Cucamonga in Disneyland (almost)

29054-cocinadisney.jpg

I haven’t been to Disneyland in 20 years, and I’ve never been to California Adventure, but friends tell me there’s a restaurant at California Adventure named Cocina Cucamonga. And here’s a photo to prove it.

Next door is a tortilla-making tour sponsored by Mission Foods, which is based in Rancho Cucamonga and which hosts the restaurant, thus explaining the choice of name.

On the Mission Foods website in the “At a Glance” section, note that among the 19 plant locations is one in “Rancho CA.” I guess you have to go to Anaheim for the “Cucamonga” part.

    For the record, it’s in California Adventure, the younger, smaller park next door to Disneyland.

    [I fixed that...for the record. -- DA]

    The photo looks like it’s part of the “California Adventure” park side of Disneyland Resort if we want to be technical.

    [I've corrected the entry. Thank you. -- DA]

    …and thanks Dave! Glad to share anything I.E. related.

    Technically, the park’s called Disney’s California Adventure, or DCA for short by Disney fans like me and my family.

    David, you need to get out of our area once in a while. Heck, right now if your birthday is coming up you can get into the park for free if you register. OR you can buy a three-day pass for $99.

    [Maybe if some friends go sometime I'll tag along. I dunno, I'm not really in Disney's demographic. -- DA]

    Cucamonga in Anaheim brings full circle the Mel Blanc bit in Warner Bros. cartoons of the ’40s and ’50s in which he called out the train station stops in exaggerated fashion:

    Anaheim, Azusa and Cuc-a-monga!

    [Wish I'd thought of that. Excellent point, Bob. -- DA]

    David,

    You HAVE to go for your birthday — it’s FREE this year (only for the main park, however). Since I have passes, I’LL TAKE YOU. :) Seriously! :) :)

    [I already had my birthday this year. But that was a sweet offer. -- DA]

    You blog look really great. The content is really good too.

    You should network with the moms in the bizymoms rancho-cucamonga community.
