COP 1971 Disneyland Menu

This City of Portland menu from April, 1971, the last month the train would operate, features Cinderella’s Castle on the cover. Instead of the small drawing that is usually above the photo description, this menu features a photo of a Union Pacific “Route of the Domeliners” bus picking up passengers at the Disneyland Hotel to take them to the train station in Anaheim.

The menu inside has a slightly different selection of table d’hôte entrées from those we have seen before: brook trout, roast turkey, and veal cutlet. The meals also come with baked potato instead of the whipped potatoes offered by a 1970 menu. Despite 4 percent annual inflation and the upgrade to a baked potato, the price of the roast turkey has dropped by a nickel from $3.80 to $3.75 (about $21.50 today). Most of the other prices were unchanged.
