    Re: A Reminiscence: Welch's Grape Juice In Fantasyland

    I remember the Welch's Grape Juice stand too! I've always loved Welch's Grape Juice, and I remember I used to love hanging out in the Fantasyland Theater, watching Mickey cartoons over and over, and then getting a grape juice bar or a cup. Good stuff!

    Interesting....


    This has jogged a memory for me. I remember drinking grape juice from a purple grape cup, too. It was a heavy-duty plastic, not like the kind of plastic cup you would find at a frat party, but something you could take home with you. I took mine home with me that day and had it for years.

    The thing is...

    I didn't make my first trip to Disneyland until 1995. Perhaps Welch's had a booth at an amusement park or fair closer to my neck of the woods in the 80s. Six Flags Great America? Marine World? I'm thinking State Fair...

    It is certainly possible another park had the similar cup, I definitely had the 'souvenir'/heavy duty bunch of grapes one at Disneyland. I've yet to see a photo of one anywhere, but I remember it clear as day.

    Here's a cherished family photo of my mom and brothers eating Welch's Frozen Grape Juice Bars in Fantasyland; if only they'd taken a photo of the mural, too!

    Re: A Reminiscence: Welch's Grape Juice In Fantasyland

    I remember the juice pops very well - delicious. However, in the later years did it move closer to where Mad Tea Party is now? I could swear I remember a stand in front of Alice in the 70s.

    That Fantasia mural was listed in a merchandise release a few years ago but never got produced. I was seriously bummed. Hope they're still planning on it someday.

    Re: A Reminiscence: Welch's Grape Juice In Fantasyland

    Thanks for bringing back one of my strongest Disneyland memories from my childhood. I LOVED getting a Welch's Grape Juice every time I came to Disneyland as a kid, it was delicious and felt so fancy!! I remember being sad when I found out it was gone, but luckily, I love pineapple juice too (also fancy), so I still have something.

    Somehow, I do remember the juice pops, and I really do love Welch's grape juice. I'd be happy if they came back to the park.
