The Magic Trip: Disney World (Be Our Guest Restaurant)

I feel like Be Our Guest Restaurant needed its own post.  That’s how awesome it was.

One of the challenges in being an actor is it’s very hard to plan vacations in advance.  You never know what your schedule is going to be.  That’s why we ended up driving down to Disney World and Universal in the first place–it could be booked very last minute and not cost an absolute fortune like it would if I booked a flight somewhere.  However, this posed a problem when I wanted to grab a reservation at Be Our Guest Restaurant in Magic Kingdom.  Reservations could be made up to 180 days in advance!

For those of you unfamiliar with the Be Our Guest, it’s the restaurant in the new section of the Magic Kingdom that is modeled after the Beast’s castle in Beauty and the Beast.  You know being the Belle fanatic I am, I just had to eat there.

We got our tickets for Disney about two weeks before we left, so I knew that getting a reservation was slim to none.  I consoled myself with the fact that they offer a lunch counter service, so even though it wouldn’t be the same, I knew I would at least get in.  I was determined though to get a dinner reservation.

This girl was on a mission!

I literally checked every single morning to see if there were any cancellations during our stay.  Low and behold, three days before we left I got one! And for our last night in Disney! It was a great end to our Disney portion of the trip.
