Be Our Guest Restaurant made its debut in Walt Disney World’s Magic Kingdom as part of the Fantasyland expansion in 2012, and the park’s dining scene has never been the same since!
Be Our Guest Restaurant has enchanted guests ever since it opened, delivering French-inspired cuisine right inside of the Beast’s castle from the beloved animated film Beauty and the Beast. Its completely immersive setting is unlike any other, and it’s the reason why it is almost always a challenge for guests to snag an Advance Dining Reservation for this in-demand dining experience!
In addition to its uniquely memorable setting, Be Our Guest Restaurant also made history as being the first restaurant in the Magic Kingdom to serve alcohol to guests.
PLEASE NOTE: Upon the reopening of Magic Kingdom, Be Our Guest Restaurant serves only Lunch and Dinner, and both meals feature a prix fixe menu (which was previously the Dinner-only style of service). This page has been updated accordingly; however, we are keeping our reviews and information about the previous Breakfast and Lunch service accessible on this page for both historic purposes and in case the restaurant returns to its previous service styles for all three meals in the future.
See our ORIGINAL Be Our Guest Restaurant “EVERYTHING ON THE MENU! Review” here! Be Our Guest Restaurant serves Beer and Wine — it was the first restaurant to do so in the Magic Kingdom.
You can see our most recent review of the prix fixe meal at Be Our Guest Restaurant here, and you can also see our original review for the Prix Fixe, Signature meal from when it debuted in July 2018 here.

PLEASE NOTE: Since the reopening of Magic Kingdom on July 11, 2020, Be Our Guest Restaurant serves only Lunch and Dinner, and both meals feature a prix fixe menu (which was previously the Dinner-only style of service).
Be Our Guest Restaurant previously featured a Counter-Service (fast-casual) Breakfast and Lunch, then Table Service (sit down) for Dinner. Breakfast and Lunch were unique at Be Our Guest Restaurant in that guests could make Advanced Dining Reservations for what was a Counter Service experience due to the location’s popularity.
And for lunch, guests could previously pre-order their meals using My Disney Experience within 30 days of their dining date. For those who chose not to pre-order their lunch, touch-screen, automated terminals were available for guests to customize their orders. For special dietary requests and cash orders, cashiers were also available.
Once your order was placed (either online or via the My Disney Experience app in advance or at the restaurant), guests would sit down and your Breakfast or Lunch order will be delivered to you on real tableware — no paper and plastic around here. 😉

Click these links to see a Be Our Guest Restaurant Photo Tour, and Photos of Be Our Guest Restaurant’s West Wing and Rose Gallery. The restaurant is 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!
Upon arrival, guests enter directly into the majestic Ballroom. Medieval windows extending to the ceiling 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 arch into the Beast’s Ballroom…
…to these gorgeous entryway mosaics, even the floor is tiled with intricate mosaics!
With imagineered details, guests 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 portrait of the Beast himself.
We love this decor motif — the enchanted rose from 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 add to the motif.
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.
