Bratwurst and “authentic hand-twisted pretzel:”
These pretzels are the best at Disney World (and huge) and the bratwurst is one of the cheaper entrees available in any of the Parks. Pretzel quality can be lower if they’ve been sitting for a while. Ask for a fresh one. Don’t discount Sommerfest just because you don’t “like” sauerkraut. First of all, they’re happy to serve it without sauerkraut. Second, it’s a mild sauerkraut. For example, I don’t like sauerkraut. Even the thought of sauerkraut makes me a little nauseated. But I like Sommerfest’s sauerkraut. Maybe that means I like sauerkraut, I don’t know. Anyway, this is the only place I’ll eat it. For the slightly less adventurous, the frankfurter is basically a hot dog. If you’d like to eat here and you’re uncertain whether junior will oblige you, you might just sit him down away from the menu and tell him that you’ll bring him a hot dog. I also like the fact that on the Disney Dining Plan you can order the pretzel as your “dessert.” And because there’s no “kid’s menu,” you’ll have no problem ordering the kids the full-size entree. Overall, I really enjoy Sommerfest and it’s an excellent choice for a quick, relatively inexpensive meal.
Sommerfest has a limited number of covered tables near the cash registers as pictured in the first image above. It’s not a particularly popular place, so the number of tables is usually adequate.
You’ll need to ask for the spicy mustard. For whatever reason, they don’t put it out.
