Warm up your dialing fingers (but not your mouse, quite yet)! Phone reservations for dinner at the soon-to-open Be Our Guest Restaurant in New Fantasyland open at 7 a.m. Eastern Time today. You can make reservations for dates from November 19 (opening day) through February 16 (180 days from now) by calling the Walt Disney World Dining Line at 407-WDW-DINE (407-939-3463).
If you'd like to use the nice interface at the Walt Disney World website, you'll need to wait until this Wednesday, August 22.
At lunch, you'll order using ordering kiosks similar to those in use at Pecos Bill's Cafe, with choices such as Croque Monsieur, Grilled Steak Sandwich, and Tuna Niçoise Salad. There will be staffed cashier stations in case you need to pay with cash or if you need to make a special request. Once you order, either by kiosk or by cashier, have a seat. A castle servant will deliver your meal on actual china. There are no paper plates here.
At dinner, the meal is traditional table service featuring such entrees as Rotisserie Rock Hen, Grilled Strip Steak, Sauteed Shrimp and Scallops, and Ratatouille Confit Byaldi. You can take a look at the complete menu offerings online (lunch menu and dinner menu).
While the demand for the new restaurant is expected to rival that for Cinderella's Royal Table, at least initially, the location will still only cost one quick-service credit for lunch and one table-service credit for dinner on the Disney Dining Plan.
The food is French-inspired—"After all, Miss, this is France!" You'll be able to eat in one of three dining rooms. The West Wing, with Beast's enchanted rose, should be a favorite, as should the Ballroom, ripped straight from perhaps the movie's most iconic scene. The Rose Gallery is probably a bit of a wild card until proven out.
So if you want to get a reservation at this new location that's sure to be high in demand, get on the phone at 7:00 this morning, or at least as early as you can. Good luck!
