We are going to the left coast today to seek out some ‘authentic Gay 90′s atmosphere‘ at Disneyland’s Red Wagon Restaurant.
Anybody that has crawled over to a food cart, or walked into a quick service location on Disney property knows this price. That is how much it costs guests to grab a bottle of soda or water.
Picture if you will: A ‘sizzling steak’ or ‘juicy chops’ with side items and a drink for a mere $1.65. Considering a modern-day Disney Park restaurant can lighten your wallet by at least $25 for anything sizzling or juicy, the price seems like fantasy. Guests can look to pay at least $44 if they desire sizzling AND juicy (Drinks not included).
It’s not just another Disney magic trick. It’s the Red Wagon Restaurant, circa 1955.
The Red Wagon Restaurant stood in Central Plaza on Main Street, USA. The Red Wagon was a rare gem designed by Lillian Disney. She choose furnishings from the turn-of-the-century, and numerous
knickknacks from the 1890s. At the Red Wagon, guests were treated to hearty meals under a stained glass ceiling. In the early Disney parks tradition of having sponsors for everything, the Red Wagon flew under the banner of the Swift Premium Meat Company.
The name has since changed to the Plaza Inn, and is known for apple and caramel pie and amazing fried chicken. However, now it will set you back a little more than $1.65. Much like the Red Wagon’s sister restaurant, the Crystal Palace, guests enjoy character meals.
Now, if you’d excuse me, I’m going to finish my Monstro.
