    Why can I not book Be Our Guest for breakfast?

    Hi Christina! I'm glad you found your way over to us at planDisney. We love to help each Guest have the best vacation ever.

    You've come to the right place if you want to talk advanced dining reservations! I have a trip coming up this August and I am most excited about all the places I'm going to eat. And let me tell you, you are going to just love Be Our Guest Restaurant in Magic Kingdom Park. The food is delicious, the atmosphere is impeccable, and you get to wave to the Beast as he roams around his castle. If you love your experience at this restaurant, I would also recommend Cinderella's Royal Table in Magic Kingdom Park and Akershus Royal Banquet Hall in EPCOT. They also have a very regal setting, great food, and you get to meet and greet a bunch of princesses.  What's not to love?

    Advanced dining reservations open up 60 days before the date on which you'd like to dine. So, if you are visiting in September of 2024, your dining reservations will open up the July before. They become available at 6 a.m. EST, but sometimes they go live a bit before or a bit after. I always recommend being ready by 5:45 a.m. EST.

    If you are staying at a Disney Resorts Collection Hotel, you will be able to book advanced dining reservations for your entire trip (up to 10 days) starting 60 days before your arrival date. This means that you will have a distinct advantage over Guests who are not staying at these hotels. As such, I would recommend you try to book your Be Our Guest Restaurant reservation later on in your trip as fewer Guests will have had access to those dates and this is a very popular restaurant!

    Since you are visiting later in 2024, keep an eye on the Disney Parks Blog to see when Tiana's Bayou Adventure is going to open in Magic Kingdom Park. It's currently slated to open in late 2024. But even if it isn't open when you are there, there are still some great experiences just waiting for you. TRON Lightcycle / Run Presented by Enterprise is a thrilling addition to Magic Kingdom Park and since Journey of Water, Inspired by Moana is likely opening in late 2023 in EPCOT, you should be able to experience that as well.

    Christina, it's great that you are getting such a head start on planning your amazing visit to the Walt Disney World Resort. Please feel free to reach out to me in the future if you have any other questions.
