    We will be traveling home in September (it has been too long) and we are trying to figure out if the Beast is resuming taking pictures at Be Our Guest. Have they resumed this awesome character experience or is he just making his rounds?

    Hello John,

    These past couple of years have certainly been different for many Walt Disney World fans, but rest assured the magic is still there, and your 'homecoming' celebration is going to be fantastic!

    I love Be Our Guest Restaurant! The detailing of the castle is amazing, and as soon as you step into The Grand Ballroom, you are transported into the classic film and expect to hear Mrs. Potts start singing at any moment. At this time, Beast walks through the castle and makes an appearance to his guests, but there is not a photo opportunity. Of course, it's possible that it could change between now and September. I recommend checking back as it gets closer to the time when you can start making dining reservations, 60 days prior to your vacation. Even if Beast is not available for photos at that time, you can still make plans to enjoy this magical dining experience and try the Grey Stuff, it's delicious!

    If you happen to be looking for another unique character dining experiences during your visit to Magic Kingdom, Story Book Dining at Artist Point is just a boat ride away at Disney's Wilderness Lodge. Not only will you get to enjoy a delicious meal, you'll get to meet Snow White, The Queen, Dopey, and Grumpy.

    Hope this helps. Have a magical day!
