Be Our Guest Dinner or Lunch

Just curious if the dining experience is much different from lunch to dinner? Is the only real change the menu and going from quick service to table. By the way, I do have dinner reservation made during the time we are there.

The main differences are the menu and switching to table service. Other differences are that they close the rose room for dinner, and that the beast is there for pictures after your meal.

I just made a reservation in Feb at 6pm and they said no characters. :-( so I'm not sure if the Beast will be there or not.

It's not a character meal. They will always say no characters as they have since it opened. And yet the Beast has been there.

We prefer lunch - like the menu - the lower cost - plus we 'like' dining in the rose room. All the ambiance is there also!

we have eaten there for dinner once, thinking of trying lunch on our next trip vs. dinner again, does the atomsphere change during lunch? Are the same tables set up at lunch vs. dinner? Where do you get your food at lunch?

We were there for dinner 3 weeks ago and ate in the Rose Room. Maybe they just open it when it's busy?

We ate there for both lunch and dinner in August. We enjoyed dinner more than lunch. It was hectic at lunch with people not understanding how to place their orders and needing help. We thought that the sandwiches were just ok. At dinner, my DH and I both ordered the puff pastry. Since I had read that it could be a little on the dry side, we ordered it with extra sauce. It was really good. It was a little on the noise side, but that doesn't bother us. The Beast walks through the dining area while you are eating and then you can meet him after you are finished.

We did both lunch and dinner this past trip. So glad we did both!!! At first we were going to just do dinner to keep it special, but then decided to do the lunch so we could experience it as well. I loved being able to choose the room for lunch (we selected the West Wing and it was a highlight!) I liked the food at lunch better than dinner and liked how we could take our time and be on our own dining pacing, not that of a server. Dinner was awesome in how you are greeted, welcomed into the castle, and get to meet the Beast afterward. We sat in the ballroom for the evening, which was what we wanted so it worked out. I would recommend both lunch and dinner! I must say however, we preferred our lunch food and experience over the dinner.

Is BOG Lunch part of the CS dining plan options?
