Vanquish the Heartless threat.
You start in the Ballroom, work your way around the room defeating Heartless and opening the two chests. Exit the Ballroom to reach the Entrance Hall, immediately jump up to reach the Ordeal Blazon floating above the steps. Continue defeating Heartless and unlocking chests. If you prefer to save your strength and magic for the upcoming boss battle, you may skip defeating the small-fry Heartless in the Ballroom and Entrance Hall. Leave the Entrance Hall when you're finished and go to the Courtyard.
Here you will find the Unity Badge to the right of the entrance (near the secret entrance). Proceed towards the gates to watch a short cutscene, then continue on to the Bridge, where you will find the Heartless threat.
Once the Infernal Engine is defeated, you can continue to the end of the Bridge and get the Ordeal Badge. With the boss defeated and all treasures obtained, it's time to RTC. Return back to the Courtyard to see a cutscene between the Beast and Belle, showing their love for each other. After the cutscene is over, the mission will end automatically.

This mission will be easier to complete after finishing Story Mode. You'll want to have Glide and Haste equipped, as well as Thunder and Thundara magic. Skip all Heartless battles inside the castle, and hurry to the Bridge. Use your magic to attack both the Infernal Engine and the lesser Heartless on top. Fight the boss as efficiently as you can, attacking the battering ram when it is exposed, and deflecting its cannon shots. Using Limit Break could also damage the boss faster, especially when it sticks out its ram.

This mission is also easier after completing Story Mode. Plenty of Thunder, Thundara, and/or Thundaga casts so you can attack from a safe distance. Also be sure to block and deflect the boss's attacks whenever you can. Another option is to be level 70+, and take out two of the archers atop the Infernal Engine by deflecting the canon balls is shoots to you, and then shove the tank to the far end of the bridge so that it will keep using its battering ram, then smashing it as it is a weak point. Be sure to clear the area before it actually does the attack, the battering ram is lethal.
