    My wife, son, and I have reservations for Be Our Guest. He more than likely won’t want anything on the menu. Is he able to sit with us without ordering or is every person reserved required to purchase a meal? Yes, we would feed him beforehand :)

    Heigh-Ho Jason,

    Your question made me chuckle, I am happy to hEAR you would feed him beforehand. Parenting 101: Feed a hungry child or else...  :)

    I want to be completely upfront with you so you can decide what is best for your family. Walt Disney World restaurants with a prix fixed menu such as Be Our Guest will charge each Guest, 3-years of age and older, whether they choose to eat or not. Now you may get lucky and your server may work with you but typically the rules are the rules. Talk with your server about his options and maybe they can seek out something that piques his interest. Who knows maybe he will surprise you and this will be the day he tries something new, Disney Magic is quite powerful. Or maybe he can be persuaded with a little incentive, Disney Gifts are quite powerful. Turn it into a game. Carry a small pocket-size notebook or card around for him and with each bite he takes, of new food, he earns a sticker. And if he gets a certain amount of stickers he earns a magical Disney surprise. Play this throughout your visit and maybe it will be a fun foodie adventure for him. Walt Disney World is a great place to have fun with food and maybe if you get to dine at Be Our Guest he can choose the next dining adventure.

    We are looking forward to Welcoming You All Home for Walt Disney World's 50th Anniversary and the Season of Holiday Celebration, may it be filled with many magical and memorable moments.

    Have a Practically Perfect Day,

    Amy M.

I am a Dreamer who has always believed dreams are meant to be the path to your future. Walt Disney, I believe, felt the same way, "All our dreams can come true, if we have the courage to pursue them." Disney has always been proof that endless imagination and the passion to make them come to fruition is possible. I will never be to old for Disney, it is home to all of us Dreamers.
