    Hi! We are traveling to WDW Mar 2-9 and would love to visit Beast's Castle, however there aren't any dinner times available. Are guests able to walk through the castle without dining reservations?

    Hi Sarah!

    Thanks for submitting your question to the Moms Panel! I have good news and bad news...Unfortunately, guests are not permitted to walk around the Be Our Guest Restaurant (which is located inside Beast's Castle) unless they have dining reservations. The Be Our Guest Restaurant is divided in to three dining rooms and you can imagine how unpleasant it would be to have the heavy traffic of guests walking through while you are enjoying your dinner! That would totally ruin your dining experience! 

    Now for the good news.. you can have lunch there, no reservations required or allowed! In my opinion, this quick service is option is way cooler! First, you want to start making the line at the front entrance of the Beast's Castle as early as 10:00 a.m.; lunch is offered from 10:30 a.m. - 3:30 p.m. Then once inside, you will walk past the suits of armor (be sure to listen closely..they start to whisper). Next you will proceed in to the Beast's study where you will be given "rose" and you will use a touch screen kiosk to order your meal. I had the steak sandwich and tried the pork dish and they were delicious.  In my opinion, its the best quick service food option in all of Magic Kingdom! After you have finalized your order, you can proceed to the dining room. Remember I mentioned that there were three areas? Well there is the grand 2-story ballroom, Belle's book-filled Library or the forbidden West Wing! Only during lunch, do you have the liberty to chose which dining room you want to experience! I LOVED the West Wing!  The food is then brought to you by waiters. Also, it is nice that the lunch is served on glassware instead of paper plates... very classy! You will not be disappointed!

    Hope you enjoy your upcoming visit!
