Good morning! This day in Disney history, August 19th, 1955: The first Casa De Fritos opens in Disneyland!

Just months after Disneyland opened in 1955, Frito-Lay founder Elmer Doolin convinced Walt Disney to let him open Casa de Fritos, a Mexican restaurant, in Frontierland. The food was straightforward Tex-Mex—a combo plate, tamales, chile, Frito pie, enchiladas and the "Ta-Cup," the standard fast-food taco about to colonize America but in a Fritos shell, the ancestor of the modern-day taco salad. Fritos came complimentary with every purchase.

It's first location was on New Orleans Street, near Aunt Jemima's Pancake House. The Casa de Fritos quickly outgrew this space and was replaced by Don DeFero's Silver Banjo Barbecue:

In 1957 it was relocated to a larger location, an adobe building built next to the Mine Train Through Natures Wonderland. in 1983 the space became Casa Mexicana Restaurant sponsored by Lawry's, the manufacturer of "the official seasonings and sauces of Disneyland". Today, this restaurant is known as Rancho Del Zocalo.

Did you know? “El Zocalo” means “the square” which, in the Southwest and Mexico as far back as the Aztecs, was the center of town or marketplace. I didn't ::shrug:: Thanks Daveland!

The neatest part of Casa de Fritios, in my opinion, was the Frito Kid! He was Fritos' mascot from 1952 through '67. His setup stood just inside the front door of the restaurant.
Hungry for a salty snack? Insert 5 cents into the slot cash box on the fence and the Frito Kid came to life. While rolling his eyes, licking his lips, and turning his head, his recorded voice would holler back to his unseen partner Klondike inside the mountain to send down some more of those “golden chips of corn,” and then a wax-paper bag of delicious Fritos Corn Chips would slide down the chute. To see how it would have worked, click on this link then click on the "insert coin" on the bottom left. ::giggles::πŸ˜„πŸ˜‹ http://angryjim.com/fritokid  (this only works in the web version unfortunately, but be sure to refresh the page a few times, he says different things.)
Man I wish I would have had the chance to see him in person, so cute!

Another tidbit I actually learned from Dave, you know that walkway from Zocalo to The Princess Fantasy Faire where the restrooms are now? It was previously backstage until they created a pathway for guests in the late 90s. I love that walkway!

I found 10 second "station break" spot, featuring "The Frito Kid" (circa 1954).

A lot of neat things came from Casa de Fritos. One of the best and biggest for them was the Dorito chip. It was originally just a plain chip, but some employees began to put seasoning on them and the became so popular that Frito Lay began mass production and launched them in 1966 πŸ˜‹ - ItsADisneyLife4Me  211.2 #1911 10:07AM
YES! Thanks so much for adding that! mmmm Doritos are so good! - Duchess_SMK  6535.3 #19 10:11AM
thanks for sharing! - OhanaPhoto  6454.6 #21 1:03PM
Nice research again. You tied the history together. I, because I'm so old, have eaten at all three. Rancho del Zocalo is by far the best food. However, we have learned a more sophisticated appreciation for Mexican cuisine. - Midasgold  633.3 #337 11:46AM
Teehee, not a fan of frito pie eh? 😜 Thanks Midas! - Duchess_SMK  6535.3 #19 7:03AM
Thank you for this. its always nice to learn something new! - TikiJOSEsWingman  332.4 #765 9:36AM
:) Oh yay! Glad you enjoyed it! - Duchess_SMK  6535.3 #19 10:30AM
I remember eating there when it was Fritos. The food was just ok. I don't recall seeing the Frito Kid, but I do remember the free bag of Fritos. The change to Lawrys was much better. Thanks again for this fun trip down memory lane. - DisneyGrandma  881.4 #213 9:46AM
Free fritos would be memorable to me too! πŸ˜‹πŸ˜‚ thank YOU DG! 😘 - Duchess_SMK  6535.3 #19 1:55PM
We use to love eating at Casa de Fritos. Thank you for reminding us of things that use to be. - SeΓ±orBuzz&Jessie  68.5 #4315 9:54AM
Oh neat! Did you have a favorite thing to eat there? Do you remember the Frito Kid? - Duchess_SMK  6535.3 #19 7:04AM
Yes, we remember the Frito Kid. We liked the simple tamale and enchilada plate. Good times - SeΓ±orBuzz&Jessie  68.5 #4315 2:16PM
I'm old but not that old. I remember Casa Mexicana though. When I was a kid there was no way were leaving without my dad having a meal there. I haven't been there since its changed. But I did find a plate at the thrift store that they used there when it was Casa Mexicana. It's just a plain white plate with a golden ring around the edge and "D" for Disneyland of course. No one is allowed to use that plate at home besides me. - phillip...  1367.3 #137 9:55AM
I'm old and make FritoΒ©pie. - Butterlina  1587.9 #113 10:00AM
How neat that y'all have a plate from there! I won't ask how you acquired it, kinda like how I don't ask my mama how she has a Denny's mug.....πŸ˜‚ - Duchess_SMK  6535.3 #19 7:07AM
Mmmm butter, bet you make a mean one! - Duchess_SMK  6535.3 #19 7:08AM
One creepy thing I learned was that a lot of the animatronics used in the Mine Train through Nature's Wonderland are actually buried under what is now the seating area for Rancho. - BaseballMickey  7941.6 #11 10:10AM
Say what?! Any idea why they did that? - Duchess_SMK  6535.3 #19 7:01AM
They should put a warning on fritos bags that you will bad breath through at three teethbrushings. - madsdad  1868.2 #98 10:13AM
My husband had to sleep I the couch at least three times when I was pregnant due to frito breath. - LittleAprilShowers  587.6 #362 10:15AM
πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ‘ y'all crack me up - Duchess_SMK  6535.3 #19 7:00AM
Mmm frito taco shell?! Yum! And I love that walkway too behind the restaurant. Those bathrooms are virtually empty late night it's nice. Ty as usual for the great info Duchess! - missariel33  2115.6 #77 10:44AM
😘😘😘😘 - Duchess_SMK  6535.3 #19 7:00AM
Thanks for all of this fun info!! I never saw the Frito Kid...but I do vaguely remember getting the Fritos chips! We love that walkway too and I never knew that is what is was for before. 😊 - MinnieMousewife  916.7 #206 12:21PM
😘 Bummer about not seeing the frito kid either! He looked pretty neat! - Duchess_SMK  6535.3 #19 7:02AM
so fun, thanks Duchess! web-animated Frito Kid is a little scary, but i'm sure he was cuter in person. i love that walkway between Fantasy Faire and Rancho del Zocalo, also! - QueenMiranda  400.7 #584 1:13PM
You thought he was scary?! Lol awe! Sorry bout that. I thought he was cute! See, we've got lots in common! - Duchess_SMK  6535.3 #19 6:59AM

