THANK YOU for all your posts from WDW this past week!! each day I go back and click onto your user name to see what you have posted and it just makes me even more excited for my trip next week and I know that its really been extremely informative for those whom have never been to see so much of the parks and the different things that they have to offer... - Dave  13924.0 #9 10:35PM

There seems to be a constant MWer there since we went in Jan. Almost every week there is someone there. LaBelleParis, CobbPR, and a couple others. So great to see all these pictures. Brings back memories. - DLKenCA  3769.5 #50 11:08PM

DLKenLumboCA: I think that's the way it should be, with a MWer there at least every other week. In that way, we can keep in touch with what's going on at WDW.... - LaBelleParis  1403.4 #157 12:00AM
It's been great to see all of your pictures, particularly ones that aren't edited and naturally give all of us a real perspective of being at at WDW. Thank you for sharing QC. Dave, looking forward to all of your posts as well!! 😎 - apesandmonkeys  6523.5 #25 11:12AM
Was that just for the stuff in the photos or was there more food for that price? - HasAnyoneSeenMyGlassSlipper  732.0 #331 10:29PM
Technically more food. To my understanding, it's a three course meal for all. So we had two adults, one child & that was our price! Should've specified--sorry!   - GrimGrinningAmanda  666.9 #363 10:32PM
Okay. That's not terrible then. - HasAnyoneSeenMyGlassSlipper  732.0 #331 10:34PM

#WDW A heads up for those planning trips to WDW in the future...we were on the dining plan where we had one snack, one quick service & one table service meal a day. Considering we each feel like we gained 50 pounds from this trip, we went in to our last day thinking we had used our credits wisely. Little did we know we still had 18 quick service credits left! After speaking with a CM at MK on our   More...

I'm really debating the dining plan! I have reservations at Be Our Guest and Cinderella's Royal Table but it's going to be 800 for the week I am there!!If I pay for these dinners out of pocket, I might as well have had the dining plan! - melodyinc  28.6 #6756 5:54PM
Exactly.  If you do any character meals or fine dining, even if you "waste" some of the meals, you still come out ahead.  Plus you can make payments on the dining plan.  We had a few meals left over and were able to get boxed lunches to take on the plane and treats to give to the kids (Rice Krispies and cookies, mostly).   - bluefairy  643.8 #372 10:53PM
How are you going to get the water past   - msdizmaui  1119.1 #203 6:02PM
Can you purchase a dining plan separately or does it have to be part of a vacation package? We're going to use our premier passes when we go so we just need the hotel and dining plan. - DisneyLuvinMama  380.8 #693 6:14PM
Yes, as long as you are staying on property, you should be able to add dining. - bluefairy  643.8 #372 10:54PM

#WDW Be Our Guest!

Sigh...7am the day we can make reservations and couldn't get in.  - ythdudette  1593.5 #137 4:22PM
If you google "reservation for Be Our Guest" a website will pop up that can help make reservations for lunch (or so I'm told from the FL MW!) We didn't have reservations either...we just decided to wait about 10 minutes for lunch instead! 😊 - GrimGrinningAmanda  666.9 #363 4:43PM
According to under cover tourist,  us CA residents have to get on the computer at 3am on reservation day cause the system opens at 6am east coast time. - GoofyMom77  1162.9 #194 4:49PM
We waited about an hour. Ask them when they start taking walk ins. I think you have to be there about 3:45. They gave us a 90 minute window we had to wait on the bridge. But we got in for dinner. - DLKenCA  3769.5 #50 4:50PM
Thanks for the hints. He is a CM at DHS. We'll do walk up if need be. I care more about seeing it than the food!  - ythdudette  1593.5 #137 5:18PM

I did!! 😊 Loved it! - GrimGrinningAmanda  666.9 #363 9:57PM
I stared at the ceiling but didn't see it...what I did notice were the cherub's faces were of real babies vs cherub faces. It was strange. Assuming they were probably some of the creator's babies faces. Really pretty place.   - verofern  141.7 #3038 1:03AM
That was my favorite room. We sat by the large windows, because we wanted to see it snow outside...pretty good effect :) - LaBelleParis  1403.4 #157 2:05PM

@SIC, yes!  - GrimGrinningAmanda  666.9 #363 3:07PM

For lunch only, I believe. - PrincessTiannaBeignet  397.7 #660 3:14PM
It's a counter service for lunch. Unless I'm mistaken you can eat in the ball room or rose room for lunch.  The lunch is when you order before you sit down.  Dinner is table service, so you'd sit down and someone would come take your order.  Dinner dining room options are the ball room and the west wing. - GoofyMom77  1162.9 #194 3:31PM
West Wing is open for lunch, or at least it was when I went last year. - CM_Shadowgamer  2686.8 #66 4:31PM
There are multiple dining rooms and open seating for lunch.   - bluefairy  643.8 #372 5:27PM
So is that considered quick service or table service then for the dining plan?  - Sweet_Irish_Cream  4410.2 #43 10:54PM
Sweet_Irish_Cream it's quick service for lunch and table service for dinner. You get to meet Beast at dinner only. - LilSterner  5828.4 #27 11:00PM
So you don't need to make a reservation for lunch? Can you meet beast anywhere else? Do they have "the gray stuff" at lunch?  - Sweet_Irish_Cream  4410.2 #43 8:05AM

I remember when this first opened, I thought I would never go. In January, I planned it and was able to eat dinner twice there! So plan it. I live in Los Angeles. It will be a very nice goal to look forward to... I also enjoyed enchanted tales with Belle. There's a mirror that turns into a doorway. Really amazing.  - verofern  141.7 #3038 12:38AM

Of course we said yes, so he walked us back & plopped us right in row 1! We'll certainly be stopping by City Hall (if that's what it's called here!) to let them know!

#WDW CMs passed out umbrellas to guests waiting in line for Be Our Guest! It's really, really hot so the umbrella's are much appreciated! β˜€οΈ

That's much different from my experience. When we were there it was 31 degrees and with wind chill it was probably about 2 degrees. People were standing outside (like us) in freezing wind. Finally they figured out people on the waiting list should be brought in to wait so they don't freeze to death. Of course it was right after we got let in to eat. They were giving out free hot chocolate and hot cider though. That helped. - DLKenCA  3769.5 #50 11:07AM
