It was a nice restaurant, before it became the annual passport processing center, then some cookies for kids place, or something. Remember it? I forget what they served, though...but it was a little cheaper than the Plaza Inn.
Plaza Pavilion (Extinct). The Plaza Pavilion is the other buffeteria at the end of Main Street, specializing in pastas. Unfortunately, it's often not open for business unless it's a very busy day. In fact, the odds are good that the Pavilion might never reopen its doors. Sponsored by Contadina. Location
Sitting between Main Street and Adventureland, the Pavilion building and kitchen is actually much larger than you would think. The Tahitian Terrace/Aladdin's Oasis, as well as the Tiki Room show building, all share a common roof with the Pavilion - have a look at that roof sometime to see how the Main Street theming segues into the Adventureland theming.

I think the last time I ate there was in 1991 - and I had spaghetti for dinner. I miss that place.........certainly there could be another venue for 'cookie' making, don't you think? Like, go home and make cookies...I mean, who really thinks "Say, I'll go to Disneyland today so my kids can make some cookies".......Reopen the restaurant. That's what I say.
Are they still having staffing problems? Maybe that's why they haven't reopened it, because I don't think it's because they have too many restaurants. The waits are way too long.
It seems to me that I read they had torn out the kitchen area so it is unable to be opened again. They certainly do need more places to eat in DL. The lines are usually so long in the places that are open.
anyone have pictures of what plaza pavillion used to look like on the inside???
Went to a party the other night
All the ladies were treating me right
Moving my feet to the disco beat
How in the world could I keep my seat
All of a sudden I began to change
I was on the dance floor acting strange
Flapping my arms I began to cluck
Look at me..I'm the disco duck
my kids did the cookie making and loved it. yes, we make cookies at home but it was different being chefs and working with the CM. The experience they got that day was wonderful. Another Disneyland magic for them. The cookie making isn't in the whole area. just a small part of it. THe rest of the place is open to diners.
