Beauty and the Beastâ€ was released in theaters in 1991, and to say that I was obsessed with this movie is putting it mildly. I was 12 years old when it debuted and I mustâ€™ve seen the film at least 10 times that summer. In my mind, nothing was better than spending an afternoon wrapped up in this tale of â€œfar-off places, daring swordfights, magic spells, a prince in disguise!â€ I remember sitting in the theater, dreaming of visiting Belleâ€™s quiet French village, exploring the halls of the Beastâ€™s mysterious castle and whirling across the golden ballroom in a gown of the same color. Soon fans of all ages will have the opportunity to do just that and take a trip through the world of â€œBeauty and the Beastâ€ at the Enchanted Tales with Belle storybook adventure, which is currently under construction as part of the Fantasyland expansion at Magic Kingdom Park.

The workshop, which is modeled after a French cottage, will be surrounded by a wishing well, footbridges and lush landscaping. Once inside, guests will step through a magic mirror and find themselves inside Beastâ€™s expansive library, which he created as a gift for Belle in the film. This room will serve as the setting for a memorable character interaction experience with Belle â€“ which will require a little help from Lumiere, the enchanted candlestick.

These and other Fantasyland enhancements will open in phases starting in late 2012.
