    What is the secret to getting in to Be Our Guest at dinnertime? We have tried and it's impossible to get a reservation. Thanks !

    Ma chère Mademoiselle Theresa,

    It is with deepest pride and greatest pleasure that I welcome you, to the Disney Parks Moms Panel!

    Be Our Guest Restaurant is such an enchanting place. Needless to say, the food is delicious, and if you don't believe me, there are many dishes than can vouch for me. Each of the dining rooms is so unique you definitely need to spend some time visiting each one. And at dinner time, Beast receives Guests for a photo op.

    It is one of the most popular restaurants among Guests, and yes, reservations are very hard to get. You can book them 180 days in advance, but if you stay at a Disney Resort hotel, you have the advantage of booking all reservations for your entire stay, 180 days before your Check-In. This gives you a leg up over Guests staying off-site, specially towards the end of your vacation.

    A few years ago, we planned on celebrating Christmas eve here. Reservations were booked as soon as they became available. And then in late October, a distant relative decided to join us for her first Disney vacation. Y literally checked the Walt Disney World Restaurants and Reservations page every day during the month of November. Finally, a few weeks before our trip, I found a reservation for all of us. Hence, my tip: keep checking! Many Guests change their plans even at the last minute. Today is even easier, with the My Disney Experience mobile app.

    One last tip: why not enjoy a delicious breakfast, or lunch? The restaurant is open as a Quick-Service venue and also accepts reservations. Happy planning!
