Meet Belle at Epcot
Belle’s formal meet-and-greet is in Epcot’s France Pavilion. She meets in her blue village dress at this location.
Belle greets guests along the World Showcase Promenade. Here is a look at where her line starts across the walkway from Chefs de France.
On the day of this visit, Belle was meeting at the following times:
- 9:30 a.m.
- 10:30 a.m.
- 11:30 a.m.
- 12:30 p.m.
- 2:20 p.m.
- 3:30 p.m.
As always, you will want to check the My Disney Experience app on the day of your visit for exact times. Or you can check the schedule here on Disney’s site.
When I arrived here along the water to meet Belle, it was 3:02 p.m. There were already three sets of guests ahead of me for her 3:20 p.m. scheduled meet-and-greet.
Since I got here early, I was able to meet Belle at 3:24 p.m. By the time I left, Belle’s line was exceptionally long. The line was so long that a cast member had already closed it for the day.
It’s important to get in these lines before the scheduled time whenever possible. For this location, no one else could meet her unless they were already in line.
When it was my turn to meet Belle, we had a pleasant conversation about books. Belle told me that she had recently read Romeo and Juliet.
Her advice was to read all the good parts and skip the ending. I asked if chapter three was a good place to stop, and she reminded me that was the best part.
Unfortunately, there was not a PhotoPass photographer present on the day of my visit. As of this update, we are seeing fewer of them at character meets.
However, Belle does sign autographs. You’ll want to have your autograph book out and ready before it’s your turn to meet her.
Belle formerly met in the gazebo in the France Pavilion in her yellow ball gown. However, as of late, this is where Aurora from Sleeping Beauty meets.

Belle also meets at Epcot for character dining. She meets at Akershus Royal Banquet Hall. Below is a photo of where we met her during breakfast at Akershus. Unfortunately, as of this update, they are not serving breakfast.

Meet Belle at Magic Kingdom
At Magic Kingdom, you can see Belle at Enchanted Tales with Belle. While this is not a formal character meet, this special interactive attraction offers guests the opportunity to see Belle up close.
Additionally, Belle is in the Festival of Fantasy Parade daily at Magic Kingdom. She is at the front of the very first float in the parade.

Unfortunately, Belle does not meet at Be Our Guest. Be Our Guest is the popular Beauty and the Beast-themed restaurant at Magic Kingdom.
The Beast is known to make appearances at the restaurant in the evening. However, he is not guaranteed.

Belle at Hollywood Studios
Lastly, Belle is the star of Beauty and the Beast Live on Stage at Disney’s Hollywood Studios. This performance is inspiring and worth taking the time to see if you’re a fan.
Meet Belle at Seasonal Parties
Belle also meets in her holiday dress during the Christmas Party at Magic Kingdom. This is an extra-ticketed event that’s held during the holidays.
If you plan to meet her at the party, expect a long line. Almost all of the characters at the party have exceptionally long lines because they are such rare meets.

Additionally, Belle meets with Gaston at the Halloween Party. Unfortunately, we don’t have an updated photo of this location. But meeting the pair is another rare opportunity exclusive to the party.

Also, remember to double-check her schedule on the day of your visit in the My Disney Experience app. Sometimes those scheduled times can change on a whim due to various circumstances.
