Be Our Guest Video


They day is fast approaching for the opening celebration for the New Fantasyland at Walt Disney World’s Magic Kingdom in Orlando, Florida. The official date is December 6th, 2012 but news, pictures and videos continue to leak out to great joy of those of us who cannot wait. There has even been a bit of a test run, called a soft-opening, to let guests get an idea of what to expect.

One of the highly anticpated new features of the New Fantasyland is the Be Our Guest Restaurant. Themed, as you might guess, with details from Beauty and the Beast, this new dining establishment will be in the Beasts Castle, one of the two new castles that are part of the Fantasyland expansion.

As you will see from the video below Be Our Guest will certainly be an immersive experience. There are three areas to dine in, the Ballroom, the Rose Gallery and the West Wing. Each area is filled with detail from the movie, from an actual rose that drops petals to snow falling outside the windows. Guests will truly feel as though they are in the movie.

Be Our Guest will offer two dining experiences.  During the day it will be a counter service restaurant but at night it will offer table service amenities. All of the meals will offer a french flaire. The menu will include:

  • Sandwiches and salads at lunchtime, including the classic croque monsieur (ham and cheese sandwich), tuna Niçoise salad and grilled steak sandwich with garlic butter spread—plus, of course, pommes frites (French fries)
  • Heartier fare at dinner, including braised pork, grilled strip steak with pommes frites, French onion soup and vegetable quiche, accompanied by a selection of wine and beer that complements the French-inspired cuisine

For a full menu check out this great post by the wondeful team at the Disney Food Blog. Another thing to note for those who enjoy adult beverages, this will be the first restaurant in the Magic Kingdom to offer alcohalic beverages.

Be sure to watch the video!
