Beauty and the Beast Restaurant


#1

I had breakfast this morning, with visiting friends who live near WDW. They are FL Annual Pass holders and use them regularly.

They told me this morning, that they have received information in the mail recently, that said that the Beauty and the Beast Restaurant will be opening very soon. I asked them if they were sure about it and they said yes, that’s what it said, opening soon.

I don’t think over the Holiday’s would be considered soon. Do you think there is a soft opening for FL residents only coming up? Even so it couldn’t be THIS far ahead of the opening. They were telling me to come home and look online to make reservations. Of course it’s not accepting reservations for August.

Wonder what’s up? :confused:

Hopefully it will open soon for all the summer travelers.

I would love to celebrate my birthday there during our trip in August, however I’m pretty sure that if the prediction is for the holiday season…August is wayyyy ahead of schedule.

I’m a FL Passholder and I have received nothing like the news they received…


#5

Well that’s strange…these folks are fanatics, and use their passes fairly often…but I have no idea why they would receive this information and not you…they are going back to FL today or I would ask for more details about the info—if it’s a newsletter or what…

The only correspondence I get is this…

It’s the essence of any great fairy tale. You
follow a path through an enchanted forest past
lush landscapes, rushing waterfalls and quaint
cottages. In the distance lies a magnificent castle.
And throughout your journey, magical experiences
unfold around every corner.
Nowhere does this fairy tale aesthetic come to
life more vividly than in Enchanted Forest, the
next phase of New Fantasyland® set to open
over the 2012 holiday season. Here’s a preview of
some of the magical secrets you’ll discover.
On your way to enjoy the music and merriment
of Under The Sea~Journey of The Little
Mermaid in Prince Eric’s castle, you’ll notice a
tip of the hat to a previous resident of this Magic
Kingdom® spot hidden in the rocky coast. Look
closely and you’ll see that Walt Disney Imagineers
have sculpted a miniature replica of the Nautilus
sub from 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea.
Elsewhere, Maurice’s workshop becomes a
magical portal into Belle’s world with Enchanted
Tales with Belle, where the lovely princess
retells the tale of Beauty and the Beast with a little
help from her audience and her old friend Lumière.
Later, as you enter the Beast’s Castle, you won’t
be able to miss the giant minotaurs that seem to
hold the arched ceiling aloft. Magnificent works
of art and gorgeous stained glass windows were
especially created for Walt Disney Imagineering.
And while in Beast’s Castle, you can enjoy Quickservice
dining by day and Table-service dining
by night at the Be Our Guest restaurant.
Here, an enormous mural in the main dining
room will immerse you in the time and place
of the Beauty and the Beast animated film.
Walt Disney Imagineering artists created it first
as a digital file and then projected it on the wall
so scenic painters could bring it all to life: a
fictional French valley where the stars are
always twinkling and the snow is lightly falling.

…hmmm that definitely says the holiday season doesn’t it? Perhaps they misread it? I don’t know—they just were very excited and wanted me to check on it for our August trip—they will meet us in the parks for one evening.

—definitely NOT taking ressies for there for August so----who knows what exactly they received in the mail—

The Jewish high holy days start in mid September this year.:pinch:
