We have a first look of the all new Frozen Ever After attraction that will be replacing Epcot’s Maelstrom ride hopefully sometime next year. The ride is a celebration of the Frozen characters and a chance for guests to experience the film in an all new way. While not offering any new songs there is however some new twist on existing melodies from movie composers Robert Lopez and Kristen Anderson Lopez.
Frozen Ever After takes place in summer at Arendelle’s Winter Festival, think the end of the Frozen movie. While waiting in line you will have an opportunity to see (not visit) Wandering Oaken’s Trading Post and take in the wonders of Arendelle. On board you will be treated to Olaf & the reindeer Sven setting up the Winter Festival for you the guests.
First stop will be Troll Valley where you will hear the tale of how Anna & Kristoff met. After some fun in the Troll Valley you will be whisked away to sing ‘Let it Go‘ with Elsa in her Ice Palace. Who hasn’t heard that song a million times?
Next up we see the big scary snowman Marshmallow and all the mini snowman who were featured in the Disney Short Frozen Fever. There will be lots of singing and dancing and even a special fireworks celebration before you are swept off the ride with a farewell from Elsa, Anna, Olaf, Sven and Kristoff.
Disney is breaking out all the stops on this new ride featuring some new audio animatronics that will enable more lifelike animation, the same animatronics that was used in the 7 Dwarf Mine Train ride.
Overall Disney is hoping that the changes to the old Maelstrom ride will boost attendance in Epcot like Carsland did for Disney’s California adventure.
What do you think does the new Frozen Ride sound cool? Or should Disney have moved it to Fantasyland in the Magic Kingdom? Let us know in the comment box below.
