Summary

Declining food quality, high prices, and difficult-to-get reservations have taken their toll on Be Our Guest, whose reader ratings have dropped steeply in the past two years.

Currently, only pricey fixed-price lunch and dinner options are available, and Be Our Guest has its worst reader survey ratings in five years. Those survey results indicate Be Our Guest is a below-average restaurant when compared with others in Walt Disney World.

If you're looking for better food at comparable prices, try Liberty Tree Tavern.

For cheaper dining, the Main Street Bakery is a better choice for a fast breakfast. Columbia Harbour House is the highest-rated restaurant in Magic Kingdom, and makes a great stop for a quick lunch. Finally, the Liberty Square Market food stand has tasty, freshly-grilled hot dogs that are great for lunch.

Reservations

If you still want to dine at Be Our Guest, you'll want to make reservations as soon as possible (currently, 60 days in advance) all meals. 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.

Breakfast and Lunch

Prior to 2021, quick-service breakfast and lunch were available. Now the restaurant is closed for breakfast, and lunch is a table-service, prix fixe meal (like dinner).

Lunch and Dinner

Lunch and dinner are fixed-price table service meals and require a credit card guarantee. While not a character meal, per se, Beast may visit the dining room.

There are no dessert choices - everyone gets the same selection of three items (typically a dark chocolate truffle; an edible, white chocolate "cup" holding cookies-and-cream mousse; and a raspberry macaroon.

Dinner Review

Setting and Atmosphere

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. 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.

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."

Be Our Guest's 550 seats fill up fast, with a noise level to match. The lights are dimmed during lunch and dinner, which offer a fixed-price table service meal .

House Specialties

Fixed-Price Lunch and Dinner: Our favorite appetizer is the French onion soup. Other good appetizer choices include a charcuterie plate with cured meats and sausages; and a lobster bisque.

The best main course is the spice-dusted lamb chops with charred tomatoes and trumpet mushrooms, but it may not be availably in 2021 and beyond. Safe choices for picky eaters include the filet mignon with mashed potatoes and grilled root vegetables; or the roasted pork tenderloin with asparagus, brussel sprouts and sprinkled with bacon.

The big surprise at dinner is that you can order wine and beer with your meal, because Be Our Guest was 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.

For kids at lunch or dinner, it's grilled steak, macaroni and cheese, or grilled chicken breast.
