Disney Village icon Annette’s Diner closed for refurbishment until 6th April

Tuesday, 20th March 2012 at 11:15

For almost 20 years, Annette’s Diner has been inviting all of Europe into that most quintessential of dining experiences from across the Atlantic: the American diner. Now, just shy of its own 20th birthday, Annette has hung up her rollerskates for a well-earned rest — and refurbishment. The iconic diner at the entrance to Disney Village closed on 13th March for a refurbishment that will last through until 6th April 2012. In the meantime, hungry burger hunters are pointed to La Grange at Billy Bob’s Country Western Saloon or The Steakhouse, where a special €19.99 beef burger menu is available.

A temporary closure of this popular restaurant has been expected since last July, when Disney took back full control of Annette’s and a few other Disney Village restaurants whose operation had previously been outsourced to a company named Groupe Flo. Back in October, New York Style Sandwiches closed for a similar three-week refurbishment. While the move back to in-house operation is expected to lead to efficiencies and cost savings for Disney, it will be interesting to see if it also leads to genuine improvements in quality and service.

  • *awww* I Love this place. Eating there is a highlight of every Visit. I hope, they didn’t change to much – this place had lost enough ambient at the last refurbish with the add of the 2. floor

    Totally love eating here. Will be trying the new ” mega burger ” when we arrive there in may.
    Just hope they don’t change too much.

  • Loved Annettes when it first opened, but once the 2nd floor was added and extra seating crammed into the groundfloor area, the service went downhill. However if Disney has taken back control, I will venture in again with the hope quality of food and great service returns. Usued to enjoy watching the waiters dancing “Grease Lightning”
