    I have tickets to attend Mickeys NSSHP on Sunday 17th September. I also have dinner reservations at Be Our Guest resturant that night - does anyone know if the beast will be available to meet that night in his library because it is the party?

    Trick or Treat, Michaela! Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel.

    My family is also attending Mickey's Not So Scary Halloween Party this year and(since great minds think alike), we also have Advanced Dining Reservations for Be Our Guest for dinner.

    I have always presumed that Beast would never leave his Castle on a night when he was supposed to entertain his guests
    as that would be just "beastly" manners. Every time that I have had dinner at Be Our Guest Restaurant, we have been able to see the big guy and pose for a few pictures. However, the page dedicated for Be Our Guest does mention that this is not a set Character Dining Experience.

    Unlike dining experience like Chef Mickey's and Cinderella's Royal Table, Beast does not make the rounds to every Guest's table. You have to seek him out since he just loves the way the light in his portrait studio makes his fur shimmer. In addition, there have been some instances when Beast has not made an appearance at all.

    While the norm is to come prepared to shake paws with the Master of the House, his showing is subject to change without notice and is not guaranteed as part of your dining experience.

    If he doesn't show, be sure to stop by the Enchanted Tales with Belle attraction next to Be Our Guest Restaurant where Belle is constantly on the lookout for little ones to play the part.

    Bon Appétit!
