Be Our Guest is arguably the most popular addition of Magic Kingdom’s Fantasyland expansion. An Advance Dining Reservation (ADR) for dinner at Be Our Guest is still one of the most coveted and hard to get reservations in all of Disney World.
The popularity of the restaurant also extended to its quick service lunch, which proved to be a bit of a problem. Lengthy lines would regularly stretch all the way across the bridge to Be Our Guest, forcing Disney to hand out umbrellas and water to guests in line to provide some relief from the hot Orlando sun. Because nothing quite ruins your appetite like passing out of heat exhaustion. Disney experimented with a Fastpass system for Be Our Guest for the past few months in order to alleviate those lengthy lines. Speaking from our last two times getting lunch at Be Our Guest, the Fastpass experience didn’t completely solve the line situation and somewhat detracted from one of the best counter service meals at Disney World.

Thankfully, Disney is changing things up yet again. Guests will now be able to make ADRs for Be Our Guest’s lunch, which is served daily from 10:30 am – 2:30 pm. Like other ADRs, reservations can be made 180 days in advance. Unlike other ADRs, guests can actually pre-order their meal 30 days in advance. The meal pre-order can be placed all the way up until 5 minutes before the reservation.
Lunch is still a quick service meal, and will accept Quick Service Dining Credits.
Guests will be able to start making reservations on February 25, 2015 via DisneyWorld.com or the MyDisneyExperience app.
