    We are visiting magic kingdom for one day in a couple of weeks - I would love to go to 'be our guest' but there don't seem to be any spaces online - can you wait in line to get in on the day? Where is best to eat in the park?

    Welcome Fiona! Thanks for visiting us at the Disney Parks Moms Panel.
    Be Our Guest Restaurant is an amazing place! Located at Magic Kingdom Park, this magical dining place will take you directly inside the movie Beauty and the Beast. 
    You can always show up to the restaurant without a reservation, but there is no guarantee you will be able to be seated. Sometimes walk-in’s are accepted because cancelations can happen at the last minute. However, it is not a usual situation once this is a very popular restaurant. 
    I suggest you check back for availability a couple days before your visit. Cancelations tend to happen on the week prior of a desired date. Last year I called dining reservations one day prior to my visit and I was lucky, I got the reservation I wanted. 
    If you are considering other dining alternatives at Magic Kingdom Park, I suggest The Crystal Palace for a Character Dining Experience, or Liberty Tree Tavern. Both are great restaurants and offer delicious food.
    Hope this helps your planning. Let us know if you have additional questions.
    Have a magical day!

I am totally a Disney maniac! Since childhood, I have been a big fan of all things Disney, especially the theme parks. I have never visited any other place that gives me the same feeling that I get at the Walt Disney World Resort. You can become a child again there! With so much to explore, I would love to help you plan your next Walt Disney World vacation and discover all the fantasy and magic this special place has to offer. Learn More About Gina
