The 1991 animated Disney princess movie called Beauty and the Beast is still considered to be one of many Disney fans’ favorite movies. With its charming countryside and regal ballroom aesthetics, it is not surprising to learn that the Disney princess Belle and her story have inspired many people’s fashion and decor choices in their own lives offscreen — but one home in Disney’s Golden Oak gated community in Central Florida has really taken that theme to heart!
Take a look at this gorgeous Disney house, which was (like the other homes in the exclusive gated community) designed by Imagineers from Walt Disney Imagineering! Social media influencer and blogger Cristie Anne Cabrera (@thetravelingred) recently shared an inside look at the Beauty and the Beast cottage that took inspiration from the 1991 Disney movie — because she lives there!
Our home in Disney’s Golden Oak… this neighborhood is minutes from Magic Kingdom and it was designed by Disney Imagineers. #disney #disneyworld #goldenoak #bellescottage #beautyandthebeast #disneyhouse #disneyhome #disneyhomedecor
This Disney enthusiast and blogger purchased Belle’s Cottage in the Symphony Grove portion of the Disney Golden Oak gated community in Central Florida, so Cristie and her family spend some of their time in said house within the Golden Oaks community. Check out some of the gorgeous footage and photos from the cottage here and on Cristie’s social media pages!
One crucial element of any Belle location is a library — and this house does indeed have a reading room, which is on the third floor and can be seen in the videos shown below! Take a look at the gorgeous detailing in this room’s decor, as well as the elegant spiral staircase!
Replying to @sarahsmile5877 but we have 3 little girls in the family so it’s their playroom instead. ??♀️ #readingroom #library #bellesreadingroom #beautyandthebeast #goldenoak #goldenoakproperties #belleshouse #bellescottage #disneyhouse #disneyhome #disneyhomedecor #interiordesign #playroom #girlsplayroom #potterybarnkids @Pottery Barn Kids
One bedroom even features a Beauty and the Beast quote on the wall! Can you see the quote (which is “think of the one thing that you’ve always wanted, now find it in your mind’s eye and feel it in your heart”) in this TikTok video?
The first lamp was already there when we bought the house. We furnished the bedroom and finally changed the lamp because I wasn’t feeling the original one. #disney #goldenoak #disneyhouse #disneyhome #disneyhomedecor #frenchcountry #frenchcountrydecor #bedroom #bedroomdesign #bedroomdecor #beautyandthebeast #farmhouse #chandelier
Even though Belle, the Beast, and the French countryside are all major themes in this home’s decor, there are also lots of general Disney details to be found in the Disney Golden Oak property. There’s even a Winnie the Pooh bedroom, shown below — not to mention an absolutely adorable Bambi bedroom with bunk beds and a Little Mermaid bathroom!

Would you like to live in this Central Florida version of Belle’s cottage? If you could live in Golden Oaks and own a Walt Disney Imagineering creation inspired by any Disney character or Disney movie location, which would be the best one in your opinion?
Remember, there are still some real-life non-Golden-Oaks options out there — including this Rapunzel tower and Snow White cottage — but if Disney princess real estate is out of your budget whether or not it is in Central Florida, then the Tower Suites onboard the Disney Wish could certainly tide you over!
