Food Fridays: Maxwell House

Long before coffee became the domain of hipsters and expensive drink chains, it was just an afterthought, served at breakfast and often came with free refills. At DISNEYLAND’s town square, Maxwell House provided a place for guests to enjoy breakfast and a cup of coffee with the hope that they would return to Iowa and start buying Maxwell House instead of Folgers.

Walt Wednesdays: The Plaza Inn

One of Walt Disney’s most favorite places to eat in DISNEYLAND was the Plaza Inn. Though he passed away not long after it opened, the restaurant quickly became one of his most favorite stops in the park. It even became an unofficial headquarters of DISNEYLAND’s grand Tencennial celebration in 1965.

The restaurant remains open to this day, still serving thousands of DISNEYLAND guests each and every day.

Toontown Tuesdays: Gideon

The villainous Gideon from Pinocchio doesn’t speak in the film, but Walt Disney had originally hired an actor to provide a voice for him- the legendary Mel Blanc. In the end, Walt Disney cut Gideon’s vocal scenes from the film because he felt that they made him sound like a drunkard. In the end, only a hiccup provided by Mel Blanc remained in the film.

Music Mondays: DISNEYLAND Records Release #14-

Walt Disney presents Folk Songs From The Far Corners was another more experimental release from the label, produced by DISNEYLAND Records’ in-house legendary producer Tutti Camarata. Camarata was given free reign with many of the labels’ second tier releases because Walt Disney wanted to gauge what his family audience might be interested in. This album would actually be quite successful, spawning other folk song releases.
