Disneyland Paris Adding ‘Frozen’ and ‘Winnie the Pooh’ to Storybook Land Canal Boats

Disneyland Paris will be adding “Frozen” and “Winnie the Pooh” scenes to Le Pays des Contes de Fées, their version of the Storybook Land Canal Boats, in 2024.

Le Pays des Contes de Fées opened at Disneyland Paris in 1994. In honor of its 30th anniversary, “Frozen” and “Winnie the Pooh” scenes will be added and the ride will be completely refurbished over the course of the next year.

Frozen” will come to life in miniature form as one of the familiar fairy tale locales in Fantasyland. Imagineers are closely working with Disneyland Paris Central Shops to create a detailed model of the majestic North Mountain covered in a thick white blanket of snow and Elsa’s iconic Ice Palace at its peak. Guests will be able to spot Anna, Elsa, Olaf, Kristoff, and Sven on their way to Wandering Oaken’s Trading Post (and Sauna).

It seems “Frozen” will replace the “Peter and the Wolf” scene.

Winnie the Pooh

Storybook Land will soon offer a new home to Winnie the Pooh and friends, located not far from the cottage of the Seven Dwarfs. It appears to be replacing the “Hansel and Gretel” scene.

“There’s something magical about taking something full scale and displaying it in miniature, it’s something Walt himself was obsessed with,” shares Keith Rector, Art Director at Walt Disney Imagineering Paris. “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.”

The Disney Parks Blog post specifically calls the attraction a “celebration of beloved Walt Disney Animation Studios stories and fables,” suggesting the live-action “Return to Oz” could be removed, but this is not confirmed.

Disneyland Paris will also be opening a new “Frozen” land as part of a major expansion to Walt Disney Studios Park.
