Sherman's Food Adventures: Pinocchio's Village Haus (Walt Disney World)

Pinocchio's Village Haus (Walt Disney World)

This was the situation: we were stuck at the Magical Kingdom at Disney World without food.  We briefly considered leaving the park in search of eats, but seeing how we'd either have to take a ferry or monorail just to get the parking lot, it didn't seem like a good idea.  On the other hand, we ended up staying 15+ hours straight at the park which was not a great decision either... Begrudgingly, we made our way to Pinocchio's Village Haus for dinner.

Viv and I decided to share some items stating with the Chicken Caesar Salad.  Unfortunately, despite its good looks, the sliced chicken breast on top was not thawed out properly.  Viv couldn't really even chew through it.  I took it back and they gave me new one with the same issue and with only 2.5 pieces.  When I brought this up, the lady that was helping me declared it was a cold chicken salad.  I realized that, but nowhere did it say it was a semi-thawed chicken salad!  Happiest place on Earth my arse...  Fortunately, another employee decided to just replace the salad with a Meatball Sub and a side of fries  I got to keep the salad which finally thawed out 20 minutes later.  It was alright, but left a bad taste in our mouths literally and figuratively.  The sub was pretty filling with 4 large moist meatballs.  Despite the amount of melted cheese, it was rather bland in need of more tomato sauce.

We also had the Chicken Nuggets and Fries, which I though was pretty decent.  The fries were the typical generic version but the nuggets were whole chunks of moist white meat that was breaded and fried really crunchy.  The kids had the very reasonably-priced children's meals for $5.99 which included drink, entree, grapes and yogurt.  My son had the Mac n' Cheese and it was really cheesy, if not lacking in creaminess.  My daughter had the Cheese Flatbread and it was alright.  The crust was crunchy, but a little dry.  In the end, it filled our tummies with very little fanfare.  I guess that is why we didn't get the Disney Dining Plan...  If we were forced to eat this stuff every now and then (there are nicer places too), we would be longing for McD's...

The Good:
- It's convenient
- We got to enjoy A/C

The Bad:
- Typical theme-park food
- Frozen chicken doesn't constitute a cold salad...
