Wow! The food looks amazing. Clearly Disney hit the mark with this venue. I hope the company's renewed and reinvigorated commitment to food excellence will bleed over into the rest of the Magic Kingdom restaurants as well!

The dinner menu looks more impressive; it has items not found at lunch like ratatouille.

I ate lunch there yesterday and it was great! I had the grilled steak sandwich which was delicious! I toured the whole restaurant and might look into eating dinner, though it isn't cheap..

Thats good!

MK is in need of a good resturant. I always thought MK was the weakest food wise of any of the WDW parks.

Great article Robert! We have dinner reservations in January and cannot wait! The ambiance in Be Our Guest is quite stunning from the Passholder preview tour we took. Looking forward to the food!

Nice reviews of the new restaurant's ordering system and food. But you left something out. From the song in the "Beauty and the Beast" film, we're invited to "try the gray stuff." So, did you?

The prices seem reasonable for a theme park, but it adds up so the final check will be much higher. The food looks terrific. It is definitely quality food.

Brian, there doesn't appear to be any "grey stuff" at lunch. Maybe the grey stuff has booze in it? ;^)

I've heard you have to ask for the grey stuff; it's not on the menu, it's sort of an inside secret. It's not pate, like in the movie- it's some kind of marscapone dessert dish here...

KJ is correct: "The Grey Stuff" is not on the menu. But if you ask for it, you'll get it for free. Other web sites (, for example) have described it as a cookies-and-cream flavored mousse and, like the song says, it really is delicious.

Actually, really the grey stuff is only brought out for guest celebrating something. As a Castmember speaking on behalf of other Castmembers, don't pester, bug or demand the grey stuff, and don't argue that you read online somewhere that you get it if you ask for it.
