"Not so" Wordless Wednesday: Darby O'Gill and the Little People

"Singin's no sin & Drinkin's no crime" - King Brian

This week, Deb is ready for the new Beauty and the Beast movie (as well as everyone else,) and she shared pictures from the Be Our Guest restaurant inside Magic Kingdom.  We love this restaurant as well.  We've been a few times for lunch and really enjoy it.  The atmosphere is fun, the food is fast (once you order) and it's yummy and just a little different than your average quick-service meal.  We've never been for dinner, so we haven't met the Beast yet, but on our upcoming trip we've got an early reservation so we can try the breakfast.   Honestly, I'm more excited about the 8:00 reservation than the actual location/food even though I'm sure it will be good.  You really can't beat getting into the park before it opens though.  

 Merging Deb's idea and my quote of the week, I'd like to share one of my family's new favorites.  Gaston's Tavern!


We love this LeFou's Brew, especially on a warm day.  Here's the description from Disney: Frozen Apple Juice with a hint of Toasted Marshmallow and topped with All-Natural Passion Fruit-Mango Foam.  We've gotten it with and without the foam, and really you can't go wrong either way.  We usually get one for the family and share it since it is pretty sweet.  If you choose to stay outside the tavern with your drink/snack, you can sit around this fountain, which my little one loves.  (In all honesty, she loves all water.)  If your timing works out, you can be entertained by Gaston himself even if the line is too long to actually meet him yourself.  (As a bonus, there are also restrooms nearby, so it suites everyone in our family to rest here for a minute.)

If you choose to sit inside, there is a small room to the right that is amazing to take in.  Gaston's big throne chair is there and you can even sit in it.  I thought we did this, but I can't seem to find any pictures.  Plus, check out this ginormous cinnamon roll!


If you can manage to look past the big, yummy cinnamon roll, you can see they also serve bottled apple juice here.  Stops that sell those have been crucial for us the past few trips since my weird kid refuses to drink water.  Although this place is a little small, if you hit it at a somewhat off time, this side room can seem almost empty, making it a great place to rest and enjoy a little downtime.  Even if it is busy, it's a great spot for a quick grab and go.

What quick service places do you enjoy?

  3. Frozen apple juice and marshmallow sounds amazing! All these posts are making me so excited for Friday when my daughter and I are going to see members of Disney concert orchestra in London introduce the new film with a selection of songs live.
