Guests to Walt Disney World’s Epcot will soon be able to visit the kingdom of Arendelle when the highly anticipated attraction Frozen Ever After opens in the Norway Pavilion. The ride replaces the popular Maelstrom attraction that closed in 2014.

The family adventure welcoming guests to the world of Frozen will feature the popular story of the royal sisters, hit songs and new technology for an icy trek that is sure to warm hearts. Once onboard their boat, guests will visit Arendelle for the Winter in Summer Celebration.

Other looming changes at Walt Disney World include:

  • On Soarin’ Around the World guests on board the popular Soarin’ attraction will journey to far-flung lands and fly above some of the world’s most unique natural landscapes and man-made wonders when the new Soarin’ Around the World makes its debut at Epcot.
  • Sunset Kilimanjaro Safaris, the popular Kilimanjaro Safaris attraction at Disney’s Animal Kingdom theme park will be extended for a new nighttime adventure. Guests will travel through the African savanna amid the magically extended orange glow of the setting sun and discover two species new to the attraction: African wild dogs and hyenas.
  • “Rivers of Light” is an innovative experience unlike anything ever seen in a Disney park, combining live performances, floating lanterns, water screens and swirling animal imagery. “Rivers of Light” will magically come to life on the natural stage of Discovery River, delighting guests and truly capping off a full day of adventures at Disney’s Animal Kingdom theme park.

Walt Disney World is also wrapping up a multi-year transformation of Downtown Disney into Disney Springs.
