Great work, folks!  A very worthy list to follow yourself or recommend to a friend!


In the past year or so, rumors have swirled that the Echo Lake area of the Studios is not long for Disney’s world.

It’s easy to believe, isn’t it?  After all, it seems like most of Hollywood is about to go under renovation.  When it comes to Min & Bill’s Dockside Diner, therefore, it’s likely that they, too, would get their “pink slip”.

An “open-air ‘tramp steamer’ eatery that pays homage to the 1931 comedy hit, Min & Bill”, it’s a quaint little Quick Service with, what looks like, a tasty little menu.

Bit of trivia, here … the movie upon which this spot is based “tells the story of dockside innkeeper Min’s tribulations as she tries to protect the innocence of her adopted daughter Nancy, all while loving and fighting with boozy fisherman Bill, who resides at the inn”.

Interesting!  It even garnered the Academy Award for Best Actress!  Way to go, Min!  Let’s take a look at your restaurant, shall we?!





Of course, the “star” of any Hollywood dining hang-out is the food, right?  The morning we passed by, Min and Bill were in the midst of dishing up a standard Disney breakfast …


For us, however, we were more enticed by Min’s lunch and dinner menu …


Before we head out for the day, tell me … what would you order?  I think I’d go very basic and select the Foot-long “Chili” Hot Dog.  The platters seem to be pretty generous, though, don’t they?

Have a great day, my friends!  Happy Saturday!
