    I've heard that the Grey Stuff at BOG is a must try. We can't get reservations so I was wondering, is it possible to go and just purchase one without reservations and get it to go? Thanks!

    Hello Lisa!  Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel.

    You heard correctly: the grey stuff at Be Our Guest Restaurant is delicious and a definite "must try". On my family's first visit to the Beast's Enchanted Castle, it was the first dessert I ever tried and one I have tried on countless visits.

    Advanced Dining Reservations are quite difficult for Be Our Guest Restaurant. Unfortunately, the grey stuff is only available to Guests dining in the restaurant and it is not available as a "grab and go" item any in Walt Disney World Resort other than Be Our Guest Restaurant.

    I usually arrange a visit to Be Our Guest Restaurant at least once per vacation. Even if I don't snag Advanced Dining Reservations at the 180-day window, I find that by constantly checking on the Be Our Guest Restaurant site page and keeping my schedule flexible for any open Advanced Dining Reservations up to and including the week of my planned visit, I can usually sneak in on a late cancellation.

    If you are able to obtain Advanced Dining Reservations, you are welcome to order only the grey stuff for your meal. I have often booked Advanced Dining Reservations to take advantage of a single course (usually dessert) at a Walt Disney World Resort Dining location.

    If not, stick with a Dole Whip at Sunshine Tree Terrace. I prefer it to the grey stuff(although you should try it at least once) and never requires Advanced Dining Reservations.

    Good Luck getting Advanced Dining Reservations(You can do it)!
