Disney’s Frozen Ride Opens at Epcot, 5 Hour Wait & First Video…

by Adam

Disney’s Frozen Ever After, a highly anticipated ride based on the animated blockbuster Frozen, opened this morning at Epcot. The ride is located in the Norway Pavilion in Epcot’s World Showcase and replaced one of my favorite rides, the Maelstrom boat ride.

“Frozen Ever After,” is an adventure fit for the entire family that will take guests through the kingdom of Arendelle. The fantastic Disney storytelling combined with new technology and favorite moments and music from the film will make guests feel like they stepped into the magical world of “Frozen.”

Guests will be transported to the Winter in Summer Celebration where Queen Elsa embraces her magical powers and creates a winter-in-summer day for the entire kingdom. They will also visit Elsa’s Ice Palace and the ice-blue world of the North Mountain along with other locations before returning to the Bay of Arendelle. Of course, favorite “Frozen” characters, including the Snowgies from the animated short “Frozen Fever,” will be part of this new attraction, along with the spectacular sights inspired by the film.

The Norway Pavilion’s exterior will be expanded with many unique Norwegian architectural features and the interior design of the “Royal Sommerhus” will reflect the cultural arts and crafts of Norway, providing a charming setting for guests to meet Elsa and Anna.

FastPass+ bookings for the ride opened weeks ago and those who did not take advantage are being punished with up to 5 hour long waits today!
