Well, that did not take long! Many of you just read my previous article regarding rumored changes to Magic Kingdom’s Be Our Guest (BOG) restaurant. Well – it is now official! The news so many of us have all been waiting for has finally been released AND confirmed by Disney. WDW News Today just reported that, as of February 25th, Be Our Guest will offer everyone the opportunity to schedule Advanced Dining Reservations for lunch. Reservations can either be made by phone or through the MyDisneyExperience website and I can only assume this will mean that Guests will have up to the same 180 day window as table service restaurants; however, the 180 day window is something that has not been confirmed as of yet. In addition to making the reservations, Guests will have the opportunity to pre-order their food and drink any time between 30 days and 5 minutes before their scheduled arrival at the Magic Kingdom restaurant. Pre-ordering is optional, but certainly has its benefits to many.
For those who enjoy starting the day off with an enchanted meal, it has also been confirmed by Disney that breakfast will be served! At some point during 2015, Guests will be able to dine in Beast’s Castle in the early morning hours. Further details have yet to be released regarding such things as hours of service, menu options and type of service (table versus counter). Some have even speculated that there may be Characters roaming the dining rooms during breakfast, but this is also something that has no confirmation as of yet. As soon as further details are available, we will do our best to let you know. Be sure to stay tuned to Magical DIStractions!
I’m excited! Are you? I adore this beautifully themed restaurant and take in something new every time my family dines there. We have enjoyed both lunch and dinner here, as well as participated in the Advanced Meal Planning (AMP) trial. This is certainly a very difficult restaurant for which to secure reservations. By providing service during breakfast hours, perhaps a greater number of families will be able to enjoy a decadent meal in one of the most enchanted restaurants in the Magic Kingdom.
DIStracted Tip: Call Disney Dining for reservations up to 180 days prior to your first day of arrival or go on to MyDisneyExperience.com to search for availability.
Tell us what you think about breakfast being served at Be Our Guest or about your experience with the AMP test. We’d love to hear from you!
Until next time ~
