Disney’s Magic Kingdom is overflowing with dining options. With this in mind, it’s helpful to have an idea of which restaurants are worth your time, and which ones…aren’t.

Pinocchio Village Haus is a popular option for many families, for good reason. But is it the right option for you and your family? This post takes an in depth look at Pinocchio Village Haus to help you decide whether you want to put this restaurant on your Magic Kingdom itinerary.

As usual, I have some gluten free commentary sprinkled in here along with the regular food review. Kind of hard to avoid it when the author has to eat gluten free!

Pinocchio Village Haus Overview

Location and Theming

Situated in Fantasyland at Walt Disney World’s Magic Kingdom, Pinocchio Village Haus is a counter-service restaurant that takes guests into the world of the classic tale, Pinocchio.

Counter service restaurants are commonly referred to as Quick Service in the wonderful world of Disney jargon. What this essentially means is that it’s Disney’s equivalent to fast food.

But trust me, the food can be much better than traditional fast food.

The quick service dining experience at Pinocchio Village Haus means you order your food at a counter (or via mobile ordering), pick it up, and find yourself a seat.

Pinocchio Village Haus is conveniently located just beyond the Prince Charming Regal Carrousel. This borders both the classic Fantasyland and New Fantasyland areas.

As I’m sure you could figure out from the name, Pinocchio Village Haus is themed after the adventures of Pinocchio. With that in mind, there is an Italian cottage feel to the building’s exterior and interior. It is well done, providing some visual interest while you’re enjoying your meal.

The building itself fits in really well with the overall aesthetic of this section of Fantasyland.

My favorite part were the murals located all around the restaurant. Each of these murals depicts different scenes from the story. They also add some necessary color to the otherwise neutral colored atmosphere.

Dining Hours and Seating Options

Pinocchio Village Haus offers lunch and dinner service, making it a convenient choice for those looking for a quick bite or a more relaxed meal between park attractions. There are no breakfast options.

Pinocchio Village Haus hours are from 10:30a until 9p. This could vary based on the day and the overall park hours, so make sure you double check on the day of your trip.

In terms of seating, the restaurant features both indoor and outdoor areas. One of the highlights includes a quaint seating area that overlooks part of “it’s a small world”. This is certainly a unique feature and is probably the most popular section to sit in.

The outdoor seating area is a good size overall, providing a good number of tables and chairs. Each table has an umbrella over it to help provide shade, which is 100% necessary.

Aside from the umbrella, there isn’t any other coverage on the patio, so this won’t work on rainy, chilly, or brutally hot days.

The interior seating area is quite large, though not as large as Cosmic Ray’s Starlight Café. That aside, there’s still plenty of seating options throughout the restaurant.

There is also a small second floor seating area which overlooks the first floor. It’s quiet up here, but seating is limited. Most of the tables are 2 person tables, with only one 4 person table.

Disney Dining Plan and Mobile Ordering at Pinocchio Village Haus

The restaurant participates in the Disney Dining Plan as a one-credit Quick Service restaurant for both lunch and dinner. If you are considering going this route, make sure to read all about the Disney Dining Plan so you can determine if it’s the right call for your family.

There are also menu items that qualify as a snack credit with the Disney Dining Plan.

Disney’s Mobile Order Process

Pinocchio Village Haus is one of the many Quick Service dining options at Disney World that offer mobile ordering. Because of this, I HIGHLY recommend that you use Disney’s mobile ordering system if you choose to eat at Pinocchio Village Haus.

Quite simply mobile ordering is all about convenience. It allows you to order all of your food ahead of time and have it made fresh when you arrive at the restaurant.

This saves you from having to wait in line to place your order, then wait for the food to be prepared. The mobile ordering system is just a quick hack that I highly recommend everyone use.

It is important to note that there is a separate restaurant entrance to go into for mobile orders. This allows you to bypass the line that forms for people ordering in person.

This is all clearly marked on the outside entrance, but if you have any questions, there are Cast Members outside to direct you to the right spot.

Cost and Value of Pinocchio Village Haus

Prices range from $12.30 and under, making the menu reasonably affordable. The flatbreads come in around $12.30, with salads even cheaper.

The kids’ menu items are $8.49 and under.

