I love Be Our Guest restaurant at the Magic Kingdom, I think it’s one of the best themed places on property. It really does make you feel like you’re right inside the movie and that at any moment, Belle and the Beast could take a twirl right there in the ballroom.
But what about the food? It is a restaurant after all…
I have done dinner and lunch many times and always enjoyed the food, today was my second time doing breakfast and I have to say, I was very underwhelmed.
We were handed our menu outside and we debated what we would order. My sister and I both decided that we were fairly hungry and got the same thing – the Feast a la Gaston. It was scrambled eggs, bacon, chicken sausage, roasted potatoes and fresh fruit. A similar offering to what I had at the Contempo Café the day before. It came with a drink, but to my surprise the cast member said they did not offer bottled water – so we settled on a milk and a hot tea. (The menu online says they have water – but this cast member said they didn’t).
The total cost was $51.12 USD for the two of us. We were okay with that, we knew it was going to be a good breakfast so it was worth the splurge.
We took our seats in the dining room and waited for our breakfast to arrive. Thanks to our Magic Bands – the cast member would find
us wherever we sat and bring our meals. There are 3 distinct dining rooms to choose from, the Grand Ballroom, the West Wing and the Castle Gallery. We have eaten in the first two multiple times so we choose the Castle Gallery for breakfast.
When our meal arrived, we were a little ‘underwhelmed’ by the presentation. It was a rather large plate for the food that was on it. The eggs were well cooked (which is good since I don’t like runny eggs), but the bacon was a little
lightly done for my liking. I have never had chicken sausage before – and I can safely say I won’t again, I really didn’t care for that. The potatoes were potatoes – nothing spectacular, but okay.
I like pastries generally, but this pastry dish didn’t blow me away. There was a croissant, apple danish, a couple of mini muffins and a chocolate croissant. We tasted each one for research purposes of course, but definitely weren’t fighting over them.
At the end of our breakfast we both agreed – we wouldn’t be doing breakfast again. Maybe the food at lunch and dinner is so good that our expectations were too high? Don’t get me wrong, we love the atmosphere of dining at Be Our Guest and ANY meal is a good opportunity to see inside this incredible theming in the Magic Kingdom. If you were going for the food, I would recommend lunch or dinner and skip breakfast reservation.
