Enchanted Tales With Belle Previews?

I saw online that they seem to be doing a lot of previews of this right now. I was going to go to Animal Kingdom/Hollywood Studios Saturday but .... thisi s a must do if it's actually open. Any idea if and what hours it would be?

It is not something you can plan to right now. It's not even open to all who discover it, you must be invited.

I would just go with your normal plans and hope you get very, very lucky.

Oh. The 3 bloggers I've seen talk about it just mentioned how you ask the guy standing infront of the door. Yesterday I know they told everyone in line for philarmagic to go.

You might get lucky doing this, I'm just saying don't get your hopes up. Even if that were to work, there's no way to know right now when it'll be open, when it'll be closed, where they are doing the invites, etc.

Yes there is a door that people have got through but its not maned at all times with a CM looking for people.

In fact I saw a pic of the door and unless you know where to look you would never find it.

But as mesaboy2 pointed out there is no "This is how do it" plan. Its very random.

Alrighty Thanks guys. I'm an AP so it's no big deal if I stop by Magic Kingdom and it's not running it's not a huge deal.

Just to add to what the PP's have said.
My daughter and I were at MK this past Sunday and we went to the area where people that were invited went in (it's by the restrooms behind Pinocchio's Restaurant), we clearly saw a group of people with papers in hand (we assumed the invitation) gather around, then a CM came out and I approached her and asked if she was working with the special preview and she said yes. So I asked her if my DD and I could join the group and she said No, then she added that we wouldn't be able to get an invitation even if we asked...so we dropped it. I'm sure she was just doing her job but the way she said it wasn't all that pleasant.
So I agree as to not change your plans for something that might/ might not happen.
My DD already told me that we're going to MK this coming Sunday and going to Philarmagic all day I shouldn't tell her everything I read in these boards.

He's got a good post about it. He says: "At the moment, the Meet and Greet is more or less open to the public. You just have to ask this guy to open the door for you. Disney was telling people to head over here from Mickey’s PhilharMagic if they wanted to participate."

I was also at Magic Kingdom Sunday, I had known there were previews but I know they where for cast members and their families at the time, not the public. It seems to have changed over to the public as of the past few days.

My wife and I read what Josh said on easywdw last night and watched his videos, it looks amazing, and if you can get in on a sneak preview, that would be the way to go because it really looks like it is a giant long wait with no one on one time with Belle.

The animatronics look unbelievable though.

We were in MK on Sept 2nd around 1130ish and were approached by a CM and an invited in as we were heading toward the other end of Fantasyland in that open space by the construction walls. The people who had paper invitations were taken in a different door with no waiting. Those that had been randomly selected waited in a very hot queue for at least 30 minutes, but...it was worth every minute!

All three of our children were in the 'play' with Belle. They played the parts of Mrs. Potts, Chip and a salt shaker . The effects and decor were outstanding! I took at least a hundred pictures inside and out, but I'm not sure how to post them here. My only complaint was the fanless and (mostly) shadeless queue!

I was told by a CM at Philharmagic today that they were not testing it this afternoon at all. I didn't see anyone stationed over by the Pinocchio bathrooms either. Believe me... I wanted to peek inside! I've got a couple more days to try, though.
