    Wow! Look at those kids’ menu selections! Lamb chops with mint jelly? Sole? If ONLY today’s menus featured these kinds of real foods for kids!

  2. Prof. Brainard says

    Haha! I love these old menus from the parks! I was also thinking the same thing as JennM regarding the choices. Of course, in the 1950s, most parents followed a policy of “kids eat what they’re told, or they don’t eat.” I suppose it seems draconian to the current indulgent parenting mindset, but I’m grateful now for it. It meant I tried many different foods and that I learned to like most of them.

    JennB and Prof. Brainard — I always love looking at the old menus — not only for prices but also to see the differences between “kid foods” then and now! I always remember having liver and onions as one of our cafeteria meals in kindergarten…I doubt that would happen today!

  4. Prof. Brainard says

    LOL! Nothing builds character in an 6-year-old like facing down a steaming plate of liver and onions!

  5. William Wells says

    Have you ever had a Eggs Benidict Throwdown or Crawl? lot of Resorts make them but different at each one. WildernessLodge, Grand Floridian, The Contempory and Polynesian.
    I love Egg Benidict but at Wlat Disney World they make them different than at Steakhouse 55 in Disneyland.
