    I hope there are characters - how exciting.
    With 500 seats and 3 rooms - lots of ADR's to be had.

    My DD was "chip" in her school production of Beauty and the Beast.
    Such a geat memory.
    Beauty and the Beast is our must do show in DHS.

    Thats music to Disney's ears.:laughing: I won't be eating there if it is a 2 TS credit. They can have it, but I will be there for a CS credit.

    Oooh, I'm excited! We had ruled out any character meals for next year (kids are gonna do a pirates cruise and wonderland tea party instead), but depending on the menu, I might change my mind for this. ;)

    I read somewhere that it will not be actual characters but will have an animatronic Lumiere much like Remy. I would also be surprised if it is 2 credits because that just seems excessive with CRT literally right around the corner.

    I hope you're right. With Crystal Palace and CRT, MK has enough character meals. It needs some regular TS restaurants for people who don't want the characters. Right now all it has is Tony's, the Plaza, and LTT, none of which we particularly care for. If we want TS we usually leave and go to one of the resorts. It'd be nice to be able to stay in the park.

    I read that it will have the animatronic Lumiere as well, but the article also gave the impression it will have live characters too. I'm guessing Belle, maybe even the Beast. It didn't explicitly say that though so I guess we'll see!

    I think you're right. As of a few months ago, it was definitely not slated to have live characters, just the animatronic Lumiere. I was told this directly from a Disney rep during some training I attended in August. The issue is actually how the restaurant is funded. Apparently each restaurant "pays" for its characters out of its overall budget and this one isn't slated to have live characters in the budget or it wasn't as of late summer.

    According to what is going around there will be no costume characters, just possibly animatronics on the order of Remy, now appearing at Chefs de France. Not confirmed though.There is also no DDP credit info yet.

    I was wondering if they'd even put it on the 2012 dining plan?
    It's the only way we'd be able to do it!

    if it's operated by Disney (and I believe it is - there are no third party restaurants in MK), the restaurant will be on the dining plan as soon as it opens. This year, almost all of the third party restaurants are on DDP as well.

    I'd like to see a high quality restaurant in MK along the lines of Hollywood Brown Derby & Le Bistro. Unfortunately, I'm not really expecting that to happen, since MK restaurants can't serve alcohol. Most high quality restaurants do. I wish they'd surprise me though. If not, I'd settle for a restaurant with similar quality to most of the Epcot WS restaurants.

    I contacted Disney Dining yesterday and asked when they anticipated the opening of the restaurant, and was told they have not been given any information. When I told the cast member what the OP heard, he put me on hold to go check. When he came back he said they didn't know yet. :confused3 I sure hope it's opens sooner rather than later. :goodvibes
