Lunch Reservations Available for ‘Be Our Guest’ Restaurant

Previously in 2014, guests were chosen at random to experience lunch at Be Our Guest Restaurant as part of an experimental FastPass system. Now, the Walt Disney World® Resort has made a change that will utilize their existing Advance Dining Reservations (ADR) system.

Lunch reservations are now open for a fast-casual lunch service between 10:30a-2:30p. No other changes have have happened – lunch is still only (1) counter service meal on any Disney Dining Plan. Much like ADRs for table service locations, reservations for lunch at Be Our Guest are available 180 days in advance. To expedite service, you’ll have an option to preorder your food 30 days prior to 5 minutes before your reservation!

Dinner service remains unchanged as a table service meal available 180 days in advance.
