What wonderful updates! I love the look of the Be Our Guest Restaurant. I can see why Anakin would be leery of eating inside the West Wing. It does have that dark, scary look to it.

All of the food looks really really good. Just when I thought that I had all of our ADRs planned out, I see pictures of the food at BOG.

I'd suggest eating both lunch and dinner at BOG. The experiences are so uniquely different.

We did have five nice days here in PA, the best being Sunday and Monday. Dh missed out on the best golfing days of Nov. due to this bug.

Now it is cold again. Had ice on our deck yesterday. Oh, and a bear visit Sunday night, took down my feeder that I had just filled Sunday afternoon. And broke my feeder pole. I thought they weren't hungry any more at this time of year as they slowed down to go into hibernation. I have to assume now that I've got a bear hibernating somewhere close to me!
Definately do both!! The experience is so different between lunch and dinner.

I hope you both feel better, glad you got some nice weather.

How scary, a bear. Thank goodness you weren't outside then. Guess those nice days before woke him?

I hope that we are able to request to not be seated in the West Wing when we go. I wonder if that would be a request we could put in ahead of time? Thanks for the heads up on the cupcakes. I would never have thought to use a fork. Do you think they wash and reuse the cupcake holders or are they disposable?

Not sure. I was told on the phone it would not be a character meal, but, I don't know.

When we checked into dinner, I asked if we could request the Ballroom. The cm said yes, but that it may take longer to meet a dining room request. I just made reservations for March and April. I requested Ballroom on each resie.

They are disposable.

I could sure go for one of those cupcakes right now!

I remember reading that too. I guess it was part of the rumors and perhaps the idea was kicked around by Disney, however it is not a character meal.

I would suggest keeping an eye on Kennythepirates blog. http://kennythepirate.com/disney-wor...schedule-list/ If there are any changes, I'm sure he'd be one of the first to post about it!

I was told the same when I made my reservations today.

The food looks fantastic! Especially love the cupcakes (and Yoda in the background). That's funny that your inlaw said it was nice lol. It was 70 at home when I left so I guess my body is in shock. Going to the casino and little Italy. Would love to do r&r hall of fame but only opened late tonight and we have things scheduled. Been in class each day till 4:30.

That sounds great. I don't understand why they didn't make the place more ECV and WC friendly. You would think that Disney would have learned that by now.

They will be heading here on Saturday. It will probably feel hot here. It was in the 70's here today.

Is the class in a hotel? Is there anything in walking distance?

I don't know why either? There are some main areas where there is enough room for both to fit in passing. But the majority of space just fits their cart.

Well, maybe when the popularity goes down they will take out some of the tables making more room.

I honestly don't see the popularity going down for years. The restaurant is just breathtaking! I see continuing to be as popular if not more so than Cinderella's
Royal Table.

Disneyland really only has one place that is that big. It is the Blue Bayou inside of the Pirates of the Caribbean. It is lit by candles and lanterns and is a little on the dark side. But the food is good and the atmosphere is great with the ride going by.

I remember you talking about how you and Scotty were having dinner there and you kids spotted you from the ride. Very cool!

We got walk-up dinner reservations at BOG last week! We were there for an AP preview day - and dinner was very good. My one complaint - I did not have my "cheater" glasses with me, and because it is so dimly lit in the main dining room (very small electric candle on the table) I could not read the menu. Our server also brought a flashlight to the table for us to use. I saw this as a recurring complaint from other guests around us.
