This week New Fantasyland reached a milestone, selling 100,000 orders of Gaston’s Tavern’s signature drink, “LeFou’s Brew.” To celebrate this milestone, I ventured to the cozy cottage like restaurant in Magic Kingdom Park with my friends Kelly and Betsy (pictured below) to try it for the first time. It was the perfect treat for a sunny day!
Pictured below, I’m enjoying a frothy mug in Gaston’s chair, a centerpiece of Gaston’s Tavern. It’s one of my absolute favorite places for a souvenir photo. To find the famous chair, enter the Tavern and head to the room on the right. You’ll spot it ...

One of the new Dumbo rides is already open, then other is being tested. But what's under the tent? The Disney Parks Blog released two photos today!
According to the Blog:
This innovative queue area will completely redefine what it means for guests to prepare for a Disney attraction. Here’s how it will work: Guests arrive at Dumbo’s big top and receive a circus ticket pager that virtually holds their place and notifies them when it’s their turn to board the attraction. Kids (and kids of all ages) can then become part of the show inside the tent by enjoying circus-themed play experiences, while Dumbo flies high above....

Approximately 63,000 Cobb salads are served every year at The Hollywood Brown Derby at Disney’s Hollywood Studios. The original recipe for the dressing, created in 1926, still tops the salads. “The Cobb” was invented at the original Hollywood Brown Derby by restaurateur Bob Cobb.

Between strikes and spares, bowlers can feast on hand-tossed pizza, fresh-rolled sushi, hand-cut filet sliders and other menu items served right at the lane, all while enjoying an entertaining atmosphere.

Where in Disney World can you find things to do OUTSIDE the parks?
Walt Disney World has dozens of activities and things to do at the resorts, Downtown Disney, and other areas. On each trip we try to schedule at least a partial day not going to a park.

One of our favorite things to do outside the parks is spending time at our Resort Pool.
