The grand opening of Disney World's Fantasyland expansion is set for Dec. 6, but park guests can begin making reservations for the new Be Our Guest restaurant starting today (Aug. 20).

The Beauty and the Beast-themed restaurant opens Nov. 19, the same day that previews begin for the expanded area.

Be Our Guest will have counter service during the day, but will switch over to table service in the evening.

The dinner menu will include upscale offerings, such as rotisserie rock hen, grilled strip steak, sauteed shrimp and scallops, and ratatouille confit byaldi.

Reservations are being accepted for Nov. 19 through Feb. 16 (180-day maximum advanced reservation).

Right now, reservations can be made by calling the Walt Disney World Dining Line at 407-WDW-DINE (407-939-3463).

Online reservations begin on Aug. 22 at the Walt Disney World Website.
