Belle (Paige O'Hara) prepares the castle for Christmas against Beast's (Robbie Benson's) wishes, trying to bring him happiness for the season. Forte (Tim Curry), 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 (Paul Reubens), a flute who desperately wants a solo, to destroy Belle's plans and get rid of her.

Did You Know?
During the flashback of the prince turning into a beast, the enchantress only offers the rose in exchange for shelter once before the prince slams the door in her face and she turns him into the beast, but in the first movie, it was said that the enchantress offered the rose twice before turning him into a beast.

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.
