    We will be going to WDW Aug 8-14,I have been making dinner reservations and have been trying to make one for Be Our Guest for dinner.Is it best to call?

    Hi, Cynthia!

    I am so glad to hear you are planning ahead with your Dining Reservations!  Many of the popular locations fill up quickly, so getting your restaurants secured in advance is fantastic.

    Whether you call or book online, you have the same chance of getting a reservation. Personally, I prefer to book online so I can see what my options are with times as a few different times are usually displayed based on availability. 

    If you are finding that Be Our Guest is already booked, keep checking back as there may be cancellations.   Check first thing in the morning every few days.  You will also want to check as you get closer to your vacation as guests plans change and reservations will be moved around.   If you arrive at your vacation and still do not have the magical reservation you are looking for, speak with your resort concierge to see if they can find anything.

    Finally, your last resort, try a walk-up!  Head to the podium before the dinner seating and ask for any last minute openings.  Or, stop by after the dinner rush and see if they can squeeze in one last family for the night.  There are no guarantees here, but give it a shot!

    Keep in mind that lunch is Quick Service with no reservations, so you can always enjoy this beautiful restaurant mid-day with no worries!   I do hope you get to see this gorgeous location.  Beast has quite a lovely castle, and you simply MUST see it!  Good luck!

Meet the Panelist: Cathy, Ohio

Hi, I'm Cathy from Cleveland. I love to travel, especially in the winter to escape the snow and cold of Ohio! My husband and 2 kids share my enthusiasm for travel, so we enjoy our adventures together whether it is hiking at a National Park, sailing on a Disney Cruise Ship, or going to Walt Disney World which is our home away from home. My husband proposed to me in front of Cinderella Castle and we have not stopped visiting ever since! It's a blast helping guests here at planDisney!
