Which should I choose for our Epcot ADR in January? I am torn between these 2 choices. I have 3 kids also ages 4, 6, 8. I would love any feedback thanks!

Good evening: I've eaten at both. Via Napoli would probably be easier to feed younger children than Biergarten. However, the good at Biergarten is much better and the atmosphere/entertainment is wonderful. The meal is a buffet so I am sure there would be something for your kids to eat. Via Napoli is basic Italian with pizza and pasta. I would definitely opt for Biergarten in Germany. In fact, we plan to eat there again on our next visit.

Have fun and happy holidays.

My 4 year old loved biergarten! We were sat with another family with young children and they enjoyed playing and dancing to the band together. Its a very friendly and playful atmosphere

I too have eaten at both. I would choose Via Napoli in a heartbeat over Biergarden. A buffet is a lot of work with young children.
I much prefer the food and the atmosphere of Via Napoli
Enjoy

I've been to both, and I also would suggest Via Napoli, but it really depends on your family. My DD is not an adventurous eater, so she didn't like anything at the Biergarten. But the atmosphere is much better at there IMO. The band is good, my DD even got my DH to get up and dance with her! Via Napoli seemed kind of hectic when I went, but I thought the pizza was great!

Food at Via is much better than Biergarten IMO!!! We absolutely love Via. Great food every time!! Both pasta & pizza are amazing. Atmosphere is really pretty here too.

Atmosphere is fun at biergarten, the band is entertaining. The food is decent, but not amazing like at Via.

My DSs (7 and 2) loved the entertainment at Biergarten. They had no problem finding food they like.

But...we also love the food at Via Napoli so both are great choices for our family.

Wow, my two favorite Epcot restaurants! Personally, I'd choose Biergarten. We have three children and everyone eats well. That being said, we never leave VN hungry. Plenty of kid friendly choices at both.

The idea of sitting at a long table next to complete strangers doesn't sound comfortable

The tables aren't long. They seat like 8 people. Love Biergarten. Totally unimpressed with via Napoli.

We enjoy sitting with another family. The "worst" experience we had there was a family that didn't want to talk at all. I'm guessing it wasn't how they expected it to be. Most of our other visits we've met some really nice people.
