More Fantasyland and Downtown Disney news! First, starting at noon, August 20, 2012, WDW guests will be able to make dining reservations for Be Our Guest, the new restaurant in the new Fantasyland (first available seating: November 19, 2012).

Here are the lunch and dinner details, from the official Walt Disney World Parks blog:
Lunch is quick and casual, with guest-activated terminals that make ordering a snap (there also will be traditional cashiers for cash orders and special dietary requests). You order, take a seat and lunch is delivered to your table – on china, not paper. Dinner is table service. You can find the lunch and dinner menus here.

Cuisine is French-inspired to match the hit animated film’s theme, with three themed dining rooms: the mysterious West Wing with the “enchanted rose”; the Rose Gallery with twirling, larger-than-life figures of Belle and Beast; and the elegant Ballroom with domed ceiling, twinkling chandeliers and glimpses of softly falling snow outside.
Call 407-WDW-Dine for more information or to make your reservations. Be Our Guest will be part of the Disney Dining Plan (Lunch: one quick-service entitlement; Dinner: one table-service restaurant entitlement).

Downtown Disney made an announcement this week too -- a brand-new "augmented reality" attraction:

The attraction opens September 1, 2012 and will be located next door to Bongo's Cuban Cafe. Guests will be able to virtually interact with Phineas, Ferb, Dr. Doof, and Agent P via 20 different settings (including dancing the Platypus Walk). The attraction is free, so expect long lines in the initial weeks of opening and during the holiday season.
