Besides not having to pay for more face characters, the no Belle in MK besides ETWB makes no sense.

(spoilers for anyone who doesn't want to know anything about ETWB)

In the context of the attraction, Belle in ETWB is Belle FROM THE PAST based on the info we have from the soft opening/testing. That means, not having her in the Princess m&g AND at CRT (which were both happening at the same time previously) make no sense, unless she is going to be meet-able outside of ETWB in the new area as well.

Of course, if people start complaining, they can also use that explanation to put her back in either CRT or the new Hall or whatever.

Doing MK on a Saturday in the fall is the most crowded day you could possibly pick as it is already though.
I know, unfortunately we picked our park times around dining reservations! Can't change those now. Oh well!

P.S. You need to change your name to Senator Meyer! Haha, OSU Grad right here! I miss columbus!

Go Bucks! I will be in Disney during the same time as you, but will not be doing MK that day! Short day at AK and then back to the resort to watch OSU!

Urban Meyer is no Senator, he's the Prince of Freakin' Darkness!

I still say the Belle thing is a colossal miss on Disney's part. I understand that there could be some logistical considerations.... but to have her disappear in the MK for real meet & greets just as her village opens is just wrong. They needed to find a way to handle this differently.

I agree, but I'm still holding out hope for a slight change in format so that the show better serves as a meeting spot. I really hope so anyway because DD4 is just starting to come into her princess phase and already loves Belle best, and I don't want to have to start making room for Akershus in our plans when there are so many better dining options at Epcot.

It sucks she won't be doing regular M&Gs in MK. She'll still be in Epcot, right?

So when and if do you think there will be test runs for Be Our Guest? I can't believe that the 19th would be the first time that ANYONE could eat there, I mean it is going to be so busy they have to have practice before that!

Back when Disney used to sell individual tickets for each ride, the top rides required an E ticket. The smaller, not so popular rides were A ticket then B ticket and so on. It's just a way of saying its going to be a ride/attraction with a major crowd draw.

I think the main problem with this would be timing issues. They have to move people in and out of the room(s) in a timely fashion, and this just wouldn't work in a 'meet and greet' format. Just IMHO, of course!

.......... which is precisely why they needed to find a way to make her available somewhere else in the MK. Still calling this a colossal miss.

This attraction is going to be busy enough. It does not need the additional traffic from people who might just be happy to meet her at TST.

Until they get this worked out, I think this is going to be a big disappointment to a lot of little princess fans who want to meet Belle. Especially those who go in thinking this really will be a meet and greet.

I guess I understand them removing her from TST but I'm surprised they're taking her out of CRT, will they take Ariel out too when her Grotto opens? I understand that CRT and the FLE are in close proximity, but how will they explain it when PFH opens almost literally right beside CRT? As soon as you leave the restaurant you barely step into FL and there are all of the princesses you met at your meal available to meet again...in very close proximity.
