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:
http://tinyurl.com/kovgv77 .
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).

Were you lucky enjoy to have seen the Frito Kid at Disneyland?

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 #1742 10:07AM
YES! Thanks so much for adding that! mmmm Doritos are so good! - Duchess_SMK  5778.4 #14 10:11AM
thanks for sharing! - OhanaPhoto  3277.5 #30 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  578.2 #307 11:46AM
Teehee, not a fan of frito pie eh? 😜 Thanks Midas! - Duchess_SMK  5778.4 #14 7:03AM
Thank you for this. its always nice to learn something new! - TikiJOSEsWingman  332.4 #649 9:36AM
:) Oh yay! Glad you enjoyed it! - Duchess_SMK  5778.4 #14 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  732.6 #220 9:46AM
Free fritos would be memorable to me too! πŸ˜‹πŸ˜‚ thank YOU DG! 😘 - Duchess_SMK  5778.4 #14 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 #3931 9:54AM
Oh neat! Did you have a favorite thing to eat there? Do you remember the Frito Kid? - Duchess_SMK  5778.4 #14 7:04AM
Yes, we remember the Frito Kid. We liked the simple tamale and enchilada plate. Good times - SeΓ±orBuzz&Jessie  68.5 #3931 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. - philliprocks  905.4 #172 9:55AM
I'm old and make FritoΒ©pie. - Butterlina  1480.3 #91 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  5778.4 #14 7:07AM
Mmmm butter, bet you make a mean one! - Duchess_SMK  5778.4 #14 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_CM  6373.1 #12 10:10AM
Say what?! Any idea why they did that? - Duchess_SMK  5778.4 #14 7:01AM
They should put a warning on fritos bags that you will bad breath through at three teethbrushings. - madsdad  1802.1 #74 10:13AM
My husband had to sleep I the couch at least three times when I was pregnant due to frito breath. - LittleAprilShowers  559.5 #315 10:15AM
πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ‘ y'all crack me up - Duchess_SMK  5778.4 #14 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  1617.0 #82 10:44AM
😘😘😘😘 - Duchess_SMK  5778.4 #14 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  772.3 #206 12:21PM
😘 Bummer about not seeing the frito kid either! He looked pretty neat! - Duchess_SMK  5778.4 #14 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  396.3 #505 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  5778.4 #14 6:59AM

If you're there today, you can make HandMeAChurroImmaFaint 'S POTC meetup at 6 pm. Usually they will gather across from the ride entrance. Perhaps along the fence area of the Riverbelle Terrace. Look for a fairly large group of fun-loving people. Many will have their mouse ears on. Your hostess, Ms Churro, will be leading the way. Just dive right in and ask, 'excuse me. Is this the Mousewait meetup?'  You won't be sorry!  Disneygrl35 - MeridaFan  3441.0 #28 2:09PM

unFORECAST (BETA) is here! Top MouseWaiters giving you the rundown of what's happening at the Disneyland Resort. Automated crowd prediction calendars are worthless--the UNFORECAST is where it's at!

unForecast for week of December 22, 2014:

Park Hours: DL: 8am-12am (Monday, Tuesday, Thursday-Sunday) 8am-11pm (Wednesday); DCA: 8am-11pm (Monday, Tuesday, Thursday-Sunday), 8am-10pm (Wednesday).

Reminder to check out the new "Freeze the Night", apart of Frozen Fun in Hollywood Land every night. 

unForecast Crowd Prediction: Expect it to be busy this week, Monday and Tuesday, with CIs in the 80s in Disneyland Park and in the 70s in DCA. Christmas Eve and Christmas Day are hard to predict, crowd wise, as it is sometimes busy and sometimes crowded. Then expect it to be busy the rest of the weekend. 

Merry Christmas!  - BaseballMickey_CM Dec 22, 2014 12:07PM



We have always noticed that Saturdays are better than Sundays! We always come on the weekend and say we want to leave at dinner time on Sunday, but always leave by 11-12 because there are so many people. We love Saturday!! - 1Princess3Princes  351.6 #595 5:39PM
I agree. I think it has to do with most passes being blocked - PoohSizedGuy  18.5 #6735 11:53PM
I love these posts!  I do have a question/request/suggestion...is there a way to only show the 3-4 most recent posts?  It's a lot to scroll through. @@Admin - TiggersAndTinks  114.1 #3182 5:08AM
I second this. The info is great to have, but it's too long.  - 1HitchhikingGhost  215.0 #1689 5:04PM
Thanks for these updates. I love them!  - Dizkid  353.9 #588 6:07PM
It's Dance the Magic this weekend-always adds to the crowds too!!! - TinkerSchelle  1200.6 #119 8:23PM
