“Enjoy an interactive story adventure featuring Belle, Lumiere, and you!”
On December 6, 2012, the interactive attraction Enchanted Tales with Belle opened in Walt Disney World’s Magic Kingdom as part of the New Fantasyland expansion. Guests are taken to Maurice’s cottage, where they find that Belle and Beast gave him a magic mirror to visit Belle at the castle any time he wishes; guests are then taken through the mirror to the castle, where they are selected to play special roles to tell the story of Beauty and the Beast for Belle, who is getting ready to meet the Beast for dinner and dancing that night. Lumiere acts as the narrator for the story, and directs the guests in a chance to surprise Belle with a wonderful story. All guests that are selected to be a part of the story get their picture taken with Belle, a special PhotoPass card, and a special gift as a thanks for participating.
