Welcome to the worlds of Tomorrow, Yesterday, and Fantasy — Walt Disney World’s Magic Kingdom! We’re bringing you What’s New in the ol’ MK — from Spring Break week, y’all!
In yet another twist to the menu at Gaston’s Tavern in Magic Kingdom’s New Fantasyland, Gaston has added some mammoth, meaty sandwiches to the offerings.
You may know that we have long bemoaned the loss of the Pork Shank, which was the Tavern’s signature item when New Fantasyland opened in 2012. Ever since that was removed from the menu, it’s felt like Gaston’s Tavern has lost its footing somewhat in figuring out what to serve (awesome Cinnamon Roll — with extra icing, please! — notwithstanding). Though they did have a decent Tavern Beef Stew for a spell, entree-style items have been largely absent from the menu here.
But for a place with such terrific atmosphere, we wanted more of a reason to linger in the setting in addition to the sweet snacks primarily featured on the menu. Yep, I call the atmosphere “terrific.” Because you know Gaston… he loves his compliments!
Plus, it truly is an awesome setting… [Read more…]

Welcome to Walt Disney World’s Magic Kingdom, where you can leave the world of today and visit the worlds of yesterday, tomorrow, and fantasy! And where there’s always something new to check out. That’s where we come in.
Gaston’s Tavern has become a nice little getaway in New Fantasyland (seriously, it’s been five years; when can we stop calling it “New”?), with a limited menu and proximity to meet-and-greets with the man himself.
Gaston’s menu is usually pretty minimal. At present you can find a Ham and Cheese Pretzel, a Chocolate Croissant, and a Fruit and Cheese Picnic Platter much better suited to Belle than someone so good at expectorating. And then there’s the Warm Cinnamon Roll, which is soooo satisfying (particularly so when you request extra icing…). We love it so much we even got the recipe!
Happy Weekend!! We’re back with another DFB Video today, and we’re taking you on a food tour of EVERY restaurant in Magic Kingdom’s Fantasyland in Walt Disney World!
When it comes to dining, Fantasyland is best known as home to two of the most popular dining experiences in Disney World, with Cinderella’s Royal Table and Be Our Guest Restaurant. But it’s not all Castles and Princesses when it comes to Fantasyland restaurants, where you’ll find everything from iconic park treats like Specialty Caramel Apples to Cinnamon Rolls to something by the name of the “Cheshire Cat Tail.” We’ll tell you where to find all those and MUCH more as we check out every single food stop in Fantasyland!

You already know that Walt Disney World’s Magic Kingdom is, well, magical. From sunrise to sunset and beyond, it’s beautiful from almost any angle.
And now our icing wishes have come true (naturally!) at Gaston’s Tavern.
TOMORROW is the very first Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party for the 2017 Holiday Season at Magic Kingdom!
Packed with special entertainment, festive character greetings, the Once Upon a Christmastime Parade, the Holiday Wishes Fireworks Spectacular, access to Magic Kingdom attractions, and all sorts of yuletide treats and cheer, this extra ticketed event runs on select nights through December 22, 2017.

It’s October in Magic Kingdom, and it’s a wonderful time to be here!
As the temps cool down (in the evenings, anyway) and the festive decorations go up, there’s even more to enjoy, like Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party and the Fall Finale of Mickey’s Royal Friendship Faire!
What better way to say “I Was There” than with the…

Hey Guys! We’re back with another DFB Video today, and we’re getting down to the serious business of RANKING Magic Kingdom restaurants!
