Ok, this is an idea I had for, suprise surprise, a Beauty and the Beast dark ride in Fantasyland, similar in exterior to all the other fantasyland dark rides with a similar-style queue and loading platform (with a stained glass window displaying belle and the human beast on the back wall of it). You depart from the station in your daintily-themed omnimover and into a dark room where the stone walls are just visible. Three stained glass windows tell the story (briefly and with movement etc. in the windows) of how he became the beast, ending with 'For who could ever learn to love a beast...'
We then emerge in the town square. We first see Gaston and Lefou talking about Belle (pirates-quality audio anamatronics for classic characters and with if possible better mouth movements). Then we see Belle reading on the fountain saying something like 'Father's not back form the fair yet, I wonder where he is...'
We then enter a huge room and the track does a semi-circular movement on the edge of a cliff the same shape. In the 'middle' is a forced perspective modle of the chateau perhaps with rain effects to establish the location. We then turn into the prison where Belle says she'll take Maurice's place as a prisoner.
The next section is the 'Be Our Guest' musical number with a chandelier, popping champagne bottles and of course the principle enchanted characters and Belle. We then enter a short scene of Cogsworth, Lumiere and Mrs.Potts on the window sill talking about the developing relationship which sets up the ballroom scene.
We see Belle and Beast dancing in the circular room as we hug the walls (I'm sure there are many ways in which this could be achieved). Then we go back to the town where Gaston and an angry mob plan to lay siege to the castle and kill the beast. Next we enter the grand hall where the mob is being attacked by the enchanted objects funnily before swerving up a spiral staircase to the roof where Beast and Gaston battle it out (a back and forth sturggle with that spike Gaston rips off). We turn and see Gaston falling off the roof and then the beast transforming. In a flash of light we enter the daylight ballroom for Belle and the human beast dancing.
Ta-da, yes it's optimistic, yes it might be flawed but I thought it would be a fun idea and thank you for reading
