This is it, my first review for a restaurant outside of Tallahassee. I can’t think of a better place to start with. Full disclosure: My fiancée and I are Disney fanatics. We have been traveling there together since 2007. Being a Florida resident, it isn’t that hard for us to find an excuse to get down there. I even proposed to my fiancée in Downtown Disney. Disney in general, is a special place to us.
Beauty and the Beast also holds a particular place in my heart. One of my other passions (outside of food) is acting. I have been acting for most of my life. In high school, my school was chosen as one of the first to do Beauty and the Beast as play. We were lucky enough to get some original costumes from the Broadway production. Our set and actors were top notch. We entered the play into state competition and were chosen to perform the show at Morsoni Hall in Tampa, Florida for all the other competing high schools in Florida. This is a huge honor. Hundreds of schools enter and less than ten are selected. Performing at states was the only time I have ever performed on a professional stage. There were 2,552 people who saw us perform that show and many that got turned away (we sold out). It is an experience I will never forget.

At night, it becomes a sit down restaurant. This Beauty and the Beast themed restaurant is modeled after three different parts of the Beast’s castle.
