Bonjour from the Beast’s castle in New Fantasyland! Upon a recent visit to Magic Kingdom, a most magical surprise popped up on My Disney Experience — a last minute reservation to Be Our Guest Restaurant!! Dreams come true, indeed. Let this serve as a reminder to not only book your dining reservations as early as possible, but to also keep checking because you never know what can happen 🙂
Be Our Guest Restaurant is a part of New Fantasyland, and is one of the hardest reservations to book in all of Walt Disney World! No matter how many times you’ve been — and especially on your first visit — it’s always so magical to walk into the Beast’s castle.
It’s time to step back into the Beast’s Castle…
Be Our Guest Restaurant -- Dinner
…because we’re reviewing the brand new Dinner experience at Be Our Guest Restaurant in Magic Kingdom!
Be Our Guest Restaurant has been ever-changing since it opened in late 2012. Upon opening, the highly in-demand restaurant changed the game by offering both Counter Service by day for lunch, and Table Service dining each evening. The current meal options include a Counter Service prix-fixe Breakfast and a Counter Service a la carte Lunch during the day. But by night? Well, that’s the most recent change-up in the Castle, which brings us to our visit.
Previously, the Table Service Dinner at Be Our Guest Restaurant offered an a la carte menu for one Table Service Credit on the Disney Dining Plan. But as of July 27th, Dinner is a prix fixe, 3-course affair, requiring two Table Service credits (also known in Disney-speak as a Signature experience). It’s priced at $55 for adults and $35 for children ages 3 to 9. [Editor’s Update: the price of this meal changed in October 2018. The current price is $60 for adults and $36 for children ages 3 to 9.]
But before we dig in… let’s take a look around!
You can take a full tour of Be Our Guest Restaurant here. But because the chance to dine inside Beast’s Castle (from Beauty and the Beast, but of course!) is the major draw for this incredibly popular restaurant, it’s impossible to resist taking a look around this still-pretty-amazing space!

News came out last month about big changes coming to Dinner at Magic Kingdom’s Be Our Guest Restaurant, beginning July 27, 2018. We learned about dinner becoming a new prix fixe meal, and that the experience will require 2 Table Service credits on the Disney Dining Plan. We also received all sorts of menu details, which you can read about in full and see pictures of by clicking here.
One thing we didn’t learn, however, is what the Beast will be serving for dessert after dinner in his Castle. While guests will order their choice from the appetizer and entree selections, the final course remained a mystery… until now!!
It has never been easy to snag an Advance Dining Reservation at Be Our Guest Restaurant in Magic Kingdom ever since it opened in late 2012. But that has been especially true as of late, as reservations simply weren’t coming up for dinner availability at all for dates starting in late July. And now we know why…
Friends, it might be summer in the rest of the country, but at Walt Disney World, Autumn is ON! And while some might say it’s too early for Halloween and Pumpkin-Spiced-EVERYTHING, I am not that person. So you KNOW that while I am happily in Disney World to cover the 2017 Epcot Food and Wine Festival, I also HAD to grab my ticket for Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party!
Every year, Mickey welcomes his pals to this special extra-ticket event at the Magic Kingdom. This year, the party is taking place on select nights from August 25 through November 1. And you’re going to want to read on to find out where you can scare up goodies like THIS…
… plus TONS of other treats! And not just of the candy-in-my-trick-or-treat-bag variety, although there’s plenty of that, too! [Read more…]
Happy weekend and welcome to March! We’re so excited that it’s finally March because that means the Epcot Flower and Garden Festival has started. And that means food, lots of delicious food (and of course flowers).
At the end of the week we’re headed to the 2017 Disney California Adventure Food and Wine Festival. Check out the full booth menus for the DCA Food and Wine Festival!
And don’t forget, the 2017 Epcot Food and Wine Festival starts in August this year! Whew! We’re going to be a very busy bunch here at DFB!
We have a lot to share with you this week, so let’s jump right in…

It’s happened! Our very first visit to Red Rose Taverne is in the books!!
“What’s Red Rose Taverne?” you ask? It’s a pop-up restaurant — Disney style! An homage to all things Beauty and the Beast — just in time for the feature film to hit theaters in less than a month.
And instead of going to the trouble and expense of building Belle/Beast/Gaston their own place, those clever Imagineers decided to borrow Pinocchio’s digs for a bit. Yep — if you’re looking for Red Rose Taverne in Disneyland, head to the spot where Village Haus is in Fantasyland and you’ll find it!
As you can guess, this is a temporary situation. So intrepid Dining in Disneyland expert Heather Sievers didn’t waste any time getting there to try — well, pretty much everything on the menu.
See? It works. It’s not much of a stretch to think you’d find this medieval-esque building in a small, provincial town in France, mais oui? Clever types will note the sides of the Village Haus Sign peek out from beneath the Red Rose Taverne banner. And note that even though, Miss, this is France, Minute Maid is still the sponsor. 😉
And now, we get to play a fun little game that I like to call Who Is Paying Attention to the Deets? In this archway at the entrance, you usually find Pinocchio being escorted right into trouble by Gideon and Honest John. A red curtain conveniently transforms the space. [Read more…]
Do you have March 17th circled in rose-red for the premiere of the live-action Beauty and the Beast film?
If you’re among those eagerly awaiting the movie’s release (like us!), and you happen to have an upcoming trip to Disneyland planned, too, then you’ll definitely want to know about some limited-time eats and treats coming to Disneyland soon!
