New Orleans Square location, July 18, 1955
Does this area of Disneyland look unfamiliar? It’s a shot from Frontierland over the Rivers of America facing the area that is now New Orleans Square. The Building you see is the Chicken Plantation Restaurant, which closed in 1962. Lots to see in this photo: sailors gazing over the water, pickup trucks parked near the banks of the River, plenty of brightly colored umbrellas to shade diners from the July heat, and what appears to be unsightly power lines.
