Among the plethora of awe-inspiring attractions at Walt Disney World, there is one experience that stands out for its ability to transport guests into a beloved Disney tale. Step into the enchanting realm of “Enchanted Tales with Belle,” where the iconic story of Beauty and the Beast comes to life in the most immersive and captivating way. Join me as I delve into the whimsical details and unforgettable moments of this enchanting attraction, where you’ll discover the true magic of Disney storytelling.
This attraction can be found at the Magic Kingdom in Fantasyland. Enchanted Tales with Belle is an interactive meet and greet. Enchanted Tales with Belle makes the story of Beauty and the Beast come alive in more ways than one.
The first place you are taken is to Maurice’s workshop. His tools and plans for inventions are scattered all over the place. A mirror is behind the bench and it is an enchanted mirror. Together you say “Take us back to the night Belle fell in love with the Beast”. The mirror magically grows and becomes a pathway into the Beast’s castle.
The room you walk into has the wardrobe and she moves. It is really neat to watch. Everyone prepares to help Belle tell the story. Children and some adults (because everyone is a kid at Disney!) are given parts to help re-enact the story. Everyone practices their parts and props are given to those who are participating. After a few minutes of practice, we are then invited to the library!
Lumière is in the library and welcomes everyone. He also is animated and is really awesome to watch.
Bell then comes out and the story begins. She tells the story and then acts it out with the children. They dance around the room and have lots of fun! At the end of the story, she takes pictures with all the participants and if time also with other guests who were in the audience.
Tips for Enjoying Enchanted Tales with Belle
Plan your Visit: If you are not utilizing Genie+, it is best to visit this attraction earlier in the day but please be aware this attraction opens a bit later than the park opening time. Alternatively, try to visit during the last 2 hours the park is open. This will give you a better chance of securing a spot in one of the interactive storytelling sessions and minimize your wait time. If you are using Genie+, this is a mid-importance attraction. It shouldn’t be your first few choices but don’t save it for last.
Dress Up: If you or your little ones have costumes or accessories inspired by Beauty and the Beast characters, wearing them can enhance the immersive experience. It’s a fun way to feel even more connected to the enchanting world of Belle and her friends.
Be Ready to Interact: “Disney Enchanted Tales with Belle” is an interactive experience, where audience members are invited to play various roles in the storytelling. Be prepared to participate, whether it’s acting out a scene or joining in on a musical number. Embrace the opportunity to become part of the magic!
