Burgers and hot dogs in a setting inspired by Walt Disney's classic "Pinocchio".

One of the few places that served hamburgers on the parks opening day, Au Chalet de la Marionnette has always been one of the most popular eateries in the park. Situated between Fantasyland and Adventureland the corner of the restaurant close to the latter appears to have been furnished from the remains from the Swiss Family Robinson's shipwreck.

The main restaurant seating area is decorated with murals representing scenes from the classic animated feature "Pinocchio", which is also portrayed in several lattice style wooded panels. The counter area is filled with geranium filled window boxes making the area feel reminiscent of a pretty courtyard.

Standard food fair includes the aforementioned hamburgers and is completed with hot dogs and roast chicken.

Guests travelling with fussy children or unadventurous eaters can't go far wrong the mainly uninspiring menu that offers few surprises, but as always offers a wide enough selection to include a few interesting bites.

Tips

Although Le Chalet de la Marionette has only one main-entrance in Fantasyland, it has some exits leading right into Adventureland. So why don't you head to Pirates of the Caribbean or explore Adventure Isle after your meal?

Specials

Le Chalet de la Marionette is a recreation of a Disneyland (California) eatery called Village Haus Restaurant, which was added during the Fantasyland re-modeling in the mid-1980's.

However, the Imagineers forgot to add "Exit"-signs during the planing stage of this restaurant. When they noticed their mistake, it was too late: a necessary sign couldn't be placed above the center of the main exit and had to be placed off center. This however - the Imagineers though - looked a little bit odd. More to the point: it actually looked like someone had forgotten to add those signs during the planning stage.

But they know how to solve this situation: they painted Figaro with a rope in his paws right next to the exit so that it appeared like the little cat was holding the sign.

When the Imagineers planned to recreate the Village Haus at Disneyland Paris, they were more carefully. But to acknowledge their mistake (and to show everyone that they had learned) they painted Figaro again next to the main exit. But now he has a much more satisfied look, because the exit-sign is placed finally where it should be.
