Friday Feast: Lunch at Be Our Guest Restaurant

To say that this restaurant was on the highly anticipated list of places to visit is an understatement.  Ever since the menu was released, I was chomping at the bit to have lunch at the Be Our Guest Restaurant.  Why lunch?  Well there is one menu item that was calling my name and it seriously lived up to all my expectations!

But before we go there, let’s start from the beginning.  Look at the amazing theming at the entrance of the restaurant…

When dining for lunch, you are sent to the left of the entrance on on a queue to place your order.  While waiting, you are surrounded by various suits of armor who are having a candid conversation 🙂  Make sure to keep you ears open!

There are digital menus all in the entrance way so you can make  figure out what you want before entering the ordering area…obviously I have cupcakes on the mind…

When you come to the ordering area, the host explains the RFID Rose you will get after placing your order and directs you to the next available kiosk.

The “rose” is a sort of tracking device that you place on your table that allows the servers to find you and deliver your meal…super cool technology!!  When I visited, it was still soon after the restaurant opened so they had cast members assisting with the ordering process.  It was fairly simple to understand so I’m not sure how necessary this was…

After placing our order, we wer directed to find a table in one of the three dining rooms and place our rose in the center of the table.  The first room you enter is the Ballroom which is expansive and elegant.


To the right of the Ballroom is the Rose Gallery.  This area was actually closed when I was there for “technical difficulties” but I was snuck my way in to snap a photo 🙂

But my favorite room has to be The West Wing!  It’s dark, mysterious and has everything that embodies Beauty and the Beast.

Sadly there was no room in the West Wind so we found a table in the Ballroom, placed our rose in the center of the table and waited for our food to arrive.

I think my favorite thing about the restaurant (well besides the food) is is how the food arrives!  The servers bring it out on on these fabulously old fashioned rolling carts.  It just fits perfectly within the theming of the restaurant.

So now onto the food…my favorite part!  I’m going to start with the quick service dish to top all quick service dishes: Braised Pork.  YUM!  This is served with veggies, mashed potatoes and bacon…how can you go wrong with that?!  Honestly, this is one of the best dishes I’ve had on WDW property, and you know how I love to eat!!

I was with a group of about 8 other people so I got to see many of the other dishes they had to offer…they all looked delicious!!

But seriously…don’t waste your time on anything else.  Just order the Braised Pork and come back to thank me later….it’s SO good.

Overall, I love the restaurant and can’t wait to go back!  Next time, I hope to have dinner there so I can finally have a glass of wine in the Magic Kingdom!

  • Great restaurant overview! We have eaten all over WDW too, and I agree, this is one of the best meals we’ve had. The pork dish was AMAZING! We were one of the first people in on the day we went and the chef and cast members were out by front doors singing and clapping us in….it was magical

    • How fun that they sing for you!! So glad you liked the pork as much as I did…sigh, I want it right now!

  • The next time you go for dinner, you MUST have the Mac n cheese as a side. It’s the best I’ve ever had!!! The Ribeye wasn’t too shabby either! 🙂

  • Sarah, I ate there on arrival day this past Feb..Loved it! I was solo as I was waiting for my friends to drive down later that night. I did wait about 35 min or so but it was totally worth it and I’d do it again. I had the Quinoa salad and I thought it was great.I also had the French Onion soup because I love it and I order it everywhere, lol. I wouldn’t hesitate to eat lunch there again, and I’m hoping to try dinner there sometime, too

    • From what I hear 35 min is a typical wait. Next time I think I’m going to have to try that soup!!

  • We went for dinner to celebrate my Goofy challenge finish! We started with mixed green salads and then I had the scallops and shrimp for dinner and the chocolate cream puff for dessert. Tom had the thyme scented pork chop and the triple chocolate cupcake. Everything was very tasty and of course we had the grey stuff too! We loved the atmosphere too!
