My experience was just like Mesaboy's; there was no line, just those in the show were escorted up to see Belle. I went through it twice yesterday and it was this way both times.

Yes, it will have FP (or FP+, I'm not sure which). The FP line goes up the side of Maurice's cottage, so you miss the main cottage entrance and instead go directly into Maurice's workshop.

On days that they have previews, it appears to be open from later morning to about mid afternoon. However, it's not staffed 7 days a week - last week it was closed Thur/Fri, each week is different though.

Thanks Berlioz! We'll be there right after the grand opening so my fingers are crossed it will have regular FP available. We'd like to do this a couple times but are guessing the lines will be long so soon after grand opening.

Hopefully that's one of those things they're still working out and when all is said and done anyone will be able to get the picture. I'm not sure my youngest would participate in the show, it would probably depend on her mood because she can be shy at times, but she loves Belle and would definitely want a picture with her in the 'pretty' dress.

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!
DH and I thought that was interesting too. Our family was able to view Enchanted Tales with Belle on 9/8 as well. As we were leaving, DH said well I guess the only way to get a photo with Belle is to be involved in the show, it was kind of boring watching those that were in the show taking the pictures with Belle while all the other families had to sit there and watch. The problem (for me) is my kids don't just raise their hands to try and be in the shows, the only way they are involved is if the CMs come up to them and asks them....they are kind of shy like that. However, I thought that the whole thing was done very well and I just loved all of the interaction from the different pieces in each room (don't want to spoil it so I will stop talking now ).

I don't care anymore, saw it yesterday! But I will withhold details myself.

Did belle sign when she did storybook previously? Guess it's Epcot for signature and interaction or CRT (if she is there?). I'm okay with this...

Mesaboy...did you like it?

I am still resisting peeking at pictures and video...but it sounds delightful!

I'm so worried about the lines...they just made my MK day an EMH (124) and we have 8am CRT...so I'm afraid by time we get out Enchanted Belle will be a mess! Pooh.

Belle did sign in her old story spot. Yes, I liked it as much as a solo 44yo dude could--would've liked it a lot more if DD8 was there with me. I'm looking forward to her seeing it. It is a definite enhancement to the original experience, though the storytelling portion is shorter by quite a bit.

I will be in MK on Dec 8th. I have an 8.05am ressie at CRT and will go to FL afterwards.

Can anyone advise me of a plan of action for FLE?

Thanks in advance

The Little Mermaid ride shouldn't be a problem. It's a people eater so you should get to ride without much of a wait. The Belle meet and greet seems like it may be popular so you might want to get in line early for that. Same for lunch at Be Our Guest (unless you already have a dinner reservation, otherwise you're too late).

See, so glad I asked the question as I was thinking LM would be a problem. Should I grab an FP for Peter Pan before I do anything else? Thanks for your help

If Fast Pass is being offered for Enchanted Tales with Belle, I would pick up one of those, then head to Under the Sea - Journey with the Little Mermaid.

Since you will be there the first Saturday that FLE is open, I would expect somewhat long wait times for all attractions in this area, the longest being for Belle given the limited capacity and length of the experience.
