It's good, but It needs to be replaced or updated. Back in the early 90s, the show was both relevant and somewhat unique in that it was the only broadway singing style show in the park. And in addition, it was open air, which made it seem more grand somehow, like a rock concert. (not to downplay theater shows that are totally indoors because they have their specialness too). Today however you realize the special effects are minimal and outdated, the costumes seem a bit sunfaded, and the broadway show back home in ny is actually more entertaining by now making this a bit superfluous. Entertainment has evolved yet this show hasn't. It should get with the 21st century which is not a statement you hear me say often!

It is a good Disney show. No it is not Broadway and yes the movie is cut down to fit a 25 min. show but you know that going in. Overall it is a good show and it is hot because it is a outdoors but that said it is also a good place to sit see a show and figure out where to next.

This show is amazing, I have seen it many times. It is the quality of a Broadway show for adults and entertaining and fun for the kids. You will love it, and it will be great to take a break from running around to all the other rides!

This has been one of my favorite attractions since I was a little girl. The show is abbreviated quite a lot, but the costumes,sets, and dancing are very cute and loved by kids. For adults to enjoy, it really all depends on the cast of the show for that particular performance. A bad Belle can ruin the show. Overall, I think it's a great show to stop in at when you're in need of a rest (It's under a pavillion, so it remains pretty cool in the heat.)If it is not compared to the Broadway show, then it will be loved. A great theme park attraction.

If you have seen the Broadway version or any tour or local production of the Broadway Musical don't ruin your expereince with this! Most of the actors lip sync and terribly at that! The only upside to this is Four For A Dollar, the a capella group that sings before the show. So get there about 20 minutes before show time and get a good seat in the back for these guys. When they leave, so can you. It's just not believable when Chip is bigger than the Beast!!!!

I enjoy it even more than the broadway version! It's not as long, but it still includes all the characters and unforgettable songs!

Disappointing. I hear pretty good reviews of this show, but I wasn't that impressed. Each song segment in and of themselves were well done, but I thought the storyline was modified a bit too much. Granted I understand there are time constraints when you're in a theater where the temp is 90 degrees, but there you are. I think I was a bit prejudiced by the fact of seeing the very exciting Aladdin show at California Adventure before ever seeing this one.

Superb show, certainly not to be missed. From beginning to end keeps the entire of the audience captivated, quickly moving through the storyline in the 25 minutes provided covering every detail that is needed. Have a friend who also does the show and it was recommended to me to come and see it - I enjoyed every minute of it. Superb performance by all.

This is a great show! I always make a point to see this when I get chance to go to MGM Studios. Beauty and the Beast is one of my favourite films and the show manages to match, with the key songs performed very well through to the finale. I also want to say that during the times I have seen this show this year - the pre-show/warm up act, '4 for a Dollar' (I think thats what they are called) are brilliant. A great Vocal performance of some popular songs to get the crowd going by 4 'Cast Members'

The classic Disney film comes to life in a wonderful stage show that inspired the version now playing on Broadway. Belle, Beast, Gaston, and the rest of the favorite characters are all here singing and dancing to the film's wonderful songs. The show feels as if it never slows down with thrilling musical numbers including "Be Our Guest", "Belle", "Beauty and the Beast", and of course a breathtaking finale the transformation of the Beast to a handsome Prince. A definate must-see at the Studios.
