    We're making our 1st trip to WDW in June. How early do you think we would need to be in line for lunch at the Beast's Castle? We all watched Beauty & the Beast hundreds of times when the kids were young so that is kinda a must-do while we are there. Th

    Hi Tracy!

    A first trip to Disney World is super exciting and it will be here before you know it!  Be sure you pick up "1st Visit" Buttons for each of you at any theme park Guest Relations location.  They make great free souvenEARs!

    Putting a napkin around your neck and putting their service to the test at the new Be Our Guest Restaurant should absolutely be a must do for you since you're big fans of the movie. You won't be disappointed.  They are currently serving lunch from 10:30 a.m. - 2:30 p.m. Guests will start lining up at least 30 minutes prior to opening if not earlier.  We actually found that we would have had less of a wait if we would have waited until after the initial rush was over and went a little later.  A Cast Member suggested around the 1:30 p.m. range.  I will say that I didn't mind the wait though. The area is just beautiful and we were able to get some great pictures while we waited.

    Be sure to also catch Beauty and the Beast - Live on Stage at Disney's Hollywood Studios during your trip. It is an excellent performance and will bring back a lot of memories for you.

    Wishing you minnie magical memories :-) Allison
