    My little princess loves The Beast. Is there anywhere that she can meet him? Not just watch him at Hollywood Studios or see him in the parade but actually get her picture taken with him?

    Welcome to Disney Parks Moms Panel, Denise!

    Oh, your little princess is as clever as Belle; there is something sweet...and almost kind...about Beast.

    While your little one will be able to catch a glimpse of Beast at Magic Kingdom Park's Disney Festival of Fantasy Parade and enjoy watching that tale as old as time at Beauty and the Beast - Live on Stage at Disney's Hollywood Studios, the very best opportunity for a most beastly experience is by enjoying a delicious dinner at Magic Kingdom Park's Be Our Guest Restaurant.

    Dining in the enchanted castle is quite a treat, with The Grand Ballroom taking center stage. (Be sure to point out that it's "snowing" outside when looking out those lovely windows!) In The Castle Gallery, a smaller dining room set off to the right, catch a glimpse of Belle and Beast's dancing figures. Should you dare to enter The West Wing, you'll find a darker room where a magical portrait of The Prince transforms from time to time...and the enchanted rose sits suspended in its magical dome. (Wherever you dine, be sure to try the grey stuff. It really is delicious.) Exclusively at dinner, Beast may greet Guests in his study, the perfect backdrop for a most memorable photo together.

    While the real Beast does not make an appearance at Enchanted Tales with Belle, also in Magic Kingdom Park, your little princess may also enjoy watching a retelling of Belle and Beast's story, narrated by Belle herself. Someone in the audience will be selected to portray Beast, too. Once the country cottage is transformed into Beast's library, your little Belle will be delighted.

    For a bit of fun, have your Beast fan Meet Gaston near His Tavern in Magic Kingdom Park's Fantasyland. Be sure to mention how much she loves Beast...you are likely to get a strong reaction!

    Of course, all character appearances are subject to change, so check the My Disney Experience mobile app for updated information.

    Have so much fun planning your visit to The Most Magical Place on Earth, Denise! Be sure to send us more questions as you think of them, too. We love to help!
