Since we are getting ready for our own Disney trip, I’ve written a few times recently about getting Disney Dining reservations at hard to snag restaurants.  Disney dining isn’t just about a meal – in fact, it usually isn’t really about the meal.  Instead, the hard to get reservations are usually about character experiences or other elaborately themed meals.

IMG_4896.JPGFor example, the princess breakfast in Cinderella’s Castle in the Magic Kingdom is really magical for little ones who literally get to “live” in a fairy tale for a couple hours.  However, sometimes getting a seat at the table takes very advance planning and/or tools such as this new dining reservation tool I wrote about here.

One of the hardest reservations to get right now at Walt Disney World is at the new Be Our Guest Restaurant in the newly expanded Fantasyland within the Magic Kingdom.  However, if you are like me and have been unable to get a lunch or dinner reservation inside the Beast’s Castle, you might want to go online right now and try your luck with breakfast for dates beginning October 4th.  The Be Our Guest Restaurant just started accepting reservations for breakfast served between 8AM – 10AM!  We were able to score a reservation for our October visit with many times to pick from.

According to the Disney website, breakfast is described as….

Start your day the French way—with coffee, juice and assorted pastries, from croissant and pain au chocolat to our French croissant doughnut! You can insure a bon jour with a fluffy quiche or a Croque Madame breakfast sandwich, perfectly prepared to soothe the hungriest beast.

Quick-service breakfast is available from 8:00 AM to 10:00 AM, and reservations are recommended.

It is worth mentioning that while lunch and dinner reservations can be made 180 days in advance, the website says that breakfast reservations are currently only accepted 90 days in advance at this restaurant.  That said, I see availability through January 31st for Be Our Guest at breakfast time.

Many thanks to Mommy Points reader Carrie for letting me know that Be Our Guest was now accepting reservations for breakfast!

  1. Thank you for this information! I just booked an 8:20am breakfast in December. Looking forward to reading your review.

  2. We did breakfast at Be Our Guest during our trip in March. Honestly we were underwhelmed as there was no character experience (im not sure if they’ve changed it, we were within the first week or two of them opening for breakfast) The biggest perk was getting into the park early and being the first people of the day to ride the seven dwarfs mine train!

  3. We did the Epcot princess breakfast when we went 2 years ago. It was very fun, with about 5 or 6 of the princesses making rounds and taking photos at each table. Food was standard breakfast, but the experience was very good overall.

  4. I’ve always enjoyed Be Our Guest and it was nice to try breakfast there on our recent trip in May. I thought the breakfast offerings were well prepared and it beats a boring quick service breakfast at other locations in the park. It’s also much cheaper than the sit down options in MK although the ambiance is just amazing!

  5. I agree with Jamie, underwhelming at best. We went in June, and we thought it was way too expensive for the very few food options and no princesses (not that we expected any).

    You are paying to look at the rooms, and it costs $20/person to do this. The food options were few and non-standard with little to eat, so picky eaters should not apply. (you can find a copy of the menu and pricing via Google.

    Bottom line, this should be a table service restaurant for all three meals. If you can’t get dinner and you visit Disney World every year/couple of years then I recommend to skip it this trip.

    I am interested to hear what MP (and especially her husband) has to say about it in October.

  6. We went two Saturdays ago for breakfast and I highly recommend it. I was able to snag a reservation a day in advance. First of all, you can get into the park up to an hour before everyone else. I might pay $20 just for that. Second, the detail of the theming is very good, especially in the west wing (the dark/scary room – maybe not good for kids that easily scare) which is where we ate. The portions are quite large and two people could definitely share one entree, especially since they bring 4-5 pastries/muffins/danishes too. One family in our group – couple + 2 small kids, all shared one entree. My family agreed that Be our Guest was definitely one of the highlights of our trip. Also, breakfast really shouldn’t take more than 30-40 min so you are out (and it’s on the other side of the park) and well positioned for some of the highest demand rides before the hordes come in.
