    We have reservations for Be Our Guest for us and our kids at 9:55 PM on 12/27. I’m wondering if there is a required full dinner or if we could just do dessert? I appreciate your help!

    Hi, Tim!  Thanks for being OUR guest at the Disney Parks Moms Panel.  Now we invite you to relax, let us pull up a chair, as the dining room proudly presents... your dinner.

    Be Our Guest Restaurant is one of my favorite places to dine at the Walt Disney World Resort.  This restaurant is almost like an attraction itself!  When I set foot inside the Grand Ballroom, I truly feel as if I have been magically transported inside the movie, Beauty and the Beast.  Dinner at Be Our Guest Restaurant consists of a prix fixe, three-course menu featuring French-inspired dishes.  Unfortunately, there are no a la carte options for ordering only dessert.

    My children like to eat dinner on the earlier side, so I can certainly understand why you would be hesitant to wait until 9:55 p.m. to enjoy dinner with your family.  However, there is certainly no shortage of delicious snacks at the Walt Disney World Resort, so perhaps your family could enjoy some Mickey pretzels earlier in the evening to hold everyone over until your dinner reservation.  Another option would be to try to modify your dinner reservation.  Guests change their plans all the time, so you never know when an earlier reservation might become available.  Keep checking your My Disney Experience mobile app to see if an earlier time opens up.

    If your family only wishes to sample the desserts at Be Our Guest Restaurant, I would recommend that you try to change your dinner reservation to a breakfast or lunch reservation.  Breakfast and lunch at Be Our Guest Restaurant are considered Quick-Service meals (but reservations are still recommended), and there is no set prix fixe menu.  Did you know that The Master's Cupcake is on the breakfast menu at Be Our Guest Restaurant?  This chocolate cupcake is topped with the Grey Stuff.  It's delicious!  Don't believe me? Ask the dishes.  You're on vacation, so it's totally appropriate to order a cupcake for breakfast. 

    No matter what you order at Be Our Guest Restaurant, I think you'll find that a meal here is never second best.  So go on unfold your menu, take a glance and then you'll be our guest.  Oui, our guest.  Be our guest!
