    Eating at "Be Our Guest" takes 2 table service meals per person, does that mean we would have to buy the Deluxe plan.. Or can we use 1 of our table service meals from another day, and just use a quick service meal on the day we took from?

    Hi Brittney,

    Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! I am doing a happy dance for you, so glad that you are considering dining at Be Our Guest restaurant. It is one of our favorite restaurants! 

    On the 2017 and 2018 Disney Dining Plans, Be Our Guest restaurant requires one meal credit. To double-check the number of meal credits required for a specific restaurant, I go the website for the restaurant and click on the link that says "Some Dining Plans Accepted." We have dined at Be Our Guest for breakfast, lunch and dinner and it has always been one meal credit, quick-service for breakfast or lunch and table-service for dinner. At Be Our Guest, we can order ahead for breakfast or lunch. Ordering ahead will save you time at the restaurant. On one visit, our wait was over 30 minutes for lunch even though we had a dining reservation.

    Brittney, we love using a Disney Dining Plan because of the flexibility. When you arrive, all of your meal and snack credits will be loaded onto your account. You can use them in whatever order you choose. We always do dinner on the day we arrive and breakfast on the day we depart and the rest of our meals in between. Since I do not want to run out of meal credits before we depart, I always make a chart of all of our dining reservations. The chart helps me be sure I have enough meal credits to cover the dining reservations we have. We prefer the Disney Deluxe Dining Plan because it provides more table service meal credits but you would not have to use it to dine at Be Our Guest!

    Magic, memories and Minnie Mouse hugs,
