Gaston’s Tavern Fountain Drained at Magic Kingdom

    While visiting Magic Kingdom earlier, we noticed that the fountain in front of Gaston’s Tavern has been drained. Disney World has not announced a refurbishment of the fountain, but it certainly looks like it could use a bit of a touchup. Here’s a look.

    Looking inside, we can see an established water line.

    Here’s a look at the base of the statue where there are some noticeable water marks.

    The equipment is still inside the fountain, so it could be refilled overnight and back to normal tomorrow without a refurbishment just as easily.

    Here’s a look at the plaque and statue of Gaston and LeFou. The plaque notes that Gaston gifted the fountain of himself and reads:

    Tribute to Gaston

    An Extravagantly Generous Gift to the humble People of My Village

    From Me, Gaston

    Gaston’s Tavern is a quick-service location in Fantasyland that serves snacks like The Grey Stuff Cupcake, a hearty cinnamon roll, and sandwiches. If you’re looking for a drink, LeFou’s Brew is a popular option that consists of Frozen Apple Juice with a hint of Toasted Marshmallow.
