    Hello! I’m staying off site and booked a reservation at Be Our Guest for 9:40 pm. The park closes at 9 pm - except for the extra magic hours. Is this going to be a problem for us leaving the park and getting to our car after supper?

    Hey, hey Mieke and welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel. "Be our guest, be our guest! Put our service to the test" and Be Our Guest Restaurant in New Fantasyland is tres bien with fantastic artwork, suits of armour (which may or may not speak), an eerie West Wing, the nostalgic Castle Gallery, and the enchanted Grand Ballroom with snow falling beyond the floor to ceiling back windows. We truly enjoy the Beast's hospitality.

    Dining reservations during evening Extra Magic Hours require entrance into the theme park with a valid theme park ticket and the Guest must be staying at a qualified Resort hotel. According to the Cast Members I spoke with and my previous experience with this exact situation, you would need to change your dining reservation because you are staying off-site even if you are already in Magic Kingdom Park. Disney does provide some partner hotel Guests with Extra Magic Hours access. I suggest you contact Disney Dining at 407-WDW-DINE (939-3463), discuss your situation, and see what magic they can conjure to help you.

    Disney Dad Tip: Dining reservations may be made 180 days in advance. If you are unable to get the reservation for your restaurant choice, keep checking the restaurant's webpage as cancellations happen all the time even the day before as people adjust their vacation plans.

    Mieke, enjoy making many delicious and Magical Memories.
