    If you aren't eating at BOG can you still walk through the castle and take photos? I would love to see it but was unable to get ADRs for it.

    Hi Crystal,
    You must be so excited about your upcoming trip to Walt Disney World Resort! I'm sorry you were unable to nail down an Advanced Dining Reservation for Be Our Guest Restaurant, but I have some good news for you!

    During the day, Be Our Guest Restaurant is open for quick service lunch and the best part is you don't need a reservation. The menu is slightly different than dinner, but there are still many favorites to choose from, including The Master's Cupcake, which is topped with none other than the truly delicious "Grey Stuff!" Check out the full lunch menu here.

    Be Our Guest Restaurant serves lunch from 10:30 AM to 2:30 PM and tables are available on a first-come-first-served basis. As you face the Beast's castle in Fantasyland, look for a line forming to the right of the entrance, along the wall. When I visited recently without a reservation, I hopped in line at about 10 AM for an early lunch and I think we only waited for about 20 minutes.

    Finally, if you are staying in a Disney Resort hotel and you know which day you plan to visit Magic Kingdom park, you may be able to use the FastPass+ Expedited Arrival option for lunch. This will not count against your FastPass+ selections for attractions and it may save you a little time. I would also encourage you to continue checking for dinner reservations, because you never know who will make a cancellation.

    Please let us know if you have any other questions. Wishing you the best on your magical vacation!
