Counter-Service (fast food) for lunch, then Table Service (sit down) for dinner
At lunch, touch-screen, automated terminals (like you can find at Pecos Bill and Contempo Cafe) will be available for guests to customize their orders. For special dietary requests and cash orders, cashiers will also be available.
Once your order is placed, you’ll sit down and your order will be delivered to you on real tableware — no paper and plastic around here. Guests who have eaten at Wolfgang Puck Express in Downtown Disney will understand the process here.
At dinner, guests will be seated and served as in other Disney table-service restaurants. Keep reading to find out about the lovely dining rooms you’ll be dining in! The restaurant seats 546 for lunch and 340 for dinner. (In the evenings the Rose Gallery is used as a staging area for table-service dining.)

The restaurant will be nestled underneath the mysterious castle (home to Beast from “Beauty and the Beast”) in the new Fantasyland “countryside”! Passing through an old gateway to a stone bridge and through wrought-iron gates with six beastly figures along the sides, guests are reminded of the story of the Beast’s transformation.
The doors inside the lower rocks (on the right) and between the green trees lead to Be Our Guest. Knock, knock!
When arriving for lunch, guests are directed through the Armor Hallway, where six suits of armor stand along the wall (listen closely for an occasional whisper from the metal figures). Wow! In the Beast’s Parlor, lunch orders will be placed at five guest-activated terminals. Dinner guests will enter directly into the majestic Ballroom.
Medieval windows extending to the ceiling will enchant diners seated in the delicate Rose Gallery with twirling, larger-than-life figures of Belle and Beast, forbidden, dramatic West Wing featuring an enchanted rose, or the two-story stately Ballroom styled with a domed ceiling, twinkling chandeliers and views of softly falling snow.
The Ballroom conveys the film’s elegance with a coffered, 20-foot ceiling with fluffy clouds and cherubs, sparkling chandeliers and a terrazzo floor. At the far end of the room, 18-foot-tall arched windows look out to the French countryside, where special effects create a light snowfall through the starry sky.
Stepping into the West Wing, guests will find a darker and more mysterious atmosphere. The glass bell jar containing the enchanted rose slowly drops petals as time runs out for the beast. Over the fireplace, a portrait of the young prince in human form is slashed by the beast’s claws. With flashes of lightning, the image in the portrait transforms from prince to Beast.
The Rose Gallery features a large music box centerpiece nearly 7 feet tall with Belle and the Beast slowly twirling atop. Paintings and tapestries adorn the walls, celebrating the characters from the story, with four of the tapestries inspired by background art from the film. Carved roses are featured throughout the room!
From the mysterious cracked door archinto the Beast’s Ballroom…
…to these gorgeous entryway mosaics, even the floor is tiled with intricate mosaics!
With imagineered details, guests will feel as if they’ve been transported inside the beloved film. Check out a video of the massive mural that serves as the ballroom’s backdrop!
Guests will be enchanted with original artwork and theme elements like this incredible portraitof the Beast himself.
We love this decor motif — the enchanted rosefrom Beauty and the Beast!
Any fan of the film knows that the symbol of the rose plays a significant role in the telling of Beast’s story.
When you arrive for the first time, take note of the roses carved into the backs of restaurant chairs.
Gilded roses appear to be high on walls…flanking a doorway, perhaps?
And be sure to look up when passing through the restaurant to take in the rich detail of the ceiling, as well as the roses on the capitals of these pillars.
This stunning stained-glass rose chandelier resembles cathedral windows! The stocky candles that flank the middle panel really convey the feeling that you’re in a castle. And check out that gorgeous blue and gold mosaic domed ceiling!
As in all Disney films, music is an important element throughout the Be Our Guest restaurant. Musical themes from the film add to the ambiance. In the Ballroom, a 50-piece orchestra recorded the music from the film. The Rose Gallery, features special music box arrangements of the same pieces heard in the Ballroom, in perfect synchrony, so that guests moving from room to room will hear the same tune transformed from one style to another. It’s in the West Wing, that a somber, melancholy arrangement will be heard.
