Gibson Girl Ice Cream Parlor is the name of two quick-service turn-of-the-century Main Street-style ice cream parlors known for its elegance and wide variety of Ice Cream. The restaurants are located at Disneyland in Anaheim, California and in Disneyland Paris. As a parlor with little seating, no reservations are available at Gibson Girl Ice Cream Parlor.

The Disneyland restaurant is located between the Penny Arcade and Carnation Cafe (formerly the Blue Ribbon Bakery). Minimal guest seating is located inside the body of the building. In Disneyland Paris, the restaurant is located between the Liberty Arcade and Walt's – An American Restaurant.

The Gibson Girl Ice Cream Parlor is a tribute to Charles Dana Gibson, an American graphic artist, noted for his creation of the Gibson Girl: an iconic representation of the beautiful and independent American woman at the turn of the century.

Disneyland Description

At this old-fashioned ice cream parlor hosted by Dreyer’s, you’ll find sweetly nostalgic sundaes dressed up with freshly baked waffle cups and cookies. Or keep it classic with floats, hand-scooped cups and cones, and soda fountain drinks.

Disneyland Paris

History

The Gibson Girl Ice Cream Parlour first opened its doors to Disneyland Paris guests on April 12, 1992 with the grand opening of Disneyland Paris. The restaurant was modeled specifically after the Gibson Girl Ice Cream Parlor in Disneyland in Anaheim, California.

History

The original Gibson Girl Ice Cream Parlor 1997-2012

The Gibson Girl Ice Cream Parlor first opened its doors to Disneyland guests in 1997, after the original Blue Ribbon Bakery was relocated to Carnation Ice Cream Parlor's original location (Before it became Carnation Cafe again in 2012). After Nestle purchased the Carnation Company, for which Carnation Ice Cream Parlor was so named, Nestle decided to create the Gibson Girl Ice Cream Parlor, where Nestle brand Ice Cream would be served.

Refurbishment

Ordering Area 2012-Present

The Gibson Girl Ice Cream Parlor was refurbished in 2012. For better crowd control, Gibson Girl's kitchen area was pushed back, allowing a four-row switchback. Most of the seating area and the glass elephant were removed and replaced with a window where guests can see cast members making waffle cones and dipping them in sprinkles. Gibson Girl also added Coca-Cola and Orange Fanta floats to its menu in addition to traditional root beer floats, however, the Disneyland only "Fantasia" flavor was removed. 

The Glass Elephant

The Glass Elephant.

A well-known icon in Gibson Girl Ice Cream Parlor, the Glass Elephant, is a lucite mold from Disneyland Paris. The glass elephant was originally filled with pennies but the pennies were removed when the elephant came to Disneyland. After the remodeling in 2012, the elephant was removed and returned to Disneyland Paris.

Trivia

  • The amount of ice cream sold at Gibson Girl Ice Cream Parlor at Disneyland is enough to create a full-scale model of the Matterhorn.
