I was lucky enough to attend the first dinner at the Be Our Guest restaurant on Tuesday, 10/30. This restaurant is going to be the hardest place to secure for some time to come. It was only 1 TS credit on the DDP.

We started with the assorted cured meats and sausages platter, french onion soup and the garden salad. All were very good, the salad has a lot of vinegar.



Thyme-scented Pork Rack Chop


Grilled Strip Steak


Sauteed Shrimp and Scallops


Dessert Cart


Strawberry Cream Cheese Cupcake


Chocloate Cream Puff


Dinner Menu


Everything about this place is just simply amazing. The atmosphere and the food were both excellent. I love the falling snow outside the window in the ballroom.

We had the opportunity to eat both lunch and dinner at BOG. They are two totally different experiences!

This past Monday we had the opportunity to dine and evaluate the Magic Kingdom’s newest restaurant, Be Our Guest. Lunch and dinner are completely different experiences. They have different menus, way to order food, pay for food, and the list goes on. However, there was one commonality, the food was superb!



Lunch begins service at 10:30am. Disney’s dining plan is accepted, it is worth one QS credit. Disney’s Tables in Wonderland is not accepted at lunch, but it is accepted for dinner. We arrived at 10:15 and the queue to eat extended just beyond the bridge. Two families after us, the cm moved that portion of the line across the path and along the construction wall.

This is a picture of the empty bridge. The whole right side of it was filled with people waiting to eat lunch.






The gate was opened, but it was where they would close that the queue began for lunch.



Once the restaurant opened they allowed only a certain number of people into the building at a time.






As you enter through the door, the tapestries and mosaic capture one's attention.






When it was our turn we entered a hallway lined on both sides with suits of armor and displays of the menu
















A cm directed people either to the right or left queues. Each queue ended at a podium. Here a cm gave each party a special rose that is equipped with GPS and instructions to find a table and place the rose in the center of the table after ordering and paying for lunch.


Ordering and paying are done at touch screens located in the room after the podium. This room is decorated with a large chair and fireplace. There is a rose pattern and the screen instructs the guest to move the rose over it. The screen asks how many are dining then a menu pops up on the screen. The prompts are user friendly. Payment is also done using the touch screen and credit card scanner.

I took pictures of the room, but didn't take any of the kiosks. I don't know how I missed them.






We were told we could choose any dining room, but to quickly make a choice and put the rose in the center of the table. Once the rose was in place we could walk around. There was a beverage station with soda and coffee. Silverware was located on a cart beside the beverage station. Food was delivered to us inside a glass covered cart, condiments were included as was the milk Anakin ordered.

With the rose on the table we set out to explore the three dining rooms. We chose the Gallery Dining room. There were B&B portraits all over. In the center of the room was a dancing Belle and Beast like one you would see in a music box.
















The Beverage Station






Silverware Cart


The Ballroom Dining Room

The view from the windows depicts mountains and snow.






The West Wing Dining Room

The ambiance here is dark and dangerous. As soon as Anakin entered the room, he wanted out. The rose with the falling petals that Belle found in the West Wing is the center of attention here. In the blurry picture you can see the glass covered carts that are used to deliver lunch.

Lunch came when we were done exploring.

Dh ordered a Grilled Steak Sandwich with Garlic Butter Spread and Pommes Frites. He said that the meat was nicely cooked, very tender, melted in his mouth and trimmed of fat. However, he said that he kept feeling like something was missing. Onions, pepper, or more spice would have been good. He said there was some kind of leaf lettuce in it.


I ordered French Onion Soup and a Strawberry Cream Cheese Cupcake. I knew we had dinner reservations for 4:55pm at BOG, so I didn't want to eat too much. The onion soup had a crouton and melted cheese. The description of the cupcake was vanilla sponge cake, strawberry mousse filling and cream cheese frosting. Those pink balls on top were crunchy like the crunch you get from a Nestle's Crunch Bar, and very tart like a sweet tart on strawberry overdrive.




