Beauty and the Beast

Gaston falls off the castle to his death, but not before he wounds the Beast. The Beast is about to die, but Belle says she loves him before the last rose petal falls. He is turned back into the prince by a magical "shot" transformation, and all the other objects turn back into people with a "whoosh", and they have a wedding for Belle and the Prince. However, only the aftermath is shown with Belle and the prince dancing with the castle personnel arguing with each other and Chip still having cup tendencies, which the senior citizens of the story find charming.

Trivia: When Gaston has his feet on the table at Belle's house, a bit of the mud strongly resembles Mickey Mouse's head. This follows the long standing Disney tradition of having "hidden Mickeys" in their movies.

Question: The timing of the Beast's curse has always confused me. The movie states he has until the rose wilts completely to break the spell, and that said rose will bloom until his twenty first year. So was the Beast's deadline his 21st birthday or would the rose begin to wilt on his 21st birthday and he would then have only a little under a year (judging from how much time appears to pass in the film) till all the petals fell off?

Answer: The Rose started wilting at The Beast's 21st birthday and could have presumably started wilting years before the first time we saw a petal fall off. Given the fact that Lumiere stated that they were living with the curse for 10 years, prince Adam could be 23-24 years old at the time of the original movie,13-14 at the time of the curse, and the Rose could have been wilting for two to three years. This is my best guess given the approximate age of Prince Adam in the ripped up portrait before he was the Beast.

Answer: I would assume it would be until his 21st birthday, as that is really the 21st year since his birth. After his 21st birthday he'd be older than 21.
