Enchanted tales with belle

I have a 2 yr old. She has not seen many disney princess movies yet but do you think she will like this attraction?
I'm worried as I heard it 45 min long and I'm worried a 2 yr old would be climbing the walls.
Thoughts?

Using a certain word brings out a special kind of cray-cray

She'd probably like it, but if she won't sit still it may be worthwhile to get her into the cast, maybe as a dancing dish or something.

I had the same concern for my 2 year old boy. There is a video on YouTube by undercover tourist on YouTube. After watching it I decided to skip this time around. Maybe watch it and see what you think.

Go to Belle immediately after entering at rope drop. Be at the front entrance 15-30 minutes before posted opening. This works even better if you're staying on property and can go for early magic hours in the morning. Watch the opening show in front of the train station and then you will be allowed to enter the park. Go straight down Main Street and through the castle. They may stop you at the entrance to Fantasyland but just wait there until they open the area. Proceed directly to Belle's cottage (left around the merry-go-round). If you are part of the first few shows, you'll get in with a minimal (about 20 minutes or so) wait. Belle backs up within 45 minutes of the regular park opening so you must be first. The wait will not be long and the show is cute. Side tip: if you or someone in your family can get to be part of the show, that person gets their picture with Belle. Otherwise, she takes off and does not sign autographs. Good luck!

the show / experience is only about 20 minutes. They keep things moving along. You enter the cottage and look around there, move into the mirror room and see that magic (very cool). Then there is the wardrobe room where parts are picked/ assigned - do get her a part - so much fun! Then you're on to the event which is lively, interactive and fun! She'll have a great time!!

It is no where near 45 min. long - 15min. maybe We were just there and saw it twice. No wait at all - we just wanted to see how the mirror worked and take videos of it (just dh & I).

Little kids love it though if they are outgoing enough to participate. The first group we saw were hilarious, and really got 'into' the play acting. The second time none of the kids were really into it, so wasn't very exciting. It would be worth trying with your dd.

Great! We will try it. I'm sure my kid won't be the first to have a meltdown worst case

This past March we took my nephew who just a week away from his 2nd birthday. We went first thing in the morning. He knows Mickey but not the princesses. He was enthralled by the show and sat on the bench and hardly moved. His mom brought him up to meet Belle and the photopass photographer got a lot pictures of him and Belle. It was very cute.
