Have you heard about the new guest experience at Disney World?Enchanted Tales with Belle
 

Enchanted Tales with Belle

 
Enchanted Tales with Belle is a new attraction in Fantasyland that is best described as a guest experience, because it isn’t a ride, but it’s not a regular character encounter either. To be honest until I went and actually experienced it myself, I didn’t really “get it”.
 
You start out in line outside of the house Belle grew up in. Then you go inside for a “tour”. Someone points out random stuff in the room and if you are like me, you will wonder, “Is this it?”. Finally, they start telling you about this special mirror given to Belle from Beast. As they explain it the mirror begins to transform into a magical doorway into Beast’s castle.
 
Once inside you are greeted by Madam Wardrobe. She explains that we are going to surprise Belle by acting out the story of how she fell in love with the Beast. At this point about 10 guests are picked to act out different parts of the story.
 
Lumiere greets us in the next room and calls out to Belle. When she comes in, we surprise her with the story. My son was picked to play Beast and it was adorable. My husband got picked to play Maurice, which was hilarious, but I promised no public pictures of this.

Afterwards there was time to get photos of them with Belle. Everyone left with a bookmark from her.
 
If your child is dressed up in a Storybook Belle Costume ir?t=mommtrav 20&l=as2&o=1&a=B002IRBONAthen they will get a ton of attention from Belle and remember if you are going to have your child dress up, consider buying the costumes before going into the park. It will save you tons of money.
 
Enchanted Tales with Belle is probably my favorite Disney experience to date so far. Here is a short video of our son playing the role of Beast when we visited in 2014.

Get Travel Insurance

Unfortunately, there are a lot of things that can go wrong on any trip. Be prepared for the worst with travel insurance. We use Travelex or Safety Wing (often cheaper).

Book Flights

I use Skyscanner to find flights. I use it so much, I wrote an entire guide to finding cheap flights with Skyscanner!

Book a Place to Stay

I recommend using Expedia.com or Hotels.com for most hotel bookings. I prefer to book directly with Marriott when I stay there because of their excellent military discount.

If you prefer staying in a vacation rental instead, I recommend VRBO. If you are looking for a hostel, I use HostelWorld.

Rent Clothes

Rent clothes for your trip with Travel Style Expert for only $50 a month! The first 30 days are free!

Choose Activities and Tours

To find great activities in any area I use Viator. If we are visiting a city with lots of popular attractions I always check CityPass and GoCard to see if they have discount cards available. Groupon also tends to have a lot of local travel deals.

When I want to book a full-on multi-day tour I use TourRadar. They’ve got fantastic weekly deals. If I am going somewhere in Mexico or the Caribbean I use Apple Vacations.

Rent a Car or Take a Lyft

More often than not Lyft is cheaper than Uber. Use my Lyft link for an $18 credit! For a car rental in any country, I recommend Hertz or Discover Cars.

Save Money on Gas

Upside a free app gets you cash back on gas! Use promo code RV2Q2 to get an extra 15¢/gal bonus on your first purchase.

Get a Visa

I use iVisa to get all of my Visas.
