    Hi Kirsten, We are huge Disney lovers and can't wait to visit the new Fantasyland. Just wondering what new dining options are available in the new area? Are they quick service restaurants or table service restaurants? Thanks

    Hi Kim!

    There are a few great, new options for dining in the New Fantasyland area of Magic Kingdom.

    For starters, of course, there's the fabulous, new Be Our Guest Restaurant. This dining location offers a bit of a twist compared to other restaurants in Magic Kingdom. At lunch time, Be Our Guest offers up Quick Service Dining, no reservations required! It's fun and interactive too ... you arrive and place your order on a computer kiosk yourself, then go and choose your seating. Your meal will be magically delivered to you, after you're seated, on dinnerware (not paper) for your enjoyment. It's a fabulous way to enjoy the surroundings of this beautiful restaurant without the necessity of a reservation.

    At dinner time, Be Our Guest is a full service, licensed, Table Service Dining location where reservations are most definitely required. This is one spot that you'll want to make sure to reserve 180 days out for sure!

    In addition to the star, dining attraction, there is also Gaston's Tavern. Here, you can enjoy quick service meals, snacks and treats such as the 'shank du jour,' Cinnamon Rolls and Chocolate Croissants, Hummus and Chips, and LeFou's Brew (frozen apple juice slush with a twist!).

    Be sure to pop into Big Top Souvenirs for some Big Top Treats! So many delicious creations await you in the center section of this whimsical shop! 

    Last but not least, is the fun Maurice's Amazing Popping Machine, a snack cart located near Bonjour Gifts. It's a great spot to grab an ice cream novelty, a quick beverage, or some of the tastiest popcorn around!

    Thanks for visiting me with your question Kim! I hope to hear from you again soon!

    Wishing you a Magical time as you plan your family's next Walt Disney World vacation!
    Happy New Year!
