    I will be going to WDW for Spring Break. I've been trying every night for a few weeks to get a reservation at "Be our guest" online. If we go for lunch, will there be a very long line? What is the best time to go in order to make sure we can e

    Hi, Sarah! Thanks for visiting us again here on the Disney Parks Moms Panel.

    I'm sorry to hear that you've been having a difficult time trying to secure a dinner reservation at Be Our Guest restaurant in Magic Kingdom. Advance Dining Reservations can be made up to 180 days prior to your arrival, so I'm not surprised that there are no openings during Spring Break. Since the restaurant inside the Beast's Castle first started accepting reservations back in mid-November 2012, Be Our Guest has actually become the hardest reservation to get in all of Walt Disney World! 

    I have had the pleasure of dining at Be Our Guest for both lunch (twice) and dinner. I can tell you that lunch is a great experience - you will really enjoy your meal and the amazing atmosphere in the castle. Be sure to pay attention as you pass through the Armory on the way to placing your order at the kiosk screens - the suits of armor are very entertaining! A nice bonus is that all three dining rooms are available at lunchtime: the Ballroom, the Rose Room (my personal favorite!) and the West Wing. Lunch is served from 10:30 AM to 2:30 PM. I would suggest queuing up toward the beginning or the tail end of the lunch window for the shortest wait in line. You will see guests lining up along the bridge leading to the entrance to the Beast's Castle. The line usually extends the full length of the bridge and beyond, but not to worry - the line moves quickly! Both times I've had lunch at Be Our Guest, I did not have to wait more than 20 minutes in line. The only bad part is that there is no shade, so you will be stuck waiting in the full sun.

    Wishing you a magical Spring Break at Disney World, Sara! Don't hesitate to send any other questions my way as you plan your trip!
