Guest Review: New Dish at Be Our Guest Restaurant in Disney World’s Magic Kingdom

Not only has Disney World’s Be Our Guest Restaurant just won a prestigious award, it’s also got a few new menu items!

Be Our Guest Restaurant Menu Changes Already in the Works...

Welcome Guest Author Daniel S. with his review of the new chicken dish at the Magic Kingdom’s Be Our Guest Restaurant! The new entree replaces the Rotisserie Cornish Hen.

Disney World’s Be Our Guest Restaurant recently changed up its dinner menu a bit, and I got the chance to try the new chicken dish. First of all, here’s something that’s interesting to note: the new Chicken Breast Provençal wasn’t yet on the printed menu when we visited. Our waitress said it was available to order, but the hen was still reflected on the current menu handed out.

She described it as basically Chicken Parmesan without the cheese. I would disagree. The sauce had a very distinct flavor. Do not expect an Italian essence. It was a mixture of white wine and green olive, with heavy emphasis on the olive. No hint of garlic in the sauce at all.

The chicken was gigantic. Quite possibly the largest chicken breast I’ve ever been served at a restaurant. There was a partial bone in the breast. It was so tender that it almost fell apart; no knife needed!

It was served with asparagus and fingerling potatoes. The potatoes were great. Slightly crispy on the outside and incredibly fluffy on the inside.

Very simple presentation and elegant taste for a chicken dish!

    This looks delicious and it might be my choice, though I doubt I would have ordered it had it been described as chicken parmesan without the cheese. What really interests me is the fact that the restaurant has won a Prestigious Award! I don’t know what you get for winning a Prestigious Award, though I do know for a Major Award you get a lamp shaped like a lady’s leg in a fishnet stocking to display proudly in your front window.

    Prof. Brainard — I don’t think they got anything as fancy as that, so a major award must be better than a prestigious one.

    Hi AJ. First of all, I can’t tell you how much I love this blog. My family and I discovered school bread because of this, so thanks!

    Anyway, my teenage daughter and I going this year, and we’re on the basic dining plan (with 1 table service credit per person per day), and we’ll be seeing all four parks with a park hopper, though nothing is planned beside a full day at Magic Kingdom. So, what would you recommend for us? We were thinking Be Our Guest (1 ts credit) and Hollywood Brown Derby (2 ts credits), and fill up on snacks/counter service the other day?

    Do you have any alternative ideas? We want to try some of the fancier stuff the park has to offer! Thanks so much!

    I will definitely try the Chicken Provencal at Be Our Guest. I love olives! I have not been very impressed with the menu that i have seen so far but we absolutely MUST eat here and we can’t rely on getting a spot at lunch (but we definitely will try). hope my husband and kids can find something they like on the dinner menu.

    We (my dad and I) just ate there last night! It was AMAZING. We were celebrating so we did get the grey stuff. My life is made. :)
    We had the French Onion Soup and the Garden Salad for starters; the ratatouille and the pork for entrees, and the lemon and chocolate creme puffs for dessert. Everything was AMAZING. The ratatouille is served with quinoa, which my dad had never had before but really liked. The pork was perfect, as was th eonion soup, and my dad raved about the salad. My creme puff seemed sort of dried out, but the grey stuff made up for that. :) The lemon one was a bit better, taste wise.
    The pork chop is BIG. Like, really big. Good, but big. :)

    Sounds like this might also be gluten and dairy free…if so, YUM! I will be ordering it next visit.
