Be Our Guest Reservations Open August 20
The time has finally come! Beginning at 7:00am Eastern Time (this time has been updated by Disney) on August 20, 2012, Disney will be taking reservations for the new Be Our Guest restaurant in Fantasyland.
Reservations can be made up to 180 days out, with the very first seating being for dinner on November 19, 2012. Guests may call 407-WDW-DINE or visit a Guest Relations location on property to make reservations. Online reservations will open on August 22. We recommend calling Disney the minute the phone lines open – as we can assure you there will be no walk-up or day-of availability.
On the Disney Dining Plan, Be Our Guest is one quick-service entitlement for lunch, and one table-service restaurant entitlement for dinner. When booking a reservation, Guests will be required to provide a credit card number in advance and they will be charged $10.00 per person if a cancellation isn’t made at least one day in advance. This helps ensure that more Guests can enjoy the dining experiences available at Walt Disney World Resort restaurants.
Located at the base of the mountain below Beast’s castle, this themed venue transports diners to the magical world of “Beauty and the Beast.” Lunch is quick and casual (no reservations required), with Guest-activated terminals that make ordering a snap (there also will be traditional cashiers for cash orders and special dietary requests). Once you have ordered, simply take a seat and lunch will be delivered to your table – on china, not paper. Dinner is table service.
Cuisine is French inspired to match the hit animated film’s theme. Dinner selections include the usual favorites like steak, poultry and fish; but with a French flair befitting of the environment. Grilled strip steak with pommes frites (French fries), French onion soup and thyme-scented pork chop are just a few of the things found on the dinner menu. For lunch, you’ll be able to enjoy salads like the tuna Nicoise and sandwiches such as the Croque Monsieur (ham and cheese) and grilled steak sandwich with garlic butter spread. There will also be heartier fare, like braised pork and vegetable quiche.
The restaurant features three themed dining rooms: the mysterious West Wing with the “enchanted rose;” the Rose Gallery with twirling, larger-than-life figures of Belle and Beast; and The Ballroom with elegant details, such as a domed ceiling, twinkling chandeliers and glimpses of softly falling snow outside.
Your Mouse Unlimited agents will (hopefully) be experiencing dinner at Be Our Guest on December 3. We’ll be sure to Tweet about it, post some photos, and write about it later!
