Character Magic: Gaston Being…Well, Gaston

Welcome back for another segment of Character Magic: Making Memories in the Park, or for a shorter version, Disney Characters in Character!  If either title of the series isn’t obvious enough, this series deals with cast members portraying beloved Disney characters and doing a fine job of it, keeping in character while creating memorable magic for guests.  So far, I’ve only shared with you a sweet video of Snow White.

Today, I’m here to share with you a video of Disney’s most self-centered villain.

Gaston.

Video from YouTube.

I absolutely love how this cast member approached his character.  He’s got the whole arrogant vain attitude we expect from Gaston, just toned down a bit, and he even acts afraid of the Beast.  I especially enjoyed the fact that he both quotes from his movie but also says things that his character would say just not from the movie.  Like the Walt Disney World guests in the video, I was laughing or chuckling at nearly everything he said.

My favorite line has to be: “I’m not afraid of that Beast, I just have other things I need to do.”

See ya all real soon!

(PS – is it just me, or do Gaston’s gloves remind you of dishwashing gloves?  That’s always bugged me about his Park costume.)
