New Fantasyland Update: Classic Meet & Greet at Pete’s Silly Sideshow

One of the bigger curiosities about the New Fantasyland expansion has been what the Walt Disney Imagineers were planning to do with the two big-top tents (left over from Mickey's Toontown Fair) in the Storybook Circus area.  Well they've given us an answer, for at least one of the tents.  One tent will house Pete’s Silly Sideshow character meet & greet, a place where guests can meet some of their favorite Disney characters in their "Circus Star" personas.

New Fantasyland Update: Gaston's Statue


 As someone who has always rooted for the bad guy in films, I openly admit when it comes to Beauty and the Beast, I've always been a fan of Gaston.  So the latest photo released by Walt Disney Imagineering has me pretty excited.
