Happy Wednesday fellow Mouskateers!
Craig and I are just 6 days away from our Disney vacation! I am excited about the inspiration for new blog topics that will come, fulfilling blog topic ideas, and taking pictures for the blog that will happen next week! Today though I am happy to share with you a video that I ran across about one of Disney’s newest restaurants- Be Our Guest Restaurant. BOG is located in “New Fantasyland” in the Magic Kingdom. New Fantasyland is a MASSIVE expansion that started in the Magic Kingdom in 2011, and began opening in stages in 2013. The final piece of the New Fantasyland puzzle opened in June 2014- The Seven Dwarfs Mine Train, officially completing the expansion.
Be Our Guest is one of two restaurants in New Fantasy Land, both with a Beauty and the Beast theme. The first, Gaston’s Tavern is as it suggests a small tavern where you can grab a snack or a quick service meal. Be Our Guest is the much grander of the two. The unique part about Be Our Guest is that it is both a quick service restaurant and a table service restaurant. At lunch time (10:30-2:30) it serves as a quick service location, where you can grab a “Croque Monsieur on Millet Bread” (Grilled Sandwich of Carved Ham, Gruyere Cheese and Bechamel on Millet Bread with Pommes Frites) or Braised Pork – (Eight Hour Slow-cooked Pork with Mushrooms, Onions, Carrots and Bacon served with Mashed Potatoes and Green Beans Jardiniere). At Dinner (4:00-9:30) it becomes a table service restaurant serving up Herb-crusted Lamb Rack, Pan-seared Salmon on Leek Fondue, and Grilled Strip Steak. If you want to get reservations for dinner, plan on selecting the 180 days out with the Advanced Dining Reservations. Like I said, this is one of the hottest new restaurants on property.
Craig and I will be having a quick service lunch at BOG on the final day of our trip. We lucked out and scored some fastpasses for lunch, where we were able to preorder our meal and come at a reserved time for lunch. I am excited to experience it and to take photos of the ornate detailing that went into this restaurant.
