Orlando's world famous Walt Disney World's Magic Kingdom is due to open the New Fantasyland on December 6th, bringing a wide variety of new foods and entertainment to the park including a new family-friendly roller coaster due to open in 2014.

When New Fantasyland opens in Walt Disney World's Magic Kingdom Dec. 6, LeFou's Brew - a frozen apple juice concoction named after a Beauty and the Beast character - may well go head to head with Butterbeer served in Universal's nearby The Wizarding World of Harry Potter.

It's already a hit with parkgoers who have attended the dress rehearsals. So is Beauty and the Beast's Gaston. Once a minor character in the theme park, this biceps-curling guy has turned into more of a rock star, challenging 5-year-olds to push-up contests and tromping around Gaston's Tavern, a quick-service restaurant featuring roasted pork shanks and chocolate croissants.
