    We've eaten at several of WDW restaurants. We've had some pretty amazing experiences. We are surprising our 10 year old daughter for her 10th bday. We always talk about where we want to try next. DD's next eating experience wish list for WDW includes BOG for dinner (we loved it for lunch last trip) and Chef de France. She says she wants to see the characters in BOG and has heard of Remy's appearances at CdF. We will be arriving in Orlando about 5pm on her actual bday. I'm prertty sure we should be able to make one of the restaurants before closing.
    So, my question to you all is...
    Which would you chose and why?

    Some helpful info about us:
    I use a wheelchair
    DD loves attention is not shy at all.
    Alcohol isn't a priority.

    Well I haven't been to either but I'm going to both on my next trip and from what I've researched(someone please correct me if I'm wrong) I believe that Remy only appears in Chefs during the Lunch service. So if you're planning on dinner and want to meet a character I'd say BoG would be best.

    ahh... Thank you. I thought it was the other way around. I thought Remy only showed up at dinner. Thank you so very very much. DD would have been very disappointed.

    I would choose Be Our Guest hands down. We were just there at the end of January and ate at both restaurants. Out of all 7 table service meals that we had, Be Our Guest was our favourite. The server was wonderful and called all of the girls princesses the whole time. It felt like we were in the movie and the ballrooom was absolutely breathtaking. The meal itself was delicious and the dessert was super yummy too (I recommend the strawberry cupcake). I have a 7 year old girl and boy/girl 4 year old twins and they had so much fun there too. After our meal we were invited to take a look around and then we got to go and have our picture taken with the master (the beast) who was there that day.

    Our experience at Chefs de Frances was not very good. Our waiter was terrible and I found him very rude. Considering all of the high reviews that this restaurant has I was disappointed in the food. The only thing about this restaurant that I can say we really enjoyed was when Remy from Ratatoille visited our table. He was adorable.

    I would say Be Our Guest, hands down for sure, especially for a princess who will be celebrating her 10th birthday. You should take her to the Bippiti Bopitti Boutique for a Belle makeover before going to dinner. How awesome would that be? I know it is expensive, but I thought it was worth every penny (and we are on a budget as I am a stay at home mom).

    Hope this advice helps and that you have a great trip!

    I believe Remy's last appearance is around 5:20p...not so sure you'd make it in time...unless you were able to arrive earlier. BOG sounds like the way to go to me!

    Thank you. That helps. I agree BBB is a wonderful experience. She did it last trip! It was so special I will never forget it. So, special I can't imaging topping it. If we had planned doing this bday trip, I would have held off on the BBB until then.

    It's funny you should mention... I did hit the lottery & find super bowl tickets on my front lawn the same day. :rotfl2: Actually her bday is a little more than 6 mnths away. We haven't hit the 180 day mark yet. Thanks



    We don't expect special anything from WDW. Just there everyday magic. We've been for birthdays, anniversaries, graduations. I don't think we have ever been disappointed due to our expectations for our event.

    Great info. Thank you.
