Disney World is known for many things. One of the most popular is their cuisine. A day at Disney Park will always entail delicious treats and memorable meals. In Magic Kingdom, there are so many delightful options to choose from. For table service meals, there is one that seems to stand out.
Disney’s ‘Be Our Guest’ Restaurant opened in Magic Kingdom in November 2012, fashioned after the classic film, ‘Beauty and The Beast’(1991). The highly anticipated restaurant did not disappoint with detail, homage to the film, and of course, delicious food. In Fantasyland, Guests can view the Beast’s castle even if they aren’t stopping in to dine.
With reservations highly recommended, Disney allows Guests to book them at the earliest 60 days before their trip. ‘Be Our Guest’ is open for lunch and dinner, but it most certainly comes with a price tag. Advertised as four dollar signs, Guests are definitely paying for their whole experience.
But what truly makes ‘Be Our Guest’ so special?
Is, Be Our Guest the Best?
The decadent dining experience allows Guests to “Enter the Beast’s enchanted castle for an unforgettable dining experience,” as Disney writes. The restaurant offers three dining areas, already making it more unique than other restaurants. Disney designed three different themed rooms for an immersive experience for Guests. The rooms include The West Wing, The Grand Ballroom, and The Rose Gallery, allowing a different experience each time you visit.
Disney’s ‘Be Our Guest’ offers cuisine with French flare since, after all, “This is France!” Their menu includes decadent foods like escargot and trout, along with more classic favorites like fillet mignon and roasted chicken. As a diner, you’ll definitely want to come with an appetite and with a palette for different kinds of theme Park entrees. Additionally, it is the only restaurant, including quick service options, that serves alcohol.
So, is it the best? While some fans may not agree for reasons like it’s not a character experience, it is definitely number one on the list for places to try if you haven’t yet. Disney Imagineers have found a way to make Guests feel a part of the story with stainless steel windows, detailed sculptures, appearances by the Beast himself, and top-notch cuisine. If that doesn’t do it for you, the dome-shaped ballroom with chandeliers, the enchanted rose on display, or maybe a break with a glass of wine will do all the convincing for you!
