The live-action retelling of Disney’s 1991 animated classic is now playing in theaters.  

In celebration, fans can enjoy several “Beauty and the Beast” related experiences at Walt Disney World.

Here’s a list of what’s available at the parks and Disney Springs.

Magic Kingdom

Be Our Guest Restaurant

Enjoy breakfast, lunch or dinner at “Beauty and the Beast” themed eatery located inside Fantasyland.

You can dine inside one of three areas inspired by Beast’s castle—the Grand Ballroom, the West Wing and the Rose Gallery.  And yes, you can even try the “grey stuff.” We hear it’s delicious.

Enchanted Tales with Belle

Join Belle and Lumiere for an interactive character meet-and-greet. Guests are given parts to help reenact the story of Beauty and the Beast.

Gaston’s Tavern

Snacks and beverages are served inside this counter-service location dedicated to the one-and-only Gaston. Hunting trophies and keepsakes fill the tavern. Menu items include pastries, fruit cups and LeFou’s brew, a frozen apple juice drink.

There’s also a large, bronze statue of Gaston outside.

Hollywood Studios

Beauty and the Beast Live on Stage!

Enjoy a 25-miunute Broadway-style show featuring Belle, Beast, Gaston and other memorable characters. The show includes select scenes and music from the 1991 animated movie. Performances are held multiple times each day at the Theater of the Stars.

“Beauty and the Beast” sneak peek

For now, you can check out an eight-minute preview of the new movie inside the One Man’s Dream attraction. Costumes and props are also on display.


Belle topiary

If you happen to stop by the Epcot International Flower and Garden Festival, look for the Belle and Beast topiaries. Both are located in the France pavilion. This version of Belle actually includes facial features to make her look more like the character from the movie. Cogsworth and Lumiere topiaries are nearby.
