The Beauty and the Beast themed Be Our Guest Restaurant promises to add a whole new dimension of story telling as guests get the chance to be immersed in the memorable ballroom scene where Belle and the Beast danced together from the classic Disney animated film.
Disney World will start taking phone reservations for this new restaurant, located in the Fantasyland expansion of Magic Kingdom, beginning at 7 a.m., August 20, 2102. The first available dinner slots for Be Our Guest will be on November 19, 2012. This is also the date Disney has said that there will be soft openings of some new Fantasyland attractions. Reservations can be made 180 days in advance by calling 407-939-3463 or visiting any Guest Relations theme park location or Guest Services desk at a resort. Online reservations will be available August 22, 2012 by visiting www.disneyworld.com/dine.
The restaurant will be “quick and casual” during lunchtime, when no reservations will be taken. For dinner, it will transform into table service with three separate dining areas: The Ballroom with domed ceiling, twinkling chandeliers, and a glimpse of snow falling outside, the mysterious West Wing with the enchanted rose, and the Rose Gallery with larger than life figures of Belle and Beast. Seating preferences will be handled when groups check in at the restaurant, which is built beneath Beast’s Castle.
The cuisine is French-inspired. Lunch items include, tuna Niçoise salad, Croque Monsieur sandwich, carved turkey on a warm baguette with Dijon mayonnaise and others. Dinnertime entrées will include pork rack chop with au gratin pasta, rotisserie rock hen with roasted fingerling potatoes, pan-seared salmon in leek fondue, sautéed shrimp and scallops with veggies in puff pastry with creamy lobster sauce and others. Of course, there will also be a childrens’ menu including a carved turkey sandwich, roasted pulled pork, Mickey meatloaf, seared mahi mahi, or whole-grain macaroni topped with marinara and mozzarella for lunch and grilled steak, grilled fish of the day, whole-grain macaroni, or grilled chicken breast for dinner.
