Disney unveiled details about the “Frozen” attraction that
is in the works for an early 2016 opening in the Norway Pavilion at Walt Disney
World's Epcot park. Disney announced the attraction last fall.
The ride, which will be called “Frozen Ever After," is
being built as a re-creation of the fictional kingdom of Arendelle from the hit
animated film “Frozen,” according to the Disney Parks Blog.
Guests will visit Queen Elsa’s Ice Palace, the North Mountain and other
locations from the film before returning to the Bay of Arendelle. “Frozen” characters will be featured.
Previously, Disney said there would be a character greeting
location where guests can meet Anna and Elsa.
“Frozen Ever After” replaces the Maelstrom ride, a log chute
adventure through Norwegian-themed scenery and folklore that debuted in 1988
and closed on Oct. 5, 2014.
"Frozen” already ranks among Disney’s top franchises
and has brought in more than $1.27 billion in domestic and foreign box offices.
