The Beauty and the Beast themed Be Our Guest restaurant promises to add a whole new dimension of immersive story telling as guests get the chance to be right in the memorable ballroom scene where Belle and the Beast danced together from the classic Disney animated film. Here’s a sneak peek inside the Be Our Guest ballroom with a look at the Chandeliers that will occupy much of the overhead space in the room.
The three chandeliers hang in the main dining room, the largest measuring twelve feet in length and eleven feet across with 80 lights and 100 large crystals. The two smaller chandeliers on each side measure 9.5 feet in length and eight feet across with 50 lights each. The trio of chandeliers are inspired by ones seen in the dining room in Beast’s Castle.
There will be two other dining rooms in the restaurant, one that puts you in the infamous west wing of the castle and the other that places you inside the library. If they all look as spectacular as this, you’ll have to return three times to make sure you see them all.
The Be Our Guest restaurant will have two configurations. For dinner (and possibly breakfast) it will operate as classic sit-down restaurant, but for lunch it can serve as a counter-service. The restaurant is also being built to accommodate the new xPass (aka Fastpass Plus). Guests will be able to skip the lines after making a reservation via the online or mobile interface.
Be Our Guest is currently scheduled to open in time for the 2012 Holiday season.
