Mnsshp and BoG ..too much?

We lucked out (I think!) and got dinner reservations at Be Our Guest during MNNSHP. We haven’t done either before, although we have done lunch at BoG. Are we going to be pressed for time to see all of the special events for MNSSHP? Our dinner reservation is for 6:35.
We are 4 adults now, and we can move along fairly quickly, although DD does still love the characters!
Thanks!

I personally wouldn't want a meal to cut into my party time. I would keep trying for an earlier ADR. BOG is a full table service meal for dinner so I would expect to be there at least an hour.

Are you aware that BOG dinner changes to a 3-course prix fixe menu in a little over a month? Mentioning that in case you booked based on what you’ve heard about it or what’s on the current menu. If using dining plan credits, it’ll be 2 rather than the current 1.

Three courses could easily take well over an hour. That wouldn’t necessarily bother us because we’ve done CRT as party night dinner and weren’t trying to pack as much fun as possible into that single night. If your aim is to see and do with lots of trick or treating, you may want to try for a 4:00-5:00 ADR or forget a sitdown meal and grab some QS instead.

Btw, the MNSSHP parade is fabulous. Don’t miss that!

" If using dining plan credits, it’ll be 2 rather than the current 1."

To add to this my nephew had dinner at BOG last Wednesday (5/31/18) on the dining plan and was charged 2 credits. To my surprise the disney site says the following:


Dining Plans Accepted at Be Our Guest Restaurant

Dining Plan Type 2018 Entitlements Required
Breakfast Lunch Dinner
Disney Quick-Service Dining Plan 1 1 N/A
Disney Dining Plan 1 1 2
Disney Deluxe Dining Plan 1 1 2

That IS a surprise since the various unofficial blogs said the changeover wasn’t to occur until July 27.

I noticed the official announcement said only “Coming this summer,” suitably vague so that after Memorial Day qualifies as summer, I suppose.

We're doing the party for the first time this year as well and I don't even want to take the time for a CS meal but we will at 4 pm when we can enter the park. From what I'm seeing/reading with limited party time you really have to decide what it is you want to see and do. Just seeing one parade, one Sanderson sisters show and the fireworks with waiting I'm estimating to take up at least half of the party. Some of the meet and greets I would want (7 Dwarfs) I'm going to skip as again, I've heard the lines can get up to 3 hours before the party even starts at 7.

Thought the same thing and was surprised that WDW was charging 2 credits for the same experience that had been 1. That is why I wanted to clarify it for whomever was interested.

Huh, so it’s currently 2cr for the old menu?

That is really not right if your nephew wasn’t notified about the credit change before arriving.

As carefully as we plan how we’ll use our credits, we’d be left short 1 credit each and would not be happy if Disney did it to us unannounced rather than it being our mistake.

That is exactly what happened to them - they were one credit short.
