Definitely seems like event currency is harder to come by than in previous events. I don't have the creperie, but I do have Mrs. Potts and Chip, as well as the parade float, BOG restaurant, and the croissant shop from the trophy event, so it seems like I should have a lot more event currency. No idea how someone who didn't spend gems on premium stuff could have even afforded to welcome Belle!
Welcoming Belle now- she should be done by the time I get home from work. I've only been leveling up my characters as needed and was worried I might be falling behind, but it seems that was a good idea after hearing about the lack of event currency. I should be able to build Gaston's tavern with no problem (although I will go broke doing it).

Belle will be finished in 1.5 hours but I only have 11,000 in currency I guess that is what I get for leveling up my characters. It'll be awhile before I can get the tavern
Event currency is now my frustration. I have 18,331 but if I buy Gaston's Tavern as soon as I can there goes all my currency. The struggle is real...
From what you are all saying, I guess the silver lining to my game taking forever with the Belle item drops is that game currency doesn't seem to be an issue for me (yet). Sending out those characters over and over again paid off. I have Belle and the Tavern now and still have 20K left over. Maybe all those tedious 60 min tasks to get the roses helped with the currency.
Ugh one more ear hat for Belle. Hopefully in less than 2 hrs I'll have it.
I have belle and the tavern. Today I got back up to 8000 currency from nothing. I'm a little concerned how much gaston and the costumes are going to be. Plus getting up to 80k for the 40gems after. I'm definitely not doing anymore character upgrades lol.
I just leveled up Belle to level 2 and I only have 12,800 in currency. This may be the first event that I don't finish, which will piss me off. If I don't get Gaston, I wouldn't have bothered buying Chip and Mrs. Potts. I only bought them so I could have a complete collection of beauty and the beast characters
I can assure you that with all of the land spaces available currently, I have fit in every single attraction, including the gem ones and all the newest ones, 1-2 of every type of concession stand, and at least 25-30 decorations, generally 2 of each type, and I still have enough space to place another 10 concession stands or decorations, though no more attractions unless they are the size of Mickey's house. I'm not crazy about the layout, but I have all of toon town together, then grouped all my mulan, frozen, and princess stuff together, and all the spooky stuff together. Most of the Incredibles is together and all the pirate stuff is together. The only thing I couldn't fit together whatsoever was the toy story and monster's inc. stuff because I was always short by 1-2 grid squares. If anyone knows how to take a screenshot of the game from a tablet and then upload to a laptop, I can post photos.
This event IS different with the event currency. In the past we usually had 4-6 characters with 1-10 min tasks that dropped currency. This event we only have 2, and both of them are needed for string, so unless your rose count is high, there is little time to actually use them to farm currency. I'm guessing the developers caught on to the fact that people stopped leveling up to get currency to get free gems. With this new balance, they'll have to give out less than half the gems they did previously. As of right now I've got beast at level 6, cogsworth, lumiere, and mrs. potts at 5, chip and belle at 4. I was going to try to level them up again, but with only 8,700K, I'm focusing on gathering as many tokens, bags, and strings as I can before I can battle gaston for the first time, since I know we'll need event currency for both of the batb costumes and gaston. Once bags and strings are maxed out, while I'm battling gaston, I plan on using mickey and goofy to free the birds and up my rose count, then gradually fill bags and strings with them and jessie again. Hoping to have at least 20K currency by the time gaston and the costumes unlock so I can purchase them as soon as possible.
Watching everyone try to stop Gaston is really entertaining
Second Round with Gaston starts after you clear more dishes. It's 24 - 2 hr each that you can again use all 6 for. I feel like I'm going to have 5 full days of leveling up before the costumes even start.
Let the fun begin. Just got back from vacation. Managed to keep up on my IOS game for the most part. I have had a terrible drop rate for Belle, but she is being Welcomed right now (2 hrs left). And I have 25,000 event currency. Had the gems for Mrs Potts but still need 40 more for Chip, and then the parade float. I am confident I will get Chip with the 16 gem bonus for completing the first BatB group, not so sure about the float.
But since I've been gone, I am just starting the tasks in my Windows game and working on collecting Beast tokens. I also missed the week of prizes. We'll see how far I can get in 13 days. This game I had more gems, so I am 1 gem away from having enough for Chip even after buying Mrs Potts, but I need to complete more tasks before he is available.
But for now I need to go to bed. My day started at 4AM London time, which was 10PM my local time, and it's currently 7:30. So I've been up 22.5 hrs. So I'm not going to get very far tonight.
Is anyone else petrified that Gaston will cost 50,000 and need 147 roses to welcome ?
147? That seems unlikely. I can handle the 50K since I've already got 36K towards it.
Finally welcoming Belle a few hours to go. And I am so glad I knew it would take some time from you all!
I think the Happiness events are dumb. I always have between 75% and 99% on the highest level and yet I am in something like 500th place. Furthermore, when I got the free happiness gift I was at 99%. Sigh.
As for Gaston, well who knows. I bought Chip etc but my Android phone didn't get the update until late in the day if day 1... So it's been weird watching how everyone else is two days ahead.
But this game still makes me smile and is a good stress reducer.
Personally I think the tough part in all of this will be the costumes. Not looking forward to that part of the event, but it looks like they aren't optional if you want Gaston.
Happiness events have nothing to do with your happiness percentage, they are based solely on how many smilies you can collect. Even if your happiness is at 99% ecstatic, you should still keep collecting them if you want to progress on the leaderboard.
@mmmears I agree about the costumes,
They probably will be the hardest part of this event. I am hoping that my 4 platinum and 2 gold chests will give me fabric, as I have no use for them for anything else right now.
