One of the most difficult dining reservation to get in Magic Kingdom is Be Our Guest. If you don’t make a reservation in advance, chances are you will be waiting hours to get in or miss out getting the chance to eat there completely.
Dining at Be Our Guest is very popular because it gives you a one of a kind experience of dining inside Beast’s Castle. While the food is wonderful, it is the full experience that makes this restaurant so special.
Dining at Be Our Guest:
As you approach the entrance to Be Our Guest, you will walk over a beautifully decorated bridge that features some of the most gruesome gargoyles you’ve ever seen. These sculptures are so realistic that you feel like they could move at any moment!
Don’t rush into the restaurant. Take time to look up, down and around. There are so many beautifully designed details that take you back into the story of Beauty and the Beast.
As you come upon the knights in armor, be sure to listen carefully. Some are sleeping and some are having conversations. It is worth standing a few more minutes in line to experience this!
If you are dining at Be Our Guest for breakfast or lunch, you will be using the Quick Service dining option. First, you will be escorted into the front hall where you will be given a magical rose and allowed to place your order via a kiosk.
There is no pressure to make a quick decision. You can take as long as you would like to choose your menu options.
After your are done selecting your meals, someone will help you use your rose to finish placing the order. This rose is quite magical as once you find a seat, your meal will be brought straight to your location!
While you are dinging at Be Our Guest, take time to notice all the ways that roses are incorporated into the design of the restaurant. Not only will you find them on the ceiling, they can be spotted on the floor too.
One fun activity to keep kids busy if you have to wait in line or for your food is to count how many different roses they can spot!
When you are ready to sit down, you will have your choice of three dining locations based upon availability. Each area is a little different and you may have a hard time deciding which one to dine in.
Seating Options at Be Our Guest:
The main area is the Grand Ballroom. It is magnificent. Here you will find an enormous chandelier and cherubs on the ceiling. If you sit near the large windows, you will even be able to see snow falling!
The Beast’s West Wing features a fireplace with a picture of the former prince as well as the enchanted rose encased in glass.
This room is on the dark side (both literally and figuratively) and has sound effects to match! If your kids are easily spooked or frightened by noise, you might want to sit elsewhere.
In the center of the Beast’s library you will find a figure of Belle & the Beast dancing. As the music plays in the room, that statue will turn.
There are beautiful hand-painted tapestries and pictures from the movie that decorate the walls. This is probably my favorite place to sit.
After you have found your seat, your Magic Rose will send out a signal to let the server know that you are ready to dine.
You can feel free to roam about, grab your silverware and prepare your own drink at the drink station.
Once your meal is ready, your server will arrive with a cart containing your food. You will dine just like a true guest, on fine china and use real flatware!

Lunch at Be Our Guest
Lunch is served from 11-2:30 pm and is considered quick service. If you are dining on the Disney Dining Plan, you can use your quick service credit for your meal.
Lunch is my favorite way to experience Be Our Guest because it is the only time of the day when you can order a la carte and meals are quite affordable.
We’ve had both the French Onion Soup and Braised Pork (Coq Au Vin Style). Both are delicious!
Those that have a breakfast or lunch reservation can also take advantage of order-ahead dining where you pre-order your meals online (up to 30 days in advance).
Dinner at Be Our Guest
Dinner at Be Our Guest turns into a table service restaurant from 4-9:30. This means that you won’t stop at the kiosk station to place your order like you do for breakfast or lunch.
You will immediately be seated by a server and place your order with them.
The menu allows you to choose one appetizer, one main entree and one dessert.
There are 6 entrees to choose from:
- Roasted Pork Tenderloin
- Spice-dusted Lamb Chops
- Saffron-infused Seafood Bouillabaisse
- Smoked Ricotta and Corn Tortellini
- Center-cut Filet Mignon
- Poulet Rouge Chicken
If you are dining on the Disney Dining Plan, be prepared to use a Table Credit for this meal.
What makes dinner a bit more special (and deserving of the price) is that you will get to see Beast. He makes an entrance around the start of dinner and then stays for a meet and greet as you leave the restaurant.
Looking for Belle? She isn’t here. You will find her at Belle’s enchanted cottage as well as in Epcot’s France Pavilion.
No meal is complete without dessert! And as the song goes, “Try the Gray Stuff, it’s delicious!” The Master’s Cupcake is available for breakfast, lunch and dinner and it is the signature dessert. It is made of Chocolate Sponge Cake and topped with Lumiere’s special “Grey Stuff.”
No matter which type of meal you choose to experience while dining at Be Our Guest, I have no doubt that you will enjoy your time there. Just be sure to book your reservation in advance!
