It’s day 3, and we’re going to the Magic Kingdom. Unlike our easy day at Hollywood Studios, the Magic Kingdom was going to be longer and a lot more walking.
We still didn’t get up early, and arrived at the park around 10:00 am. Our first FastPass was for it’s a small world, before our lunch reservations at Be Our Guest.
Stephen was amazed at how similar the Magic Kingdom was compared to Disneyland, yet a bit different. He was also surprised that their Cinderella Castle was a lot bigger than Sleeping Beauty’s Castle.
The Fantasyland here is more congested and the attractions blend in together, so it’s easy to walk past it’s a small world, and not even notice. The queue for the attraction is indoors and the ride is shorter with less figurines.
The FastPass was timed just right, as we went straight to Be Our Guest (BOG) for lunch. Dinner at BOG is normally 2 dining credits but for lunch, it’s considered a counter service meal. Reservations are still required or highly recommended.
The inside of the restaurant is decorated like the Beauty and the Beast castle. The main dining room is the ballroom, another room has the painting of the Beast, along with the enchanted rose, and a third room has Belle and the Beast dancing in the center of the room.
Lunch: Coq au Vin with Sangria for me, and a Croque Monsieur with a Kronenbourg 1664 for Stephen.
We used our snack points for The Master’s Cupcake with Lumière’s special “Grey Stuff.” As the song said: it’s delicious!
Overall the food is just ok. If you’re a fan of Beauty and the Beast, it’s worth checking out. Prices aren’t bad for lunch, and it’s even better if you have a dining plan.
