Storytime with Belle

This show is permanently closed. This page is retained here for historical interest.

Belle hosts her interactive storytime in the Fairy Tale Garden several times a day. The Fairy Tale Garden is designed as a very small amphiteatre with limited seating next to Cinderella Castle. Children are chosen from the audience a few minutes before showtime to help Belle act out Beauty and the Beast with costumes, and one lucky parent is asked to portray the Beast. After the 20 minute show, Belle will meet and greet with guests and sign autographs. If you have children interested in participating in the show with Belle, or are interested in finding a seat in the shade, try to arrive early.
