Welcome to the Magical Blogorail!

Welcome to the Magical Blogorail!

Welcome to those of you joining me from Magical Mouse Schoolhouse and those of you just hopping aboard. I am the 4th stop on our Magical Blogorail. This month we’re talking about the new fanatasyland expansion at Walt Disney World, and sharing what we’re most excited to experience. This was a tough one! There’s so much to choose from. In the end, I had to choose the Be Our Guest Restaurant.

First off, I’ve always loved Belle. She was the first of the new Disney princesses, and the first one who really had the deep characterization and guts that I could respect. Belle was the first princess that I could really imagine myself becoming. The earlier princesses were too simplistic. They cooked and cleaned, and sometimes even got dirty, but their big character elements were being pretty and being kind. Both wonderful qualities, but I wanted something more.

Belle was pretty as an afterthought. She was intelligent and creative first. I could relate to that! And she dismissed Gascon without a second thought when every other girl in the village fainted every time he walked by. (Someday I’ll tell you about the day I did the same thing in high school. Poor guy probably didn’t deserve it, but….c’est la vie.) All this, and she gets the pretty ball gown too.

So, I’ll be spending some quality time in Belle’s area of the new fantasyland. But what experience am I most looking forward to? Dinner at Be Our Guest. The restaurant will feature classic French dishes in the Beast’s castle. What more could I ask for? Amazing food served in the newest Disney castle. Disney Parks has released a behind the scenes video I’d like to share with you, because I’ve watched it so many times anticipating this latest culinary fantasy from Walt Disney World:
