Over the weekend a few guests were allowed in among the cast member previews of New Fantasyland and I managed to grab this video of the magical transformation that occurs in the mysterious West Wing of the Beauty & The Beast themed Be Our Guest restaurant. The time to pay attention is when a thunderstorm rolls in, first the rose drops a petal, then the prince’s portrait flashes to include the beast during a a bolt of lightning.
Sorry for the shakey bits there. Neither effect is all that special technology wise, but when placed within the room straight out of the movie, albeit set up for dining, the feeling is magical.
