At present, dinner is part of the regular Disney Dining Plan as a table service experience costing two credits and including your choice of appetizer, entree and deluxe dessert sampler.
Dine in one of three exquisite rooms inspired by Beauty and the Beast’s West Wing, Rose Gallery or Grand Ballroom for an unforgettable dining experience. Details like gargoyles, stained glass windows, shields and an Enchanted Rose will take you right into its story!
Food aside, what really sets this restaurant apart is its whimsical theme. Situated at the back of Magic Kingdom in Fantasyland and just past Cinderella’s castle, it makes this an excellent spot to dine during parades or fireworks at Magic Kingdom as well. When finished dining there, be sure to wave and snap a selfie with The Beast; unfortunately he doesn’t provide traditional character interactions or sign autographs like other Disney characters do!
The restaurant is inspired by Beauty and the Beast, featuring three magical dining rooms that will transport you right back into its animated movie world. Every detail from Grand Ballroom, West Wing and Rose Gallery are simply exquisite!
At lunch and dinner guests are treated to a pre-fixe menu similar to other Disney Table Service restaurants but with more emphasis on classic French cuisine. Beginning with appetizers such as French Onion Soup, Duck Terrine or Escargot they will then select entrees such as Grilled Filet Mignon, Roast Poulet Rouge Chicken or Trout Almondine as main courses; all meals also include sides and dessert. Kids menu options may include Grilled Tenderloin with Pan Seared Chicken served alongside macaroni and Cheese; trio mini desserts or seasonal fruit served alongside yogurt dip
Be Our Guest Restaurant provides an unforgettable dining experience and you shouldn’t pass up this chance. The attention to detail is incredible and truly gives an immersive feel of being inside Beast’s castle. With West Wing seating, Rose Gallery seating and the Grand Ballroom offering all-you-can-eat-buffet service – gargoyles, stained glass windows, tattered tapestries and the Enchanted Rose as just some of its elements – Be Our Guest is more than just another theme park dining location!
At dinner guests have an exciting opportunity to meet Beast in person! While he won’t be available to sign autographs or take formal photographs with you, you will get to say hi as he passes by your table and say hi as he walks past!
Imagineers really went all-out when it comes to this theming experience, making you believe you have entered Beast’s castle with gargoyles, stained glass windows, an enchanted rose, halls of armor and more! Dining areas have also been designed with beautiful details including gargoyles, stained glass windows, an enchanted rose and more – the Grand Ballroom stands out with its grand scale design while West Wing gives off more ominous vibes with forbidden portrait of Beast and Rose Gallery where Belle can drop petals from her rose.
Dining here differs from dining at other table service restaurants: rather than choosing your seating area, tables in one of three rooms will be assigned for you to use. Feel free to roam freely throughout the restaurant, observing its various rooms and taking photographs if desired – you can even go inside of Beast’s study for official PhotoPass photos!
At breakfast and lunch times, customers may order whatever they’d like from the menu; at dinner there is a prix fixe menu which requires selecting both an appetizer, entree, and dessert trio from an authentic French selection such as French Onion Soup, Escargot, Duck Terrine Trout Almondine; while for kids they offer more sophisticated fare such as Grilled beef tenderloin, Chicken Breast or Classic Mac&Cheese dishes.
Value in restaurants depends entirely upon individual perspectives. Without considering location within Disney World, theme design and atmosphere, menu items, unique offerings etc, Be Our Guest is unlikely to be seen as offering exceptional value; however this holds true of most dining options at Walt Disney World.
Be Our Guest was also notable as it was the first table service restaurant at Magic Kingdom to serve alcohol – wine, beer and cocktails are served in souvenir cups as part of a meal package – though guests can queue up after their meal for official Disney PhotoPass photos with Beast (unlike at other character dining locations). Guests may take official Disney PhotoPass photos with him afterward though he does not interact with guests like other character dining spots do.
