Magic Kingdom’s Be Our Guest restaurant is one of the most popular dining locations in all of Walt Disney World. Here’s my Be Our Guest restaurant review to help you decide if it’s a must-do on your Disney vacation!
Be Our Guest Restaurant Review: Basics
Be Our Guest is located in Fantasyland in Magic Kingdom. The restaurant is set inside of Beast’s Castle (from Beauty and the Beast fame, of course).
Be Our Guest is open for lunch and dinner every day, currently from 10 am to 10 pm.
Since this is an in-demand dining location, I recommend making reservations as soon as possible, ideally 60 days in advance.
Remember that if you have a Disney resort reservation you can make dining reservations for your entire stay, even many days into your trip. You might need to use this tactic to get the time you want at Be Our Guest.
The cuisine at Be Our Guest is French-inspired, though I don’t find the food to be very adventurous. Picky eaters will be able to find something familiar.

Be Our Guest Restaurant Review: Dining Rooms
There are three distinct dining rooms at Be Our Guest Restaurant. Since you can choose where you sit for breakfast and lunch it helps to know what to expect. At dinner, you can request to be seated in a specific room.
The largest room is the Grand Ballroom, pictured above. It is very impressive and there is always snow falling outside of the “windows” on the far side of the room. That said, it can get quite loud and chaotic in there, so it might not be the best choice for little kids.
The West Wing is the smallest (and darkest) dining room. It features a portrait of the Prince which magically changes to the Beast every so often. It also has the magic rose with petals that fall periodically.
My six-year-old daughter was terrified by this room but other kids that age may really like the spooky ambiance.
Both times I’ve eaten at Be Our Guest we dined in the Castle Gallery room. It features a large music box in the center of the room that the Beast gave to Belle as a wedding gift. There are paintings of Belle and the Beast around the room that are fun to check out as well.
Be Our Guest Restaurant Review Summary
The setting at Be Our Guest restaurant is highly themed and immersive. You’ll really feel like you are part of the Beauty & The Beast story when you dine there.
The high cost for the fixed-price table service meal just doesn’t make sense to me at Magic Kindom.
Unless you are a hard-core Beauty & The Beast fan, I’d skip it in favor of Magic Kingdom Quick Service food to maximize my time at this super busy park!
