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.

Christmas? She's planning Christmas?
Yeees. Awful, isn't it?

Perhaps she doesn't *know* how I feel about Christmas.
But she *does* know. She just doesn't care, like *I* do. She's actually trying to bring Christmas back to the castle. And you know how much we despise Christmas.

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.
