  • How sad! I arrive in Orlando on Dec. 19 and leave Dec. 30. I still have hopes of getting dinner … I bought the individual passport and passport for a day to December 21 for Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party. Did you enter the park alone with this special ticket on 21st and book another ticket for another day?

  • Déborah – Reservations are only for dinner slots, lunch will be counter service so while you’ll probably have to wait a LONG time, you can eat lunch there.

    Be Our Guest has been very hyped and people were waiting for months for them to open up the ADRs for it, since you started trying two days after they started taking reservations – and at that point the restaurant will have been open for barely a month – I’m not surprised you aren’t able to book a reservation, and its unlikely one will become available. Are your dates flexible? I’d search for every day within your trip and maybe you’ll get lucky and find a slot, but at this point the odds are not in your favor.

  • No more reservations for the day December 21 2012? I am trying since August 22 but the answer is always the same for the site: “We searched for Lunch/Dinner on 12/21/2012 and no times were available.” I am so upset at not being able to have lunch and dinner at Be Our Guest … =( I’ll get lunch or dinner without booking?

  • my family is very excited we will be at Disney Dec. 22- Jan.3 we made dinner reservation here on Aug.20 for Dec. 23 cant wait.

  • We always look forward to new dining options but especially dining at Magic Kingdom. Since it will be so popular I am also excited about the quick service there. We are excited about our trip in November, but even more now!!!
