    Hello, Just wondering if the Beast is available for a photo opportunity like he used to be pre-COVID at Be Our Guest? Thanks

    Bonjour Melissa!

    Thank you for sending us this magical question, and welcome to planDisney! I am so excited for you to be visiting the castle on your next visit to the Walt Disney World Resort, and I cannot wait for you to experience its enchantment. Make sure to try the grey stuff - I heard it's delicious!

    Unfortunately, character meet and greets are not yet back to their original form at Be Our Guest, but this does not mean that you will not be able to see the Beast welcoming his guests in the castle! Although the Beast only walked around the different rooms on my last visit, I still recommend you keep an eye out for further updates. Indeed, the Walt Disney World Resort announced back at the beginning of the pandemic that they would use a phased reopening approach, so updated information about such offerings are still coming out. To have the latest information about the theme parks, visit the Disney Parks Blog and the Walt Disney World website in the time leading up to your trip! 

    If you like meeting your favourite characters, though, Hakuna Matata! Don't worry, Melissa, as there are plenty of opportunities for you to do so throughout Magic Kingdom Park and the other theme parks. I always love meeting the princesses at the Princess Fairytale Hall and Merida near Fantasyland and Tomorrowland. In my opinion, however, no trip is complete without a Mickey hug, so make sure to stop by the Town Square Theatre to meet Mickey and Minnie. Magic Kingdom Park also offers many other character experiences in the form of shows, parades and cavalcades, so be sure to download the My Disney Experience mobile app to know when these offerings are scheduled!

    I hope this was helpful, Melissa, and that you have the best day ever on your next Disney vacation. If you have any other questions, don't hesitate to reach back out. You will always be our guest here at planDisney!

    Have a magical day,
