Be Our Guest restaurant continues to get rave reviews

Walt Disney World's newest dining experience officially opened its doors for soft openings on Monday and reviews seem to be very positive. Set inside the castle from "Beauty and the Beast," the Be Our Guest Restaurant functions as a counter service option during lunch and a table service option during dinner. For dinner, guests dine in either the ballroom or the West Wing (the third room is closed during the evening meal). The ballroom looks nearly identical to the one from the animated film complete with snow falling outside the floor-to-ceiling windows. Not only is the Magic Kingdom location new, but the restaurant offers a menu much different than any other Magic Kingdom location. In addition, while it's doubtful it will continue in the long run, the Beast himself has been making appearances during dinner, even stopping to take pictures with guests. The meal is not advertised as a character dining experience, so the Beast's presence is something special that may just be for opening week.
