Disneyland announces big changes to top ride – and it's good news for Frozen fans | The Sun

FROZEN and Winnie the Pooh fans are about to have something new to get excited about on their trips to Disneyland.

The theme park has revealed that new additions will be made to one of its popular rides as part of its 30th anniversary celebrations.

Le Pays des Contes de Fées, or The Land of the Fairy Tales, is a boat ride that takes guests on a gentle cruise through the park's Storybook Land.

Along the way, park-goers drift past hills, valleys and an assortment of miniature scenes from classic Disney movies.

Currently on show are the the dwarfs' mine and house from Snow White, Prince Eric's seaside castle from the Little Mermaid and the Greek temple and Mount Olympus from Hercules among others.

However, from next year scenes from Frozen and Winnie the Pooh will be added to the ride, to add to the number of stories it covers.

In a press release, the park said Frozen "will come to life in miniature form" as part of the boat trip.

The Disney 'Imagineers' are closely working a North Mountain "covered in a thick white blanket of snow" and Elsa’s "iconic Ice Palace at its peak".

The film's characters Anna, Elsa, Olaf, Kristoff and Sven will also feature in the scene.

Winnie the Pooh and Tigger will also appear in the Hundred Acre Wood, not too far from the Seven Dwarfs' cottage.

A mock-up of the scene reveals Tigger sitting on Pooh's stomach outside of the bear's tree house.

The new additions will be built as part of a complete refurbishment of the attraction. 

The mini models are all hand-crafted with a scale of one inch to one foot.

The doors of many of the buildings actually open, which designers want to do make the experience more magical for visitors.

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

“I grew up near Disneyland in California and Storybook Land has always been my favourite 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.”

Frozen fans can also look forward to a new land that is set to open at the park in the near future.

The new World of Frozen will feature an immersive ride featuring Ana, Elsa and Olaf.

This will also be a boat ride, for which guests will "embark on a journey to the North Mountain where Elsa’s Ice Palace awaits as part of the Summer Snow Day celebration".

The land will also have a Frozen-themed rollercoaster called the Wandering Oaken Sliding Sleighs.

Guests will be able to visit Arendelle, home to both Elsa's ice castle, as well as a Nordic-inspired village that will have both shops and a restaurant.

At the centre will be a huge 7.5 acre lake, just like Arendelle's fjord in the animated films, where live performances and water-based shows will take place.

Meanwhile, this mum revealed how to always skip the queue at Disneyland.
