    Hello, I understand that at Dinner time at Be Our Guest, the Beast walks around to greet his guests, however I had heard that you can meet and greet him inside his parlor. I know this changed in 2019 due to the pandemic but has it returned?

    Bonjour, Kaitlyn! Be Our Guest Restaurant is my favorite Disney Dining experience at the Walt Disney World Resort! There is nothing quite as special as dining in the castle where two classic Disney characters shared their “happily ever after!”

    Be Our Guest Restaurant serves an amazing lunch and dinner. The master of the castle makes his rounds throughout the castle throughout both mealtimes. He strolls through all three dining rooms – the Grand Ballroom, the West Wing, and the Rose Gallery – multiple times during lunch and dinner! The Beast will pause long enough to take photos with him in the background. 

    There is not an opportunity for Guests to hold a “meet and greet” with the Beast as he is quite busy tending to all his royal duties throughout the castle. At the end of your meal, be sure to request an autograph card. This is a great souvenir! The card includes castle artwork on both sides along with the Beast’s autograph. I keep mine framed in my office at work! Character autograph cards are available at other Disney Character Dining locations as well!

    Enjoy a delicious meal along with seeing the Beast during your visit to Be Our Guest Restaurant! And, be sure to try the "grey stuff!" It truly is delicious!

    Dreams do come true!
