This is the Best guide to Beauty and the Beast Fairy Tale Pics at Disney
So, I am addicted to the live action version of Beauty and the Beast fairy tale. I admit it. I play it on loop. Judge away. I was actually quite surprised at myself. I didn’t think I was going to enjoy Emma Watson dawning the golden evening frock singing alongside Dan Stevens in his beastly apparel, but I genuinely did and adore the new songs. I am not alone in this opinion of the new film either. Thousands of fans loved this version of the movie and also adore the original 2D Animated classic that was released 25 years ago. It is a favourite of the many beautiful movies the talented animators created. And here is your essential guide in meeting these beloved Beauty and the Beast characters at the Disney Parks across the globe.
Meet the Beauty and the Beast Fairy Tale Characters
Belle – Herself
The book-reading maiden who is the talk of the town and Gaston’s dream girl does frequent encounters with her public.
First, if you are at the Magic Kingdom you must head to Enchanted Tales with Belle. This experience takes guests through Maurice’s house and has you visiting with Belle, Lumiere, and Wardrobe. If you have a Memory Maker, the photographer takes numerous photos of Belle interacting with guests for you to download later. There is no guarantee however, that you will get a personal photograph with her.
Belle can also be found at the Akershus Storybook dining in EPCOT World Showcase inr the Norway area. Get your photo taken with her before dining for breakfast, lunch, and dinner.
If you don’t feel like dining at Akershus, you can find Belle regularly in the France area of the World Showcase. Grab a time schedule at one of the country areas so you can be sure to head to France during her meet and greet times.
As far as Disneyland California, Belle is seen frequently at Ariel’s Grotto character dining and in Fantasyland.
Note: Be sure to check on Ariel’s Grotto. With quite a bit of construction, this restaurant has been closed a lot this year.
If you are travelling through Disneyland Paris, you can find Belle in the Princess Pavilion and in character dining.
And, if you are in one of the Asia parks in Tokyo, Hong Kong, and Shanghai, she does frequent appearances in all of these parks.
Cruising? Belle has done numerous appearances on all the cruise lines. Do check with your crew for the character schedule.
For now the Beast can only be found at the Be Our Guest Restaurant in Magic Kingdom Orlando at dinner only. He does not come out to greet guests dining for breakfast or lunch. As well, he does not give autographs. Make sure you head to the study to see him as he doesn’t not stop at guest dining tables. This restaurant is such a joy. You seriously get to relive Beauty and the Beast characters along with the decor, details, and wonderful food. New for the summer of 2018, the Be Our Guest dinner has become a 2-credit prix-fixe restaurant. Make sure you check it out on your next trip.
The adorable little teacup sadly has not left Beast’s castle. He doesn’t meet his fans and that doesn’t look like it will change anytime soon. He does appear in Disney on Ice productions and the show that is currently playing at the Hollywood Studios.
The beloved teapot who brings such a motherly type character to the film. Hence, this is one of the Beauty and the Beast fairy tale characters to watch out for; sadly does not do any meet and greets with fans. She has been seen in parades, Disney on Ice, and in shows performances, but other than that, she cannot be met by her devoted fans. I was quite sad about this as she really is a delightful character.
The adorable desk clock sadly only appears in Disney on Ice productions and the live show at Hollywood Studios. He does not meet any of his fans. It really is a pity for those who would love to see their favorite Beauty and the Beast fairy tale characters!
The only place you can interact with Lumiere is in the Enchanted Tales with Belle. He appears on the fireplace mantle. Not everyone gets to meet Belle personally from this experience either so if you are one of the lucky chosen guests, you may get the opportunity to say something to Lumiere.
The conceited beau wannabe of Belle can be met right outside his Tavern at the Magic Kingdom in Orlando. He appears frequently and has a Memory Maker photographer accompanying him. The only other spot he can be found is the Halloween Party in Disneyland Paris.
The only place to see Lefou is in the performances at Hollywood Studios and Disney on Ice. Sadly he does not meet any fans.
The beautiful duster and love interest of Lumiere is only seen in Disney on Ice productions.
The enchanting Beauty and the Beast fairy tale characters do some meet and greets, but the characters who meet fans are limited to the happy couple. You never know, this could change in the future with the popularity of the movie, but for now, enjoy the moments currently available.
