I love the Beast's library at Disney's CA Adventure in California. Belle from Beauty and the Beast was one of the MOST requested characters for my outreach events. She is kind, smart and makes friends easily. If you recall in the story, the beast gives Belle the library in his castle.
The spare room needed a makeover. I wanted to go fairy-tale dreamy and decided to create my own version of the Beast's Library. (On a budget!)
While at the library, every 4 minutes, wildfire changes the library from light to dark, then back to light again. When the beast arrives, the room grows dark and the portrait of Prince Adam (the beast) is marred from the beasts anger. Note the expression change on Prince Adam's face.
When the room is light and undisturbed, it is magical. There are books everywhere. Podiums and tables display open books where you can discover which beauty and the beast character you are based on a personality test.
The space is basic - 12x12 - two windows and beige carpet. My to do list:
Stay close, we'll see how the fireplace mantle was installed.
Growing up in Los Angeles in the 70s/80s we visited Disneyland on a regular basis and often after school, before "Annual Passes".
