Quick Service Lunch: Be Our Guest is a hybrid restaurant, serving quick service for lunch (10:30am – 2:30pm most days) and a sit-down table service meal for dinner.
Setting: Set inside Beast’s enchanted castle, Be Our Guest is Disney’s (arguably) most lavishly themed restaurant. With three elaborately themed rooms, you may find yourself in the dark and mysterious West Wing, the expansive two-story Grand Ballroom, or the bright Rose Gallery complete with a spinning Belle and Beast music box. No matter where guests are seated, surprises surely await.
- This is the newest restaurant and most sought after dinner reservation on property.
- The atmosphere will impress even the most cynical in the group. Yes, your teenager that rolled her eyes through The Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh will be looking up, down, and all around as you walk to your table.
- Best dinner food in Magic Kingdom that continues to improve with time.
- Complimentary picture with Beast at the end of the meal.
- Only location to order beer and wine inside Magic Kingdom. Beer selections include Chimay Blue and White, Saison Dupont, and other outstanding European beers.
- Difficult to score a reservation unless you book at 6am exactly 180 days away from the day you wish to dine. If you were unable to secure a reservation, try asking at the podium to the left of the bridge over to the Castle at 3:45pm and be ready to wait. Large groups should be prepared to split up into smaller parties.
- Food may not live up to lofty expectations. It is quite good for Magic Kingdom table service, but it’s not going to win any awards.
- Cupcakes and cream puffs are the only desserts and they are not particularly tasty. Fortunately, they’re less than five dollars and easily shared.
Tips: Request the ballroom if you have young kids that are potentially scared of darker environments. You can always check out the adjacent West Wing after your meal. Start with one of the soups as your appetizer. The Lamb Rack is not particularly high quality or filling and the Braised Pork is identical to lunch. The other entrees are better. If you get shut out for dinner, try lunch, which doesn’t require a reservation.
Value: Above average. This is a special, unique atmosphere at a cost far lower than Cinderella’s Royal Table. Meal prices are otherwise in line or less expensive than Tony’s, Crystal Palace, or Liberty Tree Tavern.
Reputation: Mixed. People arrive with sky high expectations that are not always met, but the restaurant has improved since officially opening in December 2012. Food quality and service are great for Magic Kingdom.
