Meeting Gaston in Fantasyland in Magic Kingdom - Gaston With His Nose Stuck in a Book

Gaston…With His Nose Stuck in a Book!

It’s somewhat shocking, but it happened.  That’s right—everyone’s favorite guy, Gaston, had that dreamy far off look and his nose stuck in a book when we met him recently in Walt Disney World!  The man Belle called, “boorish” and “brainless” wasn’t entirely opposed to seeing his story in print, but he did have some significant edits to how the whole thing went down.  While we understand his skewed perspective, we think he’s probably been living in Fantasyland too long.  We fully support the Beast’s growth throughout the story and think he and Belle are perfect together in the end.  What do you think?  Are you team Gaston or team Beast?

We hope you enjoy this, the sixth installment in our new, exclusive series, “Will You Sign My…?” featuring our most memorable interactions with Disney characters.  Stay tuned for more fun meet and greets and check out the rest of the series here or on YouTube!

Of course, we’re sharing our interactions with Disney characters for your viewing pleasure, but we’re also hoping these videos serve as inspiration for you to make your own unique, magical memories. Frequently, children are more excited to meet characters than adults as they often feel more at ease in meet and greet situations. While our character videos are meant to be fun for the whole family, they’re specifically geared for adults to help increase comfort and foster creative ideas and personalized approaches to character interactions. Autograph books are great souvenir options for little ones especially, but our meet and greets feature everything from funny props to rather odd requests, the occasional sentimental souvenir and even a practical item or two to elicit amusing, original experiences. For adults who feel awkward or uncomfortable in a basic meet and greet environment or for anyone looking to plus up their character interactions, we highly recommend this customized approach, and we invite you to share your experiences with us!
