    Exclamation Be Our Guest Restaurant will start taking reservations August 20, 2012 7:00 am (EST)!

    The opening date of Be Our Guest Restaurant has always been very vague. Since Disney announced on Wednesday that they will start taking ADRs at the end of August, they are getting closer to announcing an "official" opening date. Rumors are that they want it open for the "holidays". To me, that means opening the week of Thanksgiving!!!

    It will be a counter-service (quick service) by day and sit-down restaurant by night. However, it will not be like most counter-service locations onsite. Ordering has been modeled like the terminals at Pecos Bill and Contempo Cafe.

    From the DisneyParksblog.com . . .

    Guest-activated terminals make ordering a snap (there also will be traditional cashiers for cash orders and special dietary requests). You order, take a seat and lunch is delivered to your table – on china, not paper.


    Disney Dining Plan:
    For those on the Disney Dining Plan, it WILL be included.
    Lunch will be one counter-service credit
    Dinner will be one table-service credit.

    An official menu has not been released yet. But, Disney has given a little taste of what will be served.

    Be Our Guest Menu
    (Lunch)

    Salads
    Tuna Niçoise salad
    Quinoa, shallot and chive salad

    Sandwiches
    Croque Monsieur sandwich with carved ham, Gruyere cheese, béchamel w/pomme frites (french fries)
    Carved turkey on a warm baguette with Dijon mayonnaise w/pomme frites
    Grilled steak sandwich with garlic butter spread w/pomme frites

    Other Choices
    Braised pork
    Vegetable quiche

    Kids' Menu (Lunch)
    Mickey meatloaf
    Seared mahi mahi
    Whole-grain macaroni topped with marinara and mozzarella
    Carved turkey sandwich
    Roasted pulled pork

    (Dinner)

    Starters
    Charcuterie plate with cured meats and sausages
    Mussels steamed in white wine

    Soups
    French onion
    Potato leek soup

    Salads
    Salad with champagne vinaigrette
    Salad Trio
    (Roasted beet, raisins and orange; green beans, tomatoes and roasted shallots; and watermelon, radish and mint.)

    Main Entrees
    Thyme-scented pork rack chop w/au gratin pasta
    Rotisserie rock hen w/roasted fingerling potatoes
    Pan-seared salmon in leek fondue
    Grilled strip steak w/pomme frites
    Sautéed shrimp and scallops with veggies in puff pastry with creamy lobster sauce
    Oven-baked ratatouille

    Kids' Menu (Dinner)
    Whole-grain macaroni topped with marinara and mozzarella
    Grilled steak
    Grilled fish of the day
    Grilled chicken breast

    Dessert
    Cupcakes (strawberry cream cheese or triple chocolate)
    Chocolate cream puff

    There is something poetic about a company that can announce the date that they are going to start taking ADR's yet can't tell you when the restaurant is going to open.

    Different dining options. Wonder what the children at large are going to think of the food options on the kids menu. My DD would have been so happy and my DS at that age would have walked away hungry, none of that would have appealed to him.
    Some people are like Slinkies.

    They aren't really good for anything,
    but they still bring a smile to my face when I push them down a flight of stairs.

    Friends are Gods way of apologizing to us for our families.

    What a coincidence; I was just on the phone last weekend making some ADRs and asking about this very restaurant. They had no info at all, which was disappointing. I might try to switch a dinner reservation to this place, if it is open when I am visiting.

    Welcome to the Magic Kingdom!

    We may try it on our next family trip, whenever that may be. I thought some of the original plans called for a character meal during dinner hours or was that just speculation?

    At this time, Disney is not advertising dinner at Be Our Guest Restaurant as a character meal.

    However, there will be a Meet-and-Greet in Belle's Village . . .

    Enchanted Tales with Belle – A new interactive character meet-and-greet location for Belle and Lumiere, guests will start in Maurice’s workshop, where they step through a magical mirror straight into the Beast’s library.

    ,Impressed with the photo's Disney posted. Nice details.

    One of the floor mosaics in the entrance is the Beast's enchanted rose trimmed in gold.

    The mosaics on the walls tell the love story of Belle and the Beast.

    Even though the restaurant has not been listed as a character-dining experience, I did find some information hinting to the fact that they might incorporate Disney's Living Character Initiative to the restaurant. This is where audio-animatronic characters interact with guests. Similar to Remy at Les Chefs de France. Only this time, Lumiere would interact with guests from a cart. At this time, this is only a rumor and not confirmed by Disney Parks.

    Only time will tell . . .

    There will be three dining rooms in Beast's Castle. (West Wing, Library, and the Ballroom) The restaurant will seat 552 guests. This is a well-needed additional dining location for the Magic Kingdom.

    Some more pictures I found online to give you an idea of how amazing this restaurant is . . .

    A little bummed. We won't be dining there this year. My husband and I are visiting WDW in late October, not returning until May 2013 with the kids. So, now I'll have to live vicariously through y'all until we can dine there in May.

    Is anyone else having issues getting through? I've been calling since just before 7 (Eastern), and I've gotten busy signals or "your call did not go through" messages for 20 minutes now.
