I was there in December and used it. Maybe it closed since then?

It was mostly closed when we were there, but open when it got really busy, and at least when we were there only used as an exit from NFL. We were going from Dumbo to Under the Sea and it was so frustrating to have them send us all the way around.

It was closed when we were there, the second week of December. It was crazy congested down there by the Little Mermaid. It will be nice when it is open all the time!

It was closed in January over marathon weekend. It really stunk to have to walk all the way around to get to Dumbo from LM, but I think they are using it for construction access for the Mine Train.

We were there January 6th (or 9th, can't remember) and were able to walk straight from Under the Sea to Dumbo in the morning/lunch, but by afternoon they had closed it off.

I haven't been able to find confirmation. I am assuming Gastons drew the line at LeFous Brew and will remain a Dry theme park? Can anyone confirm this? A co-worker is planning to head down and had asked me yesterday.

No alcohol at Gaston's Tavern. But they do now serve beer and wine at dinner at Be Our Guest restaurant right around the corner from there.

LeFou's Brew isn't alcoholic, it's apple juice.

Here's the description from AllEars
LeFou's Brew $9.99
Frozen apple juice with a hint of toasted marshmallow and topped with all-natural passion fruit-mango foam, served in a souvenir stein or goblet

One other point, you have to be eating there (is it only dinner?) and you can't take it out.

You can also get the "brew" in a regular cup for less $ and you get more. Just FYI, not really related to the discussion.

Good to know, though! I've seen the stein, it's not very usable for future use.

DH's friends at work just got back and raved about the tavern...the pork shank and brew...when we were there DH wanted nothing to do with it...now he has asked us to eat lunch there on our fall trip (if we go...fingers crossed!)

Sadly I have a passionfruit allergy so will not be able to purchase the drink, I do think it's a shame Disney didn't create alternative drinks for the Brew...

I wonder if you could ask for it without the foam? From the pictures I've seen they just put the foam on top of the "brew." I hope you'll be able to try it!
