    How can I be sure my family gets to dine for lunch at BE OUR GUEST restaurant? If we arrive there when the park opens will they give us a reservation of some sort? Dinner is sold out and the most important thing to my daughter is to eat at the Castle.

    Hi Leslie,
    I think your question is referring to two of the Magic Kingdom's most popular restaurants, Be Our Guest and Cinderella's Royal Table. They're two great choices and they're two of the hottest Advanced Dining Reservations at the Walt Disney World Resort!

    Cinderella's Royal Table, located inside Cinderella's Castle in the Magic Kingdom, is currently undergoing refurbishment until Spring 2015. It's a fantastic dining experience where your daughter will get to meet many of the Disney Princesses while enjoying a spectacular view of Fantasyland! The official opening date has not been announced as of yet; I would suggest trying to make Advanced Dining Reservations as soon as possible in an effort to secure a table during your visit. If there is no availability, keep trying, as people do cancel their reservations. If Cinderella's Royal Table has not reopened when you visit, don't despair! Cinderella's Dining at Citricos, located inside The Grand Floridian Resort and Spa, has opened to ensure that dining with princesses is still an option during the refurbishment. Breakfast and Brunch are being served at this location.

    Located in the New Fantasyland, Be Our Guest is a unique dining experience in that it's a Quick Service location during lunch and a Table Service location at dinner. Again, I would suggest attempting to make dinner reservations for dinner at Be Our Guest as soon as possible. Lunch is available on a first-come, first-served basis.

    Wishing you and your family a terrific vacation at the Walt Disney World Resort!
