    My children will be visiting WDW for the first time in July. I lucked out with breakfast reservations at BOG before the park opens. Not sure how early we should arrive. Any tips or suggestions?

    Hi Amy,

    There's something extra magical about a first trip to the Walt Disney World Resort; you must be so excited! Be sure to pick up  "1st Visit" Celebration Recognition Buttons for everyone when you arrive at your Resort Hotel, or you may get them at Guest Relations and merchandise locations at any of the Theme Parks. It's so much fun to have Cast Members and Guests share in celebrating your special first visit! 

    I can't think of a more enchanting way to start the day than breakfast at Be Our Guest Restaurant. The atmosphere and details inside (and outside) of Beast's Castle make it one of my favorite places to dine. You'll feel like you've stepped into the world of Disney's classic Beauty and the Beast. The Grand Ballroom is magnificent; the gorgeous chandeliers and the "snow" falling outside the windows are truly breathtaking! I highly recommend the Assorted Cured Meats and Cheese plate that is currently on the menu. I know it may sound like an odd choice for breakfast but, trust me, it is amazing! 

    You should plan on arriving at Magic Kingdom Park at least thirty (30) minutes prior to your Reservation time. Make sure you have your Advanced Dining Reservation confirmation number on hand to show the Cast Member at the MagicBand touch point entrance to the Park. You will then be able to make your way to Be Our Guest Restaurant for your "royal" meal. Be sure to stop for a photo in front of Cinderella Castle, it's a wonderful opportunity to capture some memories when Main Street, U.S.A. is not crowded.
