From Times Staff and Wire Reports

Disney to Open Restaurant: The Walt Disney Co., a leader in the film and amusement-park business, is branching out into the restaurant business with the planned opening of the Disney Restaurant next month. The company will open its first fast-food restaurant April 21 at the Montclair Plaza, a regional shopping mall about 30 miles east of Los Angeles. Alongside the restaurant, the company will open one of its Disney Stores, a highly successful chain the company began three years ago. One of Disney’s theme-park competitors, Knott’s Berry Farm, plans to begin construction this summer of a Mrs. Knott’s Restaurant and Bakery in Irvine, with a December opening scheduled.
