The new live-action Beauty and the Beast is in theaters across the world and without a doubt is a huge hit. Every little girl wants to be Belle, meet Belle, dance and twirl and get dressed in her finest gown! And Walt Disney World Resort is full of Beauty and the Beast to help everyone experience even more!
You can visit and be a part of the story at Enchanted Tales with Belle in Fantasyland at Magic Kingdom Park. You will be transported through an enchanted mirror to Beast’s castle, just in time to help Lumiere and Madame Wardrobe host a very special surprise for Belle. The audience gets to play various characters from the film to re-tell the story of how Belle and Beast met just before she has dinner with Beast.
At Disney’s Hollywood Studios the Beauty and the Beast – Live on Stage! will immerse you in a Broadway-style show where Belle, Gaston, Beast, Mrs. Potts and other characters perform songs and scenes from the classic film. The 25-minute performance takes place daily at the Theater of the Stars.
A sneak peek of the live-action film is screening at the theater inside of the Walt Disney: One Man’s Dream attraction now through March 26. You can see Belle’s iconic yellow ball gown and the Enchanted Rose from the live-action film in a gallery exhibit inside the attraction.
At the Magic Kingdom, Belle and Beast lead off the Disney Festival of Fantasy Parade as it loops from Frontierland to Main Street, U.S.A. Parade starts at 3 p.m. daily.
