    Question Revive FARRELL'S ICE CREAM in DCA

    Hey Micechat Members,
    Last year their were 6 pages about bringing a Farrell's Ice Cream Parlour to DCA or the Resort area. Back then, we weren't in a position to do that but today we are. Farrell's is opening in late August '09 at The Shops at Mission Viejo but we want to know if there is still interest in Farrell's at the Disney Resorts? Let us know and be sure to check out our Micechat page FARRELLSisBACK.
    We think FARRELL's is a natural for Disney. How about you?

    Re: Revive FARRELL'S ICE CREAM in DCA

    I think Farrell's would be PERFECT for the resort! Having a Farrell's in DCA would be absolutely fantastic.

    Now, how are you going to make that happen? And how can we help???!

    I voted for CityWalk because I live closer to Universal.

    Re: Revive FARRELL'S ICE CREAM in DCA

    Man, I miss Farrell's so much. There was one in the city I grew up in, and it was always a treat to go there. I loved the volcano thing they would bring out with the drum and all that, talk about good times.

    Re: BRING FARRELL'S TO DCA or RESORTS!

    Sure, I wouldn't mind an ice cream parlour restaurant... but where would it go? It wouldn't be historically accurate to place it in 1920's Los Angeles, since the first one opened in Portland Oregon in 1963.


    I guess I'd vote Paradise Pier since it'd just be nice to get a nice sundae in that environment.

    Re: Revive FARRELL'S ICE CREAM in DCA

    Alas, Disney's Ice Cream rights are own by Nestle, and why you find Haagen-Dazs at Downtown Disney. (Haagen-Dazs is part of Dreyer's, which also owns Edy's, and is owned by Nestle)

    So NO chance for Farrell's on Disney Property.

    Now, there are nearby locations, such as the Anaheim GardenWalk, but Marble Slab Creamery might have a clause in its lease that won't let another Ice Cream Company to locate there.

    I think your best bet would to be to buy out Tilly's on Katella. It isn't that highly rated, and already is an Ice Cream Shop/Restaurant.

    Re: Revive FARRELL'S ICE CREAM in DCA

    I used to work at the one in Whittier and went to the one in Cerritos many times. I think it would be great in Downtown Disney or at GardenWalk. It would be a fun place to be able to go to again. They tried too hard before to change what it was - trying to make more money from food instead of ice cream and wanting it to be a restaurant instead of an ice cream parlor, which it was known for. Part of that may have been to do with Marriott owning it at the time, and too much corporate involvement (where else have we seen that before?)
    I hope it comes back strong!

    Columbus sailed the ocean blue,
    What did he feed his hungry crew?
    A fabulous, fantastic, Farrell's Zoo!

    I don't think it would fit anywhere in the resort itself, but it might be a nice fit in Downtown Disney or Gardenwalk.

    Thanks!

    I cropped and shrunk the image and hosted it to photobucket for you so everyone could see the image.

    I added it to your post above as well.

    Just remember us when you open a store near Disneyland. We want to be the first to have a big party!
