range because it depends on when you go and what currently is being charged.

I would call back and talk to another CM. If you give them an exact date they have always been able to quote the exact price for adult and child. Unless this is something brand new, they should be able to help you.

That is frustrating! I would budget for the higher amount and see it as a bonus if it comes in cheaper

Remember, the person to whom you are talking is in either a call center somewhere or working from home. They have no idea. They are quoting from what they are told. Some have never been to Disney World. This is from allears for lunch -

$23.42-$27.68; Child (ages 3-9) price range: $12.77-$14.90

The range is because Disney COULD charge for a higher attendance period (which they do for all buffets) and August 29th COULD be in that window. I'd go with the $28, round up to $30 and then pad it a bit since those prices are from February, 2013.

Of course, with the Biergarten, I'd add another $10 at least for the beers.

Thanks everyone, for the support!

3 adults, and I did give her the date....I did figure that she was not very seasoned, as I know $15. is really kid pricing, but it irks me a little to not get a price because it basically tells me it is more of a whim based price than a price. Who else gets away with that? I suppose it's all part of the magic:

SUPRISE!...I can't pay my bill maybe I'll be washing dishes with Hans in the back.
