During our first trip in February, though, the line for lunch was just too long and the kids were too little to wait. During our second trip, the kids were seven months older (a big difference in the preschool years!) and with planning and luck, we got in!
I got in line at about 10:40AM. The plan was for Tom to take the kids to ride something while I waited, but the cast member in charge of the line said if I got in before they got back, they would just have to go to the end of the line. We all stayed together and I’m glad we did, because we only waited outside for about 15 minutes.
It was hot and there were umbrellas being passed through the line to keep everyone from getting too much sun. The line moved fast, though, so we didn’t need one. The kids barely even got to play with their “waiting in line” toys. It was okay, though, because playing outside the Beast’s castle was fun, too.
Inside was pretty cool as well.
We got to place our order on a touch screen and were given a magic rose to take to our table so the server could find us.
It was time to choose a room in which to enjoy our meal. At first, we chose the ever popular West Wing.
It was amazingly decorated, which is probably why it was the most crowded dining room. I felt just like we were in the movie!
Our food was delivered very quickly, right to our table. The magic rose really works!

|Tom’s Carved Prime Chuck Roast Beef Sandwich|
|Strawberry Cheesecake Cupcake|
Everything looked delicious, but we barely took a bite before Scarlett decided the West Wing was too scary. The thunder and the darkness was making her nervous. So we picked up everything and moved over to the Ballroom.
Before we left, I took a peek in the Rose Gallery. So adorable!
What a wonderful place to eat lunch! It was just so fun to be immersed in Belle’s world. And on the dining plan, it only costs a Quick Service meal credit. Now that’s a deal.
