August 9, 1955 – The Aunt Jemima Pancake House Opens in Disneyland’s Frontierland


On August 9, 1955, the Aunt Jemima Pancake House restaurant opened in Disneyland’s Frontierland area. This restaurant could be considered one of Disney’s first forays into character dining, as Aunt Jemima would appear to greet guests in the early days of the park. The restaurant closed in early 1962, and has changed many times since then, becoming Aunt Jemima’s Kitchen (operating from July 17 1962 to 1970), Magnolia Tree Terrace (operating from 1970 to 1971), and finally, the River Belle Terrace; however, throughout all these incarnations, pancakes have always remained the staple at this restaurant.
