A meet and greet combined with an interactive show, Enchanted Tales with Belle is a storybook adventure that takes guests into Belle’s village and her father’s invention workshop. Guests get to experience the beloved tale of Beauty and the Beast in a whole new way as they help Belle and Lumiere retell the story, with a few surprises along the way.
