On June 21, 2016 Frozen Ever After took over Norway in the World Showcase of Epcot. Guests stood in line for over 6 hours to experience the new attraction. To read more about the Frozen Ever After opening, please see my previous post . I however, got a FastPass for a future Journey (July 18th) to Arendelle to see Anna, Elsa, Olaf and so much more! It has been a month since the initial opening and this attraction is still quite popular; although wait times are not quite as long as opening week. Planning ahead with a FastPass is highly recommended, or you could find yourself waiting in queue for as long as 90 minutes. Not to bad though, rumor has it there is much to see and do as you weave through a small cabin and make your way to the dock to board the boat.
Frozen Ever After follows the same track as it’s predecessor Maelstrom; where riders traveled through scenes of seafarers and maritime villages depicting a mythological version of Norway’s Viking days. Everything but the track has changed and the surrounding spectacles have been replaced with some high tech animations and major cuteness overload! Riders of all ages will enjoy songs and favorite phrases as the characters from the hit animation Frozen come to life before your very eyes.
As the boat winds through Arendelle and riders finally reach Elsa’s freezy fortress, the Ice Queen begins to sing, “Let it Go,” and the walls begin to shimmer and sparkle as Elsa displays the power of her ice magic and sends the boat back through a frosted corridor to the adorable and oh so cute Snowgies.
The animatronics are simply stunning and I think Disney has out done themselves with this new family favorite! Definitely worth the wait!
