    My 3yr old has his heart set on seeing the Beast. I found a BOG dinner ADR during our MNSSHP night specifically so he can meet the Beast after nothing else opened up. Will he be there? I'd hate to use so much party time if Beast isn't present. Thank you!

    Hi Kimberly! Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel.

    Be Our Guest Restaurant is one of my favorite places to dine! When I walk inside the atmosphere and decoration seem so real, I literally feel as if I stepped into the Beauty and the Beast movie. I also have always been really impressed with the food selection. When I first looked at the menu; I was a bit intimidated because the food sounded so fancy, but when I read each description I have really enjoyed each entrée that I have tried.

    Be Our Guest Restaurant is not a character meal. Therefore there is no guarantee that the Beast will be there to meet guests during the dinner hour. I will say however that he is often there posing for pictures with excited guests and he sometimes can be seen strolling through his dining rooms. It is really important to remember however that there is a chance that he may not be there during your reservation. I would feel awful if your heart wasn’t truly set on dining there and you ended up not being able to meet the Beast. I wouldn’t want you to feel like you wasted valuable time during Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party. I would suggest sitting down as a family and really prioritizing what is most important for all of you and if you are willing to take the risk of not being able to meet the Beast.

    Whatever you decide, I am hoping that you have an incredible family vacation filled with memories that will last a lifetime! Please come back with any vacation planning questions! We love helping guests just like you!
