Candy Palace, Gibson Girl Ice Cream Parlor and Penny Arcade to Re-Open May 2 at Disneyland Park

posted on April 25th, 2012 by Erin Glover, Social Media Director, Disneyland Resort


Has your sweet tooth been aching during the refurbishment of Candy Palace and Gibson Girl Ice Cream Parlor on Main Street, U.S.A.? If so, you’ll be glad to know that both of these Disneyland park favorites will re-open on May 2!

At the new, expanded candy kitchen inside Candy Palace, you will be able to watch our talented team of Candy Makers create some of your favorite sweet treats right before your eyes. Gourmet and caramel apples, toffee, fudge and other candy classics will line the shelves of this opulent turn-of-the-century location. Take a look at some of the new, special details guests will find at Candy Palace:

Next door, Gibson Girl Ice Cream Parlor has undergone a transformation to make your ice cream experience easier and more convenient. With more registers and scooping space, you will be able to get your ice cream fix quicker than ever before!

You can get ice cream by the scoop or one of the specialty sundaes, but what I’m most excited about are the new floats added to the menu – in addition to the traditional root beer float, Gibson Girl Ice Cream Parlor will offer Coca-Cola floats and Fanta Orange floats.

And you Penny Arcade fans will be pleased to know that the arcade will also re-open on May 2 alongside Candy Palace and Gibson Girl Ice Cream Parlor.

These are a must visit on any Disneyland trip for me. Very happy to see them reopening. Are there going to be any major menu changes other than noted in the post? Thanks

When the Carnation Café reopens, will it still offer table service for breakfast?

I wish the penny arcade would return to Main Street in the Magic Kingdom.

Will there be any vegan ice cream offered like there is at Disney World? :-)

You can get orange, coke or sprite floats in DCA. Glad to see we’ll be able to in DL. Can’t wait until they’re open.

Oh bummer! My husband and I are going for three days, but our last day will be the 1st of May! Oh well, we will have fun anyway!

David,
The Penny Arcade will be opening the same day as the Candy Palace so you don’t have to worry.

When I visit the Gibson Girl,I always think of the picture of Walt sitting next to the “ice” elephant scupture. Will the scupture remain after the remodel?

Fred from CA on April 27th, 2012 at 12:19 am

Yes, like Elizabeth, I would also like to know if the elephant will still be in the ice cream parlor.

Is there any plans on bringing back the Matterhorn Sundae? My wife & 2 of her friends split one back when they were teenagers and I’ve always wanted to try one.

Will the Blue Ribbon Bakery be reopening or is Gibson Girl expanding into that space?

Fred from CA on May 2nd, 2012 at 12:27 am

D G–
The Blue Ribbon Bakery will not be reopening. If I remember correctly, indoor seating for the Carnation Cafe is expanding into that space.
Incidentally, the Blue Ribbon Bakery was replaced by the Jolly Holiday Bakery Cafe in the former Plaza Pavilion at the end of main Street.
