    We are excited about our first DW trip next week! We have a reservation to Be Our Guest on a Friday at 5. I noticed our confirmation email said characters are not available at that time. Is that correct or is there a chance of seeing The Beast?

    Hi Elaina!

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel. When you visit Be Our Guest Restaurant, I must recommend you try the grey stuff, it's delicious!

    Your confirmation email will state this since Be Our Guest is not a true Character Dining Experience. Traditionally at a Character Dining, there are a handful of characters that will walk around, stop and have a chat with you at your table and all sorts of fun hi-jinx that usually ensue! At Be Our Guest, patrons of dinner at the Beast's Castle can sometimes spot him stalking around the castle and after their meal for a quick photo opportunity. This is not a guarantee and is always subject to change, but I think there is a fairly good chance you'll be able to meet him during your dinner. He usually makes the rounds approximately every half hour, so if he isn't there immediately don't fret. 

    Please let us know if you have any other questions and I hope you have a magical time at dinner!
