French Sweet Treats at Be Our Guest

If your normal response to “Can I interest you in dessert?” after a meal is to throw your hands up in defeat and utter “no thanks. I couldn’t eat another bite,” you may be changing your mind when you see what’s on the menu at the new “Beauty and the Beast” – inspired restaurant Be Our Guest at the Fantasyland expansion in Walt Disney World’s ® Magic Kingdom ®.

For the past three years, Walt Disney World ® chefs have poured countless hours and countless butter, sugar and chocolate into their French dessert recipes to create the perfect French sweet treats to sweep Be Our Guest guests off their feet. And after sampling some of these we have to say, they have succeeded!

After letting your taste buds explore France with such exquisite lunch and dinner options as Thyme-scented Pork Rack Chop, Rotisserie Cornish Hen, Pan-Seared Salmon on Leek Fondue, Grilled Strip Steak and more, indulge in the decadence of France with one of Be Our Guests Restaurant’s mouth-watering desserts. And if you think you couldn’t eat another bite after your delicious meal, wait until you see the dessert menu.

Satisfy your sweet tooth with a strawberry cream cheese cupcake, vanilla sponge cake, strawberry mousse filling and cream cheese icing; triple, chocolate cupcake, chocolate sponge cake, chocolate mousse filing and chocolate ganache; lemon meringue cupcake, vanilla sponge cake, lemon custard filing and flamed meringue icing; chocolate cream puff filled with chocolate mousse topped with whipped cream; passion fruit cream puff filled with passion fruit mousse topped with whipped cream or the lemon-raspberry cream puff filled with lemon custard.

Say yes to the dessert at Be Our Guest Restaurant and give your taste buds the French sweet treat they’ve been waiting for. The Fantasyland expansion and Be Our Guest Restaurant officially open Dec. 6. To be a part of the celebration, look for discounted tickets right here on Orlando Fun Tickets.
