Frozen but Brave: Anna, Elsa and Merida to meet Disneyland Paris guests this Christmas

Christmas at Disneyland Paris featuring Disney's Frozen, Anna and Elsa

You wait for one new Disney princess meet ‘n’ greet and then two come at once. Alongside Anna and Elsa from Frozen, making their first appearance at Disneyland Paris outside of the daily parade, the upcoming Disney’s Enchanted Christmas season will also see the premiere of fiery-haired Merida from Pixar’s Brave, whom many assumed had been passed over by the Parisian resort.

Confirmed in a French press release and on the official website, the three princesses will make their meet ‘n’ greet debuts at the resort from 9th November 2014.

Anna and Elsa, stars of the still red-hot smash hit Frozen, will “hold court” at the Princess Pavilion in Fantasyland for the duration of the season. Until now, the sisters have only been featured in the daily Disney Magic on Parade and not “on the ground” with guests, no doubt leaving many a frustrated Frozen fan.

Hopefully Disneyland Paris will put to good use the Fastpass-style reservation system it often operates for the popular pavilion, to avoid the five-hour queues reported from Walt Disney World last year.

Meanwhile, the hero of Pixar’s 2012 Oscar-winner Brave will finally make a surprise arrival in Paris. Taking the spot recently occupied by Tangled star Rapunzel next to Casey’s Corner and Liberty Arcade, Merida will meet guests for the first time.

Though Brave has been featured in Disney Dreams! since 2013, it could have been presumed Disneyland Paris had passed on the eleventh princess, given the film was released two years ago now, so it’s pleasing to see another fresh character arrive here.

In other Disney’s Enchanted Christmas news, the dazzling new Christmas Tree introduced last year will of course make a return along with the Magical Christmas Wishes illumination show and the special festive Disney Dreams! of Christmas spectacular.

Like its Halloween counterpart, Disney’s Christmas Parade will also continue to grow with a brand new float named “Sugar and Spice”, said to feature Chip and Dale.
