We called today on the reservation line. I made my hubby call this time thinking maybe he had better luck haha. They checked our accts for pin codes and there weren't any. The CM said that we should check back everyday because he said "they're being sent out like crazy." We just don't have the luck right now. Keeping my fingers crossed it happens soon though. I want to go ahead and buy our MNSSHP tickets, but I want to make sure we don't have to change our reservation first. Anyone else call today?

Storm just hit here - right at time I'm supposed to leave work. Hmm - to go ahead & leave now or wait till storm passes? That is the question!

Phone number

What phone number do you use when checking to see if you have a code? I usually use the 407- wdisney but was wondering if there was a more direct way.

That's the number I call. I wish there was a way you could just check online.

She asked when I wanted to travel and I told her Dec 1 thru Dec 7. She said "Well I can offer you free dining for those dates"

Lesson - even if they say you don't have a pin, ask if they can offer anything.

Didn't get where I wanted since the choices were very limited so I just went with AS Music. I have stayed at Pop three times and have always liked it. Hope we like AS Music.
***Jaw Drop***...Wow!

I am going to try this tomorrow night. It's my Birthday tomorrow and I'm going to hope for some special pixie dust. Probably won't work but what the heck, not going to hurt LOL!

Congrats on getting your PIN. I've never said it as clear as that, but I've said we were waiting for free dining to book. Glad someone got some Disney Magic

Here's the link for HBG's thread:

Here is the review of the Be Our Guest Restaurant from another blog I follow....

Eating dinner at Be Our Guest

Well, I guess everything canít be magical so now letís dive into this one.

This is probably THE hardest dining reservation to get in all of Disney World since itís the newest restaurant in a new section of Magic Kingdom.

I had lunch there two times previously and loved it. Itís still my favorite Quick Service in the parks (Wolfgang Puck Express is another favorite but itís in Downtown Disney) but Iím afraid dinner was a different story.

Checking in is fairly easy although they wonít let you check in more than 15 minutes early (some restaurants will allow it, others wonít). Youíre given a buzzer and asked to be on the bridge in front of the restaurant. Once itís your turn, your buzzer goes off and you are escorted in to your table.

We were seated in the West Wing which was pretty interesting for our family but would probably be too intense for small children. There is frequent thunder and lightning plus itís dark which could scare little ones.

Itís also the room with the rose with petals falling and the portrait of the Prince with slashes through it.
The Beast does come by periodically but itís very brief and really only to let you know that you can go visit him in his own room which has PhotoPass photographers set up.

We eventually ordered our drinks and food. Our daughter is a vegetarian and only had 1 entree to choose from and when it arrived, she really didnít like it. I tasted it to see for myself and it was really bad. Strong, unpleasant flavors.

She asked the waitress if she could just get a side of the mac and cheese that some of us had on our plates. Even that was so rich that each of us could only eat a bit (and we love mac and cheese Ė I ordered it a couple of other places during our trip with good results).

So we knew that some of the food didnít taste great and then we werenít happy with our service. Glasses didnít stay filled, we waited a long time to see our waitress just to ask about things like dessert and we got a lot of attitude from her.

Part of that attitude was when I told her we were celebrating our daughter and her boyfriendís graduation and I wondered if they could get The Grey Stuff. The Grey Stuff is a dollop of creamy stuff that tastes like cookies and cream and itís only available for special celebrations.

Our waitress reluctantly said sheíd see what she could do and then brought them 1 dollop of The Grey Stuff to share. Itís very, very small as it is and now they have to share it? How generous.
Based on some opinions Iíve heard from other people, service is very hit or miss here and vegetarians often end up the most disappointed due to the lack of options.

Would I suggest eating here for your trip? I will continue to recommend Be Our Guest for lunch but not for dinner. Considering how difficult the reservation is to get and the inconsistency in the service, I donít think itís worth it.

I'm glad we're doing a lunch there. Dinner doesn't sound very promising. Does anybody know the average wait for cs there?

I read that review. Like any review, it's subjective. BOG was hands down the best service we have ever had at a Disney restaurant in.. oh I'd say about 75 Disney table service meals. Now the food? It was ok. Not fabulous, and not bad. Just good. But that's the best I can say for most TS restaurants. The atmosphere was beautiful and our server was attentive, knowledgable, gave us all kinds of interesting tidbits and facts about the restaurant. It was really enjoyable.
DD is also a vegetarian and liked her entree. She did make the mistake of having the french onion soup however, which was a bad idea since she is lactose intolerant and it was full of cheese. Even the pre-meal dose of lactaid didn't save her from the all night stomach ache.
I think it's something everyone should try for themselves once. I love that you can still go and experience the restaurant for lunch if you can't get a dinner reservation.

Thank you for this response... that makes me feel much better! I was very lucky and did get a reservation during our trip. I'm so glad to hear that you had a good (well other than the tummy ache) time. Thanks!!
