It’s been a rumor for several months, but today, Walt Disney World confirmed that Frozen will take over where trolls now roam. The hit animated film, Frozen will take over the Norway Pavilion, and the current attraction, Maelstrom. In addition, there will be tons of new Frozen fun for the holidays all over Walt Disney World. So now we have to ask…do you wanna build a Snowman?
Walt Disney World confirmed that yes, Maelstrom will close for good to make room for an all new attraction that will take guests to Arendale. The attraction will take guests through some of the biggest moments of the film and will even feature some of the music. Of course, Olaf will be there and you can definitely expect to hear “Let it Go”.
No word on when the attraction will open, but it will also feature a permanent, official meeting place for Anna and Elsa. No official word on exactly when Norway will close, but Fastpass operation stops September 28th.
The fun will kick into high gear this holiday season, however, as Anna and Elsa will take over Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party at Magic Kingdom.
Queen Elsa will use her powers to transform Cinderella Castle into an ice palace every night, something that Fairy Godmother does now. Elsa, Anna, Kristoff and Olaf will be party of Mickey’s Once Upon a Christmastime Parade, and will see a whole new section, just for them.
If that’s not enough, Frozen Summer will be extended through the holidays, although we’re pretty sure it won’t be called Frozen Summer. Hollywood Studios will expand the event, with more snow and more fun at Oaken’s Trading Post.
This is very exciting for Frozen fans, and those planning a Disney vacation.
The last day of operation for Norway and Maelstrom will be October 5th. Frozen will make it’s debut in 2016. No idea what kind of attraction the ride will be, but given the short time frame, we’re going to guess that it will use the same boats and possibly track.
Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party will kick off on November 7th, and will include Frozen as part of the festivities.
