The latest rumour on the grapevine is that a new version of Disney Dreams! of Christmas has been tested in Disneyland Paris. With Steve Davison and Katy Harris, two of the people responsible for Disney Dreams!, both having been spotted in Disneyland Park over the last couple of days, that seems very likely. It was Disney Pix who broke the news this morning, also adding that we can expect some surprises on the part of Elsa and Anna.
To me this can only mean there will be more of the sisters from Frozen in Disney Dreams! of Christmas, and begs the question as to whether there will be a whole new Disney Dreams! of Christmas, or if just a few scenes will be replaced, as was the case with the regular Disney Dreams! show.
I was, and still am, a huge fan of last year’s Disney Dreams! of Christmas, which to me was pretty much perfect. Not being as taken by Frozen as the majority of Disney fans I don’t think the show needs any more scenes from Arendelle than it already has. I get it though, almost everyone loves Frozen, so it’s the obvious thing to utilise. But isn’t it too late now? Surely to get extra bookings based on additional Frozen, they should have done a test earlier in the year, filmed an advert using the footage, and used that in TV adverts for Christmas. They could be thinking long term, and they are actually thinking of next year’s Christmas campaign. That’d be a first!
If changes are to be made, there are plenty of great Christmas films and shorts that Disneyland Paris can choose from, not least of all Belle’s Enchanted Christmas as suggested by Matthias at PixieDust.be. Of course with such little actual information, this could be included too, as could any number of new scenes.
As much as extra Frozen doesn’t excite me, Disney Dreams! of Christmas does, and what they did last year blew me away. For that reason I am more than willing to put my faith in Katy, Steve and the team, to give us a Disney Dreams! of Christmas that will once again be wowing guests of Disney’s Enchanted Christmas in Disneyland Paris. What about you dear reader, what do you think of more Frozen in Disney Dreams! of Christmas, should this rumour come to fruition?
