    Is the Beast still going to be at Dinner at Be Our Guest come Janurary 2018? I booked a reservation & in my confirmation email I received one of the bullet points was "no characters will be available during this time"

    Bonjour, Hope! Bienvenue to the Disney Parks Moms Panel!

    Be Our Guest Restaurant will transport you to the Beast’s Castle to dine on delicious French cuisine- don’t believe me? Ask the dishes! This Advanced Dining Reservation is one of the most difficult to acquire in all of Walt Disney World Resort, so congratulations on snagging it! I have dined here multiple times just because I like to watch the snow fall outside of the main ballroom, it really is magical!

    You are correct that the fine print states that “no characters will be present” but I remember it saying that for my dinner reservation in the past yet, my friend the Beast was still present. I believe the fine print is referring to the fact that the Beast does not circulate from table to table like at other Disney Character dining experiences, but rather stays in a location where Guests can visit with him before, after, or during their meals. Keep in mind that the Beast only makes appearances during dinner and not during breakfast or lunch.

    I hope this answers your question and bon appétit!
