The Disneyland Paris Storybook Land boat ride will add new scenes from “Frozen” and “Winnie the Pooh” in 2024.
Based on an original idea from Walt Disney himself, Le Pays des Contes de Fées (The Land of Fairy Tales) is a reimagination of the Storybook Land Canal Boats attraction that debuted at Disneyland in 1956.
The new “Frozen” and “Winnie the Pooh” scenes will join other Paris-exclusive miniatures, including Night on the Bald Mountain from “Fantasia,” Belle’s Village from “Beauty and the Beast,” and Rapunzel’s Tower from “Tangled.”
“There’s something magical about taking something full scale and displaying it in miniature – it’s something Walt himself was obsessed with,” shares Walt Disney Imagineering Art Director Keith Rector. “I grew up near Disneyland in California and Storybook Land has always been my favorite attraction. When I joined the team in Paris, we started a conversation about how we can bring new stories to Le Pays des Contes de Fées. I wanted to introduce new characters to this realm of storybook classics.”
For the First Time in Forever
In addtion to the all-new “Frozen-“themed land is currently under construction at Walt Disney Studios Park, “Frozen” will also come to life in miniature in Fantasyland at Disneyland Park.
Imagineers are creating a detailed model of the snow-covered North Mountain with Elsa’s Ice Palace at its peak. Guests will also be able to spot Anna, Elsa, Olaf, Kristoff, and Sven heading to Wandering Oaken’s Trading Post (and Sauna). Yoo Hoo!
Hip Hip Hooray for Winnie the Pooh
The Hundred Acre Woods from the Disney classic story “Winnie the Pooh” will also soon take root in Disneyland Paris, with a new home for Pooh and his pals, located close to the cozy cottage of the Seven Dwarfs.
Like Storybook land Canal Boats at the Disneyland Resort, Le Pays des Contes de Fées features miniature scenes from “Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs,” “The Little Mermaid,” and the Cave of Wonders from “Aladdin.”
The Disneyland Paris Storybook Land ride also has scenes from“The Old Mill” (formally also in California), “Babes in the Woods,” “Peter and the Wolf,” “Sword in the Stone,” and the Emerald City and Witch’s Castle from “The Wizard of Oz” and “Return to Oz.”
