On December 5, 2012, the attraction opened. Since then, it has gathered many visitors. All ages are allowed and welcome at Enchanted Tales with Belle. The magic of the tale fills the environment and the enchantment is more than real, after all.
As it is a show aimed at the entire audience of the park, it is important to arrive early and guarantee a spot at the show. The queues are long, so if necessary, you can use the fastpass +.
Curious to know more? Come with us, then, to know a little about this adventure in the history of animation Beauty and the Beast.
The Enchanted Tales with Belle experience
Entering Belle and Maurice's hut/chalet – who is the princess' father –, first, you'll be able to settle in and enjoy the details. It can be accomplished by analyzing the decoration and every corner of the place.
The next step is Maurice's workshop. However, to enter the place, people are divided into small groups. That way, no rush!
From there, with the groups formed, it's time to visit Maurice's workshop, where you will be face to face with a mirror, this one totally enchanted. Yea! In turn, the object will be your gateway to living a little bit of the fairy tale for a day. Just say the magic words!
After stepping through the mirror, you'll marvel at the Beast's library and witness his incredible journey with Belle and since when they first met. Until it's time to get to know the wonderful Beast's castle.
Finding Madame Wardrobe – which is the enchanted closet – finally comes the interaction with the public. That's right!
As it is an interactive attraction, there is a selection of people who will participate in the show. There is no age limit! So everyone can volunteer to play the characters.
That way, it's time to find our dear Bela. The famous talking candlestick, the Lumière, will guide the movements, and when spectators are properly seated in the Beast's library, she enters the picture.
The attraction animatronics
I had to create a separate session to talk even if quickly about these animatronics.
First, animatronics are what we call the “robots” we see in parks and Disney attractions.
Disney has evolved more and more and we have seen more and more surreal and perfect animatronics, like the seven dwarfs on the roller coaster Seven Dwarfs Mine Train and the Anna and Elsa at Frozen Ever After(see image below).
Well, all this to say, that in this attraction of Beauty and the Beast, there is one of the animatronics that surprised me the most in all of Disney.
Lumiere, the romantic and French candlestick actively participates in the attraction the moment we interact with Belle, and when I saw it, my jaw dropped.
This animatronic moves, talks, interacts with people and it's surreal!
His movements, expressions and especially the movements of his arms which are extremely thin.
Disney actually managed to create something for this animatronic that actually looks like it's straight out of the movie!
We've already shown this attraction on our youtube channel, it's worth checking out.
Where is the attraction and more details about
The attraction is in the area Fantasyland and has a part only directed to the drawing. It's right next to the Be Our Guest Restaurant, to the left.
Check out the Magic Kingdom map below:
Due to the “new version” of the attraction, it is the only moment, within the entire day at the park, that it is possible to meet the character. It's like a new way of meeting and greeting, but this time it is possible to act together. Isn't it amazing?
In all, the presentation lasts around 20 to 25 minutes.
Therefore, select a time in the itinerary so that you can deal with the queues - which are beeeeem large, as it is a family attraction.
That way, you'll be able to enjoy the show without disturbing your day at the park.
Although it is not possible to participate in the reenactment, at the end of the show, you can join a queue to interact with the Princess.
As long as the time does not exceed what is allowed, people can take a selfie with Bela.
So it doesn't matter if you are going to participate directly in the attraction or not. The fact is that, even “watching from the cabin”, you will feel hooked and taken to a reality where happily ever afters exist and are incredible.
Who never wanted to live a fairy tale, right? It's more than special to remember the movie and experience all the magic that happens up close. So, be sure to play in the magical world that the ride offers!
