    Thank you for your response. My daughter really wants to see the Be Our Guest restaurant. I wanted to have dinner there one night and order a birthday cake for her. Is there a way to call and get on a waiting list if online dining is booked?

    Hi Tabitha.

    It's so nice to hear from you again.
    The new Be Our Guest Restaurant in Fantasyland is really quite beautiful to see. Due to the restaurant's popularity, being new, it does tend to fill quickly for Advance Dining Reservations. Unfortunately, there is no 'Wait List' per se available for this or other Disney Dining locations. Your best chance to secure a dinner spot would be to arrive at 4:00pm on the day prior to your desired reservation date, and again on the day of, to check-in at the Be Our Guest Hostess stand at the end of the bridge and check for last minute cancellation availability.

    As an alternate means of ensuring that you do get to enjoy dining in this beautiful, new space, consider planning to dine for lunch. Arrive at 11:00am to wait in the stand-by queue. Personally, I find lunch to be an equally enjoyable experience.

    As far as cakes go, personalized cakes need to be ordered a minimum of 48 hours in advance to be delivered to an on-site dining location. At Be Our Guest, should you be lucky enough to secure a last-minute cancellation at dinner time, you'll be able to request a Celebration Cake in chocolate or vanilla, non-personalized, to be delivered to your table. Simply request this option at check-in. These cakes are $21, serve 4-6 guests and will be added to your dinner bill.

    If you'd prefer to secure a Birthday Meal and customized cake in advance, consider reserving an alternate dinner location and secure your custom cake order and delivery to that location. Speak to a Cast Member at the Cake Ordering Hotline by calling (407) 827-2253. 

    If you'd like some alternate dinner suggestions, please don't hesitate to write back. It would be my pleasure to assist you Tabitha.

    Wishing you a simply Magical birthday celebration at Walt Disney World!
