First Look: New Fantasyland’s Enchanted Tales With Belle
We’re just a few short months away from the grand opening of Magic Kingdom’s Fantasyland Expansion in Walt Disney World, and the beautiful new landscapes and experiences in the new area are almost ready. Recently, Walt Disney Imagineering and the Disney Parks Blog released a sneak peek of the new attraction Enchanted Tales with Belle, which gives us a first look at some of the incredible technology and theming that went in to this new interactive experience.
Enchanted Tales with Belle is a new attraction that allows guests to meet Belle from Beauty and the Beast and step inside some of our favorite locations from the classic film. The experience begins in Maurice’s Cottage, where guests can walk through Maurice’s Workshop to an incredible mirror, which becomes a portal that takes them to the next part of their journey. Check out a look at the Cottage and the brand-new technology of the portal from the Imagineers who worked on it below:
Once they go through the portal, guests come face to face with some of our favorite characters from Beauty and the Beast, including the Wardrobe, Lumiere, and Belle herself. Guests get to become part of the action by helping Belle tell the story of her and the Beast, as well as have a meet-and-greet with the famous princess. Take a look at the experience below:
Enchanted Tales with Belle will begin previews on November 19, with an official grand opening set for December 6.
