    When will Gaston be coming back? As well as tink?

    Well greetings Nicole, I'd like to wish you a very Royal welcome to planDisney!

    Now as someone who's spent a considerable time on land and at sea hanging out with Character friends, it seems to me that you may be a bit of a Character Appearance connoisseur yourself! I remember when Tinker Bell could be met regularly, whether in Pixie Hollow or Town Square Theater, and guests could glimpse Gaston just outside of his own tavern - the manliest of manly places as they say. Rest assured, you're not the only guest who has been in search of this particular pair, so I spoke to several different Cast Members and Character friends across Magic Kingdom Park to see what I could find out for you, and this is what I learned:

    • Gaston has been known to surprise and delight guests from time to time outside of Gaston's Tavern, but there's no telling when he'll do so; the best that the Character Attendants could say is that "Gaston is a man of his own schedule" so at the current time there's no guarantee that you'll spot him anywhere in the future, but it's always good to keep an eye out just in case he pops by unannounced. (Which by the way, Belle mentioned he's very good at doing but she's only too glad that he's not lurking nearby at the present time!)
    Now speaking of the current Halloween season, there is actually one place where you might be able to spot Tinker Bell and Gaston together and that is during Mickey's "Boo-to-You" Halloween Parade at Mickey's Not-So-Scary Halloween Party! (Be sure to keep an eye out for Tinker Bell proudly perched atop treasure amongst the Pirate section of the parade, while Gaston brings up the rear with a unit of villains towards the end.) In the meantime, I recommend checking the Disney Parks Blog for any updates ahead of your next visit in case their scheduled meet and greets come back one day!

    Wishing you all the best on your future Character quests!
