The Grey Stuff at Be our Guest Restaurant

My family is planning our first trip to Disney World in November. I am going to try to get reservations at Be Our Guest for dinner. I read that in order to get the "Grey Stuff" it has to be a special occasion. Is a first time trip special enough?

That'll depend on your server.

You can ask for it and they will bring you 1 plate of it so that everybody at the table can have a taste.

I've heard that you just need to ask for it. They offer it for special occasions, but if you ask for it they will give it to you.

If you'd like to just ask for it, it depends on your server and how generous he/she is feeling. A surefire way to get some is to add a celebration to your ADR, such as a birthday or anniversary. You can also get a free button from City Hall to wear.

The Grey Stuff is a sweet mousse of some sort. Different people have reported tasting different flavors. I had been told it was an Oreo mousse and that's what it tasted like to me. There's a link in my signature to a thread called "Everything you ever wanted to know about Be Our Guest." The post that covers dinner has a photo of The Grey Stuff and includes more info about it

Is there a rose in it now? All the pictures I have seen have not had a rose and when I tried it back when the restaurant opened, there wasn't a rose.

We were there on Mar. 19. There wasn't a rose on it.

But...the napkins at BOG are folded like roses. Nice touch.

We ate there about a week ago and we were given the grey stuff. My DD ate it, she said it tasted like chocolate. We didn't ask for it, nor did we have a celebration. There was no rose.

I believe the photos that show a rose are promotional photos from before the restaurant opened. I haven't heard any reports of anyone receiving it with a rose.

It's funny to me that the 'grey stuff' is desserty. When I watch B&B I always assumed the grey stuff was fois grois. . I like mousse better.
