With all the new real estate we’ve added to Magic Kingdom Park with the New Fantasyland expansion, new castles are popping up and Disney royalty is about to move in.

Check out this video, in which Belle and Beast enlist the help of HGTV’s “House Hunters International” to find them a new castle home. On Belle’s wish list is a library, of course, but with three lovely castles in the Fantasyland area, how can a girl choose?

  • Absolutely brilliant idea!

  • This video is so cute and creative. I love how they mixed the style of House Hunters International with the Disney princess stories. It definitely made me excited to take a trip to visit New Fantasyland!

  • Gotta Love Disney. The leave no stone unturned. So much fun, fantasy and detail. Love it!
    We have seen the New Fantasyland, in their dress rehearsals, it’s fabulous! Everything one would expect and more.
    My eight year old daughter and I really enjoyed this edition of House Hunters, Best one yet!! Great job Disney! Keep up the Magic.

  • This is why I love Disney… It’s just too good! (Personally I would have chosen castle #1) 😀

  • @Peter – You probably saw him hanging out at Disney’s Hollywood Studios for a while, if that helps. 🙂 (At least, I’m pretty sure it’s who we’re both thinking of.)

    This video is adorable! I cannot wait until next year when I get to see it all in person! Be Our Guest Restaurant is just the most perfect thing!

  • Couldn’t stop smiling! Loved it.

  • So cool! As an HGTV, and Disney fan, I got the beast of both worlds…opp’s, I mean “best”!,

  • Too cute! Love it! I can’t wait to see their new home =)

  • That was great! My daughter and I love watching those shows to guess what the buyers will pick. Congrats to Belle and the Beast on their new castle. Was hoping to get to see a little more of the castle interiors – guess we’ll have to wait to see them in person in May!

  • This was wonderful. We will not be getting there till september 2013 wish I could do magic and get there sooner

  • Good job yooz guyz.Y’all never fail to make our Day.OOOXXX.

  • I liked this even better than the Toy Soldier trying out for the parade! So cute! Thanks for the smiles!

  • This is THE cutest thing I’ve ever seen! I’m glad the seaside castle is still on the market 😉

  • That Realtor Jack fellow looks awfully familiar. It’s like I’ve seen his face before somewhere else, I just can’t remember where.

    I hope I get a job soon so I can save enough to experience this “golden shiny” that is New Fantasyland for myself. We don’t have anything like this where I’m from.

  • Hahaha I love this! I’m going to have to show my mom, she loves House Hunters International!

  • This is one of the funnier things I’ve seen you do, thanks for creating and sharing it!

  • Such a clever idea! Two thumbs up to whoever is making this adds!

    I can’t wait to see everything in February.

  • I dunno if it’s the same director working on all these promo videos (dwarves,Wicked Queen, Hook for Food & Wine, the toy soldier for Christmas, and this), but they’ve all been FANTASTIC!!! This is my favorite one, though, as I’m partial to anything Beauty and the Beast! Great job, Disney.

  • This is great! I love it!

    • Thank you!

  • I thought this was extremely cute and very cleaver. I enjoyed it very much. Can’t wait to see new Fantasyland in person.

  • LOVE this video. I really thought they would pick that lovely seaside castle but I guess that darn sea witch got in the way…
