    Does Be Our Quest Restaurant have Character Dining?

    Hi Christina,

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! I am happy to hear that you are making dining plans for a visit to the Walt Disney World Resort!

    Be Our Guest Restaurant is one of my family's favorite dining experiences. We have dined here for breakfast, lunch and dinner. At dinner, the Beast appears and does what I like to call a celebrity walk through the restaurant. He then greets guests after dinner. When we have dined here, the cast members who served us explained that we could stop by to greet the Beast after dinner on our way out of the restaurant. These pictures are so much fun. On one visit, the cast member told our girls that the Beast could not sign autographs because he was still learning how to write.

    Although we love the enhanced dinner experience at Be Our Guest Restaurant, we also always do a pre-park opening dining reservation at 8:00 a.m. on a day when Magic Kingdom does not open until 9:00 a.m. We take advantage of the order-ahead option for breakfast to expedite our time at the restaurant in the morning so that we can finish breakfast by 8:45 a.m. and go jump in the stand-by line for Seven Dwarfs Mine Train.

    Christina, if you have not already done so and it is less than 180 days prior to your trip, make advanced dining reservations. Be Our Guest Restaurant is incredibly popular as are several other restaurants and gets booked quickly. Some of our favorite character meals are 1900 Park Fare, Chef Mickey's, Cinderella's Royal Table, and Tusker House Restaurant.

    Happy Planning!

    Magic, memories and Minnie Mouse hugs,
