Considering having breakfast at Be Our Guest in the Magic Kingdom? Read this review by my friend Tabitha:
We were able to have breakfast at the castle in the Magic Kingdom. No, not that castle. The other castle. We had Breakfast at Be Out Guest inside the Beast’s castle in Fantasyland.
Being a life-long fan of Beauty and the Beast – this was fabulous! Although I will point out that the Beast does NOT receive guests in the castle at breakfast. This is JUST a meal.
Also, it’s a Quick-Service Credit if you’re on the Disney Dining Plan (instead of Table Service like dinner). You can also pre-order breakfast as much as a few days ahead of time (I would suggest doing this). Breakfast guest may seat themselves when they arrive. You can choose the main dining room, the Rose Gallery or The West Wing. The main dining room was crowded and seem loud and chaotic so we sat in the Rose Gallery. In hindsight, I wish we had sat in the main dining room (it looks like the ballroom from the end of the movie). If you prefer quiet, then sit in the Rose Gallery. (The West Wing is the Beast’s room from the movie – the dark room with the slashed curtains and the Enchanted Rose on the table by the window. More on this room in the dinner review.)
I’m going to start with The Grey Stuff because it is delicious. You don’t have to ask the dishes because I’m telling you it is. At breakfast it is NOT included with your meal but I forked over the $4.99 x 3 so we could have some. At breakfast it is called The Master’s Cupcake and it is The Grey Stuff served on top of a chocolate sponge cake (which is yummy) and topped with a piece of dark chocolate. For what it’s worth, I like the The Grey Stuff at breakfast (on the sponge cake) better than the dessert they put it on at dinner. (More on that in the dinner review also).
Ok, so on to breakfast…
Feast A La Gaston – $24
Scrambled Eggs, Herb-Roasted Potatoes, Apple Smoked Bacon, and Chicken Sausage served with Fresh Fruit and a selection of pastries.
Hubs had the Feast A La Gaston. He said it was very good. And it is a decent sized serving of food. Two pieces of bacon, two pieces of chicken sausage, eggs and potatoes (some are hidden by the fruit cup.)
Vegetable Quiche – $24
Mushroom, Zucchini, Bell Pepper, Onion and Chive Quiche served with Fresh Fruit and a selection of pastries
I had the Vegetable Quiche and it is really, really good. But it is also very small. I was slightly disappointed in the size. Especially after seeing all the food on Hubs’ plate for the same price. Also, I don’t like cantaloupe or honeydew so for my “fresh fruit”, I ate one strawberry. More than one strawberry and maybe some red grapes would be a nice addition to the fresh fruit.
The “selection of pastries” is one plate per table. I feel like the menu is misleading about that since it says on each menu item “a selection of pastries”. We had three meals (counting the kid’s meal below) and you can see in the picture above our plate of pastries. I took a bite of a few of them. They were mostly ok but nothing I was overly impressed with. Hubs ate one bite of one but the rest went uneaten.
Kid’s Meal French Toast – $14
Brioche Bread served with Fresh Fruit and a selection of pastries
So my son loved his breakfast and ate every bite of his French Toast. But again for $14 I would’ve expect a little more than ONE piece of bread cut in fourths. He also doesn’t like melon so his fruit went uneaten. Grapes for the kiddos would be nice.
The food tasted wonderful but the portions are small so I don’t feel like this is the best value. Unless you get the Feast A La Gaston – that is the only meal I saw that is worth the cost – or if you just really like filling up on pastries at breakfast. Most of ours went untouched.
