    Can I pay ahead online before going to eat at be our guest

    Hi Candy!

    Welcome to planDisney! Thank you for bringing this great dining question to us!

    Be Our Guest Restaurant is one of my family's favorite dining experiences at the Walt Disney World Resort because we absolutely adore the decor in Beast's Castle. Currently, meals are only available for lunch and dinner. At this time, you cannot pre-pay for your meal but you can choose to charge the meal to your resort hotel account and pay with the credit card on file.

    Having done advanced dining reservations with dining experiences that are pre-pay and those that just require a credit card guarantee hold, I prefer the credit card guarantee hold. When we have pre-paid and had to cancel, it has sometimes taken a week or more to get a refund. And, I must pay close attention to any potential cancellation penalties.

    So, if you have not done so already, make your advanced dining reservation for Be Our Guest Restaurant. Then make your payment arrangements at the restaurant. Know also that there are select restaurants where you can do Mobile Food & Beverage Ordering using the My Disney Experience Mobile app. So, if you need to grab a quick bite to eat, consider dining locations that have a mobile ordering option.

    As you make plans to visit, remember to download the My Disney Experience Mobile App to be sure you have access to its enhanced features. Review the dining updates as well and remember to make theme park reservations through the Disney Park Pass system. Perhaps most important, when dining at Be Our Guest Restaurant, keep an eye out for the Beast. Our girls have smiled when he does what I like to call his celebrity walk through The Grand Ballroom!

    Candy, we are so excited to welcome you back to a world of magic!

    Magic and memories.
