I want it to be a character meal for sure. Buffets are ok, that part doesn't matter. Would love a good steak place, most certainly don't want a 2 TS meal though. CRT already covers that.

I've already read that it will be cs during the day and TS for dinner so I'm sure it will be a 1credit place. Beauty and the Beast has been my almost 19yr old DD's favorite since she was 2 so my family cannot wait for this new area!

whats the specs so far???where will it be?? Is the name "Be our Guest"?
If it were, it would be fun to meet the cast from Beauty & the Beast.

From what I understand they haven't even built it yet, so it's way too early to start talking about making ADRs.

It's just speculation but I tend to think it will NOT be a character restaurant as MK has proportionally too many of those already - and just ended one.

In the presentation made at D23, they said there would be a Beast's Castle restaurant (probably TS) and Gaston's (CS) where "he used antlers in all of his decorating." Since they noted 2 different restaurants, my guess is that the Beast's Castle would be a character meal. Or, if it wasn't, at least an above and beyond meal - maybe with dancing plates and flatware?

I hope it's not a buffet. I envision it as some sort of dinner show, maybe with audio-animatronics instead of actual characters. I think that would be so cool. Either way, I am really looking forward to seeing what it is and hopefully taking DD.

I think that the Magic Kingdom could use a good TS restaurant. Except for the castle which you can never get into and Tony's which has gone down hill there is no nice restaurant to eat in. We never eat sit down for lunch or dinner anymore in the magic kingdom. I also think they have enough character meals. Just my opinion........

I personally do not want to see another character meal. I would not mind a themed restaurant without characters, (like Animator's Palate on DCL), but I would like to enjoy a GOOD meal in the Magic Kingdom without character interruption.

I think it will definitely be character. Why else a beauty and the beast theme. Either way it would be nice for MK to get a new restaurant. There are not enough table service places to eat there.

I think a villain theme would reach more people and seems more current. Beauty and the Beast, while a great movie, has been out quite a while and to me, is more limited in it's audience. My kids are now 10 &7 and we're all done with B & the B. Since they're making another Pirates movie, it would be great it the restaurant was 'piratey'!

That is exactly what came to mind for me as well, and looking at the concept art, it looks to me like a heavily themed dining area of that caliber. I too hope it is a non-character meal, because another Princess meal would be redundant with CRT just steps away (and besides, ANOTHER princess meal is the last thing WDW needs) and no other characters would really fit.

Originally, the restaurant was rumored to have it's own little show.. like a Beauty and the Beast themed Chuck E Cheese with animatronics and dancing dishes, etc which sounds really neat. Making it a character meal will be too much going on, in my opinion. There are already two buffets in MK, so I think a sit-down would be perfect.
