The Ariel’s Grotto meet and greet comes back this Sunday, January 22nd, 2023. Disney says of Ariel’s Grotto,

Enchanted Tales with Belle returns on February 19th, 2023. Disney says of Enchanted Tales with Belle:

Step into Belle and Maurice’s quaint country cottage and marvel at the charming decor. Next, tour Maurice’s workshop, where you’ll see his inventive gadgets—and a special enchanted mirror the Beast gave to Belle. Say the magic words and the mirror comes to life!

Watch the story of how Belle and the Beast met, and then behold the walls disappear before your eyes as you are magically transported to the Beast’s castle.

Meet the Enchanted Wardrobe, who will help selected participants prepare for their role. Which of you will play the Beast? Guests of all ages may volunteer!

It has been almost 3 years since both locations have been open! I’m happy to see both returning soon.
