Presuming in Adventureland

This 1963 photo was something I had to get because of its signage; on the left is a sign for the refreshment stand called "Sunkist, I Presume." Located across from the Jungle Cruise, the little hut opened in 1962 and served fresh orange juice, Jungle Juleps (a combo of orange, lemon, guava and grenadine), lemonade, frozen yogurt, juice bars, lemon tarts, hot dogs, sandwiches, coffee, and donuts. It was replaced by The Bengal Barbecue in 1992.

On the right is the signage for The Jungle Cruise, circa 1963.

Wowza!! It’s the Sunkist "I Presume" sign. You've absolutely made my day. I've eaten here many a time for a quick breakfast of two buttermilk bars and a jungle julep. Lots of memories of this place.

The Sunkist "I Presume" spot was previously occupied by Tropical Cantina.

Thanks for posting!

We eat at Bengal Barbecue every DL trip and I love that the sign still has the same shape of the Sunkist I presume sign. I could go for a Jungle Julep right now!


I have in my collection the full size color art for the Sunkist I Presume sign with natives, flag and orange juice. I was unsure of the artworks age, but it was stamped WED ENTERPRISE with a Sonora Street address so I could only calculate that it was prior to 1965. Everything at Disneyland in the 60's always seemed so much brighter.
