Belle prepares the castle for Christmas against Beast's wishes, trying to bring him happiness for the season. Forte, a pipe organ, fears that Belle's plans may eventually bring about an end to the curse... the curse that brought him more importance in the Master's life. Forte uses Fife, a flute who desperately wants a solo, to destroy Belle's plans and get rid of her.

Did You Know?
At the beginning of the song "As Long as There's Christmas", the first bit of music and the way the snowflakes swirl through the room is similar to Pocahontas
(1995)'s "Colors of the Wind" when the leaves twirl through her hair and the music is the same. See more
At the end of the movie as the prince is pulling out Chip's present, he's seen holding it with both hands for a split second. As he hands it down to Chip his left arm, having been under the gift in the first shot, had disappeared from view. See more
You belong side by side, you should never be apart, 'cause when you're both together, you're really twice as smart.
Twice as smart... she does have a point.
Yes. Well, two heads are better than one.
When the film was re-released on Blu-Ray and DVD in 2011, the following edits for the remastered version brought some small changes from previous releases of the film:
- The film is matted to match widescreen formats, while the original release was held in a 1.33:1 aspect ratio.
- The colors obviously, are slightly pale.
- When Belle sings "It'll stay up until July..." in the original release, the camera is at a Dutch angle, where as in the later release, it is straight.
- When Forte introduces himself to Belle ("I am Miestro Forte, court composer...") the sound appears to be slightly out of synchronization and there is a slight pause focusing on the steps before the camera pans up to Forte.
- When Forte shouts "I THINK NOT!" there is a keyhole cutaway when the camera zooms out, in the earlier releases, there is none.
- The Christmas angel on the tree at the end of the flashback is replaced by one resembling Angelique.
- The end credits are golden yellow like the end credits of the first movie instead of chalk white like in the earlier releases.
