Fact or Rumor?

At the dining room at the back of the Gibson Girl ice cream parlor there was a five-foot long, 4-foot tall green glass elephant named Penny, which was imported from Disneyland Paris, and was filled to the top with pennies (it's hollow) thus the name penny. But it was moved to Disneyland, Anaheim, and emptied of pennies.

Another rumor is that it took many failed molding/kiln attempts until she came out without flaws. She was placed in their Penny Arcade but her name is Lucy because she appears to be made from "Lucite".

During the recent renovation the beloved elephant was removed, but she will live on in our memories!

 

Nestled in between the Blue Ribbon Bakery and the Penny Arcade is this storefront, the Gibson Girl Ice Cream Parlor.

Currently it is sponsored by Dreyer's (Edy's to those of us west of the Mississippi), both of which are owned by Nestlé.

The parlor uses Charles Dana Gibson's well known 'Gibson Girl' imagery to evoke a certain turn of the century feel to the establishment.

According to Eddie Sotto, former Imagineer Blaine Gibson suggested to his co-workers that many times it was just as good to use established images and iconography as to create something from scratch, and this is a case in point.

If you happen to visit this spot during the holidays you'll notice a subtle change to the flavors offered — be on the look out for eggnog and peppermint ice cream and pumpkin, hollymint, and spiced apple yogurt.

A mountain of sweets . . .  Gibson Girl Ice Cream Parlor sells enough ice cream in one year to build a full-size replica of the park’s Matterhorn mountain.

For the first five years of the park, this location was the Puffin Bakery.  

In 1960, the location closed for a month and reopened as the Sunkist Citrus House, where fruit juices and sandwiches were offered.

In 1990 the Sunkist sponsorship ended and this location became the Blue Ribbon Bakery.  

In 1997, the Carnation Ice Cream Parlor was reorganized into Carnation Cafe, and Blue Ribbon Bakery was moved into what had been the indoor portion of that restaurant.

The Gibson Girl Ice Cream Parlor opened at that time.

Fantasia: Until 2003, Gibson Girl Ice Cream Parlor was the only location in the world for Fantasia ice cream from Carnation (attempts to sell it at Walt Disney World had not succeeded).

Citing the cost of producing the flavor for just Disneyland and limited demand, the flavor was discontinued in 2004.
