    Hi, we are taking our first trip to Walt Disney World this month. We made reservations for breakfast at BOG so we could “beat the crowds” to Seven Dwarfs Mine Train but the crowd level should be really low so is this reservation worth it?

    Hello Valerie!

    Thank you for visiting the Disney Parks Moms Panel! Seven Dwarfs Mine Train is in my top 3 Walt Disney World Resort attractions. There's just something about those dwarfs singing and a smooth coaster that makes me happy.

    Is breakfast at Be Our Guest Restaurant worth it to beat the crowds? That's a good question. Anytime I get a chance to eat in Beast's castle, I am giddy. I feel like royalty when I eat in the main ballroom. Belle is one of my favorite Disney princesses, so I feel like I'm a part of her story and that singing plates and dishes will come out any moment.

    Yes, you'll get a head start on the crowds, which is always a plus. And you're right, traditionally January is not as crowded as other months, but there will still be waits for Seven Dwarfs Mine Train. It's a very popular ride. If you're solely going to eat at Be Our Guest just to ride Mine Train ahead of the pack, I would skip it. Just make sure you arrive at Magic Kingdom park before park opening.

    However, I'd still recommend a meal at Be Our Guest. My favorite is lunch, because I can't resist the Master's Cupcake. It has the grey stuff, and you know it's delicious. 

    If you have any other questions, please come back and see us real soon. Have a magical vacation!
