Belle goes to Be Our Guest and France 

On my last day at Disney World I went Disney Bouding as Belle. I bounded as village Belle on my last trip. I wrote a blog post on that bound. This time I was going as ballroom Belle. I found a cute yellow dress at Forever 21 and gold flats at Steve Madden and a Belle bow I got at a craft fair. 

I was very happy I snagged a lunch reservation for Be Our Guest restaurant! I’ve eaten there once before for lunch and the food is delicious and fairly reasonably priced for the quantity.  The only bad thing, getting reservations is difficult, try getting them several months before you go. 

at the entrance to Be our guest

There are three dinning rooms to choose from  

the grand ballroom


the west wing

and the gallery room

I picked the West Wing this time. It’s small, but dark and mysterious. During the time there you can hear and see a lighting storm. 

The food was delicious I got the tuna salad and my mom got the quiche and French onion soup. Of course we also ordered the master cup cake, with the grey stuff. It’s delicious.

Try the grey stuff , it’s delicoius

leaving Be our Guest

Now to meet Gaston. Always try to line up 30 mins to 45 mins before Gaston comes out to insure you get a photo with him.  



Had a lovely time at the Magic Kingdom now on to EPCOT specifically France, home to Belle. In EPCOT they have Village Belle, which I love.  


Belle and Belle

After France I went to the UK and hung out with Alice  


She loved my dress and asked if I was going to a tea party? 

It was a fun day at Disney World and I miss it already. Have you ever Disneybounded before? And if you have or haven’t what character do you want to bound as next?  Thanks for reading! Have a magical day! 


Disney Bounding Belle

Disney Bounding has become a bit more popular and unlike cosplay you don’t have to sew an exact replica. All you have to do is use regular clothes and accesorries  that represent the character. I had fun last week Disney Bounding as Belle in Disney World. I used a blue dress, a white blouse, ballet flats, and of course you can’t forget the blue bow.

I headed over to New Fantasyland to have lunch at Be Our Guest restaurant. I’m annoyed that they now require reservations when I went you just had to wait 40 minutes, now you have to book lunch reservations months in advance if you can even get through.


There are three different dinning rooms to choose from the ball room, the gallery room, or the west wing. The west wing is cool with a dark feeling and a rose losing it’s petals. I ended up in the gallery room.

My mom ordered the quiche with salad and I ordered the slow cooked pork, with mashed potatoes and vegetables. Everything was delicious


Of course you can’t forget dessert. The master cupcake is amazing, the grey stuff it’s delicious. It’s a chocolate cupcake with grey frosting and a chocolate piece. It was so moist and fluffy. I savored every bite.


I had a wonderful meal there and hope to be back there again.


Now after that wonderful lunch I headed to Gaston’s Tavern to see if Gaston was around. I was busy reading when I saw him, he noticed my book and then took it from me and put it high on the building rafter.


I took a few photos with him. He does like to take pictures, because he thinks he is beautiful.

IMG_5771When the picture taking was done I asked if he could “Please give me back my book”!”


He really didn’t want to, in fact he got my book down and gave it to a total stranger and told him to throw it in the trash. You know he is not a fan of books. Maybe he doesn’t know how to read? Luckily the stranger gave it back. Gaston is quite the character, in fact I would say he is positively primeval.


After my time in the Magic Kingdom I headed over to Epcot, I had dinner reservations in France and also was excited that they had Village Belle there.

A quick stop at the UK and said hello to Alice.

Then off to France and at that moment it started raining so pictures with Belle were moved inside.


Reading is fun!

After my reading session with Belle I headed to Monsieur Paul, it’s a wonderful restaurant. I always like to splurge on one or two fancy meals during my vacation and this was it. I was compliment by the waitress who said when she approached the table she thought Belle was dinning with them.



I had a great day Disney Bounding, received many complements on my Belle bound and many cast member played along calling me Belle and Princess. Have you tried Disney Bounding? And if so what characters have you bounded as? I can’t wait to Disney Bound again!
