It seems that there will be a magical transformation to occur at the upcoming Beauty and the Beast Inspired Restaurant that is apart of the Fantasyland Expansion.
Not unlike its magical transformation of a frog into a princess or a beast into a prince, the Disney wizards plan to conduct a daily metamorphosis of its planned 552-seat Be Our Guest restaurant from a casual, quick-service lunch spot into an elegant, full-service dinner experience. The multi-purpose establishment will be themed to the film, Beauty and the Beast, and will be located in the Beast’s Castle, part of the Fantasyland expansion at Walt Disney World’s Magic Kingdom. The new Fantasyland attractions are scheduled to open in 2012 and 2013.
Disney will test the quick-change, dual-purpose restaurant concept with the expanded Cantina de San Angel, now under construction at the Mexico Pavilion at Epcot.
We are looking forward to both restaurants. If you have been visiting the site for any length of time you will know that San Angel Inn is one of my favorite restaurants. I would love to be there for the grand opening but I will just have to settle for pictures and video as we get ever closer to that date.