In addition to that, the amount of food you get feels substantial and in line with the overall price of the meal. Because of this, I consider Pinocchio Village Haus to be an overall good value at Magic Kingdom.

Keep in mind, Disney does get a little trigger happy with raising their prices, so they can change at any time. However, compared to other options and value, Pinocchio Village Haus is still a winner.

Pinocchio Village Haus Menu Offerings

Not surprisingly, the type of food offered at Pinocchio Village Haus is “Italian” themed in the form of pizza/flatbreads. There are options for people who don’t want flatbreads, but not many.


At Pinocchio Village Haus, the star of the show are the flatbread pizzas.

  • Gourmet Cheese Flatbread: Flatbread topped with Tomato Sauce and our Gourmet blend of Mozzarella, Provolone, and Parmesan

  • Gourmet Cheese Flatbread
  • Pepperoni Flatbread
  • Chicken Strips and Fries
  • PB&J Uncrustable

Pinocchio Village Haus Gluten Free Menu

For guests with dietary restrictions, there is an allergy friendly menu to choose from. This comes in handy for me since I can’t eat gluten.

As usual, I always want to include the gluten free information for my fellow GF eaters! Luckily for us, Pinocchio Village Haus has some good gluten free options.

All of the flatbreads can be made gluten free. Instead of a rectangular flatbread, you are served a traditionally round gluten free pizza.

Because of this, all of the flatbread menu options are open to you. And isn’t that great news!

Pinocchio Village Haus also serves gluten free chicken nuggets and french fries. There is a dedicated fryer to help with cross contamination.

Pinocchio Village Haus Review

Now that we’ve taken a look at the overall basics, it’s time to take a look at our opinions and whether or not I view this as a worthwhile dining option at Magic Kingdom.

Atmosphere and Theming

At Pinocchio Village Haus, we found ourselves immersed in a charming, storybook atmosphere. As I mentioned above, the restaurant is themed after the beloved Disney classic, “Pinocchio”.

The architecture and decor truly transport you to the quaint village featured in the movie. It has a Bavarian-esque feel to it, though Pinocchio takes place in Italy. Either way, the word “quaint” is definitely appropriate.

The theming extends to the various dining rooms, each showcasing different scenes and characters from the story. Stained glass windows, wood paneling, and whimsical murals provide a warm and cozy ambiance.

The restaurant offers a nice break from the bustling theme park outside and allows you to enjoy your meal in a warm setting. Maybe we were just lucky, but it felt pretty calm and quiet in there while we ate our meal.

This enhances this feeling of escaping the hustle and bustle right outside the front doors. And there is A LOT of hustle and bustle in this part of Fantasyland.

I love that even though this is “just” a quick service restaurant, there was still a lot of effort put into the theme and making it all cohesive.

Of course, as with the vast majority of restaurants at Disney World, there is a family friendly atmosphere at Pinocchio Village Haus. I think this is enhanced by the brightly color murals around the restaurant. They really are bright, cheerful, and eye catching, giving the kids something to look at and enjoy.

Seating Options

One of the notable aspects of Pinocchio Village Haus is the variety of seating options available. There’s something for everyone, whether you prefer to dine indoors or want to take advantage of the Florida sunshine.

The indoor seating areas are divided into multiple rooms, each with their own unique design and artwork inspired by scenes from the movie. This allows for a quieter dining experience, as the rooms help to disperse the noise of the other guests.

The area overlooking the iconic “it’s a small world” attraction is a great feature. I love that the Imagineers thinks of details like this.

Because of the uniqueness, and the small size of the area, this section was completely full when we ate here. That’s why I have no pictures of it. I don’t want to be a creeper and take pictures of strangers while they eat if I can avoid it!.

It’s also kind of tucked off into the side, so I bet a lot of people don’t even realize it’s there.

If you go to Pinocchio Village Haus, I suggest makin a bee-line here first to see if there’s a table available. You might get lucky! I would also suggest checking out the seating options on the balcony area above to see if they are open. Again, this helps to separate you from the crowds and gives you a unique vantage point.

It is a bummer that the seating options are so limited here, but if your party can fit, it’s a nice space to sit.

On nice days, it is a great option to sit outside as well. However, a lot of the time I would probably choose to eat indoors, especially when it’s hot. Having a chance to sit and cool off in the air conditioning can be priceless.

