    We are hoping to get ADR for dinner at Be Our Guest in Oct 2013. However, all of the dinner reviews state that you cannot dine in the Rose Hall for dinner. Can you still go in there to see the giant music box? Or is it completely closed off at dinner?

    Hi Amber,

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel!

    Be Our Guest restaurant inside the Beast's Castle in the New Fantasyland is a wonderfully unique dining experience! When my family enjoyed dinner at Be Our Guest last December, the Rose Gallery was not open to guests. It is my understanding that this room may be available at dinner during especially busy times (read: summer and holiday season).

    Be sure to call 407-WDW-DINE (407-939-3463) or go online to make an Advance Dining Reservation for Be Our Guest at exactly 180 days prior to your arrival in October. This will give you the best chance of securing a reservation for your preferred date and time. 

    If you have your heart set on dining in the Rose Gallery, I highly recommend visiting Be Our Guest for an upscale quick-service lunch. I actually enjoyed my lunch experience in the Beast's Castle just as much as I did dinner! At lunch, guests have their choice of the three dining rooms (Ballroom, West Wing or Rose Gallery). Personally, my favorite room is the Rose Gallery - it is bright, elegant and far quieter than the other two rooms. And I just love the larger-than-life revolving music box featuring Belle and the Beast dancing! The cavernous Ballroom, though stunning, can get quite loud (not surprisingly, with seating for 550 guests!) and, while I do appreciate the forbidding atmosphere and incredible theming in the West Wing, your dining experience will include periodic claps of thunder and flashes of lightning. 

    Wishing you a magical vacation, Amber! Please write me back with any other questions as you plan your trip.
