One of the attractions in the New Fantasyland, Enchanted Tales With Belle is an attraction where guests can travel through the 1991 film, “Beauty and the Beast”.

Guests enter into Maurice’s cottage, then “pass” through a magic mirror, to Beast’s castle. They then see Madam Wardrobe, as some guests are cast as some of the characters from the film. Then into the library, where they can see Lumiere and Belle herself. The ones that volunteer to take part in the show, get to meet and get a photo with Belle, while the rest just sits in the audience.

The attention to detail in the cottage and castle parts are very impressive, as well as the special effects of the audio-animatronics of Madam Wardrobe and Lumiere. Just amazing to look at. Unfortunately, those were the only small positive things I could say about this attraction, as there are a few big problems.

The first one is the line. There is no Fastpass, so you have no choice but to wait in the standby line. And it moves so slow, in the sunlight. A very big problem in the Florida sun.

Another problem, is that it’s not much of a show, just Belle being surprised on her birthday, then posing with the guests that did volunteer, in a photo, and they get a souvenir, which is… get this… a bookmarker! I guess it makes sense, since it’s in a library, and Belle loves to read! The ones that did not volunteer, just have to sit and wait until the show ends.

Overall, the attraction was okay (and that’s being very generous). But after waiting in line in the sun for over 20 minutes, okay is not good enough. Unless you have kids, and/or a fan of the movie, this attraction can be skipped.

Best bet, is arrive right when the Magic Kingdom open, and go straight to this attraction, so you can get see it yourself, and get it over with.
