There is a LOT of news happening surrounding the Walt Disney World dining scene. First, many restaurants around the Resort are now up and running again as select Resort hotels reopened to guests just yesterday.
And yesterday we also got the FULL LIST of restaurants that will be opening in the parks when Magic Kingdom and Animal Kingdom reopen starting July 11th followed by Disney’s Hollywood Studios and EPCOT on July 15th! Among the options on the list for guests at Magic Kingdom starting July 11th is Be Our Guest Restaurant.
And it is not only one of the most popular restaurants in Magic Kingdom; it is, in fact, one of the most in-demand restaurants in all of Walt Disney World.
However, the reopening is not without some changes… some pretty big changes. For instance, we’ve already discussed that Breakfast will not be served at Be Our Guest Restaurant upon the reopening, and Lunch — which was previously a very popular counter service offering — will be the same as Dinner, featuring a prix-fixe meal at a Signature Dining price point.
You can read about the above changes by clicking here. But now we’d like to direct your attention to some changes we noticed on the prix-fixe menu, which includes the guest’s choice of an Appetizer and Entrée with a Dessert Trio to complete the meal.
Prix Fixe Menu Changes
Among the appetizers, the Escargot has been removed from the options for adults.
Guests will still be able to choose from French Onion Soup, Maine Lobster Bisque, Mixed Field Greens and a selection of Assorted Meats and Artisanal Cheese.
Adult Entrees previously included Spice-dusted Lamb Chops; however, that selection is also gone. Remaining choices feature the Herb-salted Pork Tenderloin, Center-cut Filet Mignon, Poulet Rouge Chicken, Pan-seared Sea Scallops and the plant-based Roasted Corn and Spinach Tortellini.
The little Belles and Beasts in your group will no longer find the Seared Shrimp Skewer as one of their Entrée choices. But they will be able to order their choice of Grilled Beef Tenderloin, House-made Macaroni & Cheese, or Pan-seared Chicken Breast.
And to go along with it, they can choose two from among Sautéed Zucchini, Steamed Green Beans, Sweet Potato Wedges, and Wild Rice. But the Cauliflower Fried Rice is no longer an option.
“As the Dining Room proudly presents…” your DESSERT, guests will still be presented with the Dessert Trio of a Lemon Jam Macaron, Dark Chocolate Truffle, and a White Chocolate “Chip” Cup filled with the famous GREY STUFF.
Children receive their own version of the dessert plate!
So, that is what the menu changes look like for the prix-fixe meal at Be Our Guest Restaurant.
Lunch Menu Changes
As you’ve noticed from above (and also here), Lunch at Be Our Guest will be an entirely different affair than the counter service option that has been available previously… at least upon the initial reopening of the restaurant.
That means that items which were previously unique to Lunch will not be available upon the reopening. These include the Corn Bisque as an Appetizer option.
The Entrees which will no longer be served include the Braised Chicken (Coq Au Vin style), the French Dip Sandwich, the Tuna Nicoise Salad, the Carved Turkey Sandwich, the Spring Shrimp or Chicken Salad, the Bean Cassoulet, and the Croque Monsieur Sandwich.
For the kiddos, the Feast a la Beast, Les Macaronis Maurice, and Chip’s Delight are among the no-longer-served options.
This also meant that the desserts — which featured Lemon Meringue and Triple Chocolate Cupcakes along with the signature “grey stuff” cupcake, called The Master’s Cupcake — will no longer be available; nor will the Lemon Raspberry Cream Puff or Crème Brulee.
But remember, the Grey Stuff IS included as part of the Dessert Trio, so you wont miss Lumiere’s prized offering. And more importantly, you won’t miss the chance to say…
“Try the Grey Stuff! It’s delicious!” when you dine once again at Be Our Guest Restaurant in Magic Kingdom! You can follow along with all the latest reopening news about Walt Disney World Resort by visiting the links below.
