8/1 Gaston Fountain Statue With LeFou Now in Front of Gaston’s Tavern! Turrets, Little Mermaid
We are often asked for Fantasyland updates, and we have a great one today! Gaston and LeFou are now in front of Gaston's Tavern, and turrets are being added along the castle walls.
We have a video posted of the Gaston fountain statue with LeFou! If you follow that link, you'll find more Fantasyland videos as well. Our videos have now topped 10 million views!
Here are a few of the Gaston's statue photos, you'll see more later in the update! It was raining while we were taking the photos, so they aren't as bright as I'd like. I love how in the first photo, it looks like spaghetti coming out of LeFou's nose (if spaghetti was the color of electrical wires). The concept art we've seen shows a fountain with Gaston and LeFou, Gaston holding what looks to be a rifle. It appears here that he's holding barrels in both hands. Barrels of what, I'm not sure – since Gaston's won't be serving real alcohol.
When we'd arrived earlier, the clouds were threatening, but it was a bit brighter of a day. There was a lot of construction activity in Fantasyland, as workers tried to beat the weather.
Lights underneath the archways, some are still in bubble wrap:
