As soon as you enter the Be Our Guest restaurant, located in the new Fantasyland in the Magic Kingdom, and look to your right, you will see a medieval looking hallway lined with suits of armor and other medieval accoutrements – tapestries, chandeliers, deep woodwork, and glowing touch screens. Well, the touch screens aren’t exactly medieval, but more on them in a moment.
The suits of armor are interesting to look at, but also interesting to listen to. As you walk by, you will hear them sing, sneeze, snore, and make other noises – letting you know that someone is inside, watching over the castle. Or sleeping on the job.
Back to the touch screens near the suits of armor. They currently are displaying old-fashioned looking sheet music with the words to the song “Be Our Guest” in French. These touch screens will likely display the quick service lunch menu, which will make it easier to order when you arrive in the next area.
The menu is reported to include many unique items – definitely not the typical hamburgers, chicken fingers, and fries. The menu will be filled with items like tuna salad, quinoa salad, braised pork, grilled steak sandwich, and vegetable quiche. Deserts will include chocolate cupcake, lemon meringue cupcake, and a chocolate cream puff.
The ordering area is themed after the parlor from the movie, complete with a fireplace with simulated projection fire. You head to an ordering station to place your order. Most of these stations are set up to be self service, but there are also some that allow a Cast Member to take your order for you.
When you place your order, you will receive a locating device that looks like a rose. You will place it on your table, and then servers will deliver your food directly to your table.
