We love seeing Beauty and the Beast whenever we’re at Hollywood Studios!  The story, the costumes, the music, the set designs, the special effects…are all wonderful!

Beauty and the Beast: Live on Stage! is a Broadway-style musical at the 1,500-seat Theater of the Stars at Disney’s Hollywood Studios. It’s based on the popular animated film Beauty and the Beast, and includes many of the original songs and characters from the movie. While most of the soundtrack is prerecorded, the actors playing Belle and Gaston speak and sing live. (Great voices!)

Best song:  Be Our Guest

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.

What a great song!

The show is condensed to approximately 25 minutes and is performed 5-8 times a day, depending on the season.

Its first performance was at 1:30pm on November 22, 1991, the same day as the film’s premiere.  It is currently the longest-running stage show at a Disney World.

We worked at WDW for a year in the Disney College Program (Fall 2013/Spring 2014) and wrote about what it’s like to be a cast member working for Disney.
We give advice on how to successfully get into the DCP program, including some of the actual phone interview questions, how to have a successful internship at Disney, and how not self-term before your program ends. Our book is filled with lots of behind-the-scene stories of the magic of Disney.
