Be Our Guest is one of the most highly sought after restaurants in Magic Kingdom at Disney World. Getting dinner reservations is nearly impossible unless you book well in advance. We got our travel agent to book it for us so we were guaranteed a spot.
As a huge Beauty & the Beast fan, I had to dine here.
Stepping inside the Beast’s enchanted castle was definitely a dream come true.
How can you not swoon over being here and having a glimpse of Disney magic? I was super happy to have dinner here.
When it was out reservation time, we went up to the front booths to check in, but they were about 30 minutes behind, so we waited outside until they told us we could go past the main gates.
Once we got to the main gate, we waited a little bit more until they called out names to head on inside.
Through these large beast statues are the 3 different dining areas.
The Grand Ballroom
The Grand Ballroom is iconic with its high, domed ceiling, chandeliers and snow-laced Gothic arches brings us back to the moment when Belle and Beast have their dance.
I ended up dining in the ballroom and the entire time, I was just in awe.
The West Wing
The West Wing is Beast’s mysterious West Wing study—if you dare—and perhaps you’ll even spy his enchanted rose. Its a dark room and its’ pretty cool to be in.
The Castle Gallery
The Castle Gallery has pictures of Belle and Beast as well as large statues of them dancing in the centre of the room.
No matter which room you are dining in, all 3 have the same menu. With the Disney Dining Plan, we get 1 non-alcoholic drink, 1 entree, and 1 dessert.
I went with unsweetened iced tea as that seemed to be my favourite drink in the Disney Parks. It’s refillable too. M went with a Coke.
As we waited for our entrees to arrive, bread and butter arrives at the table. Pretty standard and nothing that exciting.
Grilled Strip Steak with herb butter and pommes frites is what M ordered. The steak was very tough even though it was ordered as a medium rare. The gristle and fat was made this steak very unappetizing and hard to cut through.
It was so bad that they just took it off the bill since they saw we didn’t enjoy it at all.
Roasted Lamb Chop served with potato pave, artichokes, tomato salsa, and a lamb demi-glace. It came with 3 pieces of lamb and it all tasted ok. The potato pave was really good.
When it is time for dessert, they roll out the carts and you can choose which dessert you want.
Chocolate Cream Puff is filled with chocolate mousse topped with whipped cream and chocolate. M felt like the dessert got a bit dry as it sat in the display case.
The “Grey Stuff” has a chocolate shell, cookie creme topped Lumiere’s special “grey stuff”. It just tastes like cookies n creme
Before you leave, don’t forget to take a picture of the Beast and also post in front of this glass window. We missed the beast since he was taking a break.
Overall, the restaurant looked amazing, but the food was pretty subpar. If you are a big Beauty & the Beast fan, Be Our Guest is a must since you’ll be able to see a lot of iconic items from the movie.
