Is This the New Turkey Leg at Magic Kingdom Park?

Inside Gaston’s Tavern in New Fantasyland at Magic Kingdom Park

Just before soft opening, Gaston’s Tavern in New Fantasyland has expanded its menu beyond those gooey cinnamon rolls (and cold milk) – they’ve added a hefty pork shank that may become just as popular as the ubiquitous turkey legs that theme park guests devour with glee.

The pork shank goes for $7.99.

Also on the menu at Gaston’s Tavern are chocolate croissants, fresh fruit and veggies, hummus and drinks, including Le Fou’s Brew, a frozen apple juice with a hint of toasted marshmallow, topped with all-natural passion fruit-mango foam in a souvenir goblet.

What’s your pick for a new Magic Kingdom Park favorite: warm cinnamon rolls or pork shank?

I see the dining plan logo beside the roasted pork shank. Will that item use one snack credit? I sure hope so…am looking forward to trying this!

I will buy the pork shank 1000 times more than I ever did the turkey leg. If this thing tastes nearly as good as it looks, this thing is going to be responsible for at least 5 lbs of weight gain per trip.
Thank you for adding something worthy of Gaston to his eponymous tavern.

Does that logo next to it indicate it can be purchased as a snack on the Disney Dining Plan?

Looks like fun! Is that the snack credit symbol listed next to most of the menu items? Thanks!

“Le Fou’s Brew, a frozen apple juice with a hint of toasted marshmallow, topped with all-natural passion fruit-mango foam in a souvenir goblet.”

You had me at frozen apple juice!

If it’s like the turkey leg, it will count as a QS credit and you’ll get a side with it (maybe fruit or veg; it’s a bag of chips w/ the turkey leg) and a drink. Just my first thoughts on the matter but I would LOVE it if it was only a snack credit!

The pork shank is tugging at my heart strings. I can see myself strolling along, pork shank in one hand, cinnamon roll in the other with a smile ear to ear!

Can we get the cinnamon roll icing on the pork shank?

I would guess the pork shank will be a quick service credit and not a snack credit on the dining plan based on the cost. Snacks typically are $4 & under so I doubt they’d include it as a snack option. I wish they would though!!

I am actually more excited about Le Fou’s Brew! Sounds delicious.

Diane on October 12th, 2012 at 12:25 pm

I’m going with the warm cinnamon rolls.. And a LeFou’s brew ;-)

And any idea when the soft opening is???

12

Scott from IL on October 12th, 2012 at 12:29 pm

Soft opening was today. There are guests walking around in there as we speak.

Caitlin on October 12th, 2012 at 12:40 pm

Pam, there is a snack credit logo next to $7.99 pork shank. Can that really be a snack credit?

14

Mike on October 12th, 2012 at 1:13 pm

oh my, will disneyland serve pork shank?!?!!?

15

Lisa from ON on October 12th, 2012 at 1:41 pm

My husband will be thrilled. He’s allergic to turkey. I can’t wait to try as well and I’m sure it will be a big hit if it really does count as a snack credit. Wow.

Echo on October 12th, 2012 at 2:14 pm

This is great! My sons both have multiple allergies, and I am so pleased to see a nice variety of simple options offered that could potentially suit many different special dietary needs. Way to go Disney!

Michelle on October 12th, 2012 at 4:12 pm

Can’t wait to wash some warm cinnamon rolls down with a stein of Le Fou’s Brew!

David from NJ on October 12th, 2012 at 5:57 pm

Hey Michael,I will have to go you one better!! You can have your shank and roll, I gotta have a pork shank in one hand and turkey leg in the other. As a matter of fact, I will be doing that when we are there next week!! Boney appytite to all and to all a good shank!

Irene on October 12th, 2012 at 6:03 pm

I just came back from the Kingdom and the pork shank was awesome!!!
I will always choose it over the turkey leg, because I always felt the turkey leg was a tad too salty for my taste. The shank came with one end wrapped, so you can hold it up just like the turkey leg. I washed it down with LeFou’s brew which I loved. Chose the stein with the Beast’s picture on one side, and Gaston’s picture on the other side. The other choice for a souvenir cup was Belle’s goblet. It was very busy today because Be Our Guest was not open, and I can’t wait to go back after it’s open!

YUM! Will this be brought to DLR in some what? I’d love to chow down on a piece of pork.

Albert on October 12th, 2012 at 8:23 pm

*way? Oops…

22

Barry from BC on October 12th, 2012 at 8:48 pm

Is this a roasted pork shank or a ham shank? (i.e. the way the turkey legs taste like hame rather than turkey)

23

Allie on October 12th, 2012 at 9:59 pm

Lol! Who’s gonna buy veggies when you can have a cinnamon roll or a giant pork leg?

24

Hector from FL on October 13th, 2012 at 10:14 am

OMG! that pork shank is going to be the bomb! I already taste it Yummie.

Annmarie from NC on October 14th, 2012 at 3:38 pm

I want the chocolate croissant!! I did not try the apple brew at Carsland this summer, but will try the Le Fou’s brew on my next trip!

26

Allie on October 14th, 2012 at 4:53 pm

Those cinnamon rolls sound great! :) I can’t wait to try one, along with the Le Fou’s Brew.

Tried LeFou’s Brew two nights ago at the Halloween Party. It was quite tasty, but VERY sweet!
