    Hi, We are going to Disney December 16, we haven't received an email to make a reservation to Be Our Guest yet. Do you usually receive one by now? How would I go about getting one if I don't receive an email. Thanks

    Hi Lisa,

    Thanks for stopping by the Disney Parks Moms Panel and congratulations on your upcoming vacation!  I'm so happy answer your question and help with your vacation planning!

    Be Our Guest Restaurant is one of my favorite places to dine - and I know I'm not alone when I say that.  The stunning surroundings and delicious dishes have easily made it one of the most popular restaurants in all of Walt Disney World.  Advanced dining reservations for dinner fill up quickly, but it never hurts to check online or call (407) WDW-DINE (939-3463) for openings, even if your trip dates are just around the corner.  If you will be staying at a Disney Resort hotel, there's also another great option for lunch.  Testing for a lunch FastPass+ option is underway, and even better, no special email invitation is required.  To check for availability for your vacation dates, just visit and follow the instructions for signing in and linking your reservation number.  If you don't have any luck finding an opening at first, definitely keep checking back as your dates get closer.  For my own vacation later this month, I was able to get a spot at the lunch table for my family about 4 weeks before my check-in date.

    I'm hoping some pixie dust finds its way to you, Lisa, and that you're dining with Beast when you visit next month!  Please write back if you have any other questions as you make your plans.
