I was just on another board reading a review of the Biergarten. My MIL is from Germany so I’ve been introduced to German food and I love it. So one of our fave restaurants in WDW is the Biergarten. Now communal seating isn’t really one of my favorite things - making small talk with strangers while stuffing my face :happy:, but we’ve usually had pleasant experiences. However, during our December trip it was odd.
We are a family of 3 and were seated with a family of 5. So there are 4 seats on one side of the table and 4 on the other. We were all seated at the same time, but the other family reached the table 1st. So grampa sat on one side by himself while the other 4 family members filed in on the other side, so that left DH, DD and I to sit on the same side of the table as each other directly across from this other family! So basically DD and I were sharing a 4-some table with a little 2 yr old and her dad.
I thought this was so weird and very umcomfortable! In order to talk to DH I had to talk over DD’s head. To make matters worse they didn’t say a word to us or each other for that matter! I felt like I need to reach over and cut the little girl’s food for her cuz her mom was 3 people down from her, but I was right across from her.
Is it just me, or do you think that was weird?!!
