For years guests have have shortened the name of “Min and Bill’s Dockside Diner”, the counter service dining location at Hollywood Studios, to just “Dockside Diner” when referring to the establishment. It now appears that Disney is following suit. The name has officially been shortened and can be seen already on Disney’s website.
It looks like only the name will change and “Dockside Diner” will continue to serve up specialty foot-long hot dogs, pulled pork sliders and tasty vegetarian fare. Dockside Diner can be found inside of the “tramp steamer” situated on Echo Lake.
Min and Bill refer to the 1930’s comedy-drama film starring Marie Dressler and Wallace Beery. It 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. Marie Dressler won the Academy Award for Best Actress in 1931 for her performance in this film.
