Be our Guest in the Magic Kingdom is one of the newer restaurants on Disney Property and it is so cute and adorable!
And even though it’s been open for several years now, there’s still some buzz about them, especially since they changed their menu (again) last year! It’s also unique in how you order and how they serve the food- not quite like other quick-service places on the property.
Because of that I have separated this post into two sections. This will cover breakfast and lunch, and you can find the Be Our Guest Dinner Review here.
We’ve eaten there a few times since then and have really enjoyed most of our food. So let’s talk about the restaurant and highlight what’s yummy to eat.

Where’s it located?
You’ll find this fun restaurant in Magic Kingdom.
Since it is in the main park (the one everyone dreams about!) you might have a hard time get a reservation. Just keep checking!
It’s located towards the back right, kind of in fantasy land, but it’s easy to miss the turn to enter this area.
It’s by gaston’s tavern, and the little mermaid ride, and I promise you I’ve walked by it too many times to count!
Details about Be Our Guest
This restaurant is very unique in how you order your food. You check in at the beginning of the line and walk down where you wait to enter the castle.
You can preorder before hand, or speak to a chef in person. For those that haven’t preordered, your handed a menu (they dont have an allergy one) and then you stand in line till you get to a que area with another hostess.
I tell them I have allergies and they directed me to a person (instead of the automated machine)
The cashier will go over the allergies and what options they have available. I’ve only done this once (every other time I’ve pre-ordered) and they weren’t very knowledgable.
They offered the french dip- even though the sauce as a CC warning and you aren’t served with it. Kind of defeats the purpose to have a meat and bread sandwich with no sauce and no cheese!
After ordering you get a rose puck- we’ve gotten one every time even if we have a magic band. It’s how they know where you are sitting!
You then pick a place to sit and get your drinks and silverware.
The inside has three areas for you to choose from. All of them have poor lighting for picture taking. We’ve sat in all three. The room to the far right seems to have the most seating (and we’ve brought our stroller in here) that would be the place to sit if you have ECV or a mobility device.
The main room is the ballroom and it is beautifully designed!
The room to the far left is the room where the rose is stored. It has some amazing theming and details such as a changing picture and the rose lighting up. Do go here to see the sights even if you can’t snag a table!
Once your food is ready they bring it out to you on a rolling cart. It’s very fun!
The Breakfast food
Breakfast here is our favorite meal. We’ve had it a few times and it’s a great way to preorder, get to the parks, eat and make a game plan!
We like to do mobile ordering so we can see exactly what is available. This gluten free bread from Erin Mckennas is heavenly. Make sure you get that with your meal!
The Lunch food
The lunch food is so/so. I wouldn’t consider this the best gluten free quick serve, but it is edible so that counts. We’ve also never had an issue with CC here or given the wrong food. So points for that as well!
This last time we had the french dip on the millet bread and the kids had turkey sandwiches.
The fries were very good!
The millet bread… wasn’t. It broke apart for all of us, so we just ended up eating the meat and sides.
Where’s the Allergy Menu?
I’ve got bad news friends!
Not every place has an allergen menu- even though I dedicate so much time to reviews and menus- they are only about 50% reliable.
It’s why I’ve created this guide that tells you what you need to know for a successful food allergy friendly vacation. From who to talk to, what to expect (with pictures!) and where to go so you have the most magical (and SAFE!) vacation to Disney World.
Tell me about Dinner
You can read all about Be Our Guest Dinner in this post. It is separate because it’s considered a signature dining event and it’s a character meal.
And by character meal I mean that you can meet the Beast in his study. He doesn’t come around to you and he doesn’t do signatures.
BUT you do have photopass here, so that’s a nice touch. We got some really good pictures when we went!
Will we be back?
For lunch- 50% (it’s just so cute! I might try the food again, this is one place I WANT IT TO WORK!!!)
