Be Our Guest Adds Breakfast Starting March 20

by Mommy Frog on March 16, 2015 10 Orlando

Reservations at Be Our Guest - BeastUpdate: Starting March 20, Be Our Guest Restaurant will begin testing a prix fixe breakfast from 8 a.m. to 10 a.m. daily through June 18. Breakfast will be fast casual with a French flair. Each meal will include a pastry basket, an entree and self-service beverages. Entree options include assorted meats and cheeses served with marmalade, fresh fruit and a baguette; eggs Florentine served in a puff pastry shell with country ham and roasted tomatoes; open-faced bacon-and-poached-egg sandwich with Brie and the Croissant Doughnut, a fried doughnut topped with banana caramel sauce, chocolate ganache and whipped cream. It sounds positively decadent!

Guests can make reservations starting March 17 for dates March 20 through June 18 through this link or by calling 407-WDW-DINE. Advance reservations are not required but are encouraged. The cost of the Be Our Guest breakfast is $19.99 plus tax for adults and $11.99 plus tax for children ages 3-9.

Ever since it's opening in fall 2012, Be Our Guest has become one of the toughest dinner reservations in all of Disney World, right up there with Cinderella's Royal Table and the Chef's Table at Victoria and Albert's. While it's quick-service at lunch from 10:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m., reservations are accepted, and this is the best way to insure you get a table. Guests who snag lunch reservations have the option of pre-ordering meals 30 days prior and up to five minutes before their reservation time. Away from the hustle and bustle of Magic Kingdom, Be Our Guest is quite otherworldly.

One look inside the opulent castle, and you will see why. The Beast himself welcomes guests to his castle at dinner. While he is not present during lunch, his presence is felt all around. (Those of you looking for Belle will find her in her cottage at the nearby Enchanted Tales With Belle attraction.) The moment you walk in to his castle, you're transported into "Beauty and the Beast," with three spectacularly themed dining rooms  that draw from the story.

Reservations at Be Our Guest - Ballroom

There is the West Wing with its enchanted rose that periodically drops petals, the Rose Gallery that features an oversized, rotating music box that shows Beast and Belle dancing, and the main ballroom with its glorious chandeliers and floor-to-ceiling windows that reveal the mountains and gently falling snow outside. Reservation at Be Our Guest - Herb-crusted lamb   Reservations at Be Our Guest - The Master's Cupcake The food is upscale French cuisine and nothing you would expect at a theme park. Yes, even a Disney theme park. Believe it or not, I dined on herb-crusted lamb with a stone-ground mustard demi-glace on my last trip (Leap had pan-seared chicken with truffle butter)! Wines and beers are served with dinner, including French selections. Lunch is quick-service, with upscale items such as tuna nicoise salad, braised pork and French onion soup. You can enjoy the "grey stuff" atop The Master's Cupake. As Chip says, it's delicious. But let's get back to the topic at hand! With such elegant surroundings and amazing food, it's no wonder that it is very popular and increasingly hard to get into. While we can't guarantee you'll be successful, we wanted to share some of our tips for getting a reservation at Be Our Guest. Please be sure to share your own success stories in comments below!

How to get a lunch reservation at Be Our Guest

Reservations at Be Our Guest - Entrance

Although it is quick-service at lunch, guests now have the option to make a standard Advance Dining Reservation at Be Our Guest. This is a recent change, and previously lunch was walk-up or available as a special FastPass+ reservation for resort guests only.

Reservations at Be Our Guest - Ballroom

What this means is that guests who wish to dine at Be Our Guest for lunch should try to make a reservation (following the same advice as is listed below for dinner). Failing that, it's likely possible to walk up and ask about availability. We would suggest checking in right before the restaurant opens. Alternatively, you might find walk-up availability before lunch closes at 2:30 p.m.

How to get a dinner reservation at Be Our Guest

Reservations at Be Our Guest - West Wing

With dinner being table service, it is even more popular than lunch! As is the case with lunch, resort guests have a better shot at getting a dinner reservation since they have the ability to make advance dining reservations for the length of their stay up to 10 days starting 180 days out. Non-resort guests can only make reservations 180 days in advance of that one day. That's a big advantage and explains why even the most popular restaurants can be sold out at 180 days.

