July 31, 1960 – The Sunkist Citrus House Shop Opens on Disneyland’s Main Street

“Almost any feature at Disneyland qualifies for Yester-resurrection, whether it’s the Sunkist Citrus House (a defunct beverage stand) or the Casa de Fritos (a corn-chip-themed Mexican restaurant).” – The New York Times

On July 31, 1960, the Sunkist Citrus House opened on the Main Street of Disneyland. It replaced the Puffin Bakery, which closed on June 3, 1960. Hosted by the Sunkist company, the store served fresh-squeezed orange juice, lemonade, lemon meringue pie, and orange cheesecake. It was closed on January 3, 1989, after nearly 30 years of service, and replaced by the Blue Ribbon Bakery.
