Maurice's workshop

Walt Disney World has released the latest in a series of preview images of the Magic Kingdom's Fantasyland expansion, this time showing the interior of Maurice's Cottage.

The cottage will form part of the Beauty and the Beast-themed Enchanted Tales with Belle attraction, with guests entering via Maurice's workshop. They will then be led into Belle's library, where Belle and talking candlestick Lumiere will retell the story of the movie.

Enchanted Tales with Belle will form part of the new Belle's Village area, which is being installed as part of a major expansion to the Magic Kingdom's Fantasyland. The village will be dominated by a large-scale version of the Beast's castle, which will host the Be Our Guest restaurant.

Disney recently revealed that the Fantasyland expansion won't be finished until 2014, having previously targeted a 2013 completion date. The final element is expected to be the Snow White-themed Seven Dwarfs Mine Train roller coaster.
