    Does Gaston still make appearances and do meet and greets at Gastons Tavern? I never see him on the characters drop down menu when I look and I can't seem to find any information online that he doesn't do it anymore.

    Hiya Hailey,

    Welcome to planDisney! No one answers questions like a planDisney panelist! Thank you for your question about the “pure paragon” himself, Gaston. I’ve seen him in person before, and I hate to admit it, but “as a specimen, yes,” he’s intimidating.

    Now I hate to see you “down in the dumps,” Hailey, so let’s see if we can find him. Unfortunately, Gaston has been spending an extreme amount of time brooding over Belle’s public humiliation, so while he is out and about, sometimes he doesn’t keep a set schedule for his appearances. He mostly appears at Gaston’s Tavern sporadically when he needs an ego boost. He also can be spotted in parades in Magic Kingdom Park and at Disney’s Hollywood Studios in Beauty and The Beast - Live on Stage. I asked one of his fans (an adoring Cast Member), and they suggested that you check the My Disney Experience mobile app when you are at Magic Kingdom Park. You never know; Gaston may grace us all with his presence so we can give him “five hurrahs.”

    I wish I could be more helpful, Hailey. I’ll keep my fingers crossed that Gaston is feeling more up to keeping a schedule by your visit in November. Please come back and see us if you need anything else.

    Happy Planning,

    Ashley F.
