The internet was all abuzz this weekend on why Disney has pulled dinner reservations for Be Our Guest in July. There are some who were able to make their Advanced Dining Reservations for early July. But, after confirming with Disney, all Be Our Guest dinner reservations are unavailable after July 1, 2018, at this time.
I do not have the official reason why Guests are having trouble finding dinner reservations for Be Our Guest, but I do have some ideas.
One of the popular theories that I have seen floating around is that Be Our Guest might be re-classified as a signature dining restaurant. This would mean that it would count as two table service credits if you have a Dining Plan. Currently, the only other signature option at the Magic Kingdom is Cinderella’s Royal Table. If you have dined at Be Our Guest for dinner in the past, you know the Beast is there. Maybe, if it became a signature option, they would add Belle too?
Another idea is that Be Our Guest might be closing for renovations. Some online reports indicated that the renovations will last unitl December. This might sound unlikely as reservations for breakfast and lunch are still available. (I was able to make a lunch reservation for my client who is traveling in July this week with no problems.) However, there has been chatter of expanding the kitchen at Be Our Guest. It is possible that they would just work on the renovations in the evening so Guests could enjoy breakfast and lunch at Be Our Guest during the day. Dinner hours for Be Our Guest are still listed on the official Disney World website.
Another thing to keep in mind is that Be Our Guest recently switched over to paper products for breakfast and lunch. This might play into the refurbishment theory.
Finally, another thought is that Disney will just release Be Our Guest dinner reservations later on. It is not uncommon for Disney to release additional dining reservations inside of a Guest’s 180-day arrival window. (It is also common for FastPasses to be released inside a Guest’s 60-day arrival window!)
Keep following along as if/when we receive official word from Disney, we will be sure to sure to pass it along! There is still no word on what will become of the reservations that were able to made for dinner already in July but we have heard they will be honored. We will bring that to you too if something changes!
