    I can't get reservations for Be Our Guest but would love to get my sons in there- does anyone have experience with counter service for lunch? Tips on times/ avoiding the wait? We will be at Magic Kingdom Tuesday March 12 and Wednesday March 13.

    Hi Kirsten!

    You're vacation is coming up so fast! You must be getting very excited!

    I've had the opportunity to have lunch at Be Our Guest Restaurant twice recently and it is simply awesome! The counter service menu is fantastic! My husband and son loved the Grilled Steak Sandwich while I had the Braised Pork and thought it was to die for! One of my favorite parts about having lunch there is that you can dine in the West's very cool!

    Lunch is served from 11:00 a.m. until 2:00 p.m.. I recommend arriving at the restaurant at around 10:45 or even just a little earlier. The line may look intimidating, but it moves rather quickly. I've never waited more than 30 minutes to get in. I'm certain that you and your sons will just love it! Be sure to stop for pictures as you're walking through the Castle.

    I hope this helps and that you enjoy your time at the Magic Kingdom next week!

    Have a Pixie Dusted vacation!
