Video Tour and Photos: Be Our Guest Restaurant West Wing, Rose Gallery, and Ballroom

On Sunday, we took you on an EPIC adventure into Be Our Guest Restaurant and Gaston’s Tavern in Magic Kingdom’s New Fantasyland.

Be Our Guest Lobby

Today, we’re stepping into the Be Our Guest Restaurant again. But this time, we get to finally check out the dark and foreboding Be Our Guest Restaurant West Wing and the bright and enchanting Rose Gallery!

In the video below, Walt Disney Imagineers Chris Kelly, Ted Robledo, and Tim Warzecha walk us through the three dining rooms in the Be Our Guest Restaurant. Let’s follow them through the royal entrance and into the elegant Ballroom, lovely Rose Gallery, and the darker West Wing where the Enchanted Rose awaits.

Don’t care to watch the video? No problem — we’ve got some incredible photos below that showcase even more of Beast’s Castle and Be Our Guest Restaurant!

Be Our Guest Restaurant West Wing

Here, the Enchanted Rose lies in the West Wing. Watch closely as the petals begin to fall just like they do in the film!

Check out the claw marks on the portrait above the fireplace. The imagineers didn’t stop there. Watch for the portrait to change between the Beast and the Prince each time a rose petal falls from the enchanted rose… .

The portrait begins as a painting of the Prince.

Once a petal falls, guests will see a flash of lightning as the portrait starts to transform into a painting of the Beast!

The West Wing is clearly going to be the darker, scarier spot to dine. Remember that when making your table requests!

In the Rose Gallery, the love between the Beast and Belle is celebrated with this ornate music box created and given as a gift by Maurice. And yes, you’ll hear “music box” music as you move into the Rose Gallery.

And the Gallery is where imagineers brought the rest of the Beauty and the Beast Characters to life through huge portraits!

    Even if you don’t get a chance to dine here, aer you able to go in and at least see it?

  2. AJ says:

    Elaine — Most of the dining rooms will be open for the counter-service lunch service, so yes!

  3. Jan says:

    Would you happen to know that since there will be ‘counter service’ lunch, if a Reservation is necessary at lunchtime or is the reservations just for dinner? Thank you !

  4. AJ says:

    Jan — No reservations needed for lunch! :-)

  5. Beth says:

    I am SO THRILLED to have gotten a reservation for Be Our Guest on November 24th! Beauty and the Beast is my all-time favorite Disney movie, and the West Wing looks like my spot for a table request!

    AJ, when I made my reservation, I didn’t know which rooms were which, so I didn’t make any table request. Could I call now, or should I wait until the night of?

    I can’t WAIT to try the food here as well. My DH and I will be celebrating our Anniversary for this trip.

    can souvenir Cup be purchased at lunch? 10 year old does not like the adult menu. I don’t know many kids under the age is 15 that like that type of seasoned food. Can she still.order kids meal? Maybe disney should have a 10-15 age menu option or pricing w kid options.

  7. AJ says:

    Missy — I’m not 100% sure, but knowing Disney they will make the souvenir cup available for lunch as well.

    Beth — Yay! Good for you! Congrats on your anniversary! I’d say wait until the night of to make your table request — that’s how it usually works at most dining locations. But you CAN call and note on your dining reservation that it will be your Anniversary; and you should let them know that at the podium when you check in as well.

    I was down there last week and was able to poke in and look around. It looks beautiful and I hope to be able to eat there next visit. I have a feeling it will be very popular.

    OMG! Had dinner there this evening and it was the most enchanting dining experience I have ever had in my life. The chandeliers, the falling snow, the Beauty and the Beast music playing so eloquently in the background. And the food was heavenly. SO lucky to have been in the right place at the right time today. Cannot wait to go again but they are booked for dinner until May! I got a little choked and and we sat there for quite a while after dining soaking up all the magic.

  10. G says:

    I’m going down to WDW on April 18 for several days and was poking around the dining website to see if there were ANY open slots for dinner at BOG. Surprisingly enough, I was able to secure a reservation for the 20th at 6 PM for dinner..so, while the ‘official’ word may be that they’re booked up through May, keep checking and you might get lucky like I did.
