The other day I posted the above picture and asked for guesses as to where the fireplace was located. This one proved to be pretty easy, because a lot of people were able to correctly identify where it is!
The fireplace is located at Gaston’s Tavern in Magic Kingdom. This fun little quick service restaurant is nestled between Be Our Guest Restaurant and Under the Sea – Journey of the Little Mermaid. This is also the same area where guests can meet Gaston.
Outside the tavern you will find a fountain inspired by the one in the animated movie. The fountain shows Gaston standing tall with one foot on a rock and one foot on LeFou’s shoulder. Gaston is holding a barrel that is spilling and Lefou is trying to catch the spilling liquid in his cup. The fountain is a fun photo opportunity by itself or as a background to take a picture in front of.
Once you step inside the tavern there is no mistaking where it gets its name. The fireplace is located in the dining room next to a big chair, which is actually Gaston’s chair. Above the fireplace is a gigantic picture of Gaston on top of a mountain looking very proud of himself. The frame of the picture is outline with different sets of antlers and there are light fixtures made out of antlers, as well. These decorations are pretty similar to what the tavern looked like in the animated feature, just take a look at this picture.
One of my favorite decorations at Gaston’s Tavern is the dartboard in the other dining area. It’s hanging on the wall and it shows that Gaston and LeFou have been playing quite a few games. Of course, poor LeFou has only won five games compared to the sixty games won by Gaston.
Not only are the decorations fun here, but there are some good snacks you can pick up while visiting. The big cinnamon roll is a favorite among guests, as is the specialty drink “LeFou’s Brew” which is made up of frozen apple juice with a hint of toasted marshmallow and topped with a passion fruit-mango foam.

So if you haven’t been to Gaston’s yet, check it out the next time you are in the Magic Kingdom. Even if you don’t order anything, it’s worth it to go in and check out the decorations.
Thanks to everyone who played along this week and congratulations to those that knew where the fireplace is located! We’ll play again next Wednesday!
