Sometimes no answer means no one knows. Disney has not been particularly clear on PSS or the tents.

They will open on December 6, but we don't know about soft opening.

I got to do Enchanted Tales with Belle today - had a GREAT time!!

Keep in mind, if you want a photo with Belle you HAVE to have a part in the show. I let the kids get all the parts first, then once they were out of kids they got the adults involved. At the end they ask, "does everyone have a part that wants one?" The last couple adults that wanted their photos were handed plates and spoons.

Here is my facebook album of my adventure:

I can't wait to go read about your adventure!

Have you heard if they are taking Belle out of Town Square Theater when this opens? It seems odd that she could have this whole new area open in the park but be that much harder to get photos with.

Yes, Belle will be leaving TST; I share your concern.

Wow. That's nutty. She's the star of the show and now she's going to be harder to get photos with than Rapunzel.

Thanks for the info though as always!

And my daughter just looked over my shoulder and said "Hey, I like her screen name!" (yours)

Haha - because Berlioz is the best!!

What's interesting is that they make sure everyone gets a part that wants one, but NO ONE ever says, you have to have a part to get a picture. So for shy kids who don't want to be apart of the show, they miss out on a quick photo too. That was the weirdest part. And when I say quick, I mean QUICK!

It'll be interesting to see what the feedback is as more people experience it.

But the rest was great!

I've heard conflicting things about the kids having to be involved in the show to get a picture. Touringplans originally said that they did have to participate, but then changed that to say that everyone can get pictures. The kids in the "parade" at the end of the show go up to meet belle, but anyone not in the show can simply go to the end of the line and they can still get a picture.

Interesting. At least I'm guessing there will be more reports from the field before we make it there in December.

I can't remember....... does anyone recall if they have said for sure if this will have FP when it opens for real?

Regardless of how this goes, it appears that the end result will still be that Belle has this gorgeous new area in FL yet she will be harder to meet than she was before it all opened. And apparently there will be no way to get her autograph in the MK. I'm gad I didn't ditch Epcot for this trip.

Am I alone in thinking that Town Square Theater is far enough from Fantasyland that they should leave her there?

So all these people getting to do The new Belle thing, how are you getting in? Is it just luck? Hanging out by the door and hoping? It seems a lot of people here have been able to do it. What's the secret?

Hung out by the door this morning and it opened just after 10:00a-- little birdie told me that might be the case. When the number of CMs outside the door jumped from 2 to 5 I figured it was about to open, and it did.

In the show I saw this morning--first of the day--only the participants got pics with Belle. At the end of the brief story, each was announced to her by another CM. Photopass photog took pics throughout and handed everyone who wanted one a Belle-specific PP card on the way out. Noticed about 5 management-type CMs watching with our group of maybe 15.

Line going in was already long when I exited about 30 minutes later.

Awesome. We have a CRT at 8am. Afterward we will stick around Fantasyland and try to get in at 10. Were they just letting people in or did you have to be asked?

I asked and was let in, as was everyone else. Be warned this is still not an everyday occurrence, it very well might not be available when you're there. Don't get your hopes too high.

Are they doing it just once on the days they are....if that makes sense? I'd love to do this cause my friend is a major B&B fan (and I'm a brainwashed Disney CM ) but we've only got two days in WDW this time and I dunno that we could go to MK in the morning
