The line for Gaston always seems like it is a mile long. We just happened to be strolling by Gaston's statue when he appeared. What luck! We stuck to the handler like glue (like Gaston needs a handler) and managed to land a spot 2nd in line.

Since Gaston's meet and greet location is not clearly marked -- at least as of February it wasn't -- my advice would be to check the times guide, grab a Lefou's Brew, hang out by Gaston's statue and then pounce on that handler when you see Gaston appear.

Good luck! (And someone please ask Gaston how he managed to survive that big fall.)

Too cute!

I love watching CM's interact with kids and guests. They are very good at what they do. :-)

How fun would it be if you could talk like that to everyone you meet!

Gaston was a highlight of our trip! I have a super cute picture of Gaston and my son flexing their muscles and Gaston is pushing my son's muscles down so he isn't flexing as big. He was definitely one of our favorite characters!

You're welcome. DH and I still watch the video almost daily. And I've never really thought of Gaston as evil. He's just perhaps, a little misunderstood (but I do get your meaning).

Great video! Thanks for sharing.

And I really would like to know how he survived the fall. I guess you just can't keep a good (looking) man down

Thanks. I fully agree; Gaston was so entertaining. He is almost like a standup comic up there, and he looks like he is having a blast!

When meeting Gaston, I think it is pretty common for the kids to be a little perplexed and for the parents to be tickled pink!
