Lunchtime at Be Our Guest Restaurant

On Saturday November 23rd we took a day trip to Walt Disney World to Magic Kingdom with some friends and we decided to have lunch at ‘Be Our Guest‘ which does not require reservations during lunch time because it’s considered a Quick Service location. Well, this was our first time at Be Our Guest and we had no idea what to expect (i.e the wait time, ordering process, seating arrangement, etc.) So I’m going to take you all on our journey as ‘First Time Visitors‘ to ‘Be Our Guest‘..

We were greeted by a cast member whom escorted us to the back of the line, it looked long, but the cast member reassured us it was about a 30 min wait which I’ll tell you wasn’t as long as we expected and it did go by rather quickly. When we got to the front of the line, another cast member asked us how many in our party, which she then proceeded to tell the other cast members inside the restaurant the party size and then we were escorted in. Another shorter line then followed which at this point they have rotating menu screens in frames showing you the menu items and prices to help in making your selection. Once you arrive to the front of that line, you are greeted by another cast member at a podium whom then asks you again, how many in your party, now at this point I have to offer you a tip.. Though we had 4 members in our party, we were going ‘dutch’ (paying for ourselves, not as a group) so you do need to specify that to this cast member because he/she will then give you a rose disk which is used to place your order at the touch screen order system. (Yes, you do place your own order.) The rose disk is what keeps track of your order and who you are, think of it as a GPS tracking device that helps the servers locate you in the restaurant where you will be seating.

Once you place your order and you have your receipt in hand, you move through the grand arches to the dining rooms. You will first walk through the ‘Main Ballroom‘, the biggest and noisiest dining room at BOG, now if you move straight ahead and to the rear you will be in the ‘West Wing‘ that is where you’ll see the famous ‘Rose in the Glass Dome‘ not as noisy as the main Ballroom, it’s small and it’s a fairly dark room.

Now, if once you go through the grand arches into the Ballroom, you make a right, and then another right at the other archway, you will be going into ‘The Rose Garden‘ that is where you will find the ‘Belle and Beast Music Box‘..  An average sized, much quieter room in Beast Castle, and that is where we sat. We went to the service carts to get our utensils, napkins and such and if you ordered a fountain drink, you go and serve yourself at the drink station, (bottled drinks will be served to you by your server). It didn’t take long for our food to be served. The server found us with no problem, confirmed our order, took our rose disks and served us.

The food was nicely presented, hot, fresh and delicious. No complaints what so ever. My husband ordered the ‘Braised Pork‘ and I ordered the ‘Croque Monsieur‘ and for desert we both ordered the same thing, the ‘Triple Chocolate Cupcake‘.. 

It was an excellent experience, we truly enjoyed ourselves, it was absolutely Beautiful and we highly recommend it. ºoº
