    I have been unable to make lunch reservation for BOG. Do they take walk in's for this restaurant? If so, what time do you suggest we get there in order to get seating? Thanks

    Hi Samuel,

    Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel, and thank you for your question. Be Our Guest Restaurant is one of the most popular restaurants in Walt Disney World because dining in the Beast’s castle is such a magical experience. 

    I would not count on walk-up seating at Be Our Guest Restaurant. While waiting for my reservations over the years I have witnessed many Guests attempting to walk-up, and they have almost all been turned away. While the ease of walk-up seating changes based on crowd levels and other factors, and it never hurts to try, I have another suggestion for you.

    I am currently in Walt Disney World at the busiest I have ever seen it, with Spring Break and Easter crowds converging, and I have found Be Our Guest Restaurant reservations in the My Disney Experience app at various times throughout the week. The key is to keep looking – check the app at different times throughout the day as you get closer to your arrival date. You usually start to see more restaurant availability pop up about 48 hours before your desired date, because Guests must drop unwanted reservations 24 hours in advance in order to avoid being charged. I can’t promise you’ll find reservations, especially because this restaurant is so popular, but persistence might pay off. Another tip is that if you have a larger party, try splitting your party into smaller groups and search for smaller party sizes. You can join up and sit together once inside.

    I’ve got my fingers crossed for you that you’ll find that reservation and be able to relax and pull up a chair as the dining room proudly presents…your lunch!

    Wishing you a magical vacation,
