Summary

Reservations

For all meals, you'll want to make reservations 180 days in advance. You'll need to use a credit card to guarantee your reservation, and there's a $10 per person no-show fee if you don't show up or cancel within 24 hours. (Note that this is the only quick-service meal at Walt Disney World that accepts reservations.)

Breakfast and Lunch

Even for breakfast and lunch, reservations are required to dine at Be Our Guest.

For the counter service breakfast and lunch, touch-screen, automated terminals (like you can find at Contempo Cafe) are available for guests to customize their orders. To skip this step at lunch, guests with reservations may instead order their food up to 30 days in advance via the My Disney Experience app or website. For special dietary requests and cash orders, cashiers are available.

After placing your order, you’ll sit down, and your order will be delivered to you on real tableware — no paper and plastic around here. Guests who have eaten at Wolfgang Puck Express in Downtown Disney will understand the process here. You retrieve your own silverware and fill your own beverage cups.

Dinner

Popularity does not wane come evening. If you can't get a dinner reservation, check in person when the park opens for any same-day cancellations, though you may need a certain party size to fill a vacant table.

Dinner is a table service meal and requires a credit card guarantee. While not a character meal, per se, Beast visits the dining room and is available for photos.

Setting and Atmosphere

Beast’s Castle is so popular that they’ve added quick-service breakfast from 8 to 10 a.m., in one of three themed rooms inspired by Beauty and the Beast: the Grand Ballroom, the mysterious West Wing, and the pretty Rose Gallery. (Dinner reservations are still the most difficult to snag.) The rooms fill up fast, with a noise level to match the hordes (550 seats). The lights are dimmed at dinner, which offers table service and a tad more serenity. And grown-ups love a beverage menu that includes wine and beer.

Inside Be Our Guest are three separate dining areas, themed after the ballroom, Rose Gallery, and West Wing from Disney's animated film Beauty and the Beast.

Located along the back border of Fantasyland, the restaurant is set deep inside a faux rock wall which serves as the base of Beast's castle. In fact, the restaurant is so far back inside the Magic Kingdom that there are no windows to the outside world in any of the three dining rooms, because the view from them would be of the park's otherwise hidden infrastructure. The lack of windows makes the dining rooms dark, especially the West Wing room. As in the movie, Beast's enchanted rose appears in the West Wing, not in the dining room named "Rose Gallery."

House Specialties

For dinner, try the Pan-seared salmon on leek fondue, New York strip. Or the Grilled strip steak with pommes frites. For dessert, cupcakes and a no-sugar-added lemon-raspberry fruit puff.

Other Recommendations

Counter-Service Lunch

The best counter-service restaurant in the Magic Kingdom, and one of the best in all of Disney World. Our favorite breakfast selections are the open-faced bacon-and-egg sandwich with Brie and the fried doughnuts topped with banana-caramel sauce and chocolate ganache. For lunch we like the slow-cooked coq au vin–style pork with mushrooms, carrots, onions, and bacon. The croque monsieur sandwich is a grown-up version of grilled ham and cheese, with carved ham, Gruyère, and béchamel sauce and pommes frites on the side. If we’re behaving, the generous seared-tuna Niçoise salad hits the spot.

Table Service Dinner

The big surprise at dinner is that you can order wine and beer with your meal, because Be Our Guest is the first Magic Kingdom restaurant to serve alcohol. The wines are from France and California, and can be ordered by the glass or bottle. If you're feeling festive, champagne is available too (by the bottle only). Beers are from Belgium and France.

Appetizers include a charcuterie plate with cured meats and sausages; mussels steamed in white wine; French onion or potato leek soup, and a salad with champagne vinaigrette. Vegetarians and vegans will enjoy the salad trio with roasted beet, raisins, and orange; green beans, tomatoes, and roasted shallots; and watermelon, radish, and mint. Our favorite is the potato leek soup.

Main course options include a thyme-scented pork rack chop with au gratin pasta; rotisserie rock hen with roasted fingerling potatoes; pan-seared salmon in leek fondue; grilled strip steak with pommes frites; sautéed shrimp and scallops with veggies in puff pastry with creamy lobster sauce; and an oven-baked, vegetarian ratatouille.

Of these, the shrimp and scallops in puff pastry gets the most positive comments from diners. The pork rack chop is also a hit, though not quite as good as the pork chop at the Studios' Hollywood Brown Derby.

The strip steak is hit or miss, depending on the quality of the beef. Some nights it's chewier than you'd expect from a $30 cut of meat, other times it's fine. The ratatouille incorporates the quinoa salad from lunch, and, according to our staff vegans, could use more vegetables.

For dessert at lunch or dinner, enjoy strawberry cream cheese, lemon meringue, or triple chocolate cupcakes, a chocolate cream puff, or a passion fruit cream puff. Our favorites are the strawberry cream cheese cupcake and the lemon meringue cupcake. Vegans can request sorbet.

For kids at dinner, it’s grilled steak, grilled fish of the day, whole-grain macaroni, or grilled chicken breast.
