In celebration of the upcoming release of Disney’s new live-action reimagining of “Beauty and the Beast”, the Fastasyland area of the original Disneyland park in Anaheim, California will undergo a limited-time transformation that will immerse guests in the world of the movie.
As announced today by the Disney Parks Blog, a number of new experiences will pop up soon in both Fantasyland and the adjacent Fantasy Faire, most notably the Red Rose Tavern– temporarily replacing the Village Haus restaurant with a new French menu (yes, including the Grey Stuff) and murals depicting the internationally-famous “tale as old as time”.
Also available will be the Royal Reception “Beauty and the Beast” merchandise location, new twists on the tasty offerings at Maurice’s Treats, and the return of the villainous Gaston, who will once again wander through Fantasyland flexing his biceps for his admirers (mostly himself).
