Be Our Guest Dinner Review

This past November I lucked into a dinner reservation at Be Our Guest only a couple weeks before my Walt Disney World agent education program. I invited along some fellow travel agents and I was so excited we would get to try out Be Our Guest for dinner! During Amanda and my “Very Merry Girls Getaway” the weekend before training we had lunch here and absolutely loved it. I’ll save that for another post though. 
 Our reservation was for 8:50pm - very close to the last reservation of the night. We were very hungry and ready to check in around 8:30. Luckily they let us in early! You check-in at the beginning of the gate. There you can request a dining room, but this may extend your wait.


West Wing

Rose Gallery

We decided to let them pick the room for us as we were hungry. After checking in they gave us a pager and we waited on the bridge until it buzzed and we were escorted by candelabra to our table.

We were taken to the Rose Gallery at first but apparently the table we were given wasn’t actually open. We were then seated in the Ballroom - no complaining here! The room can get sort of loud but we were seated at an end table and maybe that helped because I wasn’t bothered by noise.
I love the napkins folded into red roses - such a great deatil! 

If you are seated in the West Wing be prepared for some thunder. You will notice a portrait over the fireplace of Beast’s former prince self. As the last pedal on the rose falls you will hear a crash of thunder and the portrait will transform into the Beast! It’s very dramatic but some small children may be scared by the thunder. Maybe a reason to request the Ballroom, but if thunder is no big deal I might pick the West Wing over the Ballroom.

One of my favorite things about dining here is about every 30 minutes or so the Beast walks through the restaurant. It adds that extra special element to the experience.

After dinner you can head to his study to take a photo with the Beast!

Ok on to the food. I, as well as one of my dinner-mates, ordered the Thyme-Scented Pork Rack Chop with au gratin macaroni, seasonal vegetables and red wine au jus. The pork was a little dry but the macaroni was amazing. Pouring the au jus on the pork really helps the dryness. 
My roommate ordered the Grilled Strip Steak with garlic-herb butter and pommes frites. It looked amazing.

I think dessert was my favorite! They bring you a cart of options full of cupcakes and cream puffs and the infamous grey stuff! 

I chose the grey stuff and I believe someone else at the table got the Triple Chocolate Cupcake. The grey stuff is served on top of a sort of brownie. It was so good. I am glad they add the brownie because just the grey stuff mousse might seem too light.
Over all I enjoyed our dinner here and can’t wait to go back and try some appetizers and other entrees. You can’t beat the atmosphere in this restaurant. I would recommend it for the experience alone!
