One of the best parts of dining at Walt Disney World Resort is all of the unique character experiences you can have. At places like Topolino’s Terrace at Disney’s Riviera Resort, Guests can see Mickey, Minnie, and their friends in their full-on art phase. If you want to go on safari, head to Disney’s Animal Kingdom and experience Donald’s Breakfast Safari at Tusker House. And for one of the most unique character dining experiences, you can head to the Magic Kingdom, where you can dine with the Beast in his castle at Be Our Guest restaurant.
Be Our Guest brings Guests into the heart of the classic film, Beauty and the Beast. They can dine in the West Wing, or even in the enchanting Ballroom, where Belle and Beast danced to a song about a tale as old as time. Dining at Be Our Guest also allows guests to meet the Lord of the Manor, the Beast himself. While he may be an intimidating figure, the Beast recently had an unfortunate wardrobe mishap that may have slightly altered the magic.
Lizy_lizelba recently shared a video on her TikTok showing the beast walking out into the dining room, waving to Guests, bending over, and losing his head. Cast Members quickly came to the rescue to help him get the head back on and escort him from the room. Cast Members try as hard as they can to keep the magic alive, but accidents sometimes happen. Thankfully, the problem was quickly rectified, and the Cast Member was taken backstage, so they could fix any issues the costume may have had.
