“Greetings from Carnation in Disneyland!”
On July 17, 1955, the Carnation Ice Cream Parlor opened on Disneyland’s Main Street U.S.A. It is one of the only restaurants remaining from Disneyland’s opening day. In 1977, an outdoor dining area was added to the restaurant, and in 1997, the restaurant was expanded and turned into the Carnation Café, serving American-style cuisine for breakfast, lunch, and dinner.
