Be our guest…be our guest. I was in high school when Disney came out with the most amazing set of movies-Little Mermaid, Beauty and the Beast,Pocahontas…and since WDW opened their Beauty and the Beast Themed Be Our Guest restaurant it has been tops on my list. Be Our Guest is located in the Magic Kingdom.
The complete experience is magical. As you check in you can see the Beast’s castle off in the distance along with mountains and a waterfall as you cross the bridge to your hostess. As you walk in you literally walk into the castle. The detail is amazing. You are promptly greeted and given a rose to set at your table. If you have ordered ahead online-we did -you can promptly go to a table. If not you can choose your dishes as you check in. We opted to choose beforehand because of the toddler but it turned out to be great! I simply placed my order in my Disney Experience a month in advance.
You seat yourself and can choose between three rooms in the castle. The West Wing which is dark with thunder and a glowing fake fireplace. It’s true to movie form complete with the paintings slashed. The Ballroom-which we ate in! Complete with chandeliers and ceiling paintings and The Rose Gallery.
I opted and was lucky enough to find a place next to the window which has snow! Row adored it and as a result we got to eat! Once we sat down we placed that magic rose on our table. In less than five minutes our food was wheeled out on a cart complete with dessert. They have separate drink stations which are self serve for breakfast and lunch. The meals were actually incredible. I had the braised pork and the master cupcake featuring the grey stuff. That cupcake was the most amazing dessert we ate while we were there!
Be Our Guest is not to be missed. I was really hoping to get a dinner reservation because the Beast actually roams around the dining hall. While the Beast is not present at breakfast and lunch his amazing food is. Breakfast is served with a pastry plate. If you’re hoping to book this reservation it should be top of your list 180 days out. It was the first one I booked and I could only get a lunch. Also if you are using the meal plan breakfast and lunch can be used as a quick service credit-which is an amazing deal and experience for that credit. I’m hoping to book twice next year.
This restaurant is truly what Disney magic is all about! Not to be missed!
