Review by Mark Hickson:
How can a roasted Pork Shank not be good? Well, fear not, Disney made it even better! Gaston’s Tavern at Disney World’s Magic Kingdom gives you the ultimate in medieval dining. This dinner is even better than the turkey leg that you can can get at Disneyland’s food carts. Combine it with LeFou’s Brew and a Cinnamon Roll to have a hearty and tasty lunch.
The shank is cooked until the meat falls off the bone. It has a slightly seasoned crust and was found to be moist and very tasty. Named after Gaston’s sidekick, the “brew” is a no-sugar added frozen apple juice with a hint of toasted marshmallow, and is topped with a very un-medieval, all-natural passion fruit-mango foam. Also the much beloved Cinnamon Rolls that you’ve enjoyed at the Main Street Bakery can now found at the Tavern but with a slightly maple flavor!
I asked some guests what they thought about this rustic culinary combination. Everyone seemed thoroughly pleased and several said that they came back during their visit to have some more!