Here are the best ways to get a dinner reservation at Be Our Guest:

  • Reservations at Be Our Guest - Enchanted RoseFor resort guests, try making an ADR the full 180 days in advance online starting at 6 a.m. Eastern. Yes, we recommend you set your alarm clock for this one! Your chances are even better if you plan your visit to Be Our Guest later during your trip.
  • If you are not staying onsite, you've still got a shot, but you need to try to make the ADR at 6 a.m. online 180 days out.
  • If at first you don't succeed, try, try again. You could randomly try snagging a reservation every day leading up to your trip, but you'll likely have the most success within the two-three days of when you want to visit. This is because guests who have booked a reservation had to guarantee their visit with a credit card. If they see they won't be able to use the reservation after all, most will cancel their reservation to avoid the penalty. Try calling as well as using the website. You might get lucky.
  • When all else fails, walk up at 4:30 p.m. This is when Be Our Guest opens for dinner, and you just might find cast members can work you in right then!

We had luck getting a day-of Be Our Guest dinner reservation on our last trip, thanks to the rain. I had been checking periodically in the days leading up to our visit, but didn't have any luck snagging a reservation. But when the skies opened up late one afternoon, I kept checking for cancelations. And sure enough, a few times opened up! Dinner was every bit as magical as we were expecting it to be, and Lily and Tad absolutely loved meeting Beast.

My mom and I are planning a short girls' trip for this November to celebrate my 21st birthday. We're attending the last day of the Food and Wine Festival and the first day of MVMCP. Today is 180 days out from our last park day and I'm trying to get a reservation for breakfast at BOG. Do you know if they're still doing those reservations or if there is something special being done for breakfast at BOG?

Hi Cassidy,

As of now, the breakfast is a "test" and hasn't been extended past mid-July. We will let you know if it does!

This is going to seem like a dumb question but can you get The Master's Cupcake (The Grey Stuff Cupcake) at breakfast. I am sure you cannot; however, my son and I are going to Disney in May and we have a breakfast reservation. However, we would like to try this cupcake.

Hi Angela,

Unfortunately, it is only available at lunch. You can have The "Grey Stuff" at dinner, which is a chocolate shell and cookie crème with Lumiere’s special “Grey Stuff.” Si bon!

Last year when we went I got a reservation by waking up and calling first thing. We got the reservation I wanted for our last day there. And we also got the FP+ lunch dining option too! I recommend the Dinner. It was the best meal of the whole trip!!!!

Today my husband and myself walked up to the hostess at the crystal palace to see if they had room for us after 3 pm. The hostess "Norma" said not at that time but she would check to see what time they could seat us. She looked up at us and with a big smile asked if we would be interested in dining at B.Our Guest" at 4:40 pm that night. We dined in the beautiful ballroom and were even served the "grey stuff" since I was celebrating "30 years" cancer free. Magical Day! !!

I don't stay on resort for the reservations weren't available when it came time for Disney regular admission holders to make reservations. I went to wait in line for lunch and found out that there were employees outside taking reservations THAT NIGHT for late cancellations. I got a slot within 5 minutes of waiting! Apparently they do this daily, so I would definitely recommend anyone hoping for a reservation who can't get one to try this, the day of.

My family and I had our last Disney trip planned at the right time. Disney invited us to test the FP+ option for lunch at Be Our Guest. I was so excited because as a mom this was the one thing I wanted to do while at MK. It worked out wonderful. We were able to pre-order our meals, we walk up at our assigned time to check in, they handed us a red rose, we got our drinks and found the seat of our choice in the West Wing, then our meals magically arrived within about 5 minutes. Our meals were delicious. Even my skeptical, mid-western, meat and potatoes loving husband said it was one of his favorite dining experiences on the trip. If you are on property I recommend the FP+ option for lunch. Next trip I will be setting my alarm to make the ADR for dinner.

For our trip this past November we didn't know what we were doing as far as ADR's until closer to our trip and booked the trip after the 180 day window. We were also staying offsite. But we were able to get into every table service restaurant we wanted! We went during the dining promotion, so reservations were hard to get. We got many by just checking multiple times a day. But for the hardest ones (Chef Mickey's, Ohana, Cinderella's Royal Table, and Be Our Guest) we found a thread on disboards.com where people would post before canceling their ADR's and coordinate with you so you could pick it up right when they dropped it! It was a fun way to get ADR's. :) It mainly takes patience and diligence, but you CAN get those hard ones! We got most of them in the three weeks before our trip.
