    Hi! We are going to Disney in March and it is almost time to start making reservations for dining. What my children want to know is if you dine at Be Our Guest restaurant, can you meet the beast? And if so, can you meet him at lunch and dinner? Thanks

    Hi, Kim!

    I'm excited that you know about making your Advanced Dining Reservations 180 days in advance! This is especially important when you have your heart set on some of the more popular restaurants at Walt Disney World!

    The new Be Our Guest Restaurant is very high up on the list for many Guests! Beast's enchanted castle is a must see, as is all of New Fantasyland. One of the most unique things about this amazing venue is that it's a Quick Service for lunch and magically turns into a Table Service at dinner. During lunch service, you'll place your order on a touch screen terminal and your food will magically be delivered to your table. All 3 dining rooms are open for seating. There are no Character greetings during lunch.

    At dinner time, seating is available in the grand 2-story ballroom and in Belle's book-filled library. The mysterious West Wing is not open for seating during dinner time because the Beast visits periodically throughout the evening to pose for pictures and greet his Guests. It's really a treat to meet the Beast! Please keep in mind that this location is extremely popular and reservations are strongly recommended. This is one of those where you'll want to make your reservation on your 180th day out! Reservations can be made online or by calling 407.WDW.DINE [939.3463].

    I sure hope you and your daughters get to enjoy a meal in Beast's castle during your Disney Time, Kim! Please let us know if we can help with any other questions you think of!

    Have a Pixie Dusted vacation!
