The new fixed-price dinner at Be Our Guest is not going over well with guests, according to our most recent reader satisfaction surveys.
The restaurant, located in the Magic Kingdom’s Fantasyland, has been the most popular dining location in Walt Disney World since it opened in 2012.
The fixed-price dinner option began on July 27, 2018. Be Our Guest’s 90-day satisfaction ratings hit a yearly high of 90.4% on August 6, 2018, but have dropped quickly since.
Be Our Guest’s current 84.6% approval rating is much worse than the 89.8% average for all Walt Disney World dining locations we cover.
Higher-rated dining options in the Magic Kingdom include the Liberty Tree Tavern and Crystal Palace for table-service lunch and dinner at prices similar to Be Our Guest. For inexpensive dining, the Main Street Bakery is a better choice for a fast breakfast.
Columbia Harbour House is the highest-rated restaurant in the Magic Kingdom, and makes a great stop for a quick lunch. The Liberty Square Market food stand has tasty, freshly grilled hot dogs that are great for on-the-go eating.
