Opening this holiday season, the Be Our Guest Restaurant will open its doors in the Beauty and the Beast section of New Fantasyland at the Magic Kingdom. The restaurant will transport guests inside Beast’s castle to dine in rooms inspired by the Beauty and the Beast Disney animated movie. Pam Brandon announced the menu and advanced dinner reservation dates on the Disney Parks Blog.
Guests will be able to make reservations starting in late August, though the official opening date for the restaurant has not yet been announced.
UPDATE: Reservations will be taken starting at
noon 7 a.m. on Aug. 20 at 407-WDW-DINE. You can make reservations up to 180 days beforehand. The first seating will be for dinner on Nov. 19.
The restaurant will offer quick service by day with the use of self serve terminals for ordering, then wait at a table for the food to be served on china, not paper. By night, the restaurant will be transformed into sit-down table service restaurant. The Disney Dining Plan will be accepted. Guests will be able to use one Quick Serve Restaurant entitlement for lunch and one Table Service Restaurant entitlement for dinner.
The menu was created by Chef Michael Deardorff, a 25-year Disney chef who was recently as part of the opening for the restaurants at Aulani, Disney’s Hawaiian resort.
