    The next room we went in had the Armoire. We were then allowed to volunteer to be part of the show. I told Claire she had to if she wanted a picture with Belle. At that point in time I had read only those who were part of the show actually got a picture with Belle. I am not sure if this has changed or not. I heard there were quite a few complaints and it was talked about being changed, but I haven’t kept up on the issue much.

    Sadly, Claire was not chosen as the Beast, but she was chosen to be Phillppe.

    Adults could volunteer as well and after the main characters were given out, they asked if anyone wanted to be something and I said yes and became a picture frame. (sorry, there is no picture of me in all my glory!)

    I believe we had to practice a few things and then were led into the library.

    [​IMG]

    I believe the story was that we were surprising Belle.

    While we got settled in I took a lot of pictures of the room.

    There are benches to sit on, but most of the kids got up front on the floor.

    Lumierre was amazing!

    What you have posted so far from Enchanted Tales with Belle looks amazing. I start to wonder if I somehow have to squeeze this in in December.

    Woo Hoo for the new car :banana: I can't wait to see a picture.

    That baby hat was cute. If I put one on river at that age he would have flung it out of the boat:laughing:

    We never got to do Enchanted Tales with Belle when we were there the line was always at least an hour long and neither one of us wanted to wait in the heat that long for anything. I would like to see it sometime though.

    :rotfl2:

    it is neat and I do suggest seeing it at least once. I am not sure if I would consider it a repeater, especially if lines are long.

    I need to get pictures of it. I have some really bad phone pictures so far. I now have bug guts on it too, so I need to wash those off.

    I have heard the lines are really long and I wouldn't want to wait for it either. I think it is going to have fastpass plus though.

    Claire used to love hats as a kid, but I don't know if she would've kept that on with the elastic around her fat face. :goodvibes

    How neat that both you and Claire were able to participate in the show! We skipped Enchanted Tales when we went because, quite honestly, none of us were really interested in it. Even me. Can you believe it?

    It is neat to see, but I don't see it being so popular in years to come. Well kids will probably like it, but for me not a draw to go back over and over. Some shows and things I love to do over and over and others...once is enough.

    Great pics at Enchanted Tales with Belle. I have to admit that I have no desire to do this (let alone wait more than 10 minutes for it); I suppose that will change if I have a granddaughter at some point. But it's fun seeing other people's children (and parents :rotfl2::rotfl2:) participate.

    There is some really neat technology in there, but I think Claire will not like it in a few years time.

    Ahhh - CRT! Can you believe I haven't eaten there yet? Someday. :rotfl: Claire looks like she is really loving the princess interaction and the make your own cupcake.

    I love Claire's party dress. How much longer do you think she will want to wear all those adorable clothes? I'm sure she has a few years left before she becomes a pre-teen. :faint:

    I can't believe you haven't tried it yet. It's something to do for an experience at least.
    Well Claire will wear them forever....because she is not allowed to grow up. After all I went through with Paige last month, Claire was told she must stop growing this very minute!

    It was now time for Belle to arrive. And she was very surprised!

    [​IMG]

    Again, I am going to be a bit caddy, but doesn’t Belle look like she could play one of the step sisters? Ok, this really is a bad picture of her and she wasn’t horrible, but in years past we just had some really beautiful princesses.

    I believe we then acted out Belles story. Soon it was time for Claire to make her move.

    The nice thing is they have photopass in there!

    Because with the no flash rule…..I wasn’t getting all that great of shots!

    This little girl was the Beast.

    Then we all paraded around the room!

    [​IMG]

    And a quick hello with Belle.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Belle is so surprised to see me! She is probably wondering why I have a major eye squint going.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Beast says goodbye to Belle.

    [​IMG]

    And then we got to pose with Belle for a picture, but from where I was standing I couldn’t get a good one of Claire.

    [​IMG]

    Good thing photopass did.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Belle gave everyone a bookmark after the picture.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    My turn ….squinty eye and all

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Time for Belle to leave.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    One last picture of the light fixture and then we headed out and they were passing photopass cards to everyone as we walked out.

    [​IMG]

    This was a fun experience. I don’t think it will hold our interest for too long in the future though. As long as Claire wants to meet Belle, we’ll probably do it, but after another time or 2, I really don’t see this as being something that we can’t miss. Especially if lines are long.

    Great photos with Belle, even the squinty eye one. ;)

    I am sure we will do that whenever we have grandchildren or if the girls want to do it on our girl trip.

    OK, now I think I need a chicken exit. I would love to see all the waiting areas and special effects, but I am not sure I am actually that bothered about the show.

    I tend to have a squinty eye and noticed as the trip went on it was pretty bad. i think because of the lack of sleep. ;)

    Lumierre is pretty cool to see in there and the show was fairly short too. You could always fake a bathroom emergency!

    I like Enchanted Tales with Belle. I can see my girls wanting to do this over and over again… they are still young- so right in line with it! Sad thing, I can't see how they could do a Fastpass for it… cause I wouldn't want to miss out on the enchanted mirror!!

    Funny thing, several years ago, they had a a video out called "Princess Enchanted Tales" and it was suppose to be a series of short movies of each princess… We have the first (and only!) one that has a short with Aurora and Jasmine. I hate that they didn't continue the series, because we like the one we have. :confused3

    I think we have that DVD too. I didn't realize they didn't release more than that one.

    Did you guys go to Enchanted Tales when ou were there. I can't remember now if you did or not.

    Welcome! I am so glad I am inspiring you to cruise. It is so much fun! Thanks so much for taking the time to read (and following me still even though I am so slow!). I do try to give as many details as I can....of course as the time is passing some of those details are getting fuzzy. :lmao:

    Yes, we loved Enchanted Tales. Cortlyn was a Picture frame! She still talks about it! I think it's a GREAT show for the tiny ones!!

    Jenn has me DREAMING of my first family cruise that is for sure!! We're thinking of going in 2015 as well- gotta save up, but also want to make sure our youngest is good and potty trained! :rolleyes:
