    Do we need a reservation at the Be Our Guest Restaurant if we just want to use a snack off our dining plan for some onion soup ?

    Hi, there!

     Julianne, your Walt Disney World Resort vacation is just around the corner. How very exciting!

     My family loves Be Our Guest Restaurant. A meal there is an absolute must-do during our visits to Magic Kingdom Park. While you don't need a lunch reservation to enjoy their famous French Onion Soup, you may face a considerable wait time without one, even though you only want to redeem a snack entitlement. I know reservations are not easy to come by! My best advice is to keep checking for availability, both online and on the My Disney Experience mobile app. Sometimes reservations become available the closer you are to your arrival date. In fact, on our most recent visit I searched availability for Be Our Guest Restaurant on the My Disney Experience mobile app while we were on a bus en route to Magic Kingdom Park, and I was able to find a reservation for that very day! If you aren't able to make a reservation, I recommend arriving to the check-in station outside the restaurant promptly when the lunch period begins at 11:00 AM. Arriving early should improve your chances of being seated! The French Onion Soup IS delicious, but be sure to leave room for The Master's Cupcake, a chocolate sponge cake topped with Lumiere's special "Grey Stuff." YUM. It's also an eligible snack item!

     Did you know that Guests may now place mobile food and beverage orders on the My Disney Experience mobile app? This convenient feature saves lots of valuable time in the theme parks!

     Thanks for stopping by, Julianne. Please visit us again soon with any new questions you may have about your upcoming Walt Disney World Resort vacation!
