Enchanted Tales with Belle
Anyone with a heart for reading or fans of Beauty and the Beast will want to experience Enchanted Tales with Belle at Walt Disney World. This is an endearing attraction that is unique compared to others.
How does Enchanted Tales with Belle work?
Guests are invited into Belle’s cottage in groups, where they are offered the opportunity to have a role in the interactive experience.
Children are allowed to participate before anyone else. And don’t worry about your child not getting picked. While there are a few more active roles, anyone that wants to participate will be given a part.
Another note is that parents shouldn’t be too worried if they have a shy child. From my experience, the cast members seem to know just how to handle the kids.
They do an excellent job of asking them to participate without making a big deal out of it.
After roles are assigned, you’ll gather around a room in the cottage and a door magically appears through the mirror.
Step through, and you’re transported to the Beast’s castle. There Belle awaits, and she needs help telling a story.
There are several benches in the rooms for parents and adults. However, Belle will encourage the children to sit down in front where they can help.
This attraction typically has reasonable wait times during the afternoon. It’s good to experience when everyone needs a break from the rides.
Enchanted Tales takes approximately 20 minutes for the entire interactive performance.
As mentioned above, children will receive a bookmark toward the end of the performance. In addition, there is usually a PhotoPass photographer taking pictures at Enchanted Tales with Belle.
While there isn’t the opportunity to have a formal meet with Belle here, all children that participate will have some interaction with her. A cast member will hand you a photo card on your way out. You can download the pictures online if you don’t have the Memory Maker.
