When breakfast reservations were announced at Be Our Guest in the Magic Kingdom, I was a bit unsure on if I wanted to go. A prix fixe breakfast for $20, or spending that money on the buffet at The Wave. Of course, I had to go with something new for the blog.
A lot of people are complaining about the price. With how popular this restaurant is, it seems rather fair to me. Between the pastries, entree, and beverage, an a la carte price would be similar. I spent almost as much the previous day on lunch at Min & Bill’s, and that place certainly does not have the same ambiance.
I was able to get a reservation for myself, but a table for two was not an option, so Matt wasn’t able to join me. There were still plenty of tables at the time of my reservation. Also note that arriving early for your reservation will not grant you early access. The CM cannot check you in until your time hits. All entrees come with an assortment of pastries, including a Cinnamon Roll, Mini Muffins, a Chocolate Croissant and a plain Croissant. I’m not sure if they bring out a full tray per guest, as I neglected to scope out other tables.
Since I wasn’t interested in the pastries, I was able to get a to-go box at the end of my meal and brought them home for Matt. These were pretty standard in terms of Disney pastries.
For my entree, I ordered the Open-Face Bacon and Egg Sandwich, which features Poached Eggs, Applewood Bacon, and Brie Cheese on a Toasted Baguette. It is served with fresh Fruit, consisting of grapes, strawberry, canteloupe, honeydew, and I think there was pineapple.
At first, I wanted to order the Assorted Cured Meats and Cheese, but the abundance of ham turned me off. Typically, I’m not a fan of poached eggs, but they were nicely done here and added a nice creaminess to the toasted bread.
The bacon was my favorite part here, as it wasn’t that flimsy, transparent bacon you find at most Disney restaurants. Of the entree options for adults, I think this dish probably offers the most bang for your buck.
For those that just want the opportunity to dine at Be Our Guest, I’m glad they are offering a breakfast option, even if it is prix fixe. There just seems to be such a lack of breakfast food outside of pastries in the parks in general, and for those who don’t want a character meal/buffet, it’s a good – and less expensive – option. Do I feel the need to go back for breakfast? Not necessarily. What I ordered was very good, but I’m not sure I’d consider it a must-have. Still, if Matt wants to go in the future, I’d be happy to revisit.
Have you been able to visit Be Our Guest for breakfast? Do you think you will if you can get a reservation?
