Half our party got wine which was just weird to see and our server said there was no limit to how many glasses you could have. Service was very slow it took a total of 3 hours from sitting down to getting the check - I think they took too many people or need more servers.

Anyway, Beast walks through the whole place once an hour (they make a big announcement about the host coming and everyone applauds) and the rest of the time he is in the area where you pay for quick service lunch for photos. No autographs, a PhotoPass photographer was there and group shots only, no getting separate shots with each member of the party. We were never asked for a receipt to enter the line but there wouldn't really be a way to sneak in since you can't enter the castle unless your server is escorting you in. Beast is awesome btw: he was dancing and swaying to the music the whole time we were waiting in line and he made sure to hug everyone. (He can't really do much more interaction than that with how he's built.)
Thank you so much for your report!

Three hours though? I could have done witout seeing that. I'm now begging for more accounts from others as the days go by, to put my mind at ease. I'm sure it's just because it's so new. But we're going before MVMCP and really need to line up for something before 7 PM!

I'd love to hear confirmation on this as well.

I'm hoping it is included in the regular Photopass. Wishful thinking...

Now that I think about it....... I'm not sure how it could be included with photopass+ if they are doing the photo after the meal. There wouldn't be time for them to bring the photos around and try to sell them to people anyway. Surely this will have to evolve somehow. I don't seem them passing up this income stream.

Anyone who has been there with the Beast...... did they have photopass photogs there and did they try to sell you a photo?

Sammy answered this one above, but didn't mention if photos themselves were offered.

Ahhh.... I see that now. But I'd like to know if they sold the photos and if they were included with PP+. I just can't seem to figure out the logistics of it with doing photos after dinner. Of course, maybe that will change.

They give you a Belle themed PP card and I just added it to my account and it came with my PP+.

Edit: May have read this wrong... I'm talking about Enchanted Tales. I do know atTusker they take a picture of your receipt and PP+ lanyard with the number and I got the photo and the same picture added to my PP.

We ate at BOG this evening and loved it! The photograph at the end was just a regular photopass - in other words no hard copies to buy its just added to your card. The food was lovely and the actual theming of the restaurant was fabulous!

Here are some more pictures from Nov. 2nd. My pictures are very bad quality. I did not have a good flash with me and the lighting is VERY low in there.

I always assumed that you could walk from TLM to storybook circus, without going all the way back around, but it seems from the map, that you can't. Is that right?

And, if you can't, does it seem they may open a path there, after SDMT is opened?

IMHO, having that pathway would prevent a lot of bottlenecking in there, so there isn't the kind of madness like there is around splash and BTMR.

There will eventually be a path way there but at the moment it s blocked off to allow construction access to the Mine Ride.

If they do it before hand and then come by with the pictures to sell would that make it a Character meal which I think they were pretty clear BOG is NOT?
