This holiday season marks the last holiday season for Disneyland’s Blue Ribbon Bakery. Located on Main St. USA for the past almost 22 years, Blue Ribbon Bakery made its Disneyland debut on April 6, 1990 when it replaced the Sunkist Citrus House (fresh squeezed orange juice or lemonade anyone?).
Known for its staple Disneyland treats like Cinnamon Rolls, Matterhorn Macaroons, seasonal goodies, and a good ol’ cup of coffee, tea, hot chocolate or cider, Blue Ribbon Bakery was the perfect go to stop for a quick snack or pick me up upon entering the park.
In honor of Blue Ribbon’s awesomeness, I feel like we should pay homage to its last holiday season. Here are some treats that were offered this year, along with a fun video depicting the bakery!
Blue Ribbon Bakery is shutting its doors for good today, and although it will be missed, exciting new things are on the horizon for its location. The bakery will be used to provide an expansion for The Carnation Cafe. The bakery will become indoor seating for the restaurant, which will be undergoing a complete remodel, also starting this week.
Worried about where you will get your baked goods fix? Don’t. The Jolly Holiday Bakery grand opening is on Saturday, and it’s sure to be supercalifragilisticexpialidocious. On the menu will be sandwiches, salads, soups, and baked goods! We’ll have a review of it very soon… .
Were you able to get in one last visit to Blue Ribbon Bakery? My go to item there was always the “seasonal” muffin. What was yours?
*Thanks to This Day in Disney History, I was able to find the opening date of Blue Ribbon Bakery!
