    We have a reservation for three at Be Our Guest. Can a fourth person dine with us or will they turn them away?

    Hi, Eric! Thank you for stopping by with your question today. Be Our Guest Restaurant is one of my daughter's favorite dining locations at Walt Disney World Resort. If she could eat "The Grey Stuff" and roar at The Beast every day of our vacation, she would be one happy little princess!

    Adding guests to your dining party can be a tricky endeavor. The Cast Members do have to abide by capacity rules at the restaurant, but it never hurts to ask upon your arrival if they have room for one extra guest to relax and pull up a chair. They may tell you to "be our guest!" In my experience, one extra guest has been easily accommodated, especially when going from an odd number to an even number of guests. Usually, I see parties of three sat at a table meant for four guests. In this case, I think an extra guest, making it a party of four, could be allowed. You can also check with Disney Dining occasionally to see if there have been any cancellations, which would allow your party of three to be changed to a party of four. I always see a flurry of Advance Dining Reservation availability in the final week before our trips. I have gotten some really great seats at hot dining locations over the years this way!

    Thanks again for bringing your question to us. Please let us know if you need help again as you continue to plan your trip!
