    Hello, We have reservations at Be our guest 2-21. It says we can preorder our meal on 1-21. What is the advantage of preordering? If I preorder, and my 6 year old changes her mind can we change her order. Thanks

    Hello Kimberly! Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel.

    Dining in Beast's Castle at Be Our Guest Restaurant is a remarkable experience that truly immerses you in Disney Magic. It is one of my family's favorite experiences at Walt Disney World Resort and we try to book reservations at least once a trip. Everything, from the exquisite attention to detail to the mouth-watering offerings to the ordering process, is a part of this magical experience.

    If you have never been to Be Our Guest Restaurant, know that it is extremely popular and consistently crowded. Pre-ordering your meal (for Quick-Service lunch or breakfast) allows families to forgo waiting too long after your reservation is called, crossing through the main gates and entering this fairy tale come to life. Once inside Beast's Castle, guests who have pre-ordered are directed to a small queue to pay for their meal (or redeem their 2017 Disney Dining Plan credits) and ushered into the Ballroom to begin their experience. Guests who have not pre-ordered enter the (in my experience) much longer ordering queue and make their selections at a terminal, print off their order and pay for their meal.

    Pre-ordering your meal at Be Our Guest Restaurant is akin to obtaining a Fastpass+ for your favorite attraction; the experience is similar for both queues, but less waiting for those who plan in advance.

    When I last visited Be Our Guest Restaurant, my daughter decided she wanted the Souvenir Castle Goblet instead of her ordered drink. When I got to the Cast Member at the pre-order queue, she simply made the change at that point with no issue. Even with a last-minute change, it is still preferable to pre-order.

    Try the Grey Stuff on the Master's Cupcake, it really is delicious!

    Bon Appétit!
