After "Journey of the Little Mermaid" which began its soft opening yesterday, today was the turn of the awaited "Be Our Guest" Restaurant. Although it seems that it's not possible yet to have lunch or dinner inside the restaurant, WDW guests were able to have a walk through visit, and the least we can say is that WDI Imagineers did a superb job. We will have a look at it thanks to the video shot by sfgam2775br, and it's a "night" video which, according to me, is probably the best time during your next visit at WDW New Fantasyland to go inside the restaurant. The picture above, though, was shot by daylight by Cory Disbrow for his Dateline Disney World update on Mice Age last friday, where you will find plenty of others great pics.
Anyone who will enter the Be Our Guest restaurant won't miss on the right this great heraldic hall with standing armors and medieval flags above them...
...and you won't miss too on the left this great mural with the famous rose and Belle and the Beast.
On your way to the ball room you'll notice these impressive statues, apparently supporting a wooden beam above them.
And there it is, the restaurant main room which looks amazing, isn't it, with its huge chandeliers and a painted ceiling.
But there is more to see as behind the high windows that you can see in the back WDI Imagineers placed a giant painting showing the landscape as the Beast would see from its Castle, and all this with a "snow" effect! Yes, behind the windows of this great ball room it is snowing! You might not see it clearly on the picture below but you'll see the effect better in the video.
And, talking about the video from sfgam2775br, here it is! Enjoy the visit, and welcome at Beast castle!
Edited: WDI just released a 4min long video which will show you more of the Be Our Guest restaurant, with areas that WDW guests couldn't access during the soft opening last week-end. Have a look!
