We are going to the magic kingdom in March. Is there any easy way to get reservations for Be Our Guest. I've been trying for over a month. Someone suggested trying the day of. If I already made reserv. for an other place would it be hard to cancel.

Susan, in only a few months you will be sailing with pirates, flying with Peter Pan above London, and eating Mickey ice cream bars!
The popularity of Be Our Guest is no surprise. Who wouldn't want the chance to dine in the stunningly well themed Beast's Castle on French inspired cuisine? While there is no secret to snagging a reservation, being persistent and flexible can reap rewards. This summer I was able to book a table only four months out by accepting a late seating.
You may find spots opening up the week of your Magic Kingdom visit. Cancelations do occur as guests void their reservations to avoid no show fees. All table service restaurant bookings need to be canceled a day in advance or ten dollars per person will be charged to the credit card used to hold the reservation. If you cancel a booking the day of your seating be prepared to pay this fee.
Consider lunch at the Master's home; no reservations are needed! The midday meal offers fabulous French food, real china and cutlery, servers delivering food to your table, and the opportunity to enjoy the dramatic castle dining rooms. The quick service queue even offers an experience evening dinners miss- the chance to hear a chat among knights' suits of armor.
