    When visiting MK with my three young daughters, do you suggest Be our Guest for lunch or dinner? We are traveling on a budget but would like a great experience. Also, what is the expected opening date mine train in fantasyland? Thanks

    Bonjour Jennifer!

    Thanks for visiting the Disney Parks Moms Panel with your question!  We're glad you're here!  The enchanting Be Our Guest Restaurant is a beautiful dining location and my new favorite "lunch spot" when visiting Magic Kingdom Park!  I have personally dined inside Beast's castle twice now and thoroughly enjoyed both experiences!  Be Our Guest Restaurant is unique in that it is a quick-service location at lunch and a more formal "sit-down" restaurant at dinner. I honestly believe your three little princesses will be very pleased with the experience at lunch, especially if you are trying to stay on a budget. During lunch hours, guests order from a touch-screen terminal and their delicious French-inspired dishes are magically delivered to the table on real china. Guests may also dine in one of three themed rooms, my personal favorite being the mysterious West Wing. Advanced Dining Reservations are not accepted for lunch. 

    The highly anticipated new Seven Dwarfs Mine Train is scheduled to open in 2014. Unfortunately, a specific opening date has not been officially announced at this time. I recommend checking the Disney Parks Blog periodically in the coming months for any new information regarding this exciting new attraction coming to New Fantasyland. 

    During your upcoming trip, don't miss Princess Fairytale Hall, which recently opened at Magic Kingdom Park. Your daughters will love getting to meet Cinderella, Rapunzel, and a visiting Princess friend in this beautiful new Character Greeting location. Please know that Characters are subject to change. 

    I hope this information is helpful!  Please don't hesitate to visit me again with any additional questions. Best wishes for a magical trip, Jennifer!

    Bon Appétit,
