REALLY dumb question about ETWB

I have studied maps of the new Fantasyland, and Googled pictures of Maurice's cottage. While we are "fast-walking" from RD to ETWB, is there any chance we won't find it right away or get in the wrong line? Is it very obvious exactly where to go?

I'm assuming everyone will be going to the same place in that area first thing in the morning, so we will just follow the crowd. But knowing our luck, and how my husband & I argue about directions, I can just see us being the only family who doesn't make it to the correct line right away.

It's the first attraction on the left after you go over the bridge into NFL. You won't miss it. It took us 6 minutes to walk from the train tunnel to ESWB and we were in group 2 and the staging areas are fun. It was a little funny that the CM in Maurice's workshop spoke TERRIBLE french and his bon jour sounded a whole lot like Brad Pitt's in that Quenten Tarrentino film with the inappropriate and misspelled name.

I am sure there will be a cast member there...and not a dumb question at all. We did miss it bc the entrance to the que is downstream from the cottage. However there was a cast member there and I politely said "Belle??" and she pointed me straight in. And that was before I knew the need for trying to "fast walk" there. We waited almost an hour...needless to say we will be "fast walking" this go round

May I ask what the RD and ETWB are?

Ah yes, Rope Drop. I knew that; just had a temporary loss of memory (must be my age) but I did not know ETWB. Thanks for the info. I just looked on the sticky but I did not see either listed.

Is Enchanted Tales with Belle worth the wait?

If you have little ones who are Belle fans, it would be worth it. For me, now that I've done it once and I don't feel the need to ever do it again. It was cute but it's kind of an "act pout story with props" Kind of an extended meet and greet with lots of Belle interaction. And I played the Wardrobe in it too.

I did it as part of my "experience the NFL" goal. I won't do it until I have grand kids.

The only bridge that I know of in New Fantasyland is after ETWB, and leads to Be Our Guest. ETWB is the first thing on the left as you enter New Fantasyland. If you're crossing or passing a bridge, you've gone too far.

I will agree. If you like Belle, go for it. Otherwise, no way. It was an hour of my life, I'll never get back.

I did it with the kids when we did a trip without hubby. I actually think my husband would enjoy it. If we caught it at RD it'd be worth it. But then we'd not need to do it again.

I stand corrected...I guess in my early morning fog I saw the entrance as a bridge. Its the first attraction on the left when you pass into NFL.

No worries. I just want to make sure the OP doesn't make a wrong turn.

I see your DD is 12. Mine is 8 and we are on a four year schedule, so I wonder if mine will want to at 12.

I had the same question! Glad we have people that can lead us in the right direction!
