New Fantasyland Update: "Beauty & The Beast" Inspired Be Our Guest Restaurant at Magic Kingdom

As the song goes... “Be our guest! Be our guest! Put our service to the test!”  Who doesn’t love this playful scene from “Beauty and The Beast,” in which the enchanted staff welcomes Belle to the castle in grand style?

Well "grand style" is exactly what the Walt Disney Imagineers are going for with the Beauty and The Beast section of New Fantasyland in the Magic Kingdom.

In this post I have a sneak peek of the Be Our Guest Restaurant's ballroom-themed dining room, featuring the immense chandeliers that added so much romance to the dancing scene in the film.

In the video bellow, Imagineers Chris Kelly and Tim Warzecha discuss the three chandeliers they recently installed.  The largest measures more than 12-feet-tall by 11 ½-feet wide, features 84 candles and more than 100 large crystals.

By the way, the ballroom is just one of the wings the Be Our Guest Restaurant will feature.  I'm hearing another wing of the restaurant will be themed after the darkened West Wing of Beast’s Castle.  I'll be posting updates as they become available.
