Belle, Aurora & Snow White switcharoo

Belle is no longer meeting at Town Square Theater. Her only in park meet is now France at Epcot. She continues to meet at Akershus for meals as well.

Aurora has moved from her location next to City Hall and went back into the Theater.

Snow White has taken over the location next to City Hall for meets.

I know the loss of a traditional M&G for Belle is a blow to some, but at least it sounds like Snow will be a little easier to find.

Snow was easy for us to find on our recent trip, both in Magic Kingdom and in Epcot World Show case. How ever we are both disappointed about them moving Beast to MK and now you will have to make a reservation just to be able to meet him, he is our family favourite and we had met him 5 times on our recent trip.

Also why move Belle into a spot where you will need to take part in an attraction just to meet and have a photo, and she has been taken out of CRT now completely. There is no where else to meet them together and this kind of sucks, they were such a crowd favourite, with people lining up in Epcot up to 30-40 minutes before their scheduled meet.

It seems to be a lot like how the Jedi Training Academy used to be set up, leaving many disappointed kids and parents.

Ollivander's at WWoHP is the same way - I just don't get why they didn't have two shops set up to help accommodate the crowds.

Hmmm...makes me wonder if Disney has something up their sleeve with the new fastpass system, or who knows what. It's getting harder and harder to meet characters, it seems. And I think most people would like to be able to also meet characters other than the Fab 5 and the Princesses.

She just moved across the street
We'll see how it affects her only regular meet in France.

I know Disney brass will be watching that meet carefully for a while.

I assume this is mainly because Belle is doing Enchanted Tales?
Will Ariel still meet on the bridge with Eric, or is she also planning to be MIA now that FL is having soft openings?

Thank you for the update!

Ariel has been meeting in her grotto since Friday. Prince Eric has been retired. We met him during his second to last set. I said "This is my first time meeting you!" and he said "...and it will probably be your last."

Rumor is that she'll be leaving there if she hasn't already. Any word on that Kenny?

For someone with an entire new village, Belle is going to be keeping a fairly low profile it seems.

My 6 year old daughter loves Belle, is there a chance that they are running low on Belles and they may want to have as many Belles as possible for the the new Enchanted Tales with Belle. Maybe overtime they will have more Belles trained and she will show up in some of the old familiar areas. Does this make any sense? Just hoping the future lack of Belles is only temporary.

She wasn't there last night for dinner.

It was Rapunzel, Ariel, Snow White and Aurora.

Belle is still at Epcot in France though right?

We just left the new Belle area in FL. Totally hated it. Maybe I'll like it more when I don't have a 1 year old that doesn't understand why all the other children get to meet Belle and she doesn't. Totally a stupid move on my part to even do it!

Dumbest arrangement ever. I hope you'll write a letter of complaint to WDW. I already did.

Oh my goodness, if Rapunzel was at our CRT lunch that would be perfect!

I thought the rumor was Jasmine would be replacing Belle. Rapunzel would be great though!!!
