    We are wanting to try out the new Be Our Guest restaurant. What is the best way to get reservations. Online or by phone? What time do reservations begin so that I can get online or on the phone ASAP! :)


    I just got a reservation online for Be Our Guest, so really any way should work. I did go online a full 180 days out, but there were several times available, and it was for the first day of my vacation.

    I would suggest that you try online first. If you have any problems, or don't have luck, call the dining line right away (407-WDW-DINE) and ask.

    If there are no openings, there are a few other steps you can take. First, try for reservations on other nights during your trip. Next, keep calling every week up to your trip. Cancellations do happen. Finally, when you are on your trip do try to walk up for a table. Go early, and don't assume you will succeed, but it can work out. Be there a good 15 minutes before their opening time to increase your chances. GOOD LUCK!

    Have a magical (and delicious) vacation!
