    May I please know the cancellation policy for Be Our Guest? I was able to reserve spots for dinner and lunch on my birthday, but I have to discuss with the rest of my party which we are doing. I understand there is a penalty, and I'd like to avoid it.

    Hello Maria! I love answering Disney Dining questions, especially when they are about my favorite Disney Dining location…Be Our Guest Restaurant!

    Be Our Guest Restaurant requires a credit card number to hold your reservation. You may cancel your reservation up to two hours prior to your reservation time without a penalty or fee being charged. If you don’t cancel prior to two hours, you could be charged a per-person fee of $10 for missing your reservation. Please note that prices are subject to change without notice.

    I think you are fine to hold onto your two reservations until you’re able to speak with your family regarding their preference for lunch or dinner. The menu at Be Our Guest Restaurant is the same for both lunch and dinner. I have found that the meal at lunchtime can be a bit “heavy” for the rest of the day, so we prefer to have dinner (or a very late lunch) at the restaurant. Either way, you are going to get one of the most amazing dining experiences at the Walt Disney World Resort!

    Maria, be sure to release your reservation after you discuss things with your family! That way another wonderful family will have the chance to enjoy Be Our Guest Restaurant! I hope you have an amazing birthday at the Walt Disney World Resort! You’ve picked such a great restaurant to celebrate your special day!

    Happy Planning!
