Souvenir Friday- Red Wagon Inn Luncheon Menu 1960s

Wonderful full size menu from the classic full service restaurant, the Red Wagon Inn located on the Plaza near Tomorrowland. Scene of the 1965 Tencenniel press conference and other events. This restaurant served as the de facto Club 33 for visiting exectuives and other dignitaries. The history of the furnishings on the back page is very interesting. By the way, I am always looking for exterior and interior shots of the mansion that was at 20 St. James Park in Los Angeles.

Wow - I never knew the items were purchased by Walt! Are they the same ones used for the Plaza Inn rehab in the 1965? I need to take better photos of this Victorian recreation next time I'm at the park! Do you still have that Red Wagon Inn poster?

Tanga- I think a lot of the stained glass and architectural details are still in the Plaza Inn. I think the big change was the addition of the central kitchen and service area and the addition of the glass atriums. And I still have the Red Wagon Inn poster.
