Well, now it will. At least for a limited time, in a limited way. Disney announced today that it will overlay the Village Haus Restaurant with a Beauty and the Beast theme to promote the upcoming Disney live-action film, much in the same spirit that Disneyland rethemed Tomorrowland Terrace as Galactic Grill for its Star Wars overlay of Tomorrowland.
The Village Haus won't become Be Our Guest, but the "Red Rose Taverne." Yet the overlay also will create multiple themed rooms within the Fantasyland restaurant, each depicting a different chapter from the story, just like at Be Our Guest. And Disneyland will adopt a new, "French taverne-inspired" menu, with signature beverages and a west coast version of the "Grey Stuff." So that makes this kinda a pop-up Be Our Guest, if you will. (At least, the quick-service lunch version.)
In addition to the restaurant overlay, Disneyland will bring Gaston into Fantasyland for meet and greets, add a Beauty and the Beast merchandise location next to the Red Rose Taverne, and add dipping sauces to the twists at Maurice's Treats in Fantasy Faire. (The Grey Stuff will be one of the dip options.)
The new film opens March 17, but Disney's hasn't announced the opening dates for any of these promotions, or how long they will last. Stay tuned.Tweet
