Family fun at Disneyland Paris’ new Frozen Celebration

Disneyland’s performers are renowned for their ability to stay in character!

From singing snowmen to dancing reindeer, Disneyland Paris’ new Frozen Celebration promises feel-good family fun.

I’m sure the grinning reindeer is looking at me. I’m completely transfixed by its animatronic gaze until a flurry of movement offstage breaks the spell. What I can only describe as a woodsman-cum-John-Paul-Gaultier model dressed in traditional Scandanavian garb bounds into view. The next half-hour is filled with dancing princesses, talking snowmen and light shows.


No, this isn’t some psychedelic dream, I’m in Disneyland Paris for a sneak peek at the Frozen Celebration – a series of new shows and attractions dedicated to the film franchise running until May this year.

 

The fantastical experience begins from the moment I arrive blinking from the Eurostar service to Disneyland Paris Marne-la-Vallee and straight into a snow shower – a fitting introduction to a weekend of Frozen fun.

 

Arriving by train from London St Pancras International is surprisingly hassle-free too, from the fast-moving customs queue to the station’s proximity to the theme park – it only takes five minutes to reach the on-site Disneyland Hotel. It’s an ideal option for families on a short break who are eager to drop off their belongings and get stuck into the action, without the hassle of arranging transfers to nearby resorts.

 

I make my way into the park to check out my first attraction, the 5:30pm daily parade. All the classic Disney characters are there; Buzz Lightyear, Mary Poppins and the Genie. It takes a lot to stop me hurling myself over the railings to bear hug Baloo, as childhood memories come flooding back.
