Sneak Peek into Gaston's Tavern


The power of social media...

When it came across my Facebook and Twitter feed that the New Fantasyland at the Magic Kingdom was holding a dress rehearsal today, it didn't take me long to shower, shave and head out the door from my home and make the 20 minute trip to Walt Disney World. 

What followed was a truly awe inspiring experience. Most of the construction walls were down and Disney Cast Members were welcoming us in to the first of many dress rehearsals for the New Fantasyland. 

I will let the pictures do most of the talking. The detail is amazing and you really feel as if you've stepped into an animated world. A magnificent world that only the great Disney Imagineers can dream up.

First stop - Gaston's Tavern





Gaston will make daily appearances. A first for the Magic Kingdom. 
Refreshments will be available at Gaston's.
LeFou's Brew - sure to be a favorite. Watch out Butterbeer!
The signature drink of Gaston's Tavern - LeFou's Brew. A recipe borrowed from Cars Land, this tasty concoction is the same as Red’s Apple Freeze at the Cozy Cone, a cold combination of frozen apple juice with flavors of toasted marshmallow and a generous squirt of passion fruit-mango foam on top. Here it’s served souvenir steins and goblets.
Yes. He uses antlers in all of his decorating. 
More antlers. Would you expect anything less?
