Since it opened back in 2012, Be Our Guest Restaurant has drawn guests in with the dream of eating in the Beast’s Castle from Beauty and the Beast. And in so many ways, the restaurant lives up to our wildest animated dreams.
If you want to eat where the dishes sing and dance, usually you’re going to want to make an Advance Dining Reservation, but is Be Our Guest worth it for your group?
How Do ADRs Work, Again?
At 180 days out from your Disney World vacation, you can start making reservations for those primo restaurants that you don’t want to miss out on. If you’re planning on enjoying character meals, like Chef Mickey’s, or you want to splurge at a signature restaurant, like California Grill, we highly recommend that you make those Advance Dining Reservations.
To make your reservations, all you need to do is go into your My Disney Experience account and add it to your plans (assuming there are ADRs still available — they do go fast!). Once you hit that 180 day mark, you can make reservations for up to 10 days of your vacation!

So Why Should You Get An ADR For Be Our Guest?
Be Our Guest is really popular and has been since it opened. While you can walk up (emphasis on the word can), most tables are already booked for reservations by any given day, and your chances of walking up are about as low as Le Fou’s self-esteem.
As for why you’d want to eat at Be Our Guest anyway, we have one word for you: decor. It’s an immersive dining experience that fans of the animated film will love. While the food is good (and sometimes great), it’s really the decor that is the big draw here.
Do You Need The Reservation?
If you already know you have to eat at Be Our Guest, yes, you probably want to make a reservation as early as possible, but the restaurant isn’t for everybody. The food is a little pricey, and if you’re not using the Disney Dining Plan, the bill can add up!
Because it’s super-popular, you probably won’t be dining in a zen-like state, either. Guests and Cast Members will be coming by almost constantly as tables open up and then fill just as quickly.
We think Be Our Guest’s attention to detail and food are both worth a visit, and the best way to guarantee yourself of putting the service to the test is making that Advance Dining Reservation.
