Mickey Mouse and his closest pals stood beneath the arches of the castle wall in New Fantasyland at Magic Kingdom Park to welcome them.
Belle was excited to meet them in her library.
And Gaston waited outside his tavern to offer them a mug of LeFou’s Brew.
While New Fantasyland officially opens December 6, we were excited to open the gates for an exclusive sneak peek this weekend with some of our most important neighbors. Dozens of members of the Boys and Girls Clubs of Central Florida, who share Belle’s love of learning, were among the first to experience the latest example of Disney storytelling. They found themselves inside the pages of some of their favorite stories by experiencing the new Enchanted Tales with Belle, Under the Sea ~ Journey of the Little Mermaid and a double dose of Dumbo The Flying Elephant.
Their excitement and laughter truly added to the magic of this enchanted place. And I can’t think of a better way to write a new chapter of Disney history than by creating childhood memories in a land where the pages of a book come to life. Fantasyland is here for these kids to enjoy today and for years to come.
