A mini-version of Disney's 30th animated classic, Beauty and the Beast, Live on Stage, features the popular characters and songs from the film in a lavish, Broadway-caliber production.



Beauty and the Beast -- From the popular Be Our Guest to the moving strains of "Tale as old as time..." this 20-minute show mirrors the film upon which it's based. It tells the story of Belle, a beautiful but bookish girl who lives in a small French town. She is pursued by the macho Gaston, to her dismay, for she yearns for a different life. Her father, Maurice, stumbles upon the enchanted castle of the Beast, and, to free him, Belle offers herself as prisoner in his stead. Under the anxious eyes of Mrs. Potts, Lumiere and Cogsworth, among others, Belle grows to love the Beast and, despite the efforts of the townspeople led by the jilted Gaston, the couple manages a fairy tale ending.


Arrive 20 minutes prior to the show to be guaranteed a seat.

Although the stage is clearly visible from most of the amphitheater, sitting in the middle or rear of the theater offers a view of the entire stage and the sets.

This show lasts approximately 20 minutes and is performed several times each day.

After a Beauty and the Beast show lets out, nearby attractions such as Tower of Terror and Rock 'n' Roller Coaster may be swamped. Shopping along Sunset Boulevard for a while after the show may be a better bet than attempting to fight the crowds.

This attraction is wheelchair/ECV accessible.

Assistive Listening Devices from Guest Services Can Be Used Here.

The nearest restrooms and telephones are located at the end of Sunset Boulevard, to the right as you exit the Theater of the Stars.
