Before you get too excited by the headline, I want to temper expectations by stating these are not park expansions. Rather, Disneyland Paris' Le Pays des Contes de Fées is getting two new scenes inspired by both Frozen and Winnie the Pooh.
For those who have never been to Disneyland Paris or are simply unfamiliar with Le Pays des Contes de Fées, it's an adorable attraction in which you voyage to magical miniature lands inspired by Disney's beloved classics. This enchanting cruise through Disney's Storybook Land is already host to charming homes and villages from Disney classics like Snow White and the Seven Dwarves, Tangled, The Little Mermaid, Fantasia, Beauty and the Beast and more.
In an age where every theme park -- even Disney itself -- tries to shock you with thrill rides, this is a calming boat ride through Disney's Storybook Land. What makes this attraction especially great is that it's one of Walt Disney's original ideas. It's a reinvention of the classic Storybook Land Canal Boats that debuted at Disneyland in 1956 with a few unique additions.
The attraction opened in 1994 and in 2024, in celebration of its 30th anniversary, Frozen and Winnie the Pooh will be added.
The Frozen miniature will be a detailed model of the majestic North Mountain, featuring Elsa's magnificent Ice Palace at its peak. There will also be a scene of Anna, Elsa, Olaf, Kristoff and Sven heading towards Wandering Oaken's Trading Post.
Near the cottage of the Seven Dwarfs, you'll enter the Hundred Acre Woods where you'll see a miniature dedicated to Pooh and friends. Based on the concept art, it looks like the miniature will be based on the iconic Bee Tree from the story.
You can check out the concept art for both new additions below:
Now, unfortunately, I've never been rich enough to travel to Disneyland Paris, but Le Pays des Contes de Fées looks like an absolutely adorable ride.
