The Be Our Guest restaurant, located in new Fantasyland in the Magic Kingdom, has been one of the most popular restaurants in all of Disneydom since it’s grand opening. Currently, Be Out Guest is a Table Service restaurant for dinner and a Quick Service restaurant for lunch, if you are on one of the Disney Dining plans. Dinner reservations are basically impossible to get, and have been for some time. Even booking 180 days in advance doesn’t guarantee availability.
Lunch has been even more popular, if that is possible. Partly because it is quite a bit cheaper and partly because many people can’t get into eat for dinner, so they try lunch. Originally, Be Our Guest was first come first serve for lunch hours, but that lead to extremely long lines (sometimes as long as 2 hours, just to each lunch). For a few months, Disney World tried to give access to lunch patrons only via a FastPass type system where you had to receive an email and then immediately sign up online for a reserved time.
Starting February 25, 2015, Walt Disney World will be adding the Be Our Guest restaurant to the reservation system for lunch hours. Reservations will be on the same terms as all other Disney restaurants. For all Disney World Resort guests, reservations can be made for your entire stay 180 days in advance of check in. For all non-Disney guests, reservations can be made 180 days in advance of the dining date.
Lunch is served daily from 10:30 AM– 2:30 PM. Reservations can be made beginning February 25, 2015 via My Disney Experience, by visiting www.disneyworld.com/dine or by calling 407-WDW-DINE. In addition to being able to make reservations, you will also be able to pre-order your entire meal, expediting the process of eating at Be Our Guest. You can pre-order your meal 30 days prior to your dining reservations, all the way up to 5 minutes before your reservation. Pre-ordering your meal is not a requirement.
Lunch at Be Our Guest will continue to be considered a Quick Service experience if you are planning on using one of the Disney Dining plans.
