‘Frozen’ fever strikes yet again as Disney announced plans to open a themed guest experience based on the hit-movie.
Fans of Anna, Elsa, and Olaf have already been waiting up to eight hours in lines at Disney World to greet their favorite characters, but now park guests will be able to immerse themselves in a mini village located in the Norway Pavilion at Epcot.
“I’m pleased to say that we’re starting construction at Walt Disney World Resort on a brand new “Frozen” attraction at the Norway Pavilion in Epcot. The new attraction, which replaces Maelstrom, will take our guests to Arendelle and immerse them in many of their favorite moments and music from the film,” said Tom Staggs, Chariman, Walt Disney Parks and Resorts.
According to Disney, construction has already started on ‘Frozen’-world, which includes “a royal greeting location where Anna and Elsa can meet our guests.” The ride will take park goers to the magical Arendelle while immersing “them in many of their favorite moments and music from the film.”
In addition to being featured in the new ride, ‘Frozen’ characters will have a bigger presence at Disney’s Magic Kingdom during the oncoming holiday season. Cinderella’s Castle will be transformed into an ice palace by Queen Elsa tarting in early November and the main characters are set to make appearances in “Mickey’s Once Upon a Christmastime Parade.”
Fans will also be able to continue the singalong fun as Frozen Summer Fun LIVE extends into the fall and winter months. Kids can even play in a new enlarged area with real snow.
The ‘Frozen’ area at Epcot is slated open early 2016.
