As you probably already know, last weekend the new Beauty And The Beast Live Action movie was released in theaters. I was lucky enough to get to go see it, and I loved it – the characters were amazing – especially the beast! The movie will bring about a whole new generation of Beauty And The Beast lovers – and Disney World is more than prepared for that! When they re-designed Fantasyland, they included a restaurant themed after the movie called “Be Our Guest” – and it is basically like walking into the movie! Check it out:
The restaurant serves breakfast, lunch and dinner with a French-themed menu, featuring items like Croque Monsieur (grilled ham and cheese sandwich), Tuna Nicoise Salad, and of course – “The Grey Stuff” is offered on the dessert menu (try your hand at making your own Grey Stuff At Home!)
While it is labeled as a “Quick Service” Restaurant, I would recommend making a reservation if you’re planning to head here – as the lines can be insane, and it will only get busier with the release of the new movie! I can’t wait to try it out next time I’m in WDW!

Disney is working hard on their Fantasyland Expansion, adding new attractions and restaurants that will all be open for guests to enjoy by the end of the year.
One of the changes they are making is the creation of a Beauty And The Beast themed area featuring a castle, tavern, and restaurant. The Be Our Guest Restaurant will serve a French themed counter service lunch and sit down dinner, which includes a beer and wine list that is also French inspired (check out the recently released menus here). What is unique about this is that this is the first time that alcohol has EVER been served in the Magic Kingdom.
Many people are upset about this, saying that alcohol was something Walt didn’t want in the Magic Kingdom, and I personally was shocked to hear the news that they would be serving beer and wine and Be Our Guest. But when I thought about it, I realized it really only was a matter of time before this was going to happen, and besides that, what’s a Grench restaurant without wine, its practically a requirement!
It will be interesting to see if this becomes a trend and if other spots in the Magic Kingdom will start to offer ‘adult beverages’ as well. What do you think, should alcohol be a part of Be Our Guest and the Magic Kingdom?
In case you didn’t know, today is a very glorious day in the world of Walt Disney World vacation planners – Disney released their 2013 vacation packages today – and I know I personally can’t wait to book our trip for Sepember 2013. We are going to stay at the brand new Art of Animation Resort, and can’t wait to try the brand new Be Our Guest Restaurant inside the brand new Beast’s Castle, inside the brand new Fantasyland …. wow that’s a lot of new stuff!
Disney is really working hard to make the guest experience even better, so now is really a good time to think about Booking A Trip to Walt Disney World!
