Starting February 25 2015, reservations will be available for lunch at the Be Our Guest Restaurant in the Magic Kingdom's New Fantasyland.

Once a reservation has been made (up to 180 days in advance), either by calling 407-WDW-DINE, or by using the My Disney Experience website or app, guests will be able to pre-order meals using My Disney Experience. The ordering window opens up 30 days before the reservation time through to 5 minutes before the reservation time.

For those guests that do not wish to make pre-order selections, menu choices can be made at the kiosks inside the restaurant upon arrival.

As with all reservations at Walt Disney World, a credit card guarantee is required and a $10 per guest no-show fee will be applied if not cancelled by the day before.

This system has been in testing for the last year with Walt Disney World Resort hotel guests, but from February 25 this option becomes open to all guests.

Dinner remains table service with advance reservations, and expect to see a breakfast offering added to the lineup.

ALERT: I managed to get a lunch reservation so I'm cancelling my reservation for 4pm on March 12 right now. Maybe somebody can go and grab it!

I am sure you will have success later tonight when you call. CMs always seem to be able to work through the wonky system. Good luck with the new job possibility!

I can't tie up my phone! I've been playing phone tag with someone who seems to want to hire me, and the last voicemail I told them that I would have my phone beside me all day today. Not Disney's fault, but definitely not helping my stress levels. I'll try to call for a reservation this evening though.

Call...even if you have to wait on hold, you can pass the time doing something other than banging your head against your computer. ;)

I'm still having problems :banghead: I'm trying to get a lunch for 5 people, May 3-9. Yesterday nothing was coming up, and today the website keeps giving me error messages and kicking me off. The app won't even let me try to find a table. This is so frustrating.

We felt the food was the best quick service food we'd had in the MK for sure. Maybe not a high bar. Add to that it is a pretty cool interior.

I finally got my resevation for the exact day and exact time I wanted in March!!!!

TuvaluFeb 26, 2015

We go for the food.

True. However, it is a resturant, so the food is an important element.

It's in response to the one above me where the article talks about the food. I probably should have quoted it when I replied.

You don't really go to Be Our Guest for the food. I know crazy right? You go for the experience and atmosphere that the amazing imagineers created. At least this has always been my thought on why I go to BoG.

My DW found this opinion article about the most overrated things at WDW... which I thought was hilarious given the insane scramble yesterday for ADRs at BOG. 10. Be Our Guest (Magic Kingdom) "I can hear you screaming at the computer. But, when you consider the difficulty in getting a dinner reservation (often impossible even at 180 days out), and the long line to get in for lunch it is hard to say that the food and experience live up to all of that. There is the FastPass+ option for lunch for onsite guests, so that is a good way to get in to do this. And I do feel that the atmosphere inside is spectacular. The food at dinner I felt was a little too salty, and although I have been a big fan of lunch for several trips our last trip I was disappointed."

I still have flashbacks from that insane morning! :in pain:
