Gaston from Beauty & the Beast and Wendy Darling Character Training at Epcot for Future New Fantasyland, Gaston’s Tavern, MouseSteps Weekly Episode 3 – Photos and Video

Hi everyone!

We were heading to Epcot today to dine at the Mexico pavilion’s La Hacienda (thanks to our friends Kelly and June!), and we’d been told that Gaston (from Beauty and the Beast) and Wendy Darling (from Peter Pan) were greeting guests. Both Gaston (below, left) and Wendy were testing, likely for meet-and-greets in the new Fantasyland. Gaston was quite the hit with the women, as one grabs a load of his muscular arm (below, right).

Star Tours 3D: The Adventure Continues Meet-Up and Opening Day Highlights with Queue, Characters and More – Photos and Video

Hi everyone!

We had a terrific time at the Star Tours Meet-Up, which was at midnight on Thursday, May 20th – the grand opening day of  “Star Tours – The Adventure Continues“.  We’d already ridden this updated attraction twice in the previous week during soft openings. Parking was at Blizzard Beach, and we arrived at 10:45 to check in. We waited on the bus (below, left) for about 45 minutes until it was time to be taken to Disney’s Hollywood Studios. The red carpet and smoke (below, right) from an event earlier in the evening was still out for us.

Hi everyone!

We were very surprised yesterday at Star Wars Weekends to see an interactive talking C3PO in the park! While waiting for the Hyperspace Hoopla, we heard the crowd get a little louder – we turned around, and C3PO was walking by (below left and right). He is fully interactive, in the way that the Mickey Mouse was in a test at Disneyland.
