New Frozen Ride at Disney
Walt Disney World® released the news of the Frozen ride Epcot late last year. Since that time, Disney fans have waited in earnest for more magical details. These wishes were granted recently with a sneak peek of plans and naming for the attraction “Frozen Ever After” in advance of the 2016 opening. The Frozen Ever After plans were accompanied with a recent Disney Parks blog post on the new attraction.
When Will the Frozen Ride Open in Epcot?
The new Frozen ride at Epcot “Frozen Ever After” opened in June 2016. The Epcot Frozen ride will be in the Norway Pavilion in the park’s World Showcase. The Frozen ride will replaced what was once the Scandinavian Maelstrom water ride which had been in operation since 1988.
Park guests will ride in passenger water boats or logs through a Norwegian festival in a magical land. This Norse festival of Midsummer or Lithasblot is in the make believe land of Arendelle which is from the Frozen movie. The water ride reportedly starts with Grandpappy Troll starting the Frozen riders on their journey.
Those on the Frozen water ride at Epcot will then watch as Elsa entertains the crowd with her singing and winter majestry. Anna, Kristof, Olaf the Snowman and Sven the Reindeer will also greet you on your voyage through Arendelle and inside Elsa’s magical ice castle.
In terms of total time, the Frozen Ever After ride at Epcot is expected to be 4-5 minutes long. The Frozen Ride Epcot will feature new technology “animatronics” which has been so popular in other areas of the park.
Other larger Frozen plans at Epcot include a 13,000 sf “Meet and Greet” pavilion over 1.2 acres disclosed by an Orlando media outlet. This large pavilion will be the new guest attraction in addition to the Frozen water ride.
