Evening at Disneyland's Plaza Inn

From a 1960's promotional piece for the expansion of Disneyland: The Plaza Inn is an under appreciated restaurant on Main Street U.S.A. The Imagineering concept art is an expression of Walt Disney's desire to give park guests more than they bargained for. A smart business plan to keep them coming back!

The decor is subdued but elegant. The food is very good by theme park standards, and the place has a fairly loyal clientele. In the Summer, it's a quiet refuge from the crowds outside, and in the slower months, it's overlooked in place of the park's splashier dining establishments. Either way, the place is worth investigating!
