Walt Disney Parks and Resorts Chairman, Tom Staggs, announced today that Frozen will indeed be moving into the Norway Pavilion with a target opening in early 2016. The new attraction will be replacing Maelstrom, the popular attraction currently occupying the space where Arendelle will be taking up residence.
The attraction will present the looks and music made popular in Disney’s record-breaking hit, Frozen! And, there will also be, what is being called, a royal greeting area where Anna and Elsa will greet park guests! There is no word, yet, on how this may affect the meet and greet currently taking place at The Magic Kingdom.
The Frozen Summer Fun attractions are also being extended at Disney’s Hollywood Studios…well, some of them anyway. the Sing-along is set to continue and Wandering Oaken’s is going to be moved to a new location closer to the same area. It will have a larger play area, and will have real snow!
Finally, the holiday season at The Magic Kingdom will take on a bit of a different feel and Queen Elsa will transform Cinderella’s Castle into a real Ice Palace in the evenings. And, Anna, Kristoff, and Olaf will join the queen in the Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Parade during the party.
