Beauty and The Beast Show
The Beauty and the Beast Show at Disney Hollywood Studios is a recap of the movie that was popular in the early 90's (yes, it's been that long). It's shown several times a day in a the "Theater of the Stars" which is where you line up for Fantasmic.
Like most Dad's, Dad missed this attraction for several Disney World trips. What can we say, we are guilty of sappy show avoidance. It's just our nature. But on this last trip Dad actually planned to go to "Theater of the Stars" and ended up watching the show.
Beauty and the Beast
There used to be a really good preshow, but Disney discontinued it in 2009.
"Be our Guest, Be our Guest" This is a real life version of the cartoon movie that came out in 1991. (Yes, it was that long time ago.) The show is a musical, just like the cartoon, the performers act out the best scenes from the movie and sing the most popular songs.
Everyone knows the story. Boy gets in trouble gets turned into a beast. Girl runs away from town bad boy runs into beast. Beast falls in love with girl. Girl falls in love with beast. Beast and girl kiss. Beast turns back into boy. Everyone (except for the bad guy) lives happily ever after.
The show is a mixture of live action sound and prerecorded sound. So you get to hear some of the voices you are familiar with, but the on-stage actors are really singing (usually).
The show opened in 1991 the same year as the movie.

Dad's Bottom Line
