Are we allowed to book a dinner at Be Our Guest at 5pm though the park closed at 6 for a Halloween party if we don’t get tickets the party that day? Can we take our time at the dinner?
They do stop letting you book TS at a certain time, it will say when you book if you need a party ticket. I think you’ll be fine at 5 though, and yes you can take your time.
Is the beast always there at dinner?
Yes as far as I know. I’ve never seen any reports of him not being there.
As long as it lets you make a reservation, you should be fine. I’d make sure to pay earlier in the meal to avoid a hassle.
I had a 5:30 dinner at CRT on a Halloween party day on a day the park closed at 6 pm. We were able to take our time at dinner. A CM gave us wrist bands to indicate we were not part of the party. Once we left dinner, each CM we passed directed us (kindly) to the park exit.
