The attraction reopened on January 17th after being closed since October, and shares a theater with the Beauty and the Beast Sing-Along.

The attraction premiered at the park on EPCOT’s opening day in 1982, and has been running ever since. However, since the Beauty and the Beast Sing-Along premiered on January 17th, the film’s operating hours have been severely reduced, only running from 7:30 to 9:00 PM daily.

But for those willing to stay late are rewarded with one of EPCOT’s finest films that’s been given the tender love and care it deserves.

  1. Sad that they reduced the operating time, Beauty & The Beast is less representative of France than this Wonderfull Impressions de France. I guess Disney are trying hard to make Epcot kid-ish. To bad For me world showcase should stay focused on the cuntries & culture and less Disney characters (which is great for the other parks)

  2. These are actually Lefou’s home movies that he shot on his circlevision camera that Belle and Prince Adam gave him as a thank you gift for bringing them together.
