Be Our Guest Restaurant




One of the things on my bucket list for the summer was to eat dinner at Be Our Guest Restaurant! The only problem, it gets completely booked up for months in advance. Luckily there are often stand by slots available if you head there at 4pm (possibly some later!) so I’ve actually had the pleasure of eating there 3 times in all three dining rooms (they have now opened up the rose dining room for dinner). The prices are decent but the menu isn’t that extensive. There is only one vegetarian main, ratatouille, which I did get on my first time there. In following visits I got a soup starter as my main.


The decor is beautiful! My favourite room is the ballroom, with it stunning chandeliers to the snowfall scene out of the windows. Be Our Guest also just so happens to be the only place where you can also meet the Beast or “master” as the Cast Members like to say!



I would 100% recommend this restaurant, more so for the atmosphere and theming (although I am left dreaming about the amazing deserts). If your celebrating a special occasion you may also be permitted to try “The Grey Stuff”, it really is delicious.

1900 Park Fare - Character Breakfast at the Grand Floridian



A character breakfast was something I wanted to do while being here, so what could be more appropriate than a British themed affair. The Grand Floridian breakfast plays host to classic characters such as Mary Poppins, Pooh, Tigger, Alice and the Mad Hatter. They work their way around the room taking pictures, signing autographs and playfully interacting with guests.



The breakfast isn’t cheap at $25 a head (plus tip) but the food is actually delicious! It’s a buffet style with many choices for all dietary requirements. We also got tea! English breakfast tea! Major bonus points there.



I would 100% recommend doing a character breakfast in Disney, if only for the experience. I’d love to do another one before I leave next week (boo!) but time off and everyone having money is a thing. Ah well. Breakfast is my favourite meal of the day so this was perfection.
