Recent Experience for Lunch at BOG?

Hello! We will be in the Magic Kingdom this Friday ( ); and want to have lunch at BOG. I am just wondering if anyone has been there now that the Christmas crowds have died down some; and can tell me how the lines are currently? I am kind of expecting the whole experience to take about an hour--it seems like from what I have read that the longest waits have been about 45 minutes.

TIA!

We ate there last Thursday...

and the wait was around 45 minutes to order our food. Once we ordered, the process was pretty quick. There is a tremendous amount of seating in the three dining rooms so the real hang-up is getting through the ordering process. We all enjoyed our meals tremendously!

What time do they open for lunch? Is it worth getting there right before they open if you want to have lunch here?

This isn't recent, but perhaps it will help put your mind at ease. We went to BOG for lunch during Thanksgiving week, yes...the week it opened. Our wait, even with those HUGE crowds, was not bad at all. We ended up waiting about 25-30 minutes, most of those outside and we entertained ourselves by taking pictures and talking to the CMs. Once we were inside, our wait was very short. I think that the key is getting there early.

Once we ordered our food, we barely had time to sit down before it arrived.

What a lovely experience! Before we went, I was not excited *at all* about the menu and was kinda "eh" about the theming, but this ended up being my absolute favorite CS in WDW. My entire family agrees! I hope the wait for you is not too long.

I'm not sure on the time they open but we got in line at 10:40am and the wait was already up to 45 minutes at that point. I have had other friends say that they got in around 10:00am. If you want to have lunch around a 'normal' time, I would suggest getting in line by 10:30.

I ate at Be Our Guest for lunch today. I got in the line at 10:55. I was at the very end of the bridge. At 11:12 I walked through the door of the building. At 11:19 I received my 'magic rose' GPS device and was directed to a cashier to order my food. If you were paying with a credit card or the dining plan you were directed to a kiosk, but for cash, directed to a live cashier. At 11:22 my food was ordered and I went to find a table. The restaurant was fairly crowded but I found a nice table in the quieter room with the rotating statue of Belle and the Beast dancing. All three rooms were open, but the West Wing was waayy too dark and creepy and the main ballroom was just too noisy. By the time I found a table and got my silverware and beverage my food was being wheeled to my table. My food was on the table, piping hot at 11:27.

I ordered the braised pork and the chocolate cream puff. The pork was served with mashed potatoes and green beans and was heavenly! The cream puff was good, but the pastry was a bit on the tough side. I probably would try a different dessert next time.

I will definitely be dining here again.

Thanks for the information, everyone! Sounds very doable. I just hope my DH doesn't have a heart attack when he sees the line!

We had a great meal too. But DS had the same complaint about his cream puff. It should have been crispier.

If we can get in for lunch I definitely want the West Wing. Dark and creepy suits us! (Two older adults, romantic but slightly morbid senses of humor!)

Thanks to the poster and people who responded here! We leave for Disney a week from tomorrow and I would REALLY like to try to sneak over to BOG for lunch. We have seen some of the new Fantasyland stuff already (just took a trip in November) but none of the shops or restaurants so I'd like to focus on that for this upcoming short trip.

I'll definitely report back myself on our wait and food if we can make it happen!

I was there Saturday for lunch. We got in line about 11 (line was all the way over the bridge) and we were done with our meal and on our way out by noon. (And that included some time just sitting at our table talking and enjoying the atmosphere.) I'm glad we took the time, and if you look at it as a table service meal rather than a counter service the wait doesn't seem bad at all.
