    Vintage Disneyland Hotel Room Service Menu

    Found amongst some paper goods/ephemera in my home, and it is a good little find, so wanted to share....

    Unfortunately, this isn't labeled with a date in any way, but looks like potentially the 1970's to me.

    Here's the cover, with Goofy looking a little more "scatterbrained" then they depict him these days:

    The breakfast page:


    Available all day/lunch:


    And dinner:


    Last but not least, the back cover, extolling the virtues of the Spirits and Gourmet Shop:


    I don't know about you, but I'd go in for Disneyland Hotel Epicurean Delight, Purecrest Sharp Cheddar Crock and crackers, and a Chocolate Square a la mode!

    Hope this brings back memories for some, and enjoyment to the rest...a fun little bit of ephemera. And remember, dial 1313!

    I'm guessing '75-77 time frame, because of the red,white and blue them. 1976 was the bicentenial of our country so I bet its from then.

    Wonderful find! That is really amazing!

    That's delightful! Thank you for sharing with us!

    The prevalence of "chicken livers" makes it seem really old. It's kind of fun to see how prices haven't changed evenly across the board. The site I rely on for my menus has spotty room service information but some of the items (at least as of October 2009) were very similar but had new prices! The Continental admittedly has 2 pastries now, instead of one English muffin or roll, but now it's $12.99 versus $2.99. The "Seven Onion" soup is now $9.59, while a bowl of "Onion Soup" used to be 75 cents...was the soup THAT bad back then?

    I think I'd get a Combination sandwich without cole slaw, with some Onion Soup and definitely a slice of 85 cent "Cheese Cake" for dessert. Wouldn't even need to break a $5 except for tax and tip....

    Oh I'd get the lobster thermidor. In fact, at $6.95 I think I'd get about 3 of them!

    Very rad! Now I'm hungry :S
    All this has happened before, and it will all happen again. But this time it happened in London. It happened on a quiet street in Bloomsbury. That corner house over there is the home of the Darling family. And Peter Pan chose this particular house because there were people here who believed in him.

    The thing that I glean the most from this menu is the variety of food and services that used to be........I mean all of that food and room service was available until 11:00pm!!!!!! Ahhh......the good 'ole days.

    I loved eating at El Vaquero. It was a great steak place. They showed your choices of cuts and you'd choose. It was a fun way to order. Ate there about three times, then it was gone.

    It's nice to know that people back then probably looked at the prices and thought.."Crap..that's expensive!"

    Actually, no, we didn't. As someone who stayed at the DLH frequently from the early 70's on, the room service at the time was reasonably priced for what it was. And what it was, was top quality -- as was everything at DLH in those days. (Disneyland too, for that matter.)

    The feeling of "sticker shock" at the prices of DLH room service and restaurants didn't start until after Disney took over the DLH from Wrather Corp.

    Great fun, thank you! And, I'll have what you're having. Just eating something that has the words "epicurean" and "ground beef" stated in such close proximity to each other, needs to be experienced. Maybe it was the "Chef's Garni" that pushed it into epicurean territory.

    I was struck by the pricing in the opposite way than some here. The Pan Fried Chicken dinner at $6.55, seemed a pretty comparable value, to the Plaza Inn Specialty Chicken at $13.49 today. The non-dinner items were a bargain, for sure, though.
