    We are hoping to lunch at 'Be our Guest' while at the Magic Kindom in October. I understand that you can make reservations in advance but was wondering as it is a quick service lunch can you just turn up on the day and hope to get a table?

    Hi Gethin!

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel. Be Our Guest Restaurant is one of my favorite dining experiences at Magic Kingdom because I love the opportunity to enjoy a tasty meal in one of the rooms of the Beast's castle! While lunch at Be Our Guest Restaurant is quick service restaurant, it accepts advanced dining reservations. Due to the extreme popularity of the restaurant, the restaurant is generally booked for lunch and unable to accommodate walk-up Guests. However, there are occasional openings, so it never hurts to ask!

    If you are interested in enjoying lunch at Be Our Guest Restaurant, I recommend that you continue to look for available reservations. I have found in the past that reservations often open up as the date gets closer. I have found the best time to look for last-minute reservations to popular restaurants, including Be Our Guest Restaurant, is the day before as Guests are cancelling reservations they will not be using as they solidify their next day's itinerary. I like to use the My Disney Experience Mobile App to book available openings during my trip. I have successfully found several reservations to Be Our Guest Restaurant this way so my family can enjoy this amazing dining experience during our vacation!

    Sending you lots of dining pixie dust in hopes you can find the perfect reservation. T-T-F-N, ta ta for now!
