    Disney has just announced that the Village Haus restaurant in Fantasyland will be turned into the "Red Rose Taverne" inspired by Beauty and the Beast.

    https://disneyparks.disney.go.com/b...xperiences-in-fantasyland-at-disneyland-park/

    Red Rose Taverne – This dining location at the northwest edge of Fantasyland will magically transform from Village Haus Restaurant into a lively French taverne, with delicious quick-service meals perfect for all ages! Adorned with beautiful murals depicting favorite scenes from Disney’s animated feature, “Beauty and the Beast,” and draped with inviting curtains, each room of Red Rose Taverne tells a different chapter of the tale as old as time. The menu will transform as well, featuring some of your favorite tastes with a French taverne-inspired twist, as well as new signature beverages. We’ll have details to share on these delicious additions soon – and yes, you will be able to try our own version of the Grey Stuff.

    Looks like it is just a limited time only thing to promote the new live action movie -- Village Haus is not going away!

    It says Gaston will be out and about in FL too. I wonder if that is what the advertisement was for.

    When I first read this I thought it was going to be something more elaborate and immersive. Oh well.

    Let me tell you, I was really impressed with how much of an oasis the Village Haus is. So low-key, with cozy booths for tired kids to fall asleep on at the end of the day. Quaint amber lighting everywhere, very grateful for it. I hope it goes back to normal when this is over.

    I'm a fan of the Village House, too.
    Love the design of the place...the great artwork on the walls inside, the ambiance, lighting, etc.
    The food is decent too if you order certain dishes ( cheddar and apple salad = yum ).
    There are several semi-private like cozy spots to be found there...and it's a swell spot to escape the mayhem of the crowds ( except lunchtime..stay away! ).

    It will be interesting to see how they manage to temporarily change the interior decor themed to 'Pinocchio' to 'Beauty & the Beast'.
    Also hoping this is indeed temporary.

    While I'm not a fan of the food at Village Haus, with the exception of the salad, I love the ambiance and the restaurant itself. I'm happy this is temporary.

    Looking forward to trying the food.

    Love the Village Haus...food is ok depending on our mood. Actually like what they are doing, think of it as a simplified version of Be Our Guest...with the Grey Stuff. Will have to give it a try.

    Why don't they just call it "Gaston's"? Come to think of it, why don't they permanently turn it into Gaston's? Unless, of course, they're still planning a B&B area (Beauty & the Beast, that is, not bed & breakfast in the park... although I'm sure that's a $1,000 upcharge concept they'll try sooner or later...)

    If they are going to retheme it how about making it the Snuggly Duckling from Tangled?

    This is a retheme in the lightest sense of the word - extremely temporary. Should be back to Pinocchio by summer unless it's so overwhelmingly popular plans need to be reevaluated.

    It always smells gross in the Village Haus. And the burgers are really bad. I haven't been there in years and avoid it like the plague. That won't change by hanging new curtains and calling it a "Taverne" for a couple months.

    So it is just a movie overlay. Got it.

    Village Haus and Hungry Bear were my favorite DL restaurants as a kid. What happens to the existing murals?

    How does that fit the theme of that area? You might as well put a Tangled dark ride in Carsland.
