Disney’s Princess Fairytale Hall opens on September 18th! You will be given a choice to meet Cinderella and visiting princess or Rapunzel and a visiting princess. As with all things with the new Fantasyland expansion, no detail is too small for this magical place. There are custom portraits of all of the princesses. Melted wax on the candle sticks. Check out this you tube video to see more details.

Gaston’s Tavern

image1

Nestled in the new Fantasyland expansion is Gaston’s Tavern.  As a girl who grew up with the new animated classics and could recite Beauty & the Beast for you line by line, this whole area is just perfect! The new storytime in Belle and Maurice’s cottage is fab and so is every detail at Be Our Guest restaurant.

However in all the excitement for this area plastered all over the internet, poor Gaston seems to be left out! And since Be Our Guest is so popular the lines here can be significantly shorter!! Here are my top 5 reasons you should add Gaston’s to your to-do list:
1- The fountain!! After all what is a Beauty & the Beast area without a fountain? It makes me want to sit and ready a fairytale like Belle does in her opening sequence of the film.

2- The attention to detail! Have a seat by the fire in Gaston’s chair, check out how he used antlers in all of his decorating, and even check out his winning dart game vs Lefou!
3- Surprises! The nods to Disney references worked right into the barrels!

4- Lefou’s Brew! I love signature drinks and this frosty apple frozen drink does not disappoint! And for an added charge you can get it in a souvenir mug!

5- The food! My cinnamon roll was bigger than Gaston’s bicep and I liked the lamb shank better than (gasp!) the Magic Kingdom turkey legs!!

Disney Princesses, How to Look like a Disney Princess, Disney Princess Characteristics

By Frances

The Disney Princesses are getting a new meet and great area! It will open at the end of this year!

The seven dwarfs are getting their own ride that will be filled with twist and turns.

Be sure to watch the video on the Disney Parks Blog. I love how the cast members talk about how it’s a show vs a ride.

For more information:

Here is why, Mouze Kateerz writer, Lucinda purchased a Tables in Wonderland Card. She is a Florida Resident & Annual Pass Holder. “20% is a good discount…makes it easy to get your money back, so to speak. Meaning…that for our family, we only need to dine out four times a year for the card to be a good value. TiW makes it more feasible for us, as locals to dine on Disney property. I like that beverages are included as well…and I like that we can include up to 9 guests per visit. There’s a nice long list of participating restaurants.”

Here is my thoughts. If the Disney Dining Plan says that it will save you up to 20% off and this will save you 20% off plus you can save on adult beverages, I think it will save money.

Here’s a list of participating restaurants:
