Belle not at Akershus anymore?

My co worker was there last week and said that Belle was not there in the yellow dress. She said it was Aurora. Do they change them up at Akershus? I always thought it was Belle at Akershus and Cinderella at CRT. I know the other princesses change from time to time but i always thought those to were staples as in they are the ones you get your picture with before you go to your table. Anyone else experience this? I am leaving tomorrow and Akershus is my DD(5) favorite because of Belle.

I know Disney makes a point of saying that certain characters aren't guaranteed. I would assume that Belle was ill or just unable to make it that day and they substituted Aurora. Hopefully, you'll have some recently returning people to chime in on their experience.

I'm with your daughter! I booked it for Belle She's my favorite, too!

At CRT they'll make sure to have Cinderella outside because it is, well, CINDERELLA's Royal table. At Akershus, they don't guarantee Belle. We did have a meal there where we met Aurora out front because Belle wasn't feeling well so the Beast insisted she go back to the castle to rest. This isn't the norm but it does happen. The majority of the time you'll meet Belle out front but again, there are no guarantees.

Well..... you could always tell your 5yo that Belle didn't want to take any chances of coughing on people's food so she decided to meet people with Beast (because if she gets weak from her cold he can carry her) over in France. Gotta get creative when plans don't go your way.

That is the funniest thing I have read in a while!!! Here's hoping that Belle is fine the day you are there. I'm sure it is the rare exception that Aurora is a last minute substitution for a sick Belle. We once saw poor Snow White have to walk out on her line at Germany in Epcot because she was NOT feeling good. There were a couple of unhappy kids, but I think the parents were relieved that their kids wouldn't be touching her and getting her germs!

The problem is that Belle won't be in her gorgeous yellow gown over in France. But you can find her in her finery over at the Town Square Theater in the Magic Kingdom.

Sometimes if the sisters or charming can't make it, they will send over one of the princesses to fill the spot. Snow white and aurora have also made rare appearances at 1900.

I just ate at Akershus for dinner on Tuesday and Belle was the first princess we met. She was right inside the entrance posing for photos that were included with the price of the meal. My husband is already trying to figure out how to photoshop me and the DDs out so he can just have a pic of him and Belle on his desk at work...(she was a pretty nice Belle!)

I'm guessing maybe this was at breakfast and Belle (in her blue) was filling in for Alice. I have heard of this happening before.
