Enchanted Tales with Belle Preview w/ Maurice’s Cottage, Magic Mirror, Madame Wardrobe, Lumiere and Belle! – Photos and Full Video

Hi everyone!

We have been very fortunate to have the opportunity to bring you “first looks” at different areas of Fantasyland. From Gaston in front of Gaston’s Tavern, to the sign in front of Be Our Guest Restaurant, we’ve found new details that we’ve enjoyed sharing with you.  Today we’ll be taking a look at Maurice’s Cottage behind the walls of the new Fantasyland! A friend of ours was invited by a Cast Member to preview this location yesterday, including “Enchanted Tales with Belle“.  He could either photograph or videotape at any given time, so we have photos of the outside and inside of Maurice’s Cottage, but only video of the experience within.  In the future, we’ll have both covered fully! Cast members in their new costumes lined the walkways to Maurice’s Cottage (below, left). The cottage itself has been seen quite a bit online, and has a whimsical look to it (below, right). There is even a wishing well!

Hi everyone!

We spent a few hours yesterday at the Magic Kingdom (below, left) – it’s hard to believe it’s been a month since we’ve visited! The last visit we made was when the Casey Jr. Splash ‘N Soak area was opened. The Main Street Bakery had been under a facade for quite some time including the last time we were here, and it looks very nice and bright now (below, right).

Hi everyone!

Yesterday we went to Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort (below, left) to see the beautiful Easter Egg Display in the lobby (below, right). This is the first year of the lobby display, though the decorated eggs have been placed in restaurants during the Easter holiday for the last 15 years. Each egg is hollow milk chocolate, weighing 9 – 12 pounds and is 16 – 20 inches tall!
