Disneyland Paris will welcome two new scenes to “Le Pays des Contes de Fées,” or as it is known in English, “Storybook Land,” during an upcoming refurbishment that will debut in 2024.

The Details

Guests will soon be delighted by the addition of scenes representing “Frozen” and “Winnie the Pooh.”

Before inviting guests to the new Arendelle land over at Walt Disney Studios Park, “Frozen” will come to life in miniature form as one of the familiar fairytale 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 even be able to spot Anna, Elsa, Olaf, Kristoff and Sven on their way to Wandering Oaken’s Trading Post (and Sauna)!

The attraction will soon also offer a new home to Winnie the Pooh and friends, located not far from the cosy cottage of the Seven Dwarfs.

Reportedly, “Frozen” will replace “Peter and the Wolf” in the attraction, and “Winnie the Pooh” will replace “Hansel and Gretel.”

“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 Attraction

Since 1994, “Le Pays des Contes de Fées” has delighted Disneyland Paris guests of all ages with its whimsical atmosphere.

This peaceful boat journey is a celebration of beloved Walt Disney Animation Studios stories and fables through music, landscape, and miniatures.

Based on an original idea from Walt Disney himself, the attraction is a reinvention of the classic “Storybook Land” Canal Boats that debuted at Disneyland in 1956.

The Disneyland Paris version has several unique touches with recreations of Night on the Bald Mountain from “Fantasia,” Belle’s Village from “Beauty and the Beast,” and Rapunzel’s Tower from “Tangled.”
