It was nearly 100 degrees on the second official day of summer here in Florida, but with the opening of the NEW Frozen Ever After ride in Epcot it seems things are about to get a whole lot cooler around here. The highly anticipated Frozen ride packed in guests from all over the world making this the second longest wait time ever recorded at Walt Disney World. Wait times on opening day were as long as 300 minutes only an hour after the park opened and wrapped all the way around the world showcase. Soarin’ beats this with a standby wait time recorded at 305 minutes on New Years Eve a few years back. (Touring Plans) An unnamed cast member informed guests that wait times were actually longer for Frozen Ever After, but showed 300 minutes because that was the highest number they can display on the wait board. Sadly, I was not one of the lucky first time riders…I was actually stuck in an office working. Had I been off I would have been in line waiting at park opening just so I could go down in history as an opening day rider. I do have a Fast Pass to ride in July! Which means that I can play it cool and enjoy less then normal wait times for other attractions. Seriously, with everyone in Norway or somewhere in the world showcase waiting on line for the new attraction, even Test Track has less then a 20 minute wait!
Also new in Norway character meet and greets with Ana and Elsa!

Promise to share my Frozen Ever After experience at the end of July when I enter the wintery world of Frozen for the first time!
My children are attempting to ride Frozen Ever After today with my super awesome sister and her family.
At 8:26am this is the wait to get into the park…day two of Frozen Ever After! (pic courtesy of my super awesome sister who is waiting to get into the park!)
