    I was unable to get a reservation at Be Our Guest restaurant and was wondering if I can still eat a quick service lunch without a reservation?

    Hi Amanda!

    Be Our Guest Restaurant is one of my favorite dining experiences at Walt Disney World Resort! There is nothing like having a meal in the Beast's Castle. Each of the rooms in the restaurant is perfectly themed and it truly feels like you have entered the movie!

    Unfortunately, Be Our Guest Restaurant's popularity can make it very difficult to obtain reservations. If you are unable to get reservations, you are welcome to check with the restaurant to see if they can accommodate walk-up Guests. You never know when you will find a little bit of pixie dust and get a spot. However, I have a few tips for you to help you snag a reservation:
    1. Keep checking! In my experience, reservations often become available as your trip approaches. In fact, I have gotten reservations to Be Our Guest Restaurant multiple times less than a week in advance of our meal. I have found that 24-48 hours in advance, reservations often become available as Guests are finalizing their daily itineraries for the next few days of their trip. So don't give up and keep checking for an opening!
    2. Consider enjoying Be Our Guest Restaurant for breakfast. We love breakfast at Be Our Guest Restaurant, particularly if we can eat there before the theme park opens. Plus, I can never turn down pastries and you will get a basket of pastries for the table at breakfast!
    3. Be flexible with your dining time. I recommend that you search for reservations for the entire lunch service, rather than around specific times. When you are looking for your reservations, simply scroll to the top of the time selection list and select 'Lunch' to give you all reservation openings during lunch, rather than displaying openings only around your selected time window.
    Let us know if you have additional questions as you continue planning! T-T-F-N, ta ta for now!