Anakin got a Kid's Turkey Sandwich. Typically this comes on multigrain bread, but he chokes from the grainy fibers, so I asked if it could either come without bread or on white. It came on what tasted like a tapioca bread. There was turkey and tomatoes on the sandwich. His sides were french fries and peach applesauce. The peach applesauce tasted primarily of peach. Apple could not be detected except in consistency.



He does not like tomatoes and would not eat the bread that had tomato imprints. So I got myself a half of tomato sandwich, lol.

Be Our Guest Dinner

4:55 was our dinner time. We returned to the check-in about twenty minutes early since there was a large line there. While I was checking in, their computer system crashed. The cm apologized for the delay. There were two cm at two different computers making reservations and checking people in. Both of their computers crashed. It didn't take long for the computers to begin working. Once they worked, check in was a breeze.

We asked if we could be seated in the either the Gallery or the Ballroom. The cm said that the Gallery was closed for dinner, but she put in a request for the Ballroom. Anakin was scared to death of the West Wing, it was too dark.

We were handed a pager and asked to wait on the bridge. Our pager went off almost as soon as we found a spot on the bridge!

We walked up to where they were bringing guests into the castle. There were cm looking for their guests, but they were not looking for us. We were assured that our cast member would be out shortly to seat us.

They asked people in w/c and ECV if they could transfer. If so, they were asked to park outside.

The aisles are narrow. Food is delivered in a glass enclosed cart. There isn't room for both a w/c or ECV and their cart in most of the aisles.

Our server was Chris. He was excellent!! He saw dh struggling to see the menu and offered a flashlight to him immediately. He informed us he has 3 flashlights and they are especially needed when he serves in the West Wing. Dh's problem was putting off getting progressive lenses, not that the Ballroom was too dark. He needed to take off his glasses to see, lol!

He asked what we'd like to drink. While he was getting our drink order, I asked if it was ok to get our food order. We explained that we didn't know how long Anakin would be willing to sit for dinner. He understood completely and was great communicating to Anakin!













Shortly after we ordered he brought out rolls and butter, four rolls and one pat of butter. The rolls tasted and looked just like the rolls at the Coral Reef...YUM!!


I ordered Sauteed Shrimp and Scallops with Seasonal Vegetables served in a Puff Pastry with a Creamy Lobster Sauce. It was $22.99.


My meal was excellent. The shrimp and scallops were cooked to perfection. The lobster sauce was delicious.

Dh ordered Layered Ratatouille, oven-baked zucchini, eggplant, mushrooms, tomatoes, and caramelized onions sliced and layered on quinoa served with a bell pepper sauce. $15.99.

I tasted a bite of Dh's. It was good, but mine was much better IMHO.


Anakin ordered the kid's Grilled Chicken with double portion of fries since he doesn't like macaroni topped with marinara sauce and mozzarella or seasonal vegetables.

He complained that the fries were too salty. Next time we eat there, we will ask for unsalted fries. His chicken was nicely cooked. There was some kind of spice on the top, because he complained that the outside burned his lips and tongue. He said it wasn't temperature. We were able to cut off the top and he ate the rest and enjoyed it.



Dessert is presented via dessert cart instead of menu.




I got a Lemon Meringue Cupcake. IMHO this cupcake tasted better than the strawberry cupcake. I'm usually a huge fan of strawberry, but this lemon cupcake takes the prize.


Dh got a Strawberry Cupcake since he loved it so much at lunch time.


and Anakin got a Triple Chocolate Cupcake (do you see his Masher Yoda potatoe head in the backround?)


I forgot to mention about the cupcake paper. It isn't paper. But rather something very sturdy and nearly impossible to tear. At lunch time our cupcake went flying out of my hand when I attemped to take off the paper. So when our server got our cupcakes out of the case I asked him if there is a secret to getting the cupcake out of the paper? He said the cupcakes are intended to be eaten while in the cupcake wrapper. He gave us all forks.

After dinner, we were invited to a computer to take a survey and rate our dining experience.

Our next reservation is for March near our birthdays. I look forward to dining again!
