    We are going on our honeymoon to Disney :) We booked Be our Guest as one of our dining experiences because I absolutely adore The Beast but now I read on groups online that the photo op with him is no longer happening. Is this the case or is it happening?

    Congratulations on your upcoming honeymoon to the Walt Disney World Resort! You’ve chosen the Most Magical Place on Earth for an amazing start to your happily ever after! Thanks for bringing your question about my favorite Disney Dining experience!

    The individual meet and greet that was previously offered at Be Our Guest Restaurant is no longer available. However, I am happy to share that the master of the castle, Beast himself, makes his rounds throughout Be Our Guest Restaurant during mealtimes! During my most recent visits (breakfast and dinner) Beast appeared at least three times in our dining area! He stays long enough for Guests to take photos from their seats. Guests are reminded to respectfully remain in their seats as the Beast makes his appearance. We were able to capture several photos from our table with Beast giving a friendly wave or bow in the background!

    Don’t forget to request your keepsake autograph card at the restaurant. These are a great souvenir! I keep my card framed in my office as a happy memory of the most amazing dining experience at the Walt Disney World Resort!

    Marta, be sure to inform the Cast Member at the welcome kiosk, as well as your server, that you are celebrating your honeymoon! The attendants at Beast’s castle will want to make your moment as magical as possible!

    Also, Marta, since you are celebrating your happily ever after, you might consider a Capture Your Moment photo session at Magic Kingdom Park! These photo sessions with a Disney PhotoPass photographer are the perfect way to remember your honeymoon. Your personal photographer will know the best locations to capture your memories!

    Happy Planning!
