As soon as we planned this trip, it was decided we wanted to try and eat lunch at Be Our Guest to celebrate Lisa and Bella’s birthdays. We had eaten dinner here last summer to celebrate our anniversary and absolutely loved it!
We knew that the line for lunch formed early, and that waits could be long. But we’d also heard that it was possible to get a FastPass+ reservation for lunch.

Our reservation was made, and I printed the confirmation screen as a backup. On our Magic Kingdom day, we headed over for lunch and sure enough there were two lines.
There were menus here to browse as the line moved through the room and into the library, where you were asked how you were paying (room charge, dining plan, etc) and directed to either a kiosk or a live CM to place your order.
|For lunch the Library is used for ordering. At Dinner, it becomes the Beast Meet and Greet.|
Once our order was placed, we were told to “find any table we liked, have a seat, place the receipt on the table, and our food would be brought to us.”
We chose a table in the Rose Room. The room is decorated with paintings all around on the wall, and in the center is a rotating music box figurine of Belle and the Beast dancing together in their Ballroom attire.
Disney stalked us successfully and delivered the food to our table, confirming the order against our receipt. It took a while to get our food, but not overly long.
I had the Croque Monsieur – Grilled sandwich of carved ham, Gruyere cheese, and bechamel with Pommes Frites. $11.19
Lisa had the Vegetable Quiche – mushroom, zucchini, bell pepper, onion, and chive quiche; served with baby lettuce coated with Champagne vinaigrette $8.99
We got Jackson the Macaroni Maurice
Whole-Grain Macaroni with Marinara Sauce and Mozzarella served with Seasonal Vegetables6.99
Bella got the Mickey Meatloaf
Turkey Meatloaf with Broccoli Florets and Zucchini served with Orange “Stuff” for Dipping. $8.49
The food was okay. Lisa’s quiche left her wanting more vegetables in it, as most of it was just egg. My sandwich was good, just nothing I would go out of my way to have again. The kids’ meals were small. At least Bella’s came with 2 vegetables. Jackson’s “seasonal vegetables” were two pieces of broccoli.
The only thing that won high praise was the “orange stuff” in Bella’s meal. We all tried it and thought it was delicious.
We also ordered dessert. We placed that order at the same time as our lunch, and it arrived along with all the other food, sitting there on the table and taunting us as we tried to focus on our lunch.
Jackson and I shared a Triple Chocolate Cupcake – chocolate sponge cake, chocolate mousse filling, and choclate ganache $3.19 I had eaten one when we had dinner here last summer, so I knew it was good.
Bella chose the Strawberry Cream Cheese Cupcake – vanilla sponge cake, strawberry mousse filling, and cream cheese icing $3.19 It looked amazing and she said it was delicious.
Lisa got the The Master’s Cupcake – Chocolate Sponge Cake topped with Lumiere’s special “Grey Stuff” $3.19
She said it was sinful, and she didn’t share it with us, so we have to take her word for it.
Overall, it was a nice way to celebrate the birthdays of our 2 special girls. The atmosphere of Be Our Guest is absolutely amazing! I think from now on we’ll be going for dinner to get the whole experience though!
