Be Our Guest ....Did you enjoy your meal?

We are considering trying to book BOG for lunch on our upcoming trip? If you have eaten lunch there, did you enjoy the food? I know that breakfast and lunch are really just quick service meals but the prices appear to be much higher that other QS places. The dinner menu didn't really appeal to us. Thanks.

The quick service lunch prices are not higher than other quick service restaurants. The food is decent. A little better options than most quick service - food is NOT fried chicken nuggets and hamburgers!! They also have self-serve drink machines, so you can get refills on most of the drink choices.

I agree with Haimia about food options and prices. The quality can vary unpleasantly, though, with cold food being the most often reported problem.

The French onion soup is pretty good, we thought, although nowhere near as good as that at Chefs de France. Haven’t ever had the potato-leek but have seen raves for it.

Really, as difficult as it can be to get an ADR for the place even at six months out, what may be a better option is to have a large, late breakfast or light lunch elsewhere and book BOG between 2:00-2:30, the last half hour lunch is served. That gets you in to wander about seeing the spectacular decor, what most people want to do, and ordering only drinks and desserts for less than $10 per person. The cupcakes are yummy and well worth doing that, IMO.

Lunch sandwiches were pretty good when I was there. Nothing special but did get you in the door so you could look around.

The Christmas decorations at BOG are delightful, btw. They put up Christmas trees, and it snows outside the window behind the rose.

We've eaten lunch at BoG several different trips now. It's a must do for us because as mentioned it's not burgers and fries and the sandwiches can be customized if you'd like something left off.

Also, if you do lunch, you can order your food ahead of time at the disneyworld website and then just check in for your reservation and go sit down. When we went, you could not order through the phone app. You had to order through the disneyworld website. But we were still able to use our phone to access disneyworld.com and complete the process. Made it much better than waiting in line to order after checking in.

We do like lunch there. It's a nice way to relax and eat a decent meal in a great theme. We love the pork w/veggies (can't remember what it's called) if it's still available. We usually get the French onion soup and the Pork to share and my DD and I find it plenty for us.

We’ve eaten one breakfast and two lunches at BOG, and we are in the “meh” category. The food options are different, yes, but they aren’t anything special. The real reason for eating there is to see inside the restaurant. Our breakfast was pretty cool, not especially cold, but definitely not overly warm. Our first lunch was our favorite. I think it was the novelty of eating there. The second lunch seemed hurried, and we found the main dining room (the ballroom) very hectic and noisy.

I’d say it’s worth trying once, but BOG quick service isn’t on our list of repeat places for the foreseeable future.

I agree. For us, it was a one and done.

. That was going to be my reply too . Breakfast and lunch were a 1 and done for us but I’d go back for dinner. That meal we all really enjoyed
