I did not have lunch at Be Our Guest, but DH and I had dinner there in December, and I swear it was one of the best meals of my life. The ambience is wonderful, and the food was spectacular. The wait staff was very attentive. I loved having a glass of wine while being in the Magic Kingdom!! I cannot express to anyone enough how fantastic our entire meal was. I hope to do this again soon, but DH is WDW'd out, so for our next vacation we are planning our first trip to Disneyland.

You can't go wrong trying Be Our Guest at least once for dinner. It will be an experience you won't forget.

dinner ambiance vs lunch ambiance

Is it more calm to go at night? Are you rushed during lunch??

We were not rushed 'at all' the two times we went in Nov/Dec.

We are at Disney now and will eat lunch there at least twice - the lines are not bad at all during the week. The braised pork is soooo good!

If you are a fan of Beauty and the Beast, I strongly recommend doing dinner...or both dinner and lunch. You get to meet the Beast after your meal at dinner, and I felt like dinner had "fancier"/nicer atmosphere. There's a link in my signature to a thread called "Everything you ever wanted to know about Be Our Guest." It includes lots of info and photos on both lunch and dinner

If you're OK with eating at an off-peak time and aren't going during an extremely busy time of year, you shouldn't end up waiting more than 30 minutes.

Really? I haven't heard any reports of waits anywhere close to 90 minutes. I know lines were extremely long during Easter (of course), and I know some people have waited between 45-50 minutes during peak times.

People start lining up around 9:45 or so. The restaurant opens at 10:30 and the line is cut off somewhere between 2:00-2:30 each day.

I really need some advice on this.
We have been several times for lunch, & we arrive at 10:30 stand in line, take pictures, enjoy the view, already looked at menu some of the cast members have so we are ready to order, the turkey sandwich is great, & I liked the quiche too, we always get dessert which all are great. Regardless of day or night the inside is the same, my husband loved this & we ate twice that week. Hope you enjoy!

Beast Question...

We went to BOG in December last year. We were one of the first crazies to start waiting in line at 9:00 a.m. It was worth it...it was amazing inside. The food was pretty good too.

Now onto my Title Question...Is Beast there for every dinner? I saw a nice big throne in the other room that looked like it might be where he would sit...if possible I wanna try and get in there for Dinner this coming December. I will check the first day we can make reservations...

Rumor had it that he would be there for Dinner BUT then they said it was only periodic that he was there...I SO WANT TO MEET BEAST!!

We ate there for dinner 4 night ago. DH though it was one of the best meals we had at disney. When we went for our picture with the Beast after dinner, he was fantastic. He took pics with DS and DD, and when the pictures were take, he took DD by the hand and danced with her - she thought that was pretty awesome.

Just one more thought on the wait at lunch....we went mid-week in early January...the parks were still fairly crowded after New Years, but on the down swing. We got in line at 12:15...crazy right? We were past the bridge and around the corner. Well, from the time we got in line until the time we left was 75 minutes. That included walking around after we ate and using the restrooms. And we took our time eating. I didn't pay attention to exactly how long we waited, but is wasn't more than 30 minutes.

I am so excited to go there for lunch. We were going to do dinner there, but decided to do HDDR and I needed the extra dining credit so it was an easy decision to just have lunch there instead. I don't mind the wait... I just really want to take in the atmosphere!

I am OK with a 30min wait or less. Anything else, I will just keep the dinner reservation (which I will probably end up waiting longer and then being annoyed )
Just remember that most of the line is OUTSIDE and uncovered. Meaning in August a 20 minute wait outdoors may be the death of you!! Especially with a potentially exhausted and hungry 4 year old.

We are trying to have a late lunch there in October. We have a character breakfast buffet scheduled for that morning, so we can probably make it to a late lunch (1:45-2pm). I had read somewhere that lunch was served until 2pm and you just had to be in the line by 2. If this is wrong, please advise, because this is my plan of attack. To be in in line at 1:45 for shorter waits.

Would it be a breach of queue etiquette for one person in the party to get in line to order lunch and have the others join at the table?

When we were there last week they would not allow it. The entire party had to be there and they weren't letting people just "walk in" without waiting in line.
