|Look at that line!|
And if you look up you may see a familiar figure in the weather vane.
Upon entering the building the line forks, leaving you to make that crucial decision that you’ve already been making all day while traversing Disney lines, “Right side or left side?”
Whichever side you choose there are little touches to make any Mary Poppins fan happy. If you take the right side you’ll see this:
And on the left side, you’ll get to see the woman herself.
The menu here has a few more choices than the Blue Ribbon Bakery did. Besides dessert and coffee you can choose from sandwiches, salads, or a couple of house specialties. The entire menu can be found on All Ears.

When it’s your turn they flag you by holding up a sign. What kind of sign? Well, this is the Jolly Holiday!
Any fan of Mary Poppins would love visiting this bakery. The theming is great and there are Poppins touches everywhere!

As some of you may know, Disney added the Jolly Holiday because they wanted to expand the Carnation Cafe on Main Street to once again offer indoor seating. In order to do this they had to take over the space occupied by the Blue Ribbon Bakery. I placed my camera on top of the Carnation Cafe construction wall to see if anything exciting was done. Nothing too exciting yet, as you can see.

Upon closing the Blue Ribbon and Carnation Cafe, Disney decided to extend the construction all the way down that side of Main Street.
It's weird seeing all these shops shuttered at the same time. I don't think I've ever seen the Penny Arcade all boarded up! Remember when the Penny Arcade was an actual arcade?
The Candy Palace and Gibson Girl Ice Cream Parlor are also being refurbished, and will re-open sometime this spring. The Carnation Cafe, aka the best place to get breakfast in Disneyland, is scheduled to re-open this summer.
