The official park website describes the attraction as a “slow ride”, meaning it’s super gentle and therefore suitable for all ages. “Hoist the sails in Arendelle aboard an ancient Norwegian vessel as you set out into the wondrous wintery world of Frozen!” the site says.
As we previously told you, Frozen Ever After is part of the Norway park in Epcot, which rolled out another Frozen-themed attraction today known as Royal Sommerhus. Visitors can have a meet-and-greet area with Elsa and Anna there — so fun! Lauren Niederhiser, Assistant Project Manager at Disney Imagineering, said the team is thrilled to open this extension of the Norway Pavilion. “Their story takes place after the film,” Lauren shared. “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.” Sign us up!
