Walt Disney World’s Be Our Guest Restaurant Rumored to Change to Disposable Dishes at Lunch

Be Our Guest Restaurant is one of the most popular restaurants at Walt Disney World.  The location serves breakfast, lunch and dinner services, which all typically book up almost instantly.  The lunch service is a quick service meal where guests can enjoy the benefit of a reservation like a table service restaurant.  Guests also have the opportunity to pre-order their meal before they arrive so that they can simply check in and wait for their food to be ready.  The restaurant typically serves the food on real china with real utensils instead of the disposable products that quick service locations use.  It appears that some guests have reported that Disney is testing out switching to the disposable dishes and they have been recently used during lunch service.

We don’t have a confirmation from Disney as to whether or not this change is permanent or if it is a temporary change.  We have heard that it would start out as a test for a period of time and then a decision will be made after that. We also don’t have confirmation on the reason for the change, but we can assume that it makes the lunch service easier since there aren’t dishes to deal with.

Who out there has been to Be Our Guest since they have been using the disposable dishes at lunch?  What would you all think of this change if it were to be permanent?

About Christy Caby

I am a diehard Disney fanatic! I fell in love with all things Disney from an early age and that only increased once I first visited Walt Disney World! It led me to complete a yearlong Disney College Program working at merchandise locations within Disney’s Hollywood Studios (Disney-MGM Studios at that time) and I worked for Disney Parks & Resorts Technology in Project/Program Management. Now I get to write about Disney and help others plan their magical vacations! Disney holds a special place in the hearts of my entire family as my husband proposed there, we honeymooned there, took trips while pregnant with each of my boys and have visited with them many, many times from 8 weeks old through now. One of my favorite memories from each trip is always the look on my kids’ faces the first time they see the castle. I’d love to help you plan your magical vacation!
