Vintage Blue Bayou
This vintage 1966 photo shows the recently opened Blue Bayou Restaurant in Disneyland's New Orleans Square. Here is the accompanying publicity blurb:
DINING BY CANDLELIGHT AND MOONLIGHT - - In Disneyland's new Blue Bayou Restaurant, authentic Southern cuisine and Dixieland music mingle on the romantic veranda of an old southern mansion overlooking the moonlit bayou. Out across the blue waters is an old trapper's boat, mighty oaks trailing Spanish moss and the sounds of bayou animals. Diners here are seated beneath the legendary Dueling Oak.
Zooming in, I have to ask what the heck is going on with this poor cast member's hat? It looks like something you'd put over a roll of toilet paper in the guest bathroom.
A closer look at the painted backdrop and trapper's boat.
The Bayou is still an amazing dining option when you visit Disneyland; just make sure you get a reservation ahead of time!
