Yes my lovelies, the day has finally come. After all that welcoming and fighting and Chip running around like a crazy cup and Mrs. Potts decimating every flower she stepped on, we have finally reached the day in which we get to dress up Belle and Beast and send them to dance in our newly furnished Ballroom. It’s so beautiful I might single tear. Just one though. I’ll need the rest for when my mother disapproves of my life choices. Ahem. Let’s get started.
Obtaining the Costumes
Despite a WHOLE LOT of rumors, the minimum levels for these are to have Belle at 2 and Beast at 3. That means that just about everyone has a very good chance of nabbing these costumes, which I must say is a huge relief!
If you’ve been plugging away at Bell and Beast and collecting, this should not be too challenging. The one new token that we get this time around is the Gold Floral fabric. Luckily, you won’t need many to send Belle on her way with a shiny new dress. Woody and Bo Peep, as well as Mike and Sully each have four hour quests for this cloth, though you should really have anyone who CAN obtain the cloth working on it. After all, we still have to welcome Gaston when this is all said and done.
Once you get Belle all suited up, Beast will be as happy as a monster in a cape.
Meanwhile, Belle will not so subtly hit at the fact that while she was primping, Beast hasn’t even started getting ready.
Beast recalls leaving his suit at the dry cleaners on Main Street and runs out to pick it up.
Beast’s outfit will cost significantly more, but you’ll need it if you want him to dance the mystical dance of the goat bear. Keep up the hard work with the floral fabric and you’ll have it before you can say “GET OUT!!!”
Luckily, the Beast cleans up very nicely and all is forgiven.
Of course, Beast, in his harrier form, is feeling a bit sheepish. Ironic since he has goat horns. He hopes that Belle will still love him.
Belle, on the other hand is actually happy inside, because let’s face it, she likes a guy with scruff and that prince she got when the curse was broken was not what she signed up for AT ALL.
And then Belle reminds us that no fairy tale is complete without a super sentimental touchy feely moment. Get out of my head Belle! Stop making me feel things! I’ll send you 12 hours quests just like those fairies! Don’t think I won’t!!!
With everyone dressed and ready to go, Beast finally pops the question. NO, not THAT question. He asks his beloved to dance.
And then Belle, who is played by Hermione in the movie, makes a Snape reference from Harry Potter and causes an illusive second tear to drip down my face. “After all this time…” Guh! It’s good on so many levels!!
The Quest to send them to dance will take both of them being available and will last 12 hours, so be ready to watch a very long drawn out dance for the rest of the day.
As is typical, the girl is running late.., Although I can’t imagine that running in that dress is particularly easy.
The dance itself is one of the best animations in the game and well worth the wait. While I took a good dozen screen shots, here are my favorites.
And that’s where I leave you! Gaston will be up next, but for now, bask in the greatness of getting to this moment and seeing this dance, a tale as old as time, a song as old as rhyme. Be Our Guest has been a crazy fun event and it’s not over. Let me know how you are doing with Belle and Beast and if you think you’ll finish everything in time. I’ll see you next time for the last step of “Be Our Guest”!!!
