    Debating whether to eat at Be Our Guest for quick service lunch or sit down dinner. How would you compare as far as convienence and experience go? We are there 3/30/13-4/6/13. Thanks.

    It's funny, Lynda, because my fellow Disney Mom, Jodie, and I were just having this discussion the other day.  Both of us, you see, have reservations for dinner at Be Our Guest Restaurant during upcoming trips but after having experienced Be Our Guest for lunch, we were second guessing dinner.  In all fairness, I have not experienced dinner at the new restaurant, but I have done lunch there.  And lunch--let me tell you--was fabulous!  From start to finish the whole experience was awesome.  Unlike traditional counter service restaurants, the food at Be Our Guest was delivered right to our table, on real dishes as opposed to paper.  The food tasted great, too!

    The perk of visiting for dinner is that you might save yourself some time as waits for lunch tend to be fairly lengthy at this point in time.  Also, beer and wine are served with dinner whereas they are not available during lunch.  Of course, menu items vary as well; you could get a fancier meal at dinner.  I don't think the experience as a whole varies greatly, though.

    In the end, my husband and I have decided to go ahead and keep our dinner reservation even though meals are a bit more pricey during dinner hours.  If you're on a budget and looking to garner the Be Our Guest experience for less money, I can whole-heartedly endorse lunch as a great value!
