Stroll the path through an artfully planted woodland and meadow to a rustic French cabin complete with waterwheel, where Belle's father, Maurice, tinkers with his inventions. The small homestead oozes Belle's provincial life, with a giant pot hanging in the fireplace and books stacked on a simple wooden chair. Inside her father's workshop, amid blueprints and tools, a giant gold-framed mirror hangs. A costumed cast member welcomes your group to the workshop (Bonjour!)
and implores everyone to chant, "Take me back to the day Belle and Beast fell in love!" Voila! The mirror becomes an animated screen straight from the Disney film Beauty and the Beast before transforming into a portal that leads to an elegant room of Beast's Castle. Inside, an Animatronic Madame Armoire encourages guests to grab props and play character roles from the "tale as old as time." Then, it's on to the library, where a spot-on Animatronic Lumiere holds court from the mantle. Families grab a cushy bench as a coiffed actress playing Belle joins guests to act out a scene from the enchanted tale. You'll dance around the room to "Be Our Guest," and you may shed a tear as the interactive story unfolds. This live performance gets to the heart of Disney storytelling, and every participant poses for photos with Belle before a very happy ending. For people with disabilities: Wheelchair accessible; equipped for handheld captioning and assisted listening. Don't miss this enchanting experience while waiting for your Under the Sea: Journey of the Little Mermaid or other Fantastyland Fastpass appointments.
