And ‘Frozen’ fever continues! With Disney World’s newest themed ride set to open this summer, the amusement park shared a special sneak peek at what Elsa and Anna’s breathtaking attraction currently looks like. And we have to say — it’s going to be SUPER enchanting! Check out the video here!
Disney World is about to make Frozen come alive, and we could not be more excited! The animated flick will get its own ride as well as a meet-and-greet area in Epcot, and so far the attraction looks beautiful! Disney even treated fans to a behind-the-scenes tour of what the Frozen site currently looks like and you HAVE to see it for yourselves! Seriously, this attraction is going to be incredible!
Get ready to join Anna, Elsa, Olaf, and the rest of the Frozen gang in Walt Disney World by way of the Norway section in the Epcot theme park! This new Frozen world, which is still just a construction site and is set to open this summer, consists of two main attractions: a meet-and-greet area with Elsa and Anna called “Royal Sommerhus” and a ride, “Frozen Ever After.” Intrigued yet?
The rest of the world certainly has been, which prompted Disney to provide us with an amazing first-look at what Elsa and Anna’s unfinished world looks like. And so far we are LOVING what we see! “It’s truly an extension of the Norway Pavilion,” revealed Lauren Niederhiser, Assistant Project Manager at Disney Imagineering. Lauren even said in the clip that the area is based on REAL places in Norway that the Imagineers got to travel to. How authentic is THAT?
“Their story takes place after the film,” Lauren added. “Now that true love has conquered all, we are able to open up the summer cabin, invite guests in, and that’s where Anna and Elsa will meet you.” Doesn’t that sound amazing? Frozen fans will FINALLY be able to meet their favorite characters in the world they were created in!
The new ride is where the Maelstrom ride once took guests – traveling by boat – through the mythological history of Norway. And like the old attraction, riders on Frozen Ever After will also board a boat. Except this time, riders will now get an epic tour of Arendelle, the kingdom ruled by Elsa and Anna.
“You’ll float through this beautiful river and see all the magical landscapes from the movie,” revealed Michel den Dulk, executive creative director for Disney Imagineering. The ride will even include audio-animatronic figures and lots of special effects, which is so exciting! The song “Let It Go” will also make an appearance during the ride during a “key scene,” — we can’t wait!