Disneyland unFORECAST (BETA) is here! Top MouseWaiters giving you the rundown of what's happening at the Disneyland Resort. The unFORECAST now has its own page on the web www.unFORECAST.com

unFORECAST for the month of June 2016
Last month (May) seemed to be quieter than last year, probably because the 60th Celebration began last May, making last summer a lot busier. Looking back at MouseWait's Historical Crowd Index (available in our MagicPlan iOS Calendar), crowds averaged in the mid 80s (approx 85% capacity) for the first two weeks of June, then it quieted down in the last two weeks of the month. We are estimating smaller crowds than last summer because the 60th Celebration is over a year old, and there are still a lot of attractions being refurbished. To get a real-time look at crowd levels, check the MouseWait App for Crowd Index averages and wait times. Have a great week! - Admin Jun 3, 2016 12:07PM

Credits have been applied to everyone's account as of today! - Admin 11:40AM
I just called them to price out our potential trip in June. Chris was so nice and the MW savings are phenomenal! Still waiting on work vacation approval to reserve the room!  - HNL2SFO  296.3 #981 1:26PM
What percentage saving are we looking at for being MouseWaiters? Is it better than a AAA discount.  - MoChuck  159.1 #2631 3:57PM
Hi @@@@@@Admin I filled out the form for 2/28 at Hojo and haven't seen any Credits. I also sent you a Support Ticket last week. Would you please look into this? As always, Thanks  @@@@@@Admin - Winnie111286  18248.9 #3 10:50PM

14 more days and I shall be entering in wait times for the first time( I was slow and shy to post). Well actually it will be 15 days. The first  day we check in and go to Trader Sam's. πŸ˜‰ - varela2892  64.0 #4433 7:14AM
I just want to thank all the newbies who are on the list so much lately! This was started as a wait time and more app so by your starting out from the beginning doing wait times is awesome! 2/3of my points are from wait times. I make a game of it and have fun doing them. Hope everyone tries it, it helps others and you earn credits!!πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘ - secretagentangel  6898.9 #17 9:06PM
Half of my points are from wait times.  - Goofytom  2764.6 #54 10:28PM
I figure it is the least my wife and i can do, plus it is great exercise! I keep saying, one of these days we will go to one of the meet-ups. We generally only go on Saturday and sometimes Sunday as well. That darn thing called 'work' just gets in the way!  - oiler2112  771.5 #257 7:07AM
Pretty much all my points are from wait times  - kimo  245.1 #1463 6:54PM
Wow! I made it to the top ten! And while pushing a wheelchair this trip...  - Jathanis  382.1 #615 3:18PM
Good job!!   - Ilovegoofy  68.6 #4311 10:28AM
I think one of you were just ahead of me today.  Most of the rides had the right wait time posted so they didnt need updating. - sallen848  186.5 #2219 10:51PM
Go ahead and update it as admin needs them posted as current time as possible. You can have ten people with you inputting times themselves and it still helps the app! (As long as all are on their own account I should clarify)😍 thanks for doing wait times, it helps us all!! - secretagentangel  6898.9 #17 1:19PM
