The ‘Frozen’ shows no signs of melting at Disney!
The corporation has announced plans for a new ‘Frozen’ attraction at the Norway Pavilion in Walt Disney World’s Epcot park in Florida.
Construction on the new attraction has already started, which will re-create Arendelle, the fictional land that serves as the backdrop to the Disney animated movie. It will also feature a greeting location where guests can meet stars Anna and Elsa, according to Tom Staggs, chairman of Disney Parks and Resorts.
The new attraction will replace Maelstrom, a log chute ride through Norwegian-themed scenery and folklore, as it will close on October 5. The new Arendelle attraction will open in early 2016.
According to Staggs, Anna and Elsa also will have a presence at Walt Disney World’s Magic Kingdom this holiday season. Starting in early November, there will be a nightly performance, during which Elsa will transform Cinderella’s Castle into an ice palace!
Additionally, the film’s characters, Anna, Elsa, Kristoff and Olaf, will also have appearances at ‘Mickey’s Once Upon a Christmastime Parade.’
‘Frozen,’ which debuted in November 2013, already ranks among Disney’s top franchises and has brought in more than $1.2 billion in the box offices.
