Inside, artwork reminiscent of the film includes colorful mosaics of pavement chalk drawings, stained glass windows with penguin waiters and two models of the carousel featured in the film's "Jolly Holiday" sequence. Guests will enjoy a music box soundtrack of "Jolly Holiday" playing in the background as they savor their sweets, sandwiches and beverages.

The Victorian building that houses the Jolly Holiday Bakery Cafe dates back to the opening day of Disneyland when it was known simply as the Pavilion. After many years as the Plaza Pavilion restaurant, it became the Annual Passport Processing Center and also the site for special offerings, such as the Junior Chef program.
