video tour


Part of the new Fantasyland expansion is a real world version of Gaston’s Tavern from Beauty & The Beast. While the food offerings are basically a glorified food cart, the interior feels very much like it is part of the movie. I do have some quibbles, the animal trophies are all too small and there wasn’t enough seating, but there are indeed antlers in all of his decorating and lots of little touches and nods from and to the film.

I do like the Pork Shank instead of a Turkey Leg. Nice touch.

Yesterday I had the great privilege to get a tour of the New Fantasyland expansion from Walt Disney Imagineer Chris Beatty. No photo or video was allowed on that tour, but Disney has made available the following two very recent videos from the construction site. Up first is an interview with Art Director Ted Robledo who talks about the project and what guests can expect when this exciting project is complete.

Below the jump is a more extensive look at the work being done, particularly around the Be Our Guest restaurant, Maurice’s Cottage, and The Little Mermaid attraction.
