It was a busy day at the Disney World reservation center Monday, the first day that anxious future guests could make dinner reservations for the Be Our Guest restaurant, the Magic Kingdom eatery inspired by scenes from the animated film "Beauty and the Beast."
The restaurant, located within the Fantasyland expansion, will open to the public on Nov. 19 with "quick and casual" service at lunch (no reservations required) and table service for dinner.
Here's a collection of Twitter posts related to trying to be Disney's guest. Results were … mixed.
