    Hello! I have a lunch reservation at Be Our Guest restaurant in mid-June that I no longer need. I have a friend who would like to use the reservation for her party. We are not traveling together, though. Can I transfer my reservation to her party?

    Hi Monica,

    Let the countdown begin. Your magical vacation starts in 4... 3... 2... It's almost here!

    Such a nice gesture of you, trying to help your friend with a reservation to the coveted Be Our Guest Restaurant. Open for breakfast and lunch as Quick-Service restaurant, and for dinner as a Table-Service offering, it lets you step right inside Beast's castle and enjoy some delicious eats. It is extremely popular and reservations for all three services are highly recommended.

    Once a reservation is made, it is tied to the Guest who made it, and it's not possible to transfer it to other guests. A suggestion is for you and your friend to both coordinate a convenient time, and then for you to release it, while your friend attempts to grab it. I've done this a couple of times in the past with success, however, there's been times that it didn't work as another Guest happened to be checking for an opening. For your friend, all hope is not lost. You should know that many guests don't finalize their plans until the last minute, so some reservations may become available 24 to 48 hours in advance, since Guests would cancel what they no longer need in order to avoid a no-show fee.

    Reservations can be made up to 180 days in advance either at the Walt Disney World restaurants and reservations page, or better yet, try the My Disney Experience mobile app. It's really easy to use.

    Hoping for you and your friend a magical vacation. See you real soon!
