    We will be celebrating my daughter's 3rd birthday at WDW in 19 days. I cannot get dinner reservations at Be Our Guest so she can get her wish of meeting the Beast. Will they still let us come into his castle and meet him without reservations?

    Bonjour, Rene! Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel. Be Our Guest Restaurant is my favorite dining location in all of Magic Kingdom. Once you step through the gargoyle guarded doors of Beast's Enchanted Castle you feel immediately transported into the film because the detail in every room is nothing short of amazing. The food is also some of the best quality in all of the kingdom. I highly recommend the braised pork and the Master's Cupcake.

    By orders of the master it is forbidden for guests without reservations to enter Be Our Guest Restaurant. Although you haven't been able to secure a reservation yet, please don't give up! Keep checking back because once someone cancels their reservation it opens up availability. If I were you I would keep calling back every day to check for openings. I'm not sure how true this is, but I was once told by a Cast Member that the most cancellations happen just days before the actual reservations. If this is true, I bet you'll be able to snag one of those dining reservations as long as you keep your eyes peeled.

    My fingers are crossed for you. Happy birthday to your sweet princess, and I hope you have a magical Walt Disney World vacation!
