Citrus House


Enjoy fresh-squeezed orange juice.

Ready for a break?

How about a cup of delicious, 100% fresh-squeezed Sunkist orange juice? Or maybe a tall, refreshing lemonade, made with fresh-squeezed Sunkist lemons? If it’s a hot day, you might prefer a Sunkist frozen juice bar. You could also order coffee, rolls, lemon tarts, or cheesecake.

If you’re in Adventureland, you can find a similar beverage menu at “Sunkist, I Presume,” a delightful outdoor facility. Here, you can order a jungle julep. Hungry? Have a donut or a hot dog.

In Disneyland, the Sunkist Citrus House survived on Main Street until 1990, when the Blue Ribbon Bakery replaced it. This location is next door to the Penny Arcade.

In March 1997, the former Sunkist Citrus House location became the Gibson Girl Ice Cream Parlor, hosted by Nestlé Ice Cream,a take-out ice cream location serving eight flavors of scooped ice cream and six flavors of soft-serve frozen yogurt.

The Blue Ribbon Bakery, serving fresh baked goods and gourmet coffee, moved next door into the former Carnation Ice Cream Parlor and Restaurant (a Disneyland institution since 1955). Fortunately, Carnation’s outdoor dining patio survived as a table-service restaurant, the Carnation Café.

Over in Disneyland’s Adventureland, the Bengal Barbecue replaced “Sunkist, I Presume.” in 1990.
