Default Are fast passes for Under the Sea & Enchanted Tales with Belle?

Are there fast passes available for new Under the Sea and Enchanted Tales with Belle attractions?

If so, where the FastPass machines are located for them. Are they at the attractions or are they located outside Mickey's Philharmagic?

Thank you. We are going to the World next week, without a smart phone, and want to save on the walking as much as possible.

When we were there in December, they were at Mickey's Philharmagic. We had the fastpass plus trial, so we used 1 each for Under the Sea and Enchanted Tales with Belle. As of right now, Disney still shows Enchanted Tales as not having Fastpass . . . but as you know with Disney that can change on a moments notice.

According to Disney Parks, they are still offering regular FP for Little Mermaid, outside Mickey's Philharmagic.

Regular FP is not available for Enchanted Tales with Belle to my knowledge. They experimented with FP+ during testing of the system, but not sure if that is still an option.

I've been watching wait times for both of these attractions (getting ready for a Feb. trip). Belle is definitely one to hit early. It quickly becomes one of the longer lines in all of MK. Even surpassing Pan and Space Mtn. on certain days/times.

Mermaid doesn't get quite as long with the loading capacity of the peoplemover.

Let us know your experience with both! I'm interested to see how it turns out.

I already have experienced both of these attraction on my solo trip in December. I agree with Belle's gets very long wait times very quickly. The two times I went to Belle's it was right at ropedrop.
So we will probably get a FastPass for Little Mermaid then go right to Belle's unless they have Fastpasses for Belle also. We will have more then one day at MK.

Long wait times are and understatement . . . .

When we went in December, we had FP times from 3-4 and 4-5. Both rides were posted at 75 minutes . . . so we were really glad we got the FP+ trials!

So yes, I would say this is and early must do . . .

When we went in December we had the fastpass+ beta test, and Belle had that but not the regular fastpasses. When I asked about it 1 cast member said she did not know when it would be a full time fastpass, but another said he thought if it all went well then fastpass plus and fastpass would come up at the same time.

Jackie, we were there mid-Jan for Marathon Weekend and the Ariel FP was still at Philharmagic. But we walked on it our last night with no FP. Amazing!

Still no FP for Belle, and we waited 35 min, I believe. Longer than we usually wait for anything, but it was our first and only opportunity.

Good luck!

Today is actually Jackie's last day of her trip, so hopefully she can give us some firsthand updates when she returns.
