In one of the stranger occurrences in dining of the last few years, the Pinocchio Village Haus counter service restaurant at the Magic Kingdom is set to start a buffet-style dinner service soon. Similar to the Be Our Guest Restaurant, the establishment will be a counter service dining experience during the day and a table service one at night.
According to cast members at the restaurant, guests will find offerings in a buffet style dinner at “Gepetto’s Village Haus Buffet”, priced at $22 per adult, $12 per child. The lineup should include “Italian food” offerings such as multiple salads, baked ziti, meatballs, pasta alfredo, chicken parmesan, flatbreads, breadsticks, cannolis, and Italian cakes.
Reservations should open soon. The start date has not been disclosed yet.
This wouldn’t be the first buffet offered in the restaurant as a breakfast buffet is offered during the Morning Magic events at the Magic Kingdom. While Village Haus isn’t exactly known for quality meals, it should be interesting to see how this one turns out.
