    Hi daughter is crazy in love with the BEAST. We are unable to get reservations to Be our guest. She is going to be done up as Belle and we were wondering is there anywhere cool to get her pic taken with something Beast related? thanks

    Hi Dan,

    I love your daughter's spirit!

    In addition to greeting guests at the dinner service at the Be Our Guest restaurant, the Beast often greets guests as part of the Belle greeting near the France pavilion at Epcot. His visit times are variable. My suggestion is for you to stop at a park guest relations office when you arrive at Walt Disney World. Ask them to call the "character hotline" for you. The hotline can tell them exactly where/when any specific character (like the Beast) will be appearing at the time of your visit.

    If you want some good photo opportunities, you may want to visit Be Our Guest during lunch. At lunch, BOG is configured as a quick service venue. Reservations are not required. The Beast will not be there, but you can take photos inside. Check the Times Guide when you arrive. BOG may open for lunch as early as 10:00am. The earlier you go, the less wait you will encounter.

    You could also have your daughter pose outside Gaston's Tavern in the Magic Kingdom New Fantasyland area. There's a silly statue of Gaston there which could make for amusing photos. She could also meet Gaston himself there, which might be great fun.

    Good luck with your planning. Please let us know what else we can do to help.
