    Hello! We are planning our trip for July and are very excited for the new Fantasyland! I was wondering, will we be able to go inside the Beasts castle? Thanks so much!

    Hi Chelsea!

    Congratulations on the planning of your Summer 2013 vacation to Walt Disney World!

    Most of the New Fantasyland Expansion Area will already be open well in advance of your July arrival, including Beast's Castle! The Enchanted Forest area, location of Beast's Castle, officially opens on December 6th, 2012. Take a look at some of the amazing details about Beast's Castle in this article from the Disney Parks Blog. There's even an amazing new shop, Bonjour! Village Gifts, opening in Belle's Village which will include some fabulous merchandise themed to the area.

    For a fabulous experience "inside" Beast's Castle, I'd so highly recommend that you consider a dinner reservation at the Be Our Guest Restaurant. This long awaited and highly anticipated dining location's reservations fill up very quickly, so be sure to log in to Disney Dining Reservations just as soon as your vacation countdown reaches that magical, 180-day mark.

    If you have further questions about the planning of your vacation, or would like recommendations, I welcome you to write me back any time Chelsea! I'd love to hear from you again!

    Wishing you a simply Magical time as you begin planning your Walt Disney World vacation!
