On February 24, Disneyland® Park welcomed the Red Rose Taverne, a Beauty and the Beast-themed eatery coinciding with the release of the live-action Disney film on March 17.
Early reports indicate the food is delicious, but the lines are lengthy as everyone is excited by a brand new eatery themed around such a popular Disney film.
Located in the former ‘Village Haus’ restaurant in Fantasyland, the quick service Red Rose Taverne features an entirely new menu based on Belle and her friends. Enjoy brand new offerings like the vegetarian Enchanted Cauliflower Sandwich, featuring a grilled cauliflower steak, spicy lime aioli, tempura-battered green beans, lettuce and tomato on a toasted roll.
Most exciting to me? The Grey Stuff finally arrives at Disneyland Park! While it’s not exactly the same Grey Stuff offered at Be Our Guest restaurant at Walt Disney World® Resort, Disneyland Park guests can now try the Grey Stuff Gateau – a white chocolate mousse and red velvet cake with a sweet raspberry center.
For any poutine fans, the classic Canadian dish makes its Disneyland Park debut. The Red Rose Taverne offers both a classic Slow-Cooked Beef Poutine and a Poutine Flatbread.
While they have not yet announced a closing date, Disneyland Park says that Red Rose Taverne is here for a limited time only, so you should come in and be their guest soon. You can view the complete menu at the Disney Park Blog

So you think you’ve done everything Disney. You’ve been to Walt Disney World® Resort, you’ve been to Disneyland ®Resort, you’ve been on the Disney Cruise Line. Heck, you’ve even been to Aulani, A Disney Resort & Spa in Ko Olina, Hawai‘i. But have you experienced a true hidden Disney gem— a guided vacation from Adventures by Disney®?
Adventures by Disney brings that legendary level of Disney service that you’ve come to know and love to guided vacations around the world, offering dozens of itineraries on six continents. AbD prides itself on creating culturally-immersive, once-in-a-lifetime experiences.
Every facet of your adventure is led by Disney-trained Adventure Guides, and almost every aspect of an AbD trip is included in the cost— airport pick-up, most meals, lodging at world-class accommodations, ground or air transportation to all your stops, and tickets & admission to local attractions. Your Adventure Guides arrange off-the-beaten path experiences unique to your destination. From the moment you arrive at the airport to the moment you leave, your Disney-trained Adventure Guides are there to make your vacation as smooth and trouble-free as possible.
There truly is an AbD vacation for everyone, whether you want to go behind the scenes at Disneyland on the Disneyland Resort and Southern California itinerary, or visit the mystical Galapagos Islands on the Ecuador: Amazon and Galapagos Islands itinerary.
Feel like visiting the real-life inspiration for Frozen’s Arendelle? AbD’s Norway itinerary takes you there. Ever dream of an African safari? AbD’s South African itinerary includes that and much more. Want a private VIP tour of the Vatican Museum? Check out AbD's Italy itinerary. Adventures by Disney leverages Disney's business holdings to allow experiences not readily available to the public, like private screenings at LucasFilm headquarters on the San Francisco Long Weekend itinerary or Backstage VIP access at Good Morning America on the NYC Long Weekend itinerary.
AbD also recently added amazing luxury all-inclusive river cruises down Europe’s Rhine and Danube. For the ultimate cruise experience, pair a Disney Cruise Line itinerary with excursions hosted by AbD. You can add on AbD-hosted excursion packages to many of the Disney Cruise Line European itineraries.
For family members of all ages, AbD Adventure Guides have plenty of activities that engage kids and teenagers-- or, if you prefer an adults-only group, AbD offers many adults-only itineraries. AbD trips are routinely some of the highest-rated vacation experiences in their class; in 2015, AbD took the number one spot for the 'adventure' category for tour operators in Travel Weekly's Readers Choice Awards.
