Lunch @ Be Our Guest Restaurant, Disney World
On our Holiday to Disney World in Florida, we ate lunch at the Be Our Guest Restaurant.
Be Our Guest is a themed restaurant in Fantasy Land based on Disney’s Beauty and the Beast film. From the outside of the restaurant you can see the Castle from the film and there are plenty of opportunities to have your picture taken in front of it by a Disney Photographer.
Due to demand and the restaurant being very popular, we decided to book a table in advance so we knew we’d definitely be able to dine there. I’d recommend booking a table as soon as you can using the My Disney Experience website as it becomes booked up very quickly.
Once inside Be Our Guest, you are invited to order your food and drink using interactive screens within the restaurant lobby. We had already pre-ordered our food so it was simply a case of re-checking the order and then paying using our MagicBand.
We were then free to go choose a table in one of the 3 dining rooms within the restaurant. The rooms are The Ballroom, West Wing and The Castle Gallery. The West Wing is a small room off to the left side of the restaurant. The main feature of West Wing is the Enchanted Rose which is kept within a glass enclosure and lights up. On the other side of the restaurant, The Castle Gallery features a large model of Belle and The Beast dancing. The model rotates 360° and gives a truly magical feeling to the room. We ate in the Ballroom which is the central and largest of the 3 rooms. With high, domed ceilings and animated windows that made it look like snow was falling outside, this room really made us feel like we were dining in the ballroom of a huge castle.
Once we were seated, it didn’t take long for our food to arrive. The waiters were able to find our location using our MagicBands which I think is fantastic idea and adds to the ‘magical’ feeling. I ordered the ‘Carved Prime Chuck Roast Beef Sandwich’ whilst Ryan had the ‘Braised Pork (Coq Au Vin Style)’. Both meals were delicious and the portions were huge for the price, such good value. For dessert we ordered the ‘grey stuff’, a cupcake featuring grey coloured frosting, to keep in with the Beauty and the Beast theme.
The decoration within the restaurant was fantastic and there was such a great attention to detail. I would highly recommend Be Our Guest restaurant as a dining suggestion for anyone’s Disney World visit.
