Celebrate Beauty and the Beast throughout Disney World

Belle has long been a popular Disney character, but she wasn’t too easy to find around Disney World for many years. That changed with the addition of New Fantasyland and the popularity of the live action film. Belle and other Beauty and the Beast characters, such as Gaston, can now be found in several locations and events around the Parks. One of my favorites, Enchanted Tales with Belle located in magic Kingdom, is a great interactive attraction that lets you get up close and personal as part of the story. It’s a rare chance for the little kids to...
