Restaurant History

The building that today houses Cheshire Cafe originally opened in 1973 as Fantasyland Art Festival, a caricature and portrait merchandise location. In 1983 the building was repurposed as a dining location named Enchanted Grove [1]. The quick service restaurant remained essentially the same until October 11, 2011 when it was renamed Cheshire Cafe [2] [3]. Following the name change, the light blue shingles on the restaurant's roof was removed, as was the ivy that could be found on the building [2].
