    Good evening! My family and I will be traveling to Disney in November. We purchased tickets to MVMCP, and are planning to make reservations for Be our Guest restaurant. Will the Beast be present and how long does it typically take to eat there? Thanks.

    Greetings and welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Sharon!

    Walt Disney World Resort is filled with many festivities and events during your scheduled visit and I am thrilled to hear you’ll be participating in Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party at Magic Kingdom Park!

    Sharon, your planning is most impressive in considering our incredible Be Our Guest Restaurant and if I may, take the liberty to suggest an early dinner reservation? This way you can enter Magic Kingdom Park using your special event party ticket a couple of hours before your event is set to begin, enjoy a leisurely dinner, quick meet and memorable photo with Beast. Then, you’ll be on time for the merriment of Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party and not miss a thing.  

    I hope you make time to explore the magnificent, breathtaking land, Pandora – The World of Avatar at Disney’s Animal Kingdom Theme Park. Words cannot describe the scenery immersing you in the story, or the unique rides that leave you with memories like no other.

    Sharon, please customize all your plans with My Disney Experience and keep abreast of all Walt Disney World Resort News in preparation for your visit.

    Best Disney Dishes and Holiday Wishes!
