In September 2005 the restaurant's menu was changed from a "burger and fry" menu to an Italian based menu [2]. In 2012 the menu was once again changed as flatbread was added. Outside of menu changes Pinocchio Village Haus has not seen any major changes [3].

In 2017, Disney began offering mobile ordering at the Pinocchio Village Haus [4].

Description

Stromboli Room

The largest of the dining rooms, the Stromboli Room is themed to look as if it is located outdoors. The Stromboli Room is also themed like a puppet theater. Behind the ordering kiosks, guests can see marionettes hanging in the windows. If guests look up in the Stromboli Room they can find a small balcony with a few tables on it. This balcony represents the catwalk that puppeteers would use when putting on the show. This balcony also allows guests to access the restaurant's outdoor balcony. The Stromboli Room features a large fresco advertising "Stromboli presents Pinocchio the stringless puppet".

Cleo Room

The Cleo Room does not feature frescoes like the other rooms in the Village Haus. Instead, the walls are lined with blue stain glassed windows which give the room a watery feel. Each window features Cleo, allowing guests to follow the fish around the room. Inside the Cleo Room guests can also find numerous cuckoo clocks made by Geppetto.

Figaro Room

The Figaro Room is a dining room located on the Village Haus' first floor. Here guests can see fresco's depicting Figaro the cat and Pinocchio. The Figaro room also has tables which allow guests to look out into the rest of Fantasyland.

Monstro Room

The Monstro room is a large dining room located on the Village Haus' first floor. Besides featuring a fresco of Monstro the whale, guests can also get tables which overlook the loading area for it's a small world here.

The Blue Fairy Room

The Blue Fairy Room is the only room in the restaurant where guests can sit before they get their food (this policy is usually only in effect during busy times). Like the other rooms, the Blue Fairy Room also features numerous frescoes.

Geppetto Room

The Geppetto Room is a small room which features various frescoes of Pinocchio and Geppetto.

Jiminy Cricket Room

The Jiminy Cricket room features various frescoes which depict Pinocchio's interactions with Jiminy.

Fun Facts and Trivia

  • A wood carving depicting Honest John, Gideon and Pinocchio can be found inside the Village Haus [5].
  • On the fresco depicting Pinocchio performing the song "I've Got No Strings on Me" the caption reads "Hi-Ho the merri-o there are no strings on me". Oddly enough, the words "there are no strings on me" never appears in the song. The lyrics depicted in the mural are incorrect [6].
