{travel guide} A Magical Birthday Dinner at Magic Kingdom's Be Our Guest

Yesterday I posted about Mickey's Not So Scary Halloween Party and what I wore. Today it's all about the birthday dinner we enjoyed before the party started! My friend Kristen and I make a point to go to Be Our Guest for lunch or breakfast any time we go to Disney. We have been wanting to go for dinner since it opened but it's pretty hard to get a reservation.

A couple months before our trip I was able to snag a reservation during Mickey's Not So Scary Halloween Party since you need to have party tickets to make reservations then. But as we got closer to the trip I kept checking to see if any opened before the party because we didn't want to waste valuable trick-or-treat time with dinner. Luckily a couple days before we left someone cancelled a reservation earlier in the evening so we were able to swap our first one.

Over the Summer Disney World introduced an a la carte menu for dinner so you get an appetizer, entree and dessert all for one price. Everyone gets the same dessert - a lime and raspberry french macaron, white chocolate Chip cup filled with "The Grey Stuff" and a chocolate cherry truffle. For my appetizer and entree I chose Escargot and Poulet Rouge Chicken with Faro Wheat Risotto, Seasonal Vegetables, Crisp Pancetta, and Garlic Butter Sauce. Kristen opted for the Mixed Field Greens and Center-cut Filet Mignon.

I'm not a huge escargot fan, except for the garlic flavor and yummy breadcrumbs, but I wanted something different than a salad so I braved the texture of snail. The chicken and faro were very tasty, I would definitely have them again! I always enjoy The Grey Stuff so I'm glad it was included with dessert.

Kristen also surprised me with a Mickey Mouse Birthday Cake at the end of our meal! Sadly we couldn't finish it so we had to take it in a to-go container and we had a bit of a crushing/amusing incident and were left with a blob of cake. Don't worry I still ate some in our hotel later in the week. Our waitress even brought a card signed by Belle and The Beast, super cute!

After our meal we were able to take a photo with The Beast before heading out for the party! This is the only you are able to interact with The Beast in the parks. He can be see in parades and a Beauty and the Beast show at Hollywood Studios.

While the meal is not cheap ($60 for adults,) it's a really fun experience and I think if you're a Beauty and the Beast fan you should do it at least once. Now that I've done it I can go back to spending $9 on my Grilled Shrimp lunch from the Kids menu or French Toast at breakfast! And I'll always spend the $5 on The Master's Cupcake (which has The Grey Stuff on it.)