But no matter where you choose to sit, it should be relatively easy to find a spot. Unless you happen to be there at peak meal time during the busiest days of the year.

In summary, Pinocchio Village Haus offers a pleasant dining experience with fun theming and a range of seating options.


Yeah, yeah, Nicole, we get it, you like the atmosphere. But what about the food?

Listen, this is Magic Kingdom’s equivalent of fast food, so the food isn’t exactly going to be gourmet. That being said, my whole family enjoyed their meal.

Yes, the menu is a bit limiting. In fact, if you don’t want pizza, don’t come here. Magic Kingdom has some other good quick service options to choose from if you’re craving something else.

But if you do want pizza, this is a pretty darn good option. You definitely aren’t going to have the best pizza of your life, but it’s tasty and hits the spot.

My husband had the All-Meat Flatbread as he is a straight up carnivore. The size of the flatbread is pretty generous, enough food for one person.

In fact, depending on your appetite, it could be a little too much food. Doug enjoyed the meal for what it was and was full by the end of it.

His overall thought is that it was a fine pizza, not amazing or the best pizza ever, but a good theme park pizza.

If I were to split hairs, which I will since that’s literally what I’m here for, I would say they could do a better job of disbursing the meat along the flatbread.

I like how generous they are with the toppings, they just happen to all be clumped together towards the middle. But that really is splitting hairs.

Of course, I had a gluten free variety. I chose the gluten free Margherita pizza and I will say I was pleasantly surprised with just how much I enjoyed it.

For starters, this is a good size pizza. Waaaaay more food than one person should eat in a sitting. However, that didn’t stop me from doing just that!

I would say that is actually the only downside to this pizza. Because it’s so large, it feels a bit wasteful not to eat as much of it as humanly possible. So odds are good you’ll give it the old college try. I left this meal completely and thoroughly stuffed.

If you have a couple of people in your group who eat gluten free, I suggest splitting this pizza.

I have to say, this gluten free crust was quite good. I’ve had some dreadful gluten free pizza crusts, but this is not one of them. So between that and the generous Margherita toppings I had a truly enjoyable gluten free meal.

My pizza was super cheesy, which is exactly how I like pizza, so I was a happy camper.

Gluten Free Margherita Pizza

Both of my kids opted for the Gourmet Cheese Flatbread. For the kids’ meal size, they get half of the entrée sized flatbread pizza. If you have a child with a larger appetite, this might not be enough food.

However, since it also comes with their choice of 2 sides, that does help make it more filling. My kids don’t have enormous appetites, so this was the perfect amount of food for them.

Both of them really enjoyed the flatbread, though to be fair I don’t think they’ve ever met a pizza that they didn’t like. My daughter loves mandarin oranges so she always chooses that for both of her sides.

The fries are the standard skinny Disney fries that you get at every single quick service restaurant. This is a knock as far as I’m concerned as they aren’t my favorite, but my son certainly didn’t care.

I do love that Disney gives the kids the flexibility to do that if they want to.

Tips for Visiting Pinocchio Village Haus

Best Time to Visit

If you’re looking to enjoy a meal at Pinocchio Village Haus, we recommend visiting during non-peak hours, such as early lunch or late afternoon. By doing so, you’re more likely to find better seating, like the section overlooking the “it’s a small world” attraction.

This also means you’ll be able to get your food faster and have a quieter dining experience.

Seriously, Use Mobile Ordering

This tip isn’t just for eating at Pinocchio Village Haus, it’s for all quick service restaurants that offer it. I cannot stress enough how much better and easier it is to use mobile ordering.

On top of that, schedule your meals ahead of time. If you know you plan to eat lunch at Pinocchio Village Haus, place the order at some point in the morning.

This gives you the most flexibility in choosing the time range you want your food to be prepared. I have been in situations where I waited too long and the times I wanted weren’t available, making me wait longer to eat. Granted, this was on a very crowded day, but still.

As soon as your order window opens, go into the app and click the button to have them prepare your meal. I’ll usually do this as we’re walking towards the restaurant since it will take them a little bit of time to get the food ready.

If your meal includes an allergy friendly order (like ours) it usually takes a bit longer to prepare, so don’t hesitate to press the button even if you aren’t at the restaurant yet.
